What are strawberry legs?

Strawberry skin legs is a term used to describe the dotted appearance of visible pores or hair follicles on the legs. This is usually caused by pores being clogged with dirt, dead skin cells or bacteria.
They’re called “strawberry legs” because they resemble the speckling of strawberry seeds.

Does having strawberry legs cause ingrown hairs?

If you have a consistent strawberry skin appearance on your legs, this can make you more susceptible to ingrown hairs after shaving. This is because the hair follicles can become obstructed by dirt and bacteria or trapped by inflammation.

Some minor changes to your shaving routine, e.g., using a dry brush to exfoliate before shaving and using a clean, sharp razor, can help prevent ingrown hairs.
If you want a more permanent solution to get rid of ingrown hairs and strawberry legs, you may benefit from laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal can be a great solution to get rid of ingrown hairs and strawberry legs because it eliminates hair follicles and impedes future hair growth.
Laser hair removal can treat strawberry legs resulting from razor burns, bacteria build-up and visible dark follicles, leaving you with clear, smooth looking legs. Ingrown hairs will also be eliminated as the hair is destroyed.
