what are strawberry legs?

strawberry legs, as the name suggests, make your legs resemble the skin of a strawberry. when dirt, oil, and ingrown hairs get stuck in your pores, they can darken when exposed to air, and give you that dreaded strawberry leg effect.

shaving can also lead to strawberry legs. when you shave with dull razors, or without shaving cream can pull your leg hairs, irritate them, and cause the appearance of strawberry legs.

  • change your blades

    like we said before, make sure you’re using a sharp razor when you take your legs to shave town. a sharp, fresh blade will cut the hair, instead of pulling it and irritating your sensitive little follicles.

    don’t worry about nicks with a fresh blade, it’s actually the old, dull blades that are more likely to cause nicks and cuts. a dull blade pulls your hair, and can pull your skin into the path of the blade. (rude!)

  • use shave gel

    sure, it’s another step to your shave, but using a shave cream or gel is so important. especially if you don’t want strawberry legs. shave gel helps your blade glide over your skin, and will let you know where you’ve shaved, so you don’t go over the same spot too many times and give yourself a case of razor burn.

  • how can i treat strawberry legs?

    if you already have strawberry legs, it’s not too late to help your poor legs out. the best thing to do if you’ve got a case of strawberry legs is moisturizing. dry skin can make your symptoms worse, so get out there and find a bottle of your favorite lotion and lather those ladies up.
