Put Your Hands Up! 10 Quick Underarm Facts

Conscious about your armpits? You're not alone!
Add Yours

article_underarm-facts.jpgOur underarms comprise a very small percentage of our body, and yet they're easily one of the parts we women are very conscious—and sometimes insecure—about. It's a common fact that our underarms take a lot of beating (whether through plucking, shaving, or waxing), resulting in skin that's far from smooth, white, and blemish-free.

A 2011 study conducted in Southeast Asia revealed a wealth of facts about women and their relationships with their underarms. Curious about the findings? Browse through the gallery to check them out.

    whoah! i accidentally read this article, before, i am also one of those girls who feel shy bec of my dark underarms. then i google skin clinics offering whitening products that is cheaper compared to products that can be found in the mall. i happen to see kate jones underarm whitening package online and i bought the product and they also referred me to skin house beauty and laser clinic. they also informed e about this diode laser thingy. i'm so desperate about my underarms so i decided to undergo diode. im on my 3rd session this coming december and i can say that there's a big improveent, i dont have chicken skin anymore and my skin lightens because i dont shave anymore. now i also visit skin house for facial services. high qualty sevices yet low price. love their staff also, they"re so friendly. hihi. :)
