One of the most common (and embarrassing!) problems we face is darkened underarms, and the number one culprit is shaving or plucking. While it’s the easiest way to get rid of the hairs, it can cause inflammation, trauma and friction to the skin. It also damages the layers underneath and reacts by producing extra pigment deep within, making it harder to lighten.
Dry and flaky skin
Even with the humidity, you can still have dry and flaky underarms and it’s really uncomfortable as it can become itchy and inflamed. If you’re struggling with the problem, then you might be having an allergic reaction to your current deodorant. Shaving or waxing can also lead to dryness as it’s a form of exfoliation and needs lots of TLC right after to restore the moisture.
Sweat is naturally odourless until it comes in contact with bacteria. Poor hygiene and using the wrong products can produce bacteria that breaks down the odourless sweat, making it smell. Consuming certain food and drinks or even medication can also give off an unpleasant odour.
