Trying to find a link.
It bloody works, Soap and Glory nose scrub!

YcLaT Sat 18-Jul-09 19:32:34

works on pimply buttocks too

It is apparently caused by something in fizzy juice....

I take a pan scrub sponge to mine on a weekly basis hmm

Pregnancy worked for me.

Lush's Buffy is the cure for any pimply bits!

YcLaT Sat 18-Jul-09 19:34:43


I've used it every day since tuesday. Works better than pan scrub.

YcLaT Sat 18-Jul-09 19:35:36

Will have to check out the Lush one on my pimply thighs.

Lancome Gommage Peau de Peche is pretty good.

surely any scrub would work then
and lots of moisturiser

condition is called Keratosis Pilaris.

exfoliation and EHA's or special cream from the docs also works. I only bothered for my wedding but am finding pregnancy is reducing it too.

Oh and sunshine reduces it too.

Mine don't get desperately pimply...

I have been prescribed a cream which treats rosacea and oilatum and another time I got a cream for acne - that one was the most successful.

I also used vitamin E capsules - cut them open and used the oil on my arms.

It's just the maintenance I find annoying.

I am a woman who never moisturises.

MARGOsBeenDrinkingTea Sat 18-Jul-09 20:03:34

exfoliation irritates KP

So this stuff work with a week?

Adds to wishlist

YcLaT Sat 18-Jul-09 20:05:16

Sunshine doesn't work on mine.
What is EHA?, going to google it.

My pimples get worse as my arms get flabbier.

YcLaT Sat 18-Jul-09 20:06:08

It works bloody miracles on mine Margo.

Thandeka Sat 18-Jul-09 20:11:20

Maybe its AHA- alpha hydroxy acids-
its summat acidic anyhoo.
