How Dove saved my underarms from public humiliation

Not too long ago, I shared with you a recent experience I had with Dove. I was able to try their shampoo and conditioner and after a few months, I noticed a positive change in my hair. You can learn all about how Dove saved my hair here. Today, I have a different type of relationship with Dove, and I need to tell you all about it.

One of my many concerns since I was a teenager was my underarms. I remember this one time I was in high school and I swear I was wearing deodorant, but apparently it wasn’t good enough because someone brought it up in front of the whole class. The worst part is, it wasn’t even a student, it was my teacher who mentioned there was a smell in the class. I knew it was me, and I remember how embarrassing it was and how badly I wanted to throw away my deodorant.

I started googling different options rather than a deodorant because I couldn’t trust mine anymore and I thought all brands were the same. I’ve been trying at least 6 different brands. Even though the stinky problem was solved, I still had other issues with my underarms. After shaving them, they feel tough and look dark. This is how I found Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.

After having a positive experience with Dove Hair products and negative experiences with previous deodorants, I decided Dove was an option. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant provides me with 48-hour odor and wetness protection. The best part is, my skin feels softer and smoother underarms. I decided to get Dove Advanced Care Clear Tone because one of my goals is to clear the of my underarms in the long run.

Since this is winter season but at the same time I’m traveling to a tropical country for the Holidays, I decided to share two tips from Dove Dermatologist Dr. Alicia Barba for both case scenarios.

Winter season underarm survival:

Care for your underarms. Underarm skin is sensitive and an area that shouldn’t be overlooked. Textures and fabrics in sweaters, undergarments and t-shirts can irritate the skin. Underneath all those layers, you’ll need a product that keeps you hydrated and protected. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is formulated with moisturizers to help alleviate irritation and leave you with softer and smoother underarms.

For those traveling to Hot weather:

Bring weather-dependent necessities. In addition to the basics, if you’re traveling where it’s hot, humid and sunny you’re going to want to bring blotting papers, a stronger SPF and a lightweight moisturizer. If you’re heading somewhere cold, pack lip balm, a richer moisturizer and a hydrating face mask to help combat the dry air
