Beauty News. Treat Your Underarms To A Luxurious ‘PitCure’!

July 14, 2010 • Beauty


When most women think of revamping their beauty routines, taking special care of their underarms is probably the one of the most neglected areas, although it ranks high as being one of the most sensitive areas for irritation. Whether you've experienced allergic reactions to deodorants, laundry detergents, razor bumps, nicks or scratches, fear not, because there are certain precautions that you can take to ensure "sleeveless-ready underarms." Renowned dermatologist and Dove Deodorant Spokesperson, Dr. Debra Luffman offers her essential "Pitcure" tips to prevent fussy underarm discomfort.

What is the world is a "Pitcure", you ask? Luffman notes in a recent article that a "Pitcure is to your underarms what a pedicure is to your feet"; a simple three step at-home beauty treatment that takes your underarms from "fab to drab."

Luffman offers:

1. Start by using a gentle exfoliating wash to remove all impurities.

2. Rise thoroughly and shave as normal. Pat underarms dry with a towel.

3. Try Dove's Ultimate Deodorant which contains a tri-moisturizing system that soothes shaving any shaving irritation. If you have super sensitive skin, try additional brands that are hypoallergenic and fragrance free.


Did you know that Razors are a breeding ground for bacteria, which is the number one culprit for excessive underarm irritation? Dr. Luffman advises against leaving your razors in the shower before and after shaving. Choosing an alternative storage unit and changing your razor blades every two weeks will avoid any infection from occurring.
