Pit Stop: Preventing Odor

It’s starting to get really hot and now is the time to address your pits.

 

As the weather gets hotter, clothes come off. With the increased level of heat, your body starts to get sweaty. One place that can make or break your level of hygiene is your underarms. Yes, believe it or not, some people just do not take care of their pits, which causes people to look at them with a strong side eye. Do not be one of those people. Below is a simple guide to help you and your pits stay nice and fresh.

 

SHOWER/TAKE A BATH!

Just in case you forgot, shower and wash your armpits vigorously.

TRIM/REMOVE HAIR

Hair has the tendency to trap odor. The less the better. Plus, less hair there is just more aesthetically pleasing. Granted, if you wish to have your pits be a no shave zone, that is a personal choice. If you like your hair, but do not wish to have a ‘fro, trim the hairs. Once the area is shaved to your liking, don’t forget to exfoliate to keep an even skin tone.

Traditional

The stick form of deodorant is convenient, easy to use and locate. Simply go to your favorite store, sniff to see what matches your mood and purchase.

 

Spray

If you don’t feel like always rolling up your deodorant or fear white marks on your clothing, a dry spray will be a great alternative. You just simply lift your arms, aim for the pits and spray for a few seconds. Believe it or not, it offers the same level of protection and dryness as the traditional method. It’s worth a try.
