Fight Underarm Bumps


Shaving your armpits isn't just for summertime, and you probably shave them as much as your legs. But your underarm skin is really sensitive, and because you sweat, it's a breeding ground for bacteria.

You've probably been a victim of little red spots, but here's some tips to battle those bumps.

  • Wash your armpits (and the rest of your body while you're at it) after exercising.
  • Toss your dull razors - they can cause major irritation.
  • Try not to keep your razor in the shower - it ups the chance for bacteria to grow on your blade, which leads to those annoying bumps.
  • Clean your razor after each use with a quick dip in some rubbing alcohol.
  • Toss your disposable razor or blade after 3 uses.

Hope these tips help you look fabulous in your strapless New Year's Eve gown.
