Scrub Away the Chicken Skin Bumps

At some point or another, I think just about everyone has gotten those dry patches of tiny, hard bumps that feel like chicken skin on the backs of your thighs or arms (or even on your rear end). The combination of winter's cold, dry air, long sleeves and heavier fabrics always seems to aggravate it for me. What I never knew was, this annoying and embarrassing condition actually has a name – keratosis pilarsis (KP) – and it is treatable.

Unbelievably, nearly 50 percent of the world's population experiences keratosis pilarsis. I've even noticed it on my kids, which is not surprising considering an even higher number of children (50 to 80 percent) have KP and the condition is hereditary. Thankfully, DERMAdoctor's founder, Audrey Kunin, M.D., made it her mission to develop the first products specifically designed to treat this common, chronic issue. The KP Duty line has been a skin-saver for my entire family.

Along with rich, healing KP Duty moisturizer, DERMAdoctor’s KP Duty body scrub works to eliminate the problem at its source. KP occurs when surplus skin cells build up around individual hair follicles. Sometimes a hair is unable to reach the surface and becomes trapped beneath the debris, creating the “chicken skin” effect. Treating KP is all about smoothing away the bumps

Medical-quality exfoliation requires more than just scrubbing. Dry skin, flaky patches and KP bumps are held together by bonds that physical exfoliation alone can’t break. So KP Duty body scrub acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion session in one, using the best dermatologist-recommended skincare ingredients including glycolic, lactic and azelaic acids.

While the formula is working its magic, smooth, non-abrasive beads lift away dead skin cells without causing irritation. Calming, anti-redness agents including green tea, willow bark and algae soothe my skin, leaving it smooth and radiant. Every time I use KP Duty (once or twice per week in the shower), my skin feels literally born again. KP Duty body scrub is hypoallergenic and has no dyes or perfumes, so it is always gentle on my sensitive skin – and even gentle enough to use on my kids. Now all of us have skin as soft as a baby’s.

Winter skin does not have to be dry, itchy and bumpy. Get KP Duty on the case and kiss the chicken skin goodbye.
