The 5 Commandments of Flawless Underarms

Flaunt it, Girl!

    Thou shall use a proper hair removal method.

    Is it shaving, plucking, waxing, or lasering? When it comes to underarm hair removal, the final answer depends on many factors. Shaving is easier, but you need to pick the right type of razor and follow specific skincare tips to keep your underarms stubble-free. Waxing and hair laser removal are more expensive and also come with a list of care tips. In the end, it all boils down to what works well with your underarm skin condition, level of commitment, and skincare regimen.

    Thou shall take a bath regularly.

    Insufficient bathing and poor hygiene lead to an unpleasant body odor, which is secreted from hidden body parts—those that don’t get much sunlight—such as your genitals, scalp, areas between your toes, and underarms. Practice good hygiene by bathing regularly using anti-bacterial soaps, and make sure you don’t neglect those “hidden” body parts.

    Thou shall keep perspiration at bay.

    Sweating is a natural process that controls the body’s internal temperature, but excessive perspiration contributes to BO, and not to mention, a low self-esteem. There are many ways to handle sweat, such as using antiperspirants and moisture-wicking fabrics when dressing for the gym, but when your perspiration level is out of control, it’s time to consult a doctor. Excessive sweating can be triggered by emotional distress and underlying medical conditions.

    Thou shall pamper your armpits.

    Give your underarms a weekly pampering treatment the same way you get a facial and spa service regularly. Exfoliate your underarms at least once a week with a natural scrub (No microbeads, please!) or body brush while taking a shower.
