Strawberry skin legs is a condition when hair follicles or large pores trap dead skin, bacteria and oil. These follicles could be inflamed, raised or otherwise. It mostly appears after one shaves. The symptoms of strawberry skin legs are little bumps accompanied with a dotted appearance on the legs like the texture of a strawberry. While it is not a medical condition, strawberry skin is indicative of poor upkeep of the skin barrier. Further lack of daily upkeep can worsen its appearance. A healthy skin barrier requires regular strawberry legs treatment.
To keep strawberry skin legs under check, one must routinely carry out moisturization on a daily basis and exfoliation every week. Dry skin significantly worsens strawberry skin legs because it hastens the accumulation of dead skin in the pores, so you must moisturize. On the other hand, exfoliation removes the dead skin that clogs up the pores. These two measures aid in reduction of skin bumps and also manage the appearance of dry, rough patches and tiny bumps, often on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks or buttocks.
The best moisturizer for dry skin is the one and the only Hibiscus Monkey’s Velvet Spray Bergamot. It is extremely effective at tackling strawberry skin legs as it immediately locks in lasting moisture in the body while you shower and softens the bumps. Its fragrance-free nature is a major plus making it ideal for sensitive skin.
Armed with ingredients like Bergamot, the Velvet Spray is antibacterial and acts as a natural cleanser. Bergamot is effective for oily skin, as it helps to unclog pores and balance sebum levels, which results in a glowing skin. In addition, Patchouli promotes skin cell regeneration, which helps with the turnover of healthy new skin. Lastly, it helps lighten discoloration spots and hyperpigmentation, thereby reducing the dotted appearance of the skin.
Exfoliation is the second critical step in strawberry legs treatment. But the key is to be extremely gentle on the skin! Extremely! This is where Hibiscus Monkey’s Rice & Shine comes into play.
Rice & Shine is unlike any other exfoliator because it removes toxins and builds up on the skin without stripping it off its essential moisture. Many exfoliators made of ingredients like walnuts or apricots tend to be abrasive on the skin. This not only worsens strawberry skin legs, but also causes micro-tears on your skin damaging the skin barrier and overtime making it more prone to bacterial growth.
Encircled with grapeseed oil, Hibiscus Monkey’s Rice and Shine also has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help in treating dry and dead skin. This can hasten healing of wounds, treating dryness and preventing clogged pores. Rosemary oil helps soothe the appearance of redness caused by strawberry skin legs. It is anti-inflammatory, protecting the skin with antioxidants and antibacterial compounds. In fact, Rosemary oil is an all-in-one solution for skin irritation. Oryza Sativa or the rice powder helps in tightening and maintaining the elasticity of the skin, leaving it plump.
Strawberry skin legs can be tackled with daily maintenance. The most effective strawberry legs treatment involves daily moisturization with the Velvet Spray and weekly exfoliation with Rice & Shine!
