Dark underarms can be an embarrassing problem, especially in summer when you want to wear sleeveless clothes to beat the heat. There are many reasons why your underarms may be dark, the common ones being shaving, dead skin cell accumulation, friction etc.
Many people believe that spraying deodorant on the underarm area can cause darkening as well, but we’d like to tell you that it’s not true. Using the right deodorant will not only keep bad odour at bay but also keep your underarms smooth and even-toned. So, if you think your current deodorant is causing the darkening, here’s how to choose the right deodorant to keep your underarms free of dark marks.
Alcohol and paraben-free
Your underarm skin is delicate, and some ingredients like alcohol and parabens can be pretty harsh for this area. Therefore it is essential to look for an underarm deodorant that does not contain these ingredients to keep your underarms fresh, smooth and even-toned.
Apart from no harsh chemicals, a deodorant containing moisturising ingredients will protect your skin from darkening and keep it nourished. The Dove Eventone Deodorant For Women is infused with moisturising cream that prevents underarm darkening and reduces existing dark marks. It does not contain alcohol or paraben, making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Long-lasting odour protection
Most deodorants don’t even offer protection for a few hours from odour, especially during summer. This means you need to spray the deodorant multiple times a day to stay fresh and smell good. Frequent spraying of deodorant can also be harmful to your underarm area. Therefore it is best to opt for a deodorant that gives at least 24-hour odour protection.
