They deserve equal love as well, goddammit.
When it comes to looking after our bodies, our faces are the top priority. We (nearly) always cleanse, moisturise and religiously slather on the SPF when we’re out in the sun. The same goes for our hair and hands – and even our legs once winter hibernation is over.
But what about those body parts you don’t regularly see? The kind of awkward bits that you skimp on in a second if you’re rushing to get ready – or wouldn’t even think of at all?
From your underarms right down to your toes, here’s how to care for the most neglected parts of your body.
Let’s face it, feet have a hard job so it’s time to pay it forward. If your feet are dry and cracked, treat them to a weekly exfoliation routine, using a scrub followed by a gentle pumice stone rub. For extra soft feet, slather them in moisturiser and pop on socks before you go to bed. When you wake up in the morning, they’ll be silky smooth.
If there was ever a mistreated body part, it’s the underarm. They’re hastily shaved and waxed and often hidden in embarrassment. Using Dove Original Deodorant Roll On or Aerosol is a great way to show them some TLC – providing 24 hour protection from sweat and odour, it also boasts the benefit of skincare, giving your skin a serious boost of hydration. The unique formula is made up of one quarter moisturising cream meaning our underarms are finally given the chance to repair themselves from the damage that comes with shaving. After all, it’s second nature to moisturise legs after shaving to ensure they look great – why not the same with your armpits?
