All my life I've battle with body acne, trying the best products, hiding the arms, and trying to be the less noticeable possible. I went to Sephora last month, and not aware of my problem, I talk to the skin consultant about my "little acne pumps" in my arms. To my surprise, one of my most problematic areas -my arms- did not have acne. Those little red bumps on the backs of your arms—they're not pimples. They're a genetic condition called keratosis pilaris, which half of the population has. There's no cure, but they are easy to treat. Twice a day, slather on a moisturizer with lactic acid or urea, which will dissolve the thickened skin.
I was recommended KP Duty by Dermadoctor. This is basically a very heavy, almost harsh scrub, only intended for problem areas of chicken skin in your body. Do not use on face! As described on Sephora.com is "a dermatologist body scrub with chemical and physical medi-exfoliation." KP Duty body scrub delivers serious medi-exfoliation for deeper, more thorough results. This dual-action chemical and physical exfoliator blends the best of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion into a single, easy-to-use treatment. Smooth, non-abrasive, synthetic beads lift away dead skin cells.
It also "helps prepare skin for self tanning and post-bathing treatments (including body acne, keratosis pilaris (chicken skin bumps), shaving bumps, ingrown hairs, and bleaching) and is infused with green tea and willow bark to reduce irritation and redness typically associated with routine in-office exfoliation." It really lives up to its word! KP Duty leaves my skin so smooth and noticeably lighter, removes all the rough skin and I'm left with baby-like smooth skin. Before using this product, ask a professional or Sephora consultant to see if this product is right for you.
