There are many reasons for our dark underarms – among those are dead skin cells, deodorants, antiperspirants, shaving, sweating and friction with clothes. It is actually a common problem that many women face, even the fair-skinned ones. Dark underarms make us self-conscious of their appearance when wearing sleeveless tops and even raising our arms.
There are several whitening products for treating darkened underarms. As more these whitening products hit the market, with promises of all sorts of whitening powers, it’s easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest. But there’s also one product that’s been missing in the underarm whitening regimen: the underarm toner or what we call “toner-deo”.
Remember, a proper underarm care is similar to facial care where we follow the CMT routine: Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize — a step by step routine to benefit our skin.
First, what is “toner-deo”?
It is a specialized underarm toner with deodorizer and anti-perspirant properties applied to the skin to complete the cleansing— to remove the dust, pollution, and impurities that can still be lingering after washing. It also helps to reduce oiliness and improve the skin condition. You can try Beaublends Advance White Deo and Antiperspirant which also acted as toner-deo. It contains Kojic and Licorice Extract and other natural cosmeceutical ingredients help brighten & whiten skin, remove dead skin cells and make skin becomes naturally soft, smooth and lighter. It also helps to prevent unwanted body odors with its fresh deodorizing. Kojic Dipalmitate reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the production of free tyrosinase, fades areas of unwanted pigmentation by disrupting the production and distribution of melanin in the skin by targeting overactive melanocytes (pigment-producing cells), while Licorice Extract induces skin lightening by dispersing melanin.
Here are the steps to keep your underarm fresher, cleaner and whiter.
Wash your armpits with lukewarm water, soap or body wash. Try Beaublends Rosy Gluta with Rosehip Soap to help brighten and even out skin tone, reduce dark spots, freckles, and pimple marks, and rejuvenate your skin at the same time. It contains Glutathione, powerful antioxidant, and Rosehip Oil that quench dry, sun damaged skin and help to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. After washing or taking a bath, dab your body and armpits with a towel. Do not rub because it will stretch your skin and lead to wrinkles.
Apply a small amount of toner-deo to a soft cotton ball or pad. Make sure you get enough on the cotton pad so that it feels damp but not too wet. Gently wipe your underarm to remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores. If you notice a dark particles from the cotton pads after wiping your armpits – don’t fret! The toner-deo removes the dirt or deo-particles, which were accumulated over months. By applying the underarm solution with the use of cotton every day, it prevents build up of dead skin, oils, sweat and cream. This also allows underarm to be more refreshed and cleansed, resulting to better absorption of the active whitening ingredients, achieving faster whitening effect, and better application for a more refine pores, thinner shaft for hair & retarded growth.
Some skip this part especially if their toner-deo contains anti-perspirant. However, for those who are using underarm whitening cream or moisturizer, it is best to apply after using the toner. It prepares your skin for better absorption of underarm whitening and moisturizing product.
If you are using Beaublends Advance White Deo and Antiperspirant toner, use it in the morning after bathing. Then use the Beaublends Advance White Underarm Whitening Cream at night following the Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize routine. This underarm whitening cream contains whitening formulation from Tyrostat to safely reduce skin pigmentation and erythema for a more uniformed and lighter skin complexion. It also contains intensely moisturizing natural extracts to leave skin refreshed and rejuvenated.
