Let’s face it – our armpits rarely get the love and attention they deserve. However, these small parts of our bodies play a significant role in our daily lives. From sweaty workouts to active participation in emotional moments, our armpits have seen it all. It’s time we return the favor and show them some well-deserved appreciation! How to take care of the armpits? Read on!
Exfoliate Your Way to Underarm Heaven
Like any other part of your body, your armpits crave some deep cleansing love too! Dead skin cells and residue from deodorants and antiperspirants can accumulate, leading to dull, rough underarms. A gentle exfoliation ritual can work wonders, revealing smoother and more radiant underarms. One of the latest wellness trends involves armpit detox – which isn’t so much an actual detox, but a deep cleansing treatment. It effectively clears the pores and eliminates the sticky residue of antiperspirant or deodorant from your armpits. Try LUNA™ 4 body, FOREO’s revolutionary body device that uses iconic T-Sonic™ massage to deep cleanse and gently exfoliate dead skin cells, while promoting blood flow. It’s ultra-hygienic, bacteria-resistant and clinically proven to remove impurities trapped within pores.
Nourish and Moisturize
Keeping your underarms nourished is the key to maintaining their health and beauty. Opt for natural and gentle products that won’t disrupt the delicate balance of your skin. Moisturizing regularly will leave your underarms feeling soft and hydrated, and it’s an excellent practice after exfoliation. Use a light moisturizer – a lotion is a good option because it’s usually lighter than creams. If your skin feels irritated, look for a formula with oatmeal, which helps skin to feel soothed. Aloe vera, coconut butter and olive oil are also ingredients that will keep your skin soft, smooth and nourished. Avoid products with acids as these may be too harsh for the delicate underarm skin.

For many, dark underarms can be a cause of concern and self-consciousness. To win this battle against dark underarms, try ditching those harmful chemical-laden deodorants and antiperspirants and embrace natural alternatives. Regular exfoliation and keeping the area moisturized can also help lighten the tone of your underarms.
Pro Tip: Lemon juice and honey are an excellent combo to naturally lighten dark underarms. Their antioxidant-rich properties will fight the dark side and leave you with brighter underarms.

Choose Breathable Fabrics
Wearing tight or synthetic fabrics can suffocate your underarms, leading to unpleasant odors and irritation. Choose breathable fabrics like cotton to allow your skin to breathe freely. It’s time to let your underarms dance with joy and liberation!
The Golden Rule: Hygiene, Always
Last but certainly not least, maintaining proper hygiene is the golden rule for caring for your underarms. Regular cleansing and proper drying after showers will keep unwanted bacteria and odors away.
