stinky armpits anyone??? hummm…

Divas, are you as obsessed as I am with your underarms? Well I am one of these people who will have VERY stinky underarms if I go one day without wearing deodorant! I am not ashamed of it! (smile) It is what it is. ..No disrespect to my girl Tyra on this picture…I love her but she should know better…


I found out that using the best deodorant does not guarantee you will not spread the funk by the end of the day or while sweating at the club on a saturday night…

My mom actually gave me my first remedy: rub a fresh lemon under your underarms at least twice a week in the shower and dab some baking soda on top of it. The lemon will considerably reduce the sweat and the darkness of your underarms.


My second tip is to use PHILOSOPHY sweet coconut milk scrub on your armpits. I have been crazy about scrubs lately…I discovered this product 3 weeks ago and I am already in love with it!!! The gentle glycerin base of this tropical scrub will leave your underarm skin feeling soft…I still prefer my Bath and Body works Tranquil Mint scrub for the rest of my body though…


My third tip: make sure that you use a good deodorant or antiperspirant.  The two are very different, the first one neutralizes the smell of the sweat as the antiseptic fights bacteria and the latter blocks pores with powerful astringents (aluminum salts mostly) to prevent sweat production. I usually use deodorant as I have read that aluminium can be bad in the long run…My favorites are DEGREE deodorants but nothing can beat my USHUAIA deodorant in “pulpe de Coco des iles sous le vent” …too bad you can only get this brand in Europe or Africa…


And last but definately not least, it’s common sense that you need to get rid of your underarm hair…I found that the quickest way (which also prevents next day black stubly hair return) is to useVEET depilatory cream. Anyone who knows me or my sisters knows we have to have our VEET! I’ve been using it for yeeears and have nay a complaint. At the moment, I really like VEET in shower Hair removal Cream. If you are like me, often pressed for time, being able to use VEET in the shower is brilliant! As opposed to sitting on the side of the tub…waiting…rinsing…and then getting in the shower…This depilatory cream is gentle enough for my underams and strong enough for my thicker leg hair…(I will have to show you my before and after legs using it in my next post…lol!!!)

So divas, next time you go clubbing, make sure your underarms are smooth, well-scrubed and pleasatn smelling!! A diva has got to stay fresh…

    I got that trick from my mom as well and thought it was a Togolese trick! I guess not! J’adore Ushuaïa, ça sent trop bon!

    Great tips! I’ve heard about using lemon on your pits, but never tried it. I think I’ll give it a try!
