How To Care For Your Underarms

How To Care For Your Underarms

We’ll be the first to admit it: tending to the needs of your underarms is not nearly as glamorous as a skincare routine full of serums and masks. Yet this delicate area is no less important. From sweating and odour to irritation and ingrown hairs, the armpits have a host of their own unique concerns that can be easily addressed through a simple routine. Read below for our tips on how to take care of your armpits.


The underarms don’t get a lot of airflow so can become warm and moist. This kind of humid environment is prone to bacteria and fungus, which is what causes body odour when it merges with sweat. Balance the microbiome of this precarious area by using a PH-BALANCED BODY CLEANSER daily. Avoid anything with high-foaming agents as these can strip the skin of its natural oils and be too drying. Pharmacy brands like La Roche-Posay, CeraVe and Cetaphil have some great options.


We know about the importance of exfoliating our faces, but our underarms deserve a little attention too. Exfoliating the body HAS MANY BENEFITS, and when it comes to the armpits it helps to reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs and razor bumps by deeply clearing out the pores. It also evens out the texture of your underarms and improves the absorption of your deodorant. Our BODY POLISH has been formulated with a considered blend of both physical and chemical exfoliators to gently buff away dead skin cells.


We’ve all made the mistake of shaving our underarms in a hurry, ending up with inflamed and irritated armpits (ouch). It’s a sensitive area so it requires a slightly slower pace. Lather up with our SHAVE CREAM, which has been created with plant-based ingredients to provide slip, glide and hydration. Ergonomically designed for the way women shave, use our signature RAZOR to mindfully remove armpit hair, ensuring you are regularly changing your REFILL BLADE to achieve a smooth, clean and hygienic underarm shave every time.


When you’re moisturising your body, don’t neglect your armpits. Applying moisturiser to your underarms keeps this area hydrated and healthy. It also helps to soothe and calm after shaving. Seeing as there are a lot of hair follicles in this area, opt for a moisturiser that is pH-balanced and not too heavy. Made in Australia, our BODY MOISTURISER contains skincare ingredients like squalane, niacinamide and antioxidant-rich extracts to elevate moisture levels and support the skin’s barrier function. 


Over the last few years, the beauty market has become flooded with more deodorant options than ever. Whether you want to go down the traditional or clean path, find a deodorant that works for you. It’s important to keep in mind that not all deodorants are created equal: deodorant protects against odour, while antiperspirant protects against both sweat and odour. Aluminium is the active ingredient in antiperspirant products, so note that a lot of clean options don’t control sweat, they just keep odour at bay.
