The struggle to keep our pits hair free is real. Sure, this may be one of those posts that you might just about tag with, “Too Much Information, (TMI)” but hey, it is one of those things we women have to constantly battle with. So why not get the word out on it. I have, in fact, mustered the courage to go through a few sessions of underarm laser hair removal treatment but I chickened out when I experienced darkening on the third or fourth session. But the good news is, from every couple of days shaving, it’s now down to once a week. 🙂
Because I’m back to shaving my unwanted pit hair, like 70% of Filipinas, it’s always good to arm myself with facts. Like, did you know that 1/3 of what you remove when shaving is actually skin, which leads to underarm darkening? Along with your hair, shaving takes away the top-most layer of your skin, leaving it irritated. And with continued shaving, skin is unable to heal itself and becomes bumpy, dry and dark. Yikes!
So when Dove summoned us to Go Shave! It’s not without gearing us up with the needed tools to get that darkening possibility to zero to a minimum by using Dove Deodorant with its unique ¼ moisturizing cream, soothes underarm skin from irritation.It helps repair damage caused by shaving, making your underarms lighter and smoother.
Dra. Anna Palabyab-Rufino of the Philippine Dermatological Society says, “Shaving is practically considered a necessity as women want to remove underarm hair, which is why using a deodorant with moisturizing benefits on a daily basis is the perfect way to care for your underarms.”
During the #DoveGoShave event held at The Greens in Greenbelt 5, Dove girls and special guests shared their shaving stories, as well as customized their own Dove Deo Care Kit, which contained items such as a shaver, shaving cream, a complete collection of Dove Original deo products, and a sleeveless top, among others. And because Dove wants women to share the care and their Dove deo stories, attendees were able to personally mail a Dove Deo Care Kit to a loved one!
“In line with Dove’s mission to provide real women with real care, we want to encourage them to go shave, and enjoy their lives fully because Dove deodorant takes care of their underarms,” said Apples Aberin, Unilever Philippines’ PR Head.
