Sensitive underarms deserve gentle care. Here, we’ll guide you through a new step-by-step routine for minimising irritation and getting the soft, cared for and comfortable underarms you’ve been dreaming of.

    Cleanse your underarms daily

    Not sure where to start? Cleansing is the first step for sensitive skin care. Washing your underarms daily helps remove impurities and excess oils to keep your skin clean and fresh. Make sure you choose a gentle cleanser that’s suitable for all skin types, like Dove Body Wash.

    Make sure you moisturise

    If you ask us, your underarms deserve the same level of care as your face. All of our Advanced Care antiperspirant deodorants contain ¼ moisturising cream with caring oil to give your skin the care it deserves. With a skin caring formula, they nourish your skin, leaving your sensitive underarms soft and comfortable.

    If you choose to shave, change your razor regularly

    What you do with your underarms is totally up to you. But, if you do choose to shave, it’s really important to change your razor regularly. Replacing your razor every week or so will give you a cleaner shave. Plus, it helps to reduce the chance of bacteria building up, keeping your skin smooth with less irritation.

    Wear breathable fabrics

    Did you know that tight clothes around the underarm area can cause friction with movement, increasing the chance of irritation? To give your underarms an extra dose of care, we recommend wearing breathable and roomy fabrics like cotton and linen. Soft, comfortable underarms are just a few steps away with our handy guide.
