How to give your underarms the best care

Most people have an extensive skincare routine for their face and body, but we tend to forget that our underarms need extra TLC too. Here are tips to reduce sweat, minimisebody odour  and have smooth, fresh underarms with fewer dark marks so you can feel confident when it’s time to show them off.

Use an antiperspirant deodorant

Antiperspirants are effective because they work with our bodies to prevent sweat from reaching the surface of our skin. We advise you use an antiperspirant deodorant because it not only stops sweat but also contains a fragrance so that your underarms can stay dry and smell fresh. Before applying your antiperspirant, make sure your underarms are clean and dry. Apply it in the morning and at night for the best results.

Shave regularly

Hair traps moisture, so it comes as no surprise that it can contribute to sweaty underarms. Shave your underarms regularly to prevent any accumulation of body odour. 

Exfoliate

Yes, your underarms need exfoliation too, especially if you shave. Exfoliation scrubs away dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, and this gets rid of bacteria while leaving your underarms soft. To exfoliate, use a loofah to apply a body scrub to your underarms and scrub gently. If you have sensitive skin you can use your facial cleanser to exfoliate your underarms. Do this twice a week for smoother underarms. 

Use an even tone antiperspirant

Regularly shaving your underarms can be harsh on your skin and lead to excessive production of pigment - which results in dark marks. To reduce these dark underarm marks, try using New Shield Even Tone antiperspirant , every day and you will notice the difference in just 7 days. It improves the look and feel of your underarm skin and is available for men and women. 

Shield Even Tone is the first deodorant to use the unique technology of vitamin b3 complex to prevent excess pigment from being produced and care for your underarms while still providing you with 48hr protection from sweat and odour. Use new to get rid of dark marks, get even tone skin and stop sweating
