11 Things You Need To Know About Skin Bumps On Your Arms

September 07, 2015 2 min read

That weird, bumpy skin on your arms and legs that won't go away? It's a condition known as keratosis pilaris and it is a sort of permanent goose bump. Here are 11 things you should take note of if you suffer from KP: 1. You're not alone.  1 in 3 people have KP, so you're in it with a third of the population. 2. You're healthy.  It's not a marker of poor health or a sign of disease. It's a cosmetic problem that is just there to annoy you. 3. Young, fair females are most prone.  The condition is most rampant in young females with light skin tones. But it can be present in people of all ages, races, genders and skin tones. 4. It's hereditary.  You got it from your mama. Or your dad. If a parent has it, the pass-along risk is 50%. [bctt tweet="11 Things You Need To Know About Skin Bumps On Your Arms"] 5. It shows up in childhood.  It gets worse when you hit puberty, but often it becomes more mild as you age and can vanish in later years. 6. It's caused by keratin. It's a result of excess keratin being built up in your body that blocks up your hair follicles and causes bumps. 7. Rarely it moves locations.  Some people have the condition spread to their upper back and forearms. 8. It's symmetrical.  It always appears on both arms, both legs and both sides of the face. 9. It surfaces in winter. It can be more noticeable when the chilly weather hits because of the lack of humidity in the air. 10. It's a form of dry skin.  Like eczema, KP is just another extreme form of dry skin. But unlike eczema, it can be much harder to get rid of. Exfoliation helps when combined with non-soap cleansers and moisturizers. 11. It's nothing to feel insecure about.  Don't hide away because you're embarrassed of your KP! It's really common, and not terribly noticeable even when it's cold out. Show some skin!   What are your thoughts? Do you suffer from KP? Source: Buzzfeed

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
