Before I start , I just want to say ladies . . . You’re welcome. I had no other pictures of my armpits so this is what you guys got ! This a just a spontaneous post so don’t expect great photos.
If you’re like me, you hate hairy armpits and shave/nair/wax so you don’t see any kind of fuzz emerging from the place where your arms and the rest of your body meet. The constant shaving and application of deodorant can cause the skin where your armpits meet to darken.
First of all , buy aluminum free deodorant and your problems are solved. I use Tom’s natural products. Make sure, if you decide to buy some, it says aluminum free because they do sell ones that contain aluminum.
You’re probably reading this like “That’s it?”, but yes it’s simple. When you make the transition from aluminum to aluminum free deodorant, you’re skin will start to peel. DO NOT PANIC. It is completely normal, it’s basically your skin adjusting to the healthier product. Dead skin will begin to come off.
I would suggest going with the waxing route. Can you believe they sell wax in places like CVS, so you don’t have to go to the salon if you don’t want to? Just be careful. I choose waxing over things like nair and veet because of all the harmful chemicals they use to remove body hair.
I hope this works for you all. I’ve been giving out a lot of skin advice lately.
