Your step-by-step routine for sensitive underarms

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

    Cleanse your underarms daily

    Not sure where to start? Cleansing is our first underarm skin care step. Washing the day away removes 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 Sensitive Skin Body Wash.

    Make sure you moisturize

    The skin under your arms is very delicate and is often forgotten about. If you ask us, it deserves the same level of care you give your face. All of our antiperspirants contain ¼ moisturizing cream to give you underarm care that goes further. With a non-irritant formula, they nourish your skin, leaving your 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 and help reduce the chance of bacteria building up, keeping your skin smooth and free from irritation.

    Wear breathable fabrics

    Did you know that certain fabrics can dry out the skin under your arms, increasing the chance of irritation? To give your underarms an extra dose of care, try wearing breathable fabrics like cotton and linen.
