Got Strawberry Skin Legs? Try This 4-Step Winter Routine!

Are those rough, strawberry-like bumps on your legs making you feel conscious about your legs? Or stopping you from flaunting your favorite outfits? We've all been there! 

During winters, as the temperatures drop, our skin tends to act up, leaving us with the dreaded strawberry skin legs. And that's why we are here with the ultimate solution to your winter skin blues. Let's dive into the details and bid those bumps goodbye for good with our ultimate strawberry skin treatment!

Understanding Strawberry Skin Legs: What's the Deal?

Strawberry skin, scientifically known as Keratosis Pilaris, is a common skin condition characterized by small, red bumps that resemble the seeds on a strawberry. It's caused by a buildup of keratin around hair follicles, resulting in rough, bumpy skin. During winter, when our skin tends to be drier, these little bumps can become more noticeable. And that’s why a  strawberry skin treatment becomes very essential. 

Here's a 4-step routine to effectively care for strawberry skin legs:

Step 1: Gentle Exfoliation with Rice and Shine

Get yourself Hibiscus Monkey's Rice and Shine -  our best selling strawberry skin treatment! This rice-based exfoliator gently removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and impurities, leaving your skin healthier and more radiant. Just scoop it out, apply it in the shower on wet skin, and massage gently in small circles. Remember, don't scrub too hard! Use this strawberry skin treatment once or twice a week, depending on your skin type, and follow up with our velvet spray moisturizer for best results.

Step 2: Remember this Shaving Hack for Silky Smooth Skin

Proper shaving techniques can make all the difference. Ensure you're using a clean razor and applying soft pressure to avoid irritation. And here's a game-changing hack: apply Hibiscus Monkey's Velvet Spray before shaving! This in-shower moisturizer creates a protective barrier, allowing the razor to glide smoothly without causing friction or pressure on the skin. 

Step 3: Ditch the Hot Showers

While it's tempting to indulge in a hot shower, especially during winter, it can actually worsen strawberry skin. Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and exacerbating the condition. Opt for lukewarm water instead to keep your skin happy and hydrated.

Step 4: Daily Moisturizing with Velvet Spray

Remember that pro tip hack we just gave you? Well, that’s actually an in-shower moisturizer, which is a perfect strawberry skin treatment that just seals the deal!  

It's a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that can be applied in the shower on wet skin. Massage it in, rinse off excess with a light round of water, and pat dry with your towel. You won't need any additional lotions or moisturizers – it's a one-stop solution for velvety, smooth skin.

With these simple steps, Hibiscus Monkey's Rice and Shine plus Velvet Spray, you'll be well on your way to banishing strawberry skin legs and embracing a winter-ready glow in no time. So, get ready to strut your stuff with confidence! Don’t forget to grab them today :)
