‘Strawberry legs’ – It seems to be the newest viral insecurity that has crept up on social media in the last few years. Essentially, strawberry legs are the appearance of hair follicles. However, since they appear as dark small dots similar to the pitted skin of a strawberry, this is how they get their name, also known as Keratosis Pilaris.
So, although completely safe we still get asked ALL the time ‘how do I get rid of strawberry legs?’ Here are team glow hubs top body care tips to improve the appearance of strawberry legs!
Step 1: Exfoliate regularly! Exfoliating will reduce the dead skin cells that can build up in the pore causing its appearance to be darker. We may be biased but our Go Deep AHA body scrub will leave your skin feeling AMAZING.
