Are you tired of reading the cliché recommendation to apply face mask on face and neck? Well, catch up with something trendy and healthy by extending your face mask till your armpits. Women around the world are welcoming spring-summer with this awesome trend that clears the pores where it sweats the most, while helping you flaunt smooth underarms. Extending your face mask to your armpits, aka armpit masks also help detox your underarms besides acting as a natural deodorant.

Charcoal masks with activated charcoal are proving to be a great detoxifier that doesn’t irritate the sensitive skin around the armpits. You can get the one that contains oils or moisturizers too for a smooth touch.

Sneak peak into what yogi’s do when they’re not teaching #secretlifeofchels #notsosecret #donttakeyourselfsoseriously. . And yes, that’s face mask on my pits, because #armpitmask and #yolo. . Let’s talk about PLAY. . Today I woke up and just wanted the vibration of play. And an abundance of it. So I do what any self-respecting, kakao drinking, spiritual seeker does: I called her in. I sat there this morning with my kakao, my journal and some bangers. And I called in Play. And boy-oh-boy (or woman-oh-woman, given it’s International Women’s Day), did Play show up. . My interactions with others were playful and light. Some were a little forced – but I knew that’s because we weren’t aligned. And that’s okay. Not everyone can be aligned with each other in every moment of every day. Because we’re all aligning and realigning with OURSELVES in every single moment of the day. I know we’ll vibe again, so I don’t let that bring me away from my alignment with Play – because my alignment is my priority. . And so I sit there, hanging out with Play in my breath, as I type, as I speak, as I walk. And I think “wouldn’t it be great to have play with me ALL OF THE TIME?” And then I have the most mind-altering realization – which has taken it’s sweet ass time to come to me (but the Universe knows when you’re ready, so y’know – trust). Play is ALWAYS there. Always. It’s just whether or not I’m seeing her. Whether or not I’m linked arm in arm with Play, or whether I’m out in front trying to protect her. Because I’ve always thought Play is too young, too sensitive, to deal with #adulting. Because I grew up so much faster than I needed to. Because at some stage in my life I was in a situation that triggered my lizard brain into survival mode. I’m the first to admit that my upbringing wasn’t traumatic in the same way some people experience. ***continued in comments

Charcoal masks with citric acid are great for removing impurities that have built up with regular use of antiperspirants. While a charcoal mask that’s blended with ACV (apple cider vinegar) helps rebalance your underarms’ microbiome thereby controlling odour in the most natural way possible.

While picking armpit masks, women with sensitive skin must steer clear of the ones that contain baking soda aka sodium bicarbonate. Also, if you shave your underarms then you must mask first and shave later.

Next time you apply a face mask, do not keep your armpits bereft of the goodness that experts are suggesting, influencers recommending and women can’t stop praising about.
