The skin around the armpit area is super sensitive, and thus, undertaking underarm care routines can be a daunting task. People tend to focus on the negative aspects such as smell, bumps, and sweat stains when they think about the armpits. Our armpits deserve more tender, love, and care. They have little exposure to fresh air and are susceptible to be warm and moist, which are the ideal conditions for irritation, smelly bacteria, and inflammation. Therefore, by incorporating a gentle and health-giving underarm care routine, we can lessen the chances of infections and discomforts. Below we have highlighted different ways to improve your underarm care routine.
Cleanse Daily and Exfoliate Once a Week
Softly wash your armpits with some gentle soap to inhibit the growth of smelly bacteria. Also, exfoliate once a week to promote the generation of new cells and unclog the pores. An example of a gentle exfoliate is the Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish.
Tone and Moisturize
After cleansing your armpits, thoroughly dry them. Afterward, apply a toner to sweep away residual debris, and contract the pores in the underarm region to reduce sweating. Insta Natural Organic Rose Water Toner is a pure and natural rose water that soothes irritations and naturally balances the skin’s pH.
Hair Removal Using a Clean Sharp Razor
Always when you are shaving your armpits, you have to ensure that the razor you are using is sharp and clean. Shaving results into tiny micro-tears in that delicate skin region of the underarms. So never use a razor more than five times and always store it in a dry region after using it.
Use a Natural Deodorant
Natural deodorants such as Mugzies Naturals are awesome for the armpits. They are neutral to your underarms, are full of aromatic, have beneficial ingredients that will improve the look and feel of your skin, and are better for the environment.
Wear Breathable Fabrics
Natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, bamboo, and hemp allow moisture to evaporate. These fabrics keep odor-causing moisture away from your skin.
