And, I’m doing this tutorial because in my recent tutorials, you guys have been asking me, how do I keep my armpits, from being dark So, the first thing that I wanna do, is to show you my underarm care routine. The steps that I go through daily, on how I keep my underarms sexy. That’s the word, we’re gonna use for this tutorial. The second thing I’m gonna do, is show you guys some tips, and tricks on how to keep your underarms sexy. Okay This is gonna be fun.
I know, that most of you guys like do it yourselves, so, I’m gonna include some do it yourself tips in there, as well. If you have like OCD over the color of your armpits, don’t worry, everyone’s armpits are at least one shade darker than like the rest of their skin. It’s pretty normal, you know, unless your like really, really, really, really lucky, or really, really, really young. Yeah, just because of the area that it’s at, things are always rubbing up against it, hair growing out of it.
It’s going to be a little bit darker. So, don’t worry about that, okay It’s not like people are gonna think that your Big Foot, or freaky, or scary. Calm your nerves, girl, or guy! Guys, question of the day. Do you prefer a girl to shave her armpits, or to not LAUGH Do you like it au naturel You can be honest here. All right. MUSIC Let’s get started. The first step in my underarm care routine. This is very important. I need one of these little buffing pads in my shower at all times.
And, what I do with this is, with soap and water, I just gently, buff away any leftover deodorant, any lint, maybe, from the clothing that I had on. Just any buildup from the day of, I need to get rid off, cuz not only do I think that’s one of the main causes for dark underarms. But I feel like, it’s one of the main causes for odor as well, when you have too much buildup, accumulating under your arms. Then after my armpits are squeaky clean, I grab my razor.
Now, I shave instead of wax because I have thin hair that grows under my arms, and it’s just been working for me for years. I don’t really feel the need to wax. But, I do feel the need to always have a new blade on my razor at all times. I change it probably like once every week and a half, I would say. Once you notice that the razor is pulling, and not cutting your underarm hair, you wanna get rid of that blade immediately because if you’re cutting the pore or.
Damaging your underarms, when it heals, it can come back darker. Also I kinda get these bumps under my arms when I use a dull blade. Just basically my underarm’s asking me politely to get a new razor. Then after that, I make sure that my armpits are completely dried off, no moistness, or wetness before I apply my deodorant. This way, it just adheres better. Also I’m really picky with my deodorant, I feel like a lot of deodorants actually cause dark under arms because of all the chemicals. I’ve been using the same brand for like five years, I’ll link it down below.
And then after that, I model my sexy under arms. Some quick tips if you’re suffering from dark under arms. Waxing, my number one tip, actually. A lot of the reason why, there’s darkness under there, isn’t because it’s dirty. But it’s because there’s a lot of thick stubble, and it’s just showing, and giving the illusion of dark underarms. Waxing, should get rid of that. You can go get it done at the salon, or you can make your own. I made this wax, actually, using some sugar and lemon juice.
I just boiled it in the pot. Not boiled, I’m sorry. I heated up in a pot, and then once it cooled, a little bit, it turned into this really thick wax that people like to call sugaring. I’ll post the recipe down below in the description box. MUSIC Now, another option would be to go for a skin lightening, or depigmenting cream, which you can find over the counter, at a store. Now, this isn’t strong enough to like bleach your skin, and turn you like three shades lighter, or anything like that.
But it can help fight against melamine production, which is what you get after you scar, and it comes back darker, and stuff like that. A lot of people use this actually, under their arms, to help lighten it a little bit because of the discoloration. But if you are afraid of the chemicals, and trust me a lot of people are, there are some natural ways, to actually lighten the discoloration under your arms. Potatoes, nature’s natural bleach. Actually, potato juice has natural bleaching agents in it, less harmful than chemicals.
So, you can just try applying it to your underarms before bed, or whenever you can, daily to you see an improvement. It actually works really well. Another tip, your soap might not be doing a good enough job at removing the buildup. So, you might wanna try something more powerful, that you can actually find in your home, like vinegar, or baking soda. MUSIC After you clean your arms, you can just rub some vinegar on it, or you can actually create a baking soda paste with just some baking soda and water.
Mix it together until it forms this thick, pasty consistency. Rub it on your arm, let it sit for like ten minutes, or so, and then wipe off. And speaking of baking soda, it’s actually a natural deodorizer. So, you can just apply some regular baking soda under your arms instead of deodorant if you don’t want to use deodorant any more. And, and since you’re doing a little extra to get your underarms clean, you’re also gonna notice that, your underarms won’t produce odor as much. Because bacteria is what causes the odor under your arms.
So, getting as clean as possible, will help it be prettier, and less smellier, stinky lady. And lastly, try to refrain from wearing skin tight, dark tops. Because this can cause irritation cuz of all the rubbing underneath your arms. It can also cause darkness from like the lint and stuff to buildup on top of your deodorant. Then you’re not, you know, cleaning it off properly, and then it’s just a big old mess. So, try if you can, to wear looser tops that don’t rub against your armpits, more often.
Just to prevent against this, while you’re trying to heal your underarms, going through underarm treatment, very important. And I think, that is the last of the sexy armpit 101 info, I’m gonna include in this tutorial. But, I’m gonna post all the recipes, that I listed below. And if you have some recipes of your own, post it in the comments below. I hope you found this helpful, I will talk to you guys soon. Okay.
