DERMAdoctor KP Duty

Dr. Kunin developed DERMAdoctor to target common (but often overlooked) skin conditions and concerns. While she has tons of products, it was the KP Duty line that really jumped out at me. My Keratosis Pilaris has continuously worsened with age and no doctor or dermatologist recommended anything that would help. Thankfully that all changed after I bought the KP Duty Body Scrub and Dermatologist Moisturizing Therapy. Half of all people have this condition. So most of you are probably familiar with Keratosis Pilaris. But if you aren’t:

KP is a common skin disorder typified by ‘chicken skin’—bumps commonly found on upper arms, thighs and torso. Excess skin forms around individual hair follicles, creating the characteristic minute, rough, grater-like bumps. This disorder is particularly likely to affect anyone prone to eczema, asthma or hay fever.

KP Duty Body Scrub is a heavy duty exfoliation. Don’t even think about using this on your face. The scrub has large granules but doesn’t burn. I had to ease into using it as the first two uses caused some redness and peeling. This medical-quality treatment combines a mini-chemical peel and microdermabrasions.

After exfoliating, I used the Dermatologist Moisturizing Therapy. This rich lotion with hyaluronic acid and texturizing dimethicone kept my dry skin hydrated and plump. But there was still active ingredients at work exfoliating: glycolic acid and urea soften and smooth dry and rough skin. Green tea works as an antioxidant.

After a couple of weeks, my skin was smoother with diminished red spots. Each passing week of use shows an improvement. This definitely will be in my long-term routine.
