Tips and tricks to get rid of your strawberry skin

Have you ever heard of strawberry skin? Usually, after shaving legs, many people get this type of skin. The skin looks like strawberry seeds. It happens when oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells get trapped in your skin.

Viral Strange has compiled 7 tips and tricks for you to get rid of your strawberry skin. Please be cautious if you are allergic to any ingredient mentioned in the article. It is suggested to get a medical professional’s advice.

1. Shave downwards

The first tip is to try and shave downwards. We are used to shaving upwards because it is easier to get rid of hair.

However, shaving downwards and in shorter strokes might help you not get irritated or strawberry-lookalike skin.

2. Use ice or a cold cloth

After shaving, try to put some ice or a cold cloth in the area that you shaved. Keep it on for a few minutes to chill the area. It will take away the redness caused by the razor.

3. Moisturize every day

Strawberry legs often happen because they lack moisture. To make your skin look better, try to moisturize your skin as often as you can. Hydrated skin will have a better texture.

4. Put alpha hydroxy acids in your lotions

Exfoliating is another way to have clean skin. Try to put alpha hydroxy acids in your lotions. It helps in cleaning out the pores, and removing dark spots, and dead skin cells. Don’t forget to moisturize after.

5. Dry brush

Dry brushing is a great way to exfoliate your skin. It helps in bettering blood circulation and opens up your pores. Your skin will be smoother and it will glow.

It is suggested to shower with cool water to prevent strawberry legs because hot water might sting. However, if you feel comfortable showering in hot water, dry brush after your bath.

6. A mixture of baking soda

The final tip is a mixture of ingredients that will clean out all your pores. The featured ingredient is baking soda.

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds. Put together with some other ingredients, it will clean out your pores and get rid of those dead skin cells.

The mixture is made of:
• Half a cup of oatmeal
• 3 tablespoons of baking soda
• 2 tablespoons of honey
• 1 tablespoon of cream

Mix them all. Apply the texture to your legs. Wait for 15 minutes to work, and then rinse it off with cool water.

7. Shaving < Waxing

Nowadays there are many options to get rid of body hair. Shaving is the fastest way, of course. However, consider stopping shaving and going for a wax, instead.

Waxing might sound painful, but actually, it is more gentle to the skin. You will get fewer irritations and the hair will grow lesser and lesser in time.
