1. Checking Your Antiperspirant
If you’ve been noticing that your underarms have turned red, bumpy, and inflamed, then we would advise you to have a look at the ingredients section of your antiperspirant. An antiperspirant does exactly what you think it will; wherever it is applied, it blocks the sweat from coming out there. Most of the antiperspirants contain aluminum salt in them, which blocks the pores of your underarms.
2. Moisturize Your Underarms
You need to understand this simple fact peeps — just like other parts of our body, even our underarms have epidermis, which will thank you if you moisturize it. Moisturizing skin prevents it from withering and this rule applies to your underarms as well.
Human skin generally takes around four weeks to renew itself and as we age our skin takes even more time to renew. But, you can speed up the cell renewal process if you regularly exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation is known to remove the dead skin cells and help restore the health of the skin. Exfoliating your underarms will help you make them smooth. But make sure you use a mild exfoliator; you don’t want to end up with rashes. Use your hands or a soft cloth to exfoliate.
4. Opt For Skin-Lightening Treatment To Battle The Dark Areas
Were you all aware that wearing tight clothes, putting antiperspirant regularly, and plucking hair can cause the skin around underarms to darken? Well, it’s true. However, problems like hyperpigmentation (a condition where there is a sudden rise in the melanin production) can also be blamed for the darkened skin of the underarms.
5. Consider The Alternatives To Shaving
There are many other hair removal methods that we can make use of. Shaving causes burns, redness, and inflammation, and when you’re aware of the cons why not look for an alternative? The clean, aftershave look can last for just a couple of days. Whereas, if you wax your underarms, you can have hair-free armpits for at least a month. Some might experience redness or slight swelling after waxing.
