Understanding strawberry legs and how to treat them
Would you believe there’s a scenario where strawberries are something you would want to avoid?
Hard to believe, right?
We aren’t talking about the delicious summertime fruit. Instead, we’re addressing a condition many try to avoid known as strawberry legs.
Strawberry legs can occur for both men and women, and despite the title, can appear anywhere on the body that has hair follicles. Sometimes, it can lead to folliculitis, an inflammation of the hair follicle.
So, what’s the solution to this fruity puzzle? There are a few, but Yahoo!Life points out that laser hair removal is the best way to address the issue once and for all. Other ways to improve strawberry legs include the use of an exfoliator with salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Yahoo! also suggests a number of moisturizers and exfoliants that will aid the condition.
You’ll also want to pay attention to some of your workout habits. Regular exercise may contribute to your strawberry legs turning into folliculitis. If you sweat, dry off as soon as possible. Sweaty clothes can trap bacteria in the follicle and make the condition worse.
