Dove deodorant is an official sponsor of Spa Week, and dermatologist Dr. Debra Luftman has offered some tips for caring for our underarms.
Tip: Don't leave your razor in the shower! It's a breeding ground for bacteria.
Tip: Wait until the end of your shower to shave. This steam from the shower opens up your pores and helps you get a closer shave.
Tip: When we shave, we lose about 20% of the top layer of our underarm skin. A moisturizing deodorant like Dove helps replace some of that moisture.
But don't take it from me, let's hear it from the good Doctor herself. Here's Dr. Luftman's advice on doing a "piticure" (like a manicure for your pits) at home.
