We're always conscious about flaunting our underarms. But did you know that your pits are actually more needy in terms of TLC compared to your face? One wrong move and it can turn dark and prickly! To save you from the horrors of ugly underarms, we share tips on how to keep it baby smooth.
Shaving every now and then is the root cause of darkening. Plucking, on the other hand, provokes the surface to produce chicken skin or risk ingrown hairs. We recommend that you have your follicles waxed, or that you invest in laser treatments to avoid all the hassle for an extended period.

No one ever wants to be the girl with B.O. that everyone talks about. Keep yourself smelling fresh all day with a deodorant that fights odor-causing bacteria and by slipping on clothes that are freshly laundered.

Besides shaving, another cause for skin hyperpigmentation in the pits may be the products you put on your underarms. Be keen on the soap and deodorant you use—they might be too harsh and may cause irritation. Use a brightening deo that restores the moisture balance of the skin in your underams.
