Our 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.
