Strawberry Skin 101

The ABCs of Strawberry Skin. Everything You Need To Know About Strawberry Skin.

Welcome to Hibiscus Monkey’s everything you need to know about strawberry skin guide! ����

Here is everything you need to know about strawberry skin legs and effective strawberry skin treatment.  

Strawberry skin or strawberry skin legs refers to the appearance of darkened pores or small black dots on the skin, resembling the seeds on a strawberry. It is often associated with hair follicles clogged with oil, dead skin cells, or bacteria.

What causes strawberry skin? 

1. Hair Follicle Blockage: Strawberry skin legs occur when the hair follicles become clogged. This blockage with the accumulation of dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and bacteria, leading to bumpy dotted texture on the skin aka strawberry skin legs.

2. Ingrown Hair: When a hair grows back into the skin instead of growing out of the follicle, it can cause inflammation and result in strawberry skin legs. 

3. Dry Skin: When the skin lacks proper moisture, it can result in the buildup of dead skin cells, leading to clogged follicles. Further dryness leaves your skin susceptible to irritation when you shave i.e. razor burns and folliculitis, which further worsens the appearance of dotted bumps on skin.

4. Shaving: Frequent shaving with dull razors can contribute to strawberry skin legs. 

5. Lack of exfoliation: This leads to the accumulation of dead skin cells, which can block the hair follicles contributing to the appearance of strawberry skin legs. 

What is an effective strawberry skin treatment? 

When used together, moisturization and exfoliation can provide comprehensive care for strawberry skin legs. Moisturizers help to keep the skin hydrated and supple, while exfoliators work to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. By incorporating both practices into your skincare routine, you can target the underlying causes of strawberry skin legs and promote smoother, healthier-looking skin.

Our PRO TIP is to use these two Hibiscus Monkey products in tandem to get rid of strawberry skin legs:

1. Rice & Shine body exfoliator removes dead skin layers, impurities, and excess oil, unclogging pores and improving skin texture which is needed for the strawberry skin treatment. What makes it extremely effective is that it unclogs debris without stripping the skin of its essential moisture.

This is KEY! Harsh abrasive physical exfoliators will worsen your skin. As part of your strawberry skin treatment, we recommend using it 1-2 times a week to reduce the appearance of strawberry skin and promote a smoother complexion.

1. Velvet Spray Bergamot is an in-shower moisturizer that deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin deeply instantly. It locks in moisture daily in the shower, keeping dryness at bay and smoothening the appearance of strawberry skin legs overtime.

Regular use of Velvet Spray Bergamot keeps the skin moisturized, balanced, and healthier-looking aiding as a best option for strawberry skin treatment. The presence of Bergamot helps reduce the pigmentation that
comes from strawberry skin making it a key product in your strawberry skin treatment. 

By using the Rice and Shine exfoliator and Velvet Spray Bergamot as part of your strawberry skin treatment, you can effectively address strawberry skin legs at home ��
