In our daily life it is quite common to pay attention to the parts of our body that we and others see the most and neglect the ones that are less visible. Such case is the armpit area which although is not as “visible” as other parts of our body, is an area that needs special care and treatment.
It is very likely that taking care of that area for many, involves a quick wash in the shower followed by a deodorant. But is this enough? The short answer is no and we’ll explain exactly why.
To begin with, the armpit area is a place where we tend to sweat more, something that favors the growth of bacteria and fungi. As this particular area is very sensitive, it is also more prone to irritations, redness and of course odors.
This area on our body requires a special treatment. A treatment that is simple and will ensure a healthier, clean and hydrated skin with a better smell even when we sweat.
Before we share the 3 simple steps we recommend for the proper care of the area, we need to mention something very important regarding the care of the armpit. The deodorant products that we use and even if they seem like an “innocent” product they can be particularly harmful not only to the armpit area but also to our organism as various studies have proven.
The important thing to pay attention to when choosing such a product is the ingredients it contains. The best solution is of course to buy a natural deodorant that will not transfer harmful chemicals to our skin and body or close our skin pores. However, if you choose a common deodorant from the market, best to avoid some harmful ingredients such as aluminum, salts, parabens and talc.
This fact makes the proper care of the area even more important, as proper cleaning will help us remove as much as possible the remains of these components and take care of the overall health of the area.
#1 Start by cleansing the area with Τhe Pure Cleansing Oil, a cleansing oil that draws out dirt and is enriched with natural antioxidants such as grapeseed oil, minerals and vitamins, all of which are nourishing for the skin. It will leave a soft feeling to the area so you can continue with the next step, the second cleansing.
#2 Follow up with a gentle gel like The Exfoliating Body Gel Wash which is ideal for daily use. This particular product will help you remove dead skin cells by opening the pores that may have become clogged with impurities and synthetic products that you may use in your daily life. Its natural antiseptic, antibacterial and cleansing capacities resulting from the oils of cinnamon, coriander, rosemary and other nutrients it contains.
#3 The CP Facial Spray, a blend of tea tree and lavender, has natural antiseptic properties that inhibit bacterial growth and promote overall skin health. At the same time, it soothes the skin and any irritations helping it to calm down and recover. Apply it to the area after cleansing it first, to tone it and “seal” its protection.
Although we may have never thought about it, our armpit area also needs its own care, which is neither difficult nor time consuming and is necessary for the area’s health but also of our entire body. Such a routine will turn out to be effective both in terms of appearance and health, as well as in terms of smell especially if you follow a hair removal method since the area is likely to be irritated.
