How to prevent strawberry legs

Exfoliate regularly

First step you can take is exfoliate to ensure that you’re unclogging your pores from extra dirt and sebum, and getting rid of any dead skin cells. Both chemical exfoliator, such as products with ingredients like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and other alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids (AHAs and BHAs); and physical exfoliator such as body scrubs, luffa and exfoliating gloves would work well to loosen the top layer of the skin and decrease the debris.

Moisturize

Dryness in skin could make the condition more noticeable and make skin irritated more easily, causing an increase in appearance of the follicles. Use a body lotion or cream to hydrate your skin to restore lipids and water density in the hair follicles and surrounding skin.
