Keep ‘em dry
Needless to say, the biggest thing we deal with this summer is sweat, that can be a major cause of allergies, rashes and that nagging itch. A simple way to care for sensitive areas like your armpits or groin is to ensure that the area is clean, dry and moisturized. Some talcum powder to dry off your armpits (that are prone to sweat) as soon as you’re out of the shower goes a long way to ensure prolonged freshness.
Fragrance is key
Your sensitive areas are more prone to odour in summers, owing to your sweat glands working overtime to keep your body temperature down. While you can’t control the weather (or your body’s response to it, for that matter), what you can do is pick cleansers with fragrances that give you lasting freshness AND keep the BO at bay. Aqua, citrus and mint are popular picks in the hotter months, so if you’re looking to give your sensitive areas a refresh, you know what to reach for on that shelf.
Intimate washes are your BFF
For the uninitiated, your intimate areas, i.e. some of the most sensitive parts of your body such as your groin, the inside of your thighs, etc.), are prone to rashes and infections that come with imbalances in their pH. Enter intimate washes- cleansers that know those sensitive areas inside out for a gentle cleanse that also balances your skin’s pH along the way. You know what they say- an intimate wash a day, keeps those nasty infections away! P.S. Don’t forget to wear loose clothing and let your skin breathe a little!
While tropical summers often get a bad name because of the issues they bring along, following a few basic tips like these will keep all your skin troubles away as you have fun in the sun.
