How To Get Rid Of Strawberry Legs
A strawberry’s exterior is full of small, black bumps or seeds. While they might look good on a strawberry, they don’t look good on your legs. If you’ve never heard of the term ‘Strawberry Legs’, let us enlighten you: it’s a condition where there are dark spots or dots all over your legs. While they can occur as naturally as the seeds on a strawberry’s skin do, they are sadly not as appealing on your body.
Strawberry legs are caused by enlarged pores or hair follicles that have become clogged. This may be from bacteria, oil, and dead skin that might be trapped inside your pores. In technical terms, clogged pores are also known as “open comedones”. When they are exposed to air, like after shaving, for example, the clogged oil oxidizes and as a result, turns black, causing a black dotted appearance all over your legs.
There are a few things you can do to prevent and get rid of existing strawberry bumps, and they’re not as complicated as you might think:
- Stop shaving so much! Shaving is one of the most common causes of strawberry legs. Try and look for other hair removal techniques, like waxing, epilating, or laser hair removal. It might be more expensive, but it’ll be worth it in the long run. If you do end up shaving once in a while, use a good moisturizer that will help purify your pores afterward, like the AYAM Dead Sea Minerals + Caviar Body Lotion.
- Exfoliate! You should be exfoliating regularly to make sure that you get rid of any dead skin cells that make your skin look dull and bumpy. Make sure to use ingredients that deep clean your pores, like products that have Dead Sea Minerals, Vitamin C, and Aloe Vera. Try our AYAM Dead Sea Minerals + Aloe Vera Body Lotion for a soothing, post-exfoliating treatment.
- Moisturize your skin regularly. And by regularly, we mean at least daily! After showering, take advantage of your open pores and use your favorite moisturizer to seal in the necessary hydration. Try the AYAM Dead Sea Minerals + Collagen Body Lotion to help firm your skin while you’re at it, or use the AYAM Dead Sea Minerals + Argan Oil Body Lotion for a relaxing and soothing experience.
So, there you have it: drop the razor, get to exfoliating and grab ahold of the AYAM Dead Sea Minerals + Caviar Body Lotion or your favorite moisturizer to cure your strawberry legs and prevent them from happening again!
