Hello lovely ladies,
How is your Sunday going on? I am sure you must have indulged yourself with impulse shopping as the greatest sales hit the market. So, it is going to be 72 years of Indian Independence on 15th August 2018 and people are already in the celebration mood. With some of the major e-commerce websites announcing their Independence Day Sale and even the stores offering major clearance sales, we are so tempted to get our hands on the fanciest kinds of stuff that we desired for so long. The Independence Day is indeed a very special day for all of us and is a constant reminder of the sacrifices that soldiers, legends, and our ancestors made so that we all can live in a free India. So, a very happy Independence Day to you all!
Diving back to the post, I will be unveiling the secret of getting rid of those dark underarms. Remember the time, when this advertisement pops up on our television screens which shows the main advertising character with clear and fair underarms. Honestly, my heart would skip a beat and I would immediately start fantasizing myself with such amazingly clear underarms. Before we move further, I would like to take a pause and tell all of you that having dark underarms is not a problem as long as you are confident in your own skin. It is very important to embrace your true self and all the flaws with it. Real beauty can never be measured by a fairness scale. I would also like to add in here, that if you feel that you are going to look more beautiful when you will be a scale fairer, then go ahead with it. There is no harm in that. Everyone has a different perception and definition of beauty. I have seen people criticizing the ones who go for surgeries or lip fillers or laser treatments to look more beautiful. Why? Why would you criticize someone who is just trying to look better without harming other people in the process? So, girls don't listen to what others have to say. If you want to groom yourself then go ahead with it. As long as it does not harm any other individual, I would say that you are good to go. Now if you want to jazz up in your favorite sleeveless dresses and flaunt spotless and even-toned underarms, it is OKAY to do that and you must go for it. And I am here to help take you your first step towards achieving this goal.
Recently, I came across a new brand named Dot & Key Skincare. They have a revolutionary range of products for parts of our body that are deprived of love and are often overlooked. Their fresh take on skincare includes products like color correction serums and masks for underarms, tan-minimizing clay masque, retexturizing serum for elbows and knees, pre-swim and post-swim hair and skin care products, foot-creams and much more. Let us just have a look at the brand philosophy.
Dot and Key Skincare is founded in 2018 and they emphasize on skincare products for the parts of our body that are overlooked. Remember the time when we wished that there must be some product for fixing the pigmentation of underarms, or a shield that protects your skin from chlorine while you swim or sunscreen for hair. All these were just left to our imagination until Dot and Key Skincare launched their revolutionary range of products with solutions to these problems. All the products of Dot and Key Skincare are toxin-free (free from sulphates, parabens, alcohol, and phthalates), cruelty-free and dermatologically tested. To know more about this brand and their philosophy, visit Dot and Key Skincare's website.
Today, I will take you through two of their revolutionary products which are definitely my favorites. As an overweight kid and because I was too lazy to watch out for my skin in my early teenage days, I often neglected my underarms and the continuous application of underarm roll-ons, I was left with pigmented dark skin. Now, when I started on this blogging journey, I realized the importance of skincare. Even though I am pretty confident in my skin and have made my peace with all my flaws, I still have the urge to look better than yesterday. Pigmented underarms really shook my inner confidence at events and shoots. As a result, I would stop buying sleeveless clothes or end up concealing the pigmentation with makeup somehow. All these are temporary solutions and did not leave a lasting confidence in me. You would laugh out loud if I tell you that I tried on bazillion home remedies too. Some of them do work but they are too much time-consuming. So, when I started reading reviews about the Underarm Colour Correction Serum and Underarm Detox and Colour Correction Mask by Dot and Key Skincare, I literally breathed with relief. I was totally enthralled to try these products out and to be honest, they did not disappoint me. Let us know see, how I include these products in my skincare regime and how you can also get rid of your dark underarms easily.
1. Underarm Detox and Colour Correction Mask
This is just like any other mask, nothing fancy. You need to apply a thick layer of this mask to your underarms and leave it there for 20 minutes. Rinse with water and pat it dry with a soft towel. To be used twice in a week for better results.
This mask is loaded with the goodness of activated charcoal, peppermint and tea tree oils. Activated charcoal pulls out the impurities and accumulated dead skin cells. The peppermint and tea tree oils deodorize your underarms leaving a lasting fragrance that lingers on for a long time. The peppermint makes sure that your underarms feel refreshed as your skin. This mask also helps in fighting dry sweat and makes the skin tone lighter, brighter and make it even-toned.
Underarm Detox and Colour Correction Mask is priced at Rs 675 for 100gm. This mask is available on all leading e-commerce websites including Amazon and Flipkart. You can also buy it from Dot and Key Skincare's website.
2. Underarm Colour Correction Serum
The next step after the Underarm Detox and Colour Correction Mask is applying Underarm Colour Correction Serum. Apply 2-3 pumps to the pigmented area and that's it. It is not mandatory to apply it only after the mask treatment, but you can just cleanse your underarms with water, pat it dry and then apply the serum. Use it twice daily for better and quick results.
The serum contains skin-lightening botanicals named Uva ursi (bearberry) leaf and Paeonia suffruticosa (peony) root, which helps in preventing melanin formulation and helps in lightening the skin and makes it even-toned. It leaves the underarm sin free from any roughness and makes it soft and smooth.
Underarm Colour Correction Serum is priced at Rs 895 for 50ml. This serum is available on all leading e-commerce websites including Amazon and Flipkart. You can also buy it from Dot and Key Skincare's website.
1. Will I recommend Dot and Key Skincare to others?
Yes, because they have introduced a revolutionary range of products which takes care of our overlooked body parts. All their products are toxin free, dermatologically tested and cruelty-free too.
2. Value for money?
The products might look expensive for the first time but it is better to use products from a trusted brand than spending a fortune on holy grails. For me, the price is totally worth it.
3. Will I repurchase products from Dot and Key Skincare?
Yes, yes and yes.
4. Which product did I like the most?
I totally love the Underarm Colour Correction Serum. It is easy to carry, comes in a compact and adorable packaging, and definitely serves the purpose.
5. Any cons of using Dot and Key Skincare?
The products are free from nasty chemicals and I did not observe any side-effects. But again, I strongly recommend going through a patch test before using these products as the underarm skin is very sensitive.
I hope now you can bring about a change in your wardrobe and stock it up with those pretty sleeveless dresses and smoking hot camisoles.
