Should I exfoliate my armpits?
Exfoliation is an essential step in any skincare routine. While many of us exfoliate our face and body regularly, we often overlook a crucial area: our armpits. But why should you exfoliate your armpits, and what are the benefits?
Removes dead skin cells: Just like any other part of the body, the skin in your armpits sheds dead skin cells. Over time, these cells can build up and contribute to a dull, rough texture. Exfoliating your armpits helps to remove these dead skin cells, leaving the skin smoother and brighter.
Reduces ingrown hairs: Ingrown hairs can be a common problem in the armpit area, especially for those who shave regularly. Exfoliating your armpits can help to prevent ingrown hairs by removing dead skin cells and unclogging your hair follicles.
Prevents body odor: The armpit area is prone to sweating, which can contribute to body odor. Exfoliating your armpits helps to remove bacteria and sweat buildup, reducing the risk of unpleasant odor.
Enhances deodorant absorption: Exfoliating your armpits can also help to enhance the absorption of your favorite Nala deodorant. By removing dead skin cells, your deodorant can penetrate the skin more effectively, providing better protection against sweat and odor.
Improves skin texture: Regular exfoliation can help to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin in your armpits. By removing dead skin cells, the skin looks smoother and more even.
When it comes to exfoliating your armpits, it's important to choose the right products. Look for a gentle exfoliating scrub that is specifically formulated for the armpit area. Avoid using harsh scrubs or loofahs, which can irritate the skin and cause inflammation. Nala's konjac sponges are designed to exfoliate your skin while providing benefits for increased blood circulation, brightening your underarm complexion, and removing the buildup of any impurities. They are also completely natural and can be composted when you're done with them.
