Dr. Audrey Kunin is the dermatologist behind the great skin care brand DERMAdoctor. I was lucky enough to check out the DERMAdoctor flagship retail store that has recently opened in Kansas City, where doctor Kunin comes from and where I live. It is a very nice store and stocks all of DERMAdoctor’s amazing products!
I have recently tried a couple of items from the KP Duty line that was created to treat Keratosis Pilaris (KP). This is a common skin disorder, typified by “chicken skin” bumps on upper arms, thighs, torso, buttocks and occasionally the cheeks. Excess skin forms around individual hair follicles, creating the characteristic minute, rough, grater-like bumps.. The products I tried are:
KP Duty dermatologist body scrub with chemical + physical medi-exfoliation ($44.00) This scrub claims to help dry skin, flaky patches and chicken skin bumps. KP Duty Body Scrub acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion session in one, delivering serious medi-exfoliation. Some of the jobs it does is to allow dermatologist-recommended skin therapies to provide deeper, more thorough results and helps prepare skin for self tanning and post-bathing treatments (including body acne, keratosis pilaris, dry skin concerns, shaving bumps, ingrown hairs and bleaching).
Contains active ingredients including 15% Buffered Glycolic Acid – Smoothes the appearance and improves the overall texture of the skin. Superior alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) chemically exfoliates the skin by breaking down the substance that binds epidermal cells together, Lactic Acid – Potent AHA that retexturizes the surface of the skin by diminishing the cohesion of surface skin cells and stimulating cell renewal, Azelaic Acid – Offers antibacterial, keratolytic and comedolytic properties: inhibits the growth of bacteria in the hair follicle while normalizing the disordered growth of skin cells and reducing pigment abnormalities in the skin, Green Tea, Willow Bark & Algae Extracts – Reduces inflammation, redness and irritation while providing antioxidant protection, and Polyethylene Buffing Beads – Delivers non-abrasive physical exfoliation by lifting away dead skin cells.
KP Duty dermatologist moisturizing therapy for dry skin ($36.00) – KP Duty is a concentrated moisturizingtreatment with: Glycolic Acid – Powerful skin smoothing AHA, Sodium Glycolate – Glycolic Acid salt, buffered to prevent irritation, Green Tea – Botanical antioxidant powerhouse contains EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) to soothe and calm the skin, Urea – Dermatologist recommended humectant, Sodium Hyaluronic – Potent hydrating agent Dimethicone – Barrier/occlusive agent – reduces moisture evaporation.
I don’t have KP, but these products really helped my skin which becomes dry and flaky when the weather turns cold. There is no scent to the products, which is nice. Some lotions have such strong fragrances that they irritate and compete with perfumes. The scrub is so luxurious plus I saw a difference in my skin’s texture after a few uses. The lotion is very thick and moisturizing, but non-greasy, too.
Both products are dermatologist tested & approved, non comedogenic, non irritating, allergy tested, fragrance free, dye free, and pH balanced with no animal testing.
