Your Underarms Matter
When it comes to underarms, the first thing that comes to my mind was :
I dont have underarm hair. Perhaps if I'm lucky I'll have 2 strain of hair on my left, right has none at all. Some might consider I'm lucky, but sometimes I think to myself, is something wrong with me? Haven't I hit puberty at all? -_- But come to think again, I am very lucky indeed. Everytime I hang out with my girls and this subject came up, they will all be jealous of me! They often tell me that it's so irritating and how hard it is to keep it clean, how they shave or wax which results to some painful matters.
For me, besides being lucky of having no hair, I do have a slightly darker tone underarm for no reason. I mean, shouldn't it be the fairest since it's always closed up?
I know most women don't really pay attention to their underarms because of most of them are covered up. A Southeast Asia survery revealed that 91 percent of women believe that their underarm can be seen as a beauty asset. However, 45 percent rank their underarms as one of the three most undesirable body parts. Some think that it kinda look like chicken skin, do you agree?
Most Malaysian women I know shave or pluck their underarm hair but did not realized that the damages caused by these practices can cause irritation which leads to dark and damaged skin. This is when Dove Whitening range comes in handy. As you all know, Dove is no stranger in the beauty world. I have used some of their products and I am a very statisfied customer of theirs. One of my favourite would be their hair conditioner.
Dove recently unveiled it's whitening deodorant range enriched with Dove's unique ¼ moisturising cream to lighten and smoothen underarm skin. It is also clinically tested that the moisturising effects of the Dove Whitening range gives women even-toned and lighter underarm skin that is smooth and soft in 7 days!
I was lucky enough to attend their Dove Deo launch and was given consultation under Professor and Consultant Dermatologist, Dr. Irene Lee. During her presentation, she said that underarm skin is unique and very delicate as it has a weaker barrier function to other bodily skin sites. When women shave, one third of what they remove is skin. As a result, regular shaving leads to further dry and damaged skin. The most important step for damaged underarm skin is to be gentle and provide adequate moisture to allow natural healing.
They also let me print a top with any qoutes that I like and I printed out : 'Confidence is sexy' because confidence is something that it's in you! You feel powerful and knows that everything is under control and you flaunt it and thats the sexiest part!
The event was held at Carcosa Seri Negara where we given a talk about underarm by Dr. Irene, followed by a pampering session of massage and pedicure. Of course I chose Blue colour as it's Dove's signature colour.
Ok, back to underarms! Here are some tips for you, prepared by Dove
So why DOVE DEO WHITENING?
- It whiten the skin with Licorice root extract
- Licorice root extract is a well known skin whitening active ingredient that contains several active compounds known to suppress skin darkening.
- Smoothen skin with Sunflower Seed Oil
- Contains Vitamin E & Vitamin F fatty acid which is essential for healthy, smooth skin.
