Summer is a season of strappy sundresses and swimsuits, but it’s also the season of scorching heat which means sweaty underarms and thus stinky body odour. Summer heat and sweat makes underarms dark and smelly which leaves absolutely no chance of slipping into sleeveless summer dresses. Well, we have a solution for you to get flaunt-worthy underarms even in summers. Follow these three simple summer skincare tips to soft, clean and flawless underarms in no time...
Exfoliate once a week
Sweat and dirt build-up is the main cause of darkening and bad odour in underarms in summer. To get summer buildup off your underarms, exfoliate with a gentle scrub. It will help keep it clean and toxin free. Use a body scrub or DIY a natural scrub with two tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon of lemon juice and rub it on the underarms to lighten the dark spots and get squeaky clean underarms.
Don’t forget to moisturise
Moisturising your underarms after cleaning it properly can make a big difference. It heals dry skin, nourishes and can also reduce darkening. Clean underarms with water or cleansing wipe every once in a while, and apply St. Ives Daily Hydrating Vitamin E & Avocado Body Lotion for soft and hydrated skin on the underarms.
Swear by an anti-perspirant
An antiperspirant loaded with anti-bacterial properties and a sweet smell, of course, is all you need to feel fresh and clean all day.
