answer 1
It took about 2-4 weeks for me to see results. And yes, you have to continue using the cream or else the bumps will return. (Unless you find another way to exfoliate your skin really, really well after you stop using the cream or scrub.)

Immediately softer because of lotion effect. Less bumps for me within days. At full effect in about a week or two. This is with twice a day application. Scrub didn't make much difference for me, but I tried a sample of the primer and plan to buy some because it made a HUGE improvement in my results which noticeably subsided a couple days after my sample was gone.

The sales associate had told me that it would take about two weeks with twice daily application before I would notice a difference. I have been successful at remembering to do it at least once a day and have been doing so for almost 2 weeks. The result is amazing and the bumps are all but gone. So far, so good!

I saw results within a few days. I can depend on how long you've had the condition and if you've been trying any other medications on it. You should coat your hands with another, non-medicated cream before using KPD, and then wash it off of your hands when your finished applying it to the affected areas. It tends to make my cuticle crack if I don't wash it out properly.

I use this product (everyday) and the KP Duty scrub (every other day) together and the results are instantaneous (and amazing!). However, you have to keep using them or the bumps will come back. In my opinion the KP Duty products are definitely worth the money; they work 10X better than any other scrub and moisturizer I've ever tried.

Question
what is the difference in KP duty and KP double duty?
I am wondering which of the "kp" brands would work best for me? I have these bumps that will not go away... Eurecien will not take care of it, it is not dry skin... when I get in the sun they get more noticeable, they are awful.. but it really doesn't look like what I would think of as "chicken skin"? they are rough bumps???????? I am lost. sorry if i have lost you too

answer 2
KP "double" duty is merely a twin pack of the KP duty creams, which is a discounted price instead of purchasing them separately. This is because many people use this cream daily and buy it frequently.

If you aren't sure if you have KP talk to a dermatologist

sounds like you have KP. try a 20% urea lotion (get it from the pharmacist over the counter) if you want a cheaper alternative to KP Duty.

answer 4
KP and KP "Double" Duty are one and the same. Just different quantities. I first bought the KP Duty and tried the bottle out. The next time I shopped for it I purchased the KP "Double" Duty which is a 2-pack. It saved me a few bucks. This works on rough skin as well as my KP. My knees and elbows are softer since I started applying it at the same times as my KP areas. Wash it off of you hands when your done, though. It can crack the skin/cuticles because it is so affective.

What you describe sounds like KP to me; I have similar bumps on my upper left arm, and the KP Duty scrub and moisturizer have done wonders for me. KP Duty and KP Double Duty are actually the same product; it only says "Double" on the box because it contains two tubes instead of one. Hope that helps.

answer 6
Keratosis Pilaris might be what those bumps are. Too much protein in the follicle causes them. What can work are creams/lotions with urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, tretinoin, or vitamin D. KP works, but if you have sensitive skin it can just replace the bumps with an allergic rash (what happened to me). You could try exfoliation (gentle!!) and a product with salicylic acid (most acne products use this) and lots and lots of moisturizer. I love Korres body lotions for my bumps. Works fast and no allergic reactions.

I use my fingertips and palm of my hand so I can target the KP areas directly. Loofah + scrub might be too abrasive, so I'd do that sparingly.

use their body scrub instead of a loofah. i found that using a loofah or any other exfoliant didn't work as well as using both kp duty products together. but a loofah is better than nothing!

If this has been diagnosed as KP, then you can use a small amount, sparingly, on his affected areas. Long exposure to the sun will cause more break-outs. Make sure he wears sleeves that cover the affected skin on his arms and hats to cover his face. KP will make him more sensitive to sun exposure, too. Unfortunately, all people with KP and all medications/creams to treat it will be slightly adversely affected by sun exposure.

On the web site it states 2 years and up. It does make you very sensitive to sun light. The areas I use it on burn very quickly (I normally tan without burning) so I would use with caution on kids since it is hard to assure they have ample sunscreen at all times.

answer 4
This product should not make your skin feel greasy, but I would give it time to sink into the skin. You can use this all over the body if desired as it does help to gently exfoliate the skin, or just apply to the area of concern (such as the backs of the arms). As this product contains glycolic acid, I would suggest using it as a nighttime treatment and using their Body Guard SPF 30 as your daytime body sunscreen/ moisturizer. Glycolic acid makes the skin more photo-sensitive so this is why a sunscreen is important. While this can be used in the daytime as well (under sunscreen), for your specific concern I would suggest using this at night.

Yes, but sparingly. You'll have to wear sunscreen over it as it makes the skin more susceptible to sunburn. I wear a hat for long exposure days along with daily use of an SPF 15. Hot climates make KP worse even without sun. Make sure you've been properly diagnosed by a physician, too.

I do not recommend this for use on the face. For treating KP on the face I would suggest a good skin-care routine. I used to have KP on my face but now I do not after I started being very vigilant about my skin. One of the things that I do use is a night cream with salicylic acid. It will do wonders!

KP is hard, because often things work for a few months, and then stop working. In the past I have switched between using a high content Urea cream called Topix Urea 40 and a 17% Glycolic cream by Glytone. Make sure that you keep your skin hydrated, don't take long showers/long hot baths, and if your KP is on your legs, make sure to change out your razors weekly and use lots of shaving cream!
