Its summer-time and it is also that time of the year when you know that you might just die with the scorching heat outside. And the only way to survive that burn is by wearing more loose cotton t-shirts, sleeveless tank tops and easy-breezy dresses.


And, while we are switching our wardrobe options from full sleeves to cut sleeves there is one thing that always strikes our mind first. We know you have got it! Yes, it is our underarms... and the fact that if our underarms are prepared to sneak out in the daylight or not?

Our underarms are perhaps the most ignored and least cared part of our body but with summer knocking on our door already, it's now time that we pay some attention to them and stopped making the following three mistakes!

Don't forget to moisturise

A light formula moisturiser application is required to keep your underarms skin healthy and to minimise irritation. It is suggested to use some virgin coconut oil or a coconut-based moisturiser that doesn't feel heavy and has antibacterial properties to soothe the dry and irritated skin. This step will also ensure that you stay fresh and smell good all day long.



Stop using deodorants with alcohol content in them

If you are not aware of this skin fact then let us tell you that your underarm skin is different from the skin on the rest of your body. One of the things that you need to take care of in summers is what you are applying to it while maintaining its cleanliness. Using products with high alcohol content in them will darken your armpit area and may also result in a burning sensation. It is highly recommended that you opt for an alcohol-free deodorant that is dermatologist tested.  This will protect you from bad odour, bacteria and keep your underarms fresh the entire day.


Never shave your underarms!

Well, we know shaving sounds quick and easy and it also helps you get rid of the hair on the surface of your skin. But do you know, shaving can end up removing up to 30-35% of the top layer of the skin which means that the top protective layer of your skin is getting removed which makes your underarms dry and sensitive to any skincare products you use on that area. It is highly suggested that you should stop shaving your armpits and rather opt for methods that pluck out hair from the roots like waxing.


Don't forget to shower some tender love care to your underarms too!
