They maybe the skin condition that causes acne-like bumps that look like goose bumps, from a build up of keratin, a natural protein in the skin, which affects almost half of the planet and most commonly found on the upper-arms, but it can also be plagued in such areas as the face, thighs, back, chest, and buttocks. Those bumps are called keratosis pilaris, a form of eczema, They pop up more in winter because the lack of humidity in the air makes skin drier. A combo of gentle exfoliating and moisturizing can help. We like the Bobbi Brown Beach Body Scrub, $35 because the beads are soft on skin yet strong enough to get the job done.
Arm Bumps! Yay!
