Have you ever felt uncomfortable with the way your armpits look? As it's a hot, humid area prone to rubbing, it is also prone to infections, inflammations, allergies, and even blemishes.

The skin of the armpits is sensitive and delicate. It tends to darken, which is unattractive. Thus, this area being obvious, it is essential to take care of it. The armpits can suffer from the chemicals that we use daily or be damaged by simple neglect.

Armpits are often a taboo subject, especially when it comes to taking care of them. However, this sensitive area deserves our full attention.

It is well known that sweat is an excellent breeding ground for germs and bacteria, which, finding themselves in contact with a humid and warm environment, multiply exponentially. This phenomenon explains why unpleasant odors accompany the armpit after sweating.

Hence the importance of cleaning twice a day. An excellent suggestion for cleaning is to use products with a neutral pH as products tending to acidity are irritating and others tending to alkalinity do not clean well.

If you opt for hair removal for underarms, you should keep a few things in mind. First of all, never share your razors with other people. Even if you've forgotten yours, avoid borrowing your best friend's. It's pretty bad to mix your dead cells and bacteria with someone else - it can pose a risk of infection.

Also, be aware that the razor can irritate the fragile skin of your armpits and create irritation, itching, and small pimples. First, make sure you change your blades regularly and clean the blade between shaves.

To avoid irritation, it is essential to maintain adequate hydration. By retaining a physiological concentration of water, the skin improves its natural barriers against the pathogenic microorganisms responsible for foul underarm odor.

Also, the hydration of the armpits allows the skin to regenerate naturally, even after hair removal, in order to avoid irritation and redness.

Use Deodorant

It is always advisable to use non-aggressive deodorant or antiperspirant products that keep skin moisture under control, allowing a physiological water-saline exchange. The best deodorants must be able to leave transpiration free but simultaneously eliminate unpleasant odors, respecting the characteristics of the skin.

Therefore it is necessary to opt for products with a pH similar to that of the skin, free of aluminum and parabens. It should also have a pleasant but not an excessive fragrance and, above all, delicate on the skin.
