My search function doesn't bring anything up but I know there's been plenty of discussion about this before!

Time to get them sorted for summer so what's the best one please? TIA

Heal balm with as much urea as possible.

Aveeno daily body lotion worked for me. You have to moisturise every day to make the bumps go away.

Thank you. I do use Aveeno actually, but think I need the urea!

If you are talking about keratosis pilaris you can get specific products for it.!i thing Paula's choice do one.
I think salycic acid is also good. I use Clinique mild claryfying lotion which is a mild salycic acid exfoliant and after I have done my face I swipe the cotton bud on my arms to make the most of it.

I find the lotion for I growing hairs I bought for my legs helps mine! Followed by a urea moisturiser. Eating plenty of vitamin Aaked the most difference - I have a bit of liver pate on toast twice a week and you'd have to look very closely indeed to see my keratosis pilaris now.

Eucerin Intensive lotion?

it sounds like keratosis pilaris. I second the Paula's Choice stuff - Resist Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion. Works wonders.

I use Paula's choice after I've wiped the cotton wool on my face - it works.

Soap and Glory "Whipped Clean" shower gel worked for me.

Eucerin urea cream has made a big difference for me.

Thanks all- I've just ordered the Paula's Choice stuff. Fingers crossed!
