How to Get Rid of Strawberry Legs and Strawberry Skin.
Whether it's razor rash or strawberry skin, Dr Tong suggests using shaving cream and regularly changing your razors if possible. As for other remedies, Dr Tong offered some more solutions if the shaving cream isn't cutting it.
"This is one of the only areas of the skin that I recommend the use of an exfoliant, which can be followed by a moisturiser. Laser hair removal, despite requiring multiple sessions, can be effective in removing leg hair, and is preferable over hot waxing or the use of epilators."
Once I'd digested this information, I tried to think of the last time I'd changed the head on my razor. As the months ticked over in my head, I realised I'd been using the same razor head for over a year.
Yes, over a year. And here I was wondering why I was experiencing this strawberry skin situation.
So, I decided to completely overhaul my approach to shaving, starting with a new razor.
I Found the Best Reusable Razor in Australia.
Instead of just swapping out my razor head, I decided to try a new brand called Nära Shave.
Not only do these non-plastic razors look bougie AF (and kind of old school cool) on your shower ledge, but they're also more sustainable, and damn did I experience the closest leg shave of my life.
I'd noticed over a few months that the strawberry legs situation was worsening (likely due to the old razor which we shall now never speak of again), and despite exfoliating and moisturising, I couldn't shift it.
That's when the Nära Shaving Starter Kit - Matte Gold swooped in and saved the day.
In fairness, I think it was both the razor and the shaving oil that contributed to the tone and texture of my skin returning to normal and the lumps and bumps disappearing, as well as regular exfoliation and moisturising daily.
Honestly, be prepared to have the smoothest legs you've ever had, because this single blade razor gets as close to the skin as possible.
