Dove How to turn your underarm care into a ritual you’ll love

How to turn your underarm care into a ritual you’ll love

When we think of self-care rituals, face masks and a candle or two might spring to mind, before we even consider our underarm care. We know that they might not feature in our ‘Self-care Sundays’, but if you ask us, our underarms deserve a dose of care too. 

That’s why we’re here to help you pamper yourself and turn your underarm care routine into a self-care ritual you’ll love every day of the week. Ready? Let’s go. 

  • 1

    Gently cleanse

    First things first. Choose a gentle body wash to cleanse and care for skin. Your underarm area is delicate, so we’d recommend one with a formula you can trust to be kind. To amp up the self-care, try Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash – you can’t beat a classic.

    Shave (or not)

    To shave or not to shave – that is the question. And the answer is: do whatever you feel comfortable with. If you so choose to make hair removal a part of our underarm skin care, make sure you replace your razor blade regularly and create a caring post-shave routine.

    Exfoliate 

    Speaking of your post-shave routine (or any kind of underarm care routine)… this next step is one of our favorite self-care rituals. Exfoliating isn’t just for our faces, arms and legs. So, if you’re wondering how to get smooth underarms, your underarms can benefit from a gentle buff now and again, too.
