Caring for Your Underarms
An essential summer grooming guide for men
(Family Features) With summer weather finally here, increased sweating is bound to happen. While using a cleanser or lathering on sunblock may be an obvious part of a guy’s summer grooming routine – applying deodorant, and underarm health in general, is surprisingly important to men.
Research from Dove Men+Care shows that nine out of 10 men agree that deodorant is one of the most important personal hygiene products they use in order to feel clean, fresh and confident – and half of men feel it’s especiallyimportant on a warm summer day.
Don’t Sweat It
“The study clearly reveals the gap between the issues men face and easy solutions to their problems. Many men are dealing with underarm issues, but only three out of 10 have spoken to their friends or family about experiencing these challenges,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Terrence Keaney. “We need to change this. As a physician, I want men to feel comfortable speaking to a medical professional about their underarm issues, as there are many ways to treat and prevent them.”
“I see so many men continue to switch their deodorant trying to find the one that’s right for them instead of seeking help from a physician or talking to one another about what’s bothering them,” Keaney said. “I highly recommend using a product that has moisturizing agents, such as Dove Men+Care’s Cool Fresh antiperspirant stick, which was developed with a clinically proven, non-irritating formula and moisturizing technology to actively care for men’s skin.”
With so many men facing these common challenges, Dove Men+Care has teamed up with leaders in fitness, style and grooming, along with Keaney, to create the Guide to Complete Underarm Care, which aims to open a dialogue around underarm health.
“Since men are so hesitant to talk to their doctors or friends, I think this online guide will be a terrific resource for them to ask the tough questions they have traditionally been too embarrassed to ask,” Keaney said.
