Have you experienced the frustration of relentlessly scrubbing your underarms only to find you still have a nasty white residue lingering? Even if you think your underarms are clean, you may find a white film that develops on your razor. This white substance is caused from your deodorant or antiperspirant and is difficult to remove. Fortunately, here are two tips for getting your underarms clean and looking great:
1. Use an Underarm Cleanser
You may not be aware that there are special underarm cleansers that effectively remove deodorant buildup. Body wash and soap are not sufficient at completely removing the residue leftover by deodorants and antiperspirants. Here are three benefits of using an underarm cleanser:
Affordable price – You may be thinking an underarm cleanser costs more than soap or body wash. Fortunately, you can purchase a bottle of underarm cleanser for a price comparable to regular soaps.
Improved Clean –Underarms cleansers work to completely clean your skin, leaving you feeling renewed and clean.
Simple process – Washing your underarms with cleanser is just as easy as using regular soap. You can clean your underarms in three easy steps: 1) Wet your underarms in the shower or using a wet rag, 2) Apply a dime-size amount of cleanser and gently rub into the skin, and 3) Rinse the area clean with water.
2. Apply a Natural Bleaching Agent
If you suffer from dark underarms, you may be hesitant to wear sleeveless tops or swimsuits. There are a number of factors that contribute to dark underarms, including shaving, an accumulation of dead cells, excessive use of deodorants and antiperspirants, and hereditary influences.
Fortunately, there are a couple of natural bleaching agents you can apply to lighten the skin under your arms. One method is to apply lemon juice before taking a shower every day. Lemon juice acts as a bleaching agent and will gradually lighten the area. Another natural bleaching method is to rub cucumber juice (from a grated cucumber) into the area for fifteen minutes or so.
By using an underarm cleanser and natural bleaching agent to lighten your underarms, you will feel fresh and clean every day. You will also have the confidence to wear any type of clothing, whenever you want.
