The Beauty Hack You Need for Your Armpits

Are you doing everything to keep them clean?

When it comes to makeup removal, we're meticulous to a fault. We won't just wash our faces once—nope, we have to double cleanse (first with an oil cleanser or balm, then with a foaming facial wash) every single night if we want all traces of makeup gone.

But has it ever occurred to you that this method could work on other parts of the body, too? And by "others," we're talking about your armpits. Yes, you wash them on a daily basis, but are you actually doing everything to keep them clean? Thanks to a little experiment by Reddit user anonnewmommy, we're now convinced that we *need* to oil cleanse our underarms, too.

Here's what she shared on the Asian Beauty Reddit:

"I made a post in the Facebook group about wanting to lighten my armpits (not medical related at all, I promise). A few ladies brought up deodorant being the culprit. I noticed that no matter how much I scrubbed my armpits, they still felt like I had something on them. Last night, after washing my armpits and having that same feeling, I decided to oil cleanse them. I let the oil sit for maybe 5-6 minutes as I did the rest of my shower routine. HOLY COW. My washcloth was covered in little white balls of deodorant. It just kept coming. After rinsing/rewashing with body soap, my armpits felt insanely smooth. This morning, they look lighter and they're so much smoother. I may be on to something here."

We can bet it's oddly satisfying—just imagine gross residue melting away once they come in contact with the oil. And with underarm-baring season well on its way, it's definitely worth a try!
