Giving your underarm skin a royal snub is the biggest skin sin you’re probably committing. If you don’t want your underarms to smell, feel bumpy or sweat and stain your clothes, then it’s time you give them the same level of care and attention you give the skin on your face.
Unfortunately, our underarms have limited access to fresh air, and that’s exactly why they’re prone to be warm, sweaty and moist most of the time, thereby giving rise to inflammation, irritation and unwanted odour. It is, therefore, ideal to adopt a gentle underarm care routine in order to keep infection and discomfort at bay. And, if you’re too lazy to follow a separate skincare regimen for your underarms, then here’s a DIY detox spray that is sure to sort your life out.
This 3-ingredient spray is not just easy to prepare but also has more benefits than you’d imagine. It acts as a natural deodorant, helps you get rid of dark underarms, reduces sweat and softens bumpy or rough skin. Makes for a win-win product, doesn’t it?
Mix together one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and four drops of pure lavender essential oil in a cup.
Add half a cup of rose water to the above mixture.
Fill the mixture into a spray bottle and store it in a cool place.
Shake the bottle well and spray a small amount on dry underarms and air it until it evaporates. Spritz before heading out and use it daily to reap its benefits.
