We’d be lying if we said we weren’t conscious about the way our underarms look every time we don something sleeveless. And although it would be easier to blame the pigmentation in your underarms on other factors, the most common reason for it is that we don’t pay enough attention to that particular area. In fact, you may be making certain mistakes which is why your underarms look the way they do. So, if you want to don sleeveless attires without feeling the slightest bit conscious, here are some underarm mistakes you need to stop making immediately.
Shaving your underarms – Since shaving is practically painless and the most cost-effective method of hair removal, most of us tend to shave our underarms instead of waxing them. But this is a huge mistake because the skin on your underarms is extremely delicate and sensitive. It gets damaged when you shave it and thus this results in skin issues like dryness or pigmentation.
Not having an underarm routine – Yes, you need to have an underarm routine too because your underarm problems won’t just disappear in one day. Make sure to opt for a proper skincare routine for your underarms like cleansing, toning and moisturising on a daily basis and you’ll see just how much of a difference it can make to your skin.
Not exfoliating – Just like the rest of your skin, the skin on your underarms needs to be exfoliated too. In fact, your underarms are more prone to sweat and grime build-up than the rest of your body so they absolutely need to be taken care of in the right way. Make sure to use your body scrub on your underarm areas at least twice a week. Not only will it get rid of build-up but it will also help unclog your pores and keep your skin clean and clear.
So, now that you know just what you need to do and what you need to avoid in order to take care of your underarms properly, we suggest you get right to it! Keep these tips in mind and stay tuned for more updates.
