There is nothing better than the feeling of freshly shaved legs. Smooth, soft, luxurious. Unless you have strawberry legs and then freshly shaved legs, just feel like a slightly less prickly version of hairy legs.

Strawberry legs plague millions of people, and it seems like a global affliction that nobody has the answers to. There are answers, though, and they’re really quite simple and easy to achieve so that you can have baby soft legs.

Here you can find all the remedies to strawberry legs!

Exfoliate

Before you shave, you must exfoliate. Exfoliating will remove all the dead skin from your legs and any area you exfoliate, planning to shave. Doing this will ensure that all your razor shaves are hair.

Getting dead skin cells caught in your razor can result in it becoming blunt much faster and not being as effective in removing actual hairs. Your shave will also not be as close because you will be shaving against dead skin.

Open Pores

Before you shave, sit in a warm bath for about fifteen minutes so that your pores open up. Once you have done this, you can begin shaving with moisturizing shaving cream or a normal bar of soap.

Opening the pores means that the hair follicle will be more open, and you will be able to get a much closer shave than you would if you tried to shave as soon as you got into the bath when your pores are still closed.

Quality Razors

Buying the three-pack of razors at the gas station because you forgot your razor at home and you’re on a trip is fine. However, using the three-pack of razors all the time after that just because they are cheaper is not a good idea.

You should always use a good-quality razor to get the closest shave you can and prevent any small nicks. The best type of razor to use is a men’s facial razor because it is gentle and effective.

Careful Shaving

Many people have been taught that you should shave against the direction of your hair growth. This belief might have come from the fact that this is the only way you can wax or that it is easier to shave up than shave down.

However, it is important to remember that when you are shaving, the best way to avoid ingrown hairs is to shave with the direction of your hair growth. Doing this ensures that you are not irritating the hair follicle.

Moisturize

Once you have finished shaving and are getting out of the bath, make sure that you apply moisturizer to your legs while your pores are still open so that it can truly soak into the pores and moisturize your skin effectively.

Ensure that you use a fragrance-free moisturizer because if you use a moisturizer with a fragrance in it, you will most likely irritate the hair follicle, and you might end up with an allergic reaction on your legs.
