So it should come as no surprise that I am willing to talk about sweaty, stinky armpits. We all have them. They can all get funkified and gross. And we all use deodorant. At least I hope we all do...Not doing so would be rather unpleasant. So deodorant is basically a part of life that is unavoidable.
For women, it's a bit more than just slapping on some deodorant and going. We also need to shave so we don't end up looking like Neanderthals. Shaving alone can be quite irritating to the delicate skin on our underarms. Add to that the nasty chemicals found in lots of deodorants, and redness, irritation, and discoloration can occur. This is not only extremely uncomfortable, it is also embarrassing. Who wants to go out wearing a sleeveless top or dress when their pits look like they've been victims of a Napalm attack?
Did you know that 32 million women in the U.S. experience underarm red and dark marks that result from shaving irritation? That's a crazy statistic, right?! In fact, underarm shaving can sap 50% of the moisture from the skin. No wonder dryness and irritation occur!
I have been using Dove Clear Tone for a while now, and I have definitely noticed less irritation and discoloration. The dark spots and redness that normally occurred after shaving have been markedly reduced. My skin also isn't anywhere near as dry or itchy, which is nice. I would definitely recommend giving Dove Clear Tone a shot. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. And you'll smell amazing. That's always a plus, too!
