Unlike fruit, strawberry legs aren’t what you want to have when you’re sitting in the hot summer sun.
But TikTok lifestyle guru Kim Lloyd thinks she’s discovered the best hack to make some of those unwanted bumps go away.
Have you ever had red bumps after shaving that are visible up and down your legs?
According Cleveland Clinicthese are known as “strawberry skin legs” and “occur when your hair follicles or pores become clogged with dirt, dead skin, bacteria, or oil.”
One of the most common times for individuals to get these clogged hair follicles is after shaving, as reported. Medical News Today.
If you haven’t shaved properly, you’ve probably noticed bumps on your leg.
Kim Lloyd is a beauty expert known for sharing makeup reviews and skincare tips.
Strawberry legs are no stranger to her, as well as the struggle to get a close shave.
But she’s confident her trick will leave you smooth and soft.
Kim posted a video explaining her shaving routine that helps get rid of strawberry bumps.
First, the razor.
There is no need to go out and buy the most expensive on the market; a generic will work just fine.
However, if you use the same razor for your legs as for your private parts, you are doing something wrong.
Kim says every razor should be replaced often, after the fifth time you shave.
In agreement with The manual reports, you should change your razor blades after five to seven shaves.

Once your razors are sorted and fresh, the next step is exfoliation.
The trick is that before you start shaving, you need to mix one part shaving cream with one part baby oil.
Apply it to your skin, then run the razor over the top.
Kim prefers to mix the EOS Shea Better 24 Hour Moisturizing Shave Cream for $5.99 at Ulta and the Johnson’s Baby Oil, mineral oil enriched with shea and cocoa butter for $5.37 on Amazon.
“Lather this on your legs and I swear it will be the best shave ever and you won’t have so many strawberry bumps,” she says.
Her viewers shared their experience with bump removal and what worked best for them.
One person wrote, “I had so many strawberry bumps and now they are 95% gone. My dermatologist switched me to edge sensitive shaving gel, Gillette Skin Guard razors and always use a clean washcloth to exfoliate before and then wash off. No loofah, no razors with more than 2 blades and no heavy oils/scented shaving gels (like women).”
“Baby shampoo! Sounds weird but the one in the yellow bottle. Put it on after you shave like a body wash, it works wonders I swear,” said another.
