ICYDK, people are into underarm detoxing to score flawless kiliklii. They do it to ~purify~ the armpits from sweat, dirt, dead skin, and product buildup. They switch to a natural deodorant and apply a clay mask once a week. Think of it as a DIY facial for the armpits. We talk more about it here, but if you're ready to try it yourself, check out these purifying clay masks.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask

Of course, this list should start with the OG clay mask—the Aztec Indian Bentonite Clay. Mix this with water to create a paste and apply a thin layer on the underarms to detox the product and dead skin buildup. BTW, this formula is potent so you only need a little bit!
