Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all of the personal grooming tasks that we feel required to keep up with on a daily basis?

I sure do! Sometimes I even make excuses to not do some of it.

For example, I’ll exfoliate my feet with a pumice stone on Saturdays and if I do more than that then there must be time to waste!

It helps to pick a day of the week for each “optional” routine(like teeth or armpit whitening).

Well, if you’re looking for something else to add to your list of body parts that we must keep up with even though no one ever sees them….I have just the thing for you!

When was the last time you evaluated your armpits? Do they seem darker than they used to be? Or, maybe not as vibrant?

Hopefully you haven’t paid any attention to your underarms except when you shave them….everyday! No one thinks about the color of their armpit skin, or do they?

One things for sure, if you wear a lot of black, then you’re armpits will darken over time. Hairdressers can relate….one day you notice that suddenly your underarms do not look the same!

Why is any of this relevant?

Recently I was hanging out with a friend and she said that her armpits were hurting…and burning. I thought, “How odd, what the heck happened? Razor burn, perhaps?”. Much to my surprise, a pumice stone was the culprit!

I’ve never exfoliated my underarms, except with a loofah. That skin is very delicate, and more sensitive….please don’t try it!

She explained that her armpits were starting to look really dark and she didn’t like it. She read online that exfoliating your armpits is essential to lightening the skin. I can’t remember whether or not the article suggested that women use a pumice stone, but either way it’s a good lesson learned! Light exfoliation is okay, but don’t overdo it!
