So why does underarm skin tend to end up red, itchy, and irritated? Well, there are a couple of reasons. First, shaving can cause major problems with the thin skin. Think about it...Dragging a sharp razor blade against the delicate skin can cause redness and even tiny cuts. Ouch! In fact, studies show that when you shave, 36% of what the razor picks up is actually your skin. (Yikes!)
Second, a lot of deodorants contain harsh chemicals and other ingredients that can cause further irritation and even dry the skin out. This isn't only uncomfortable, it's also pretty unattractive. So it's no wonder women feel a bit of embarrassment when it comes to the state of their armpits during warmer months.
Thankfully, the folks at Dove have a wonderful, soothing solution that will get those underarms in the perfect shape for summer. Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™ offers a whopping 48 hours of protection against moisture and odor, plus NutriumMoisture™, a special blend of moisturizing ingredients, which keeps the skin hydrated and soft. It also comes in a wide variety of fragrances, so you're sure to find something that reflects your own personal style.
I have been using this product, and I have to say, I am quite impressed. Not only does my skin feel more supple and soft, I have also noticed that there is less redness and irritation. Another thing I love is the 48 hours of protection. This product lasts and lasts, while remaining gentle to the skin. Also, this deodorant doesn't cause any white, cakey messes, so you can raise your arms in total confidence.
How can you get your underarms summer-ready? Give yourself an at-home Piticure with Dove! It's easy, and the results are amazing. By following these simple steps, your underarms will be smoother, softer, and more even toned. And with Dove's odor and wetness protection, you won't have to worry about gross sweat stains on your clothing.
Step One: Exfoliate

Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
