1. black heads, 2. using on arms and thighs
Will this product help with minimizing the appearance of blackheads?
I was surprised to hear that this product helps to treat keratosis pilaris but would like to know if there is a body cream as $55 face cream is a little pricy to be using on arms and thighs.

on pores no more® pore effect refining cream
pore effect will help clear out the pores and make blackheads less likely. For enhanced pore cleansing abilities, use in conjunction with vacuum cleaner and pores no more cleanser for the best results.
pore effect does help clear up KP on the back of arms and top of thighs. it works even better after using dr brandt microdermabrasion body in the shower first. a little really does go a long way!

Yes, you could use it for this and it would clear it up I am sure. This product is amazing! And only the tiniest bit would be needed.
However I would suggest using the Peter Thomas Roth line of shower gels. I have the Anti-Aging one which has salicylic and glycolic acids as wells as some other moistuturizing beads. (I am reading right off the bottle!). Anyway, that is what the the Consultant at Sephora recommended for me when I asked of similar concerns and I decided to try it.
It's a little pricey for shower gel but it works better for me than any shower scrub that I have tried, because I think scrubs make the problem worse. This gel has gentle beads and a nice lather.
My other suggestion would be to buy a bottle of pure Tea Tree Oil and add it to a gentle moisturizer like Cetaphil. Tea Tree Oil is a natural antiseptic and that may help clear up your bumps. Use a smaller bottle to mix the oil and lotion. I could not begin to help you on the ratio of lotion to oil but you could look on the internet for suggestions. Natural Tea Tree Oil is very potent and many people have had sucess with it clearing up acne. It is an ingredient in this product so it is worth a shot. You can purchase it at a health food shop for under $10.00. HTH!
