How to soothe ‘Strawberry Legs’
Ever stepped out of the shower and looked down at your legs and seen loads of little red spotty marks all over? Well, it could be a skin issue known as ‘Strawberry Legs’.
Strawberry Legs can be a real pain and cause a lot of body anxiety, so we’ve come up with a way to help calm and soothe this irritation:
What exactly causes Strawberry Legs?
Strawberry Legs are dotted red (and sometimes black) spots that look a little bit like strawberry seeds. They’re harmless but nonetheless don’t look great. Strawberry Legs are usually caused by clogged-up pores or hair follicles. It can also be down to an issue known as Folliculitis (which is the damage to the hair follicle that allows dirt and bacteria to enter during shaving or other abrasion to your skin) or even from just having dry skin. Dryness can cause a thing known as Keratosis Pilaris, meaning tiny red bumps on skin.
