Being a Mom, my weight has fluctuated with each pregnancy and ultimately affected my body. I'm (mostly) comfortable in my skin and I love being curvy but dark marks under my arms are a problem! I can't stand it! It looks ugly and makes me sad! Did you know that dark marks are created when shaving irritates the skin? I always thought it was caused by my weight gain and loss! I have always felt like there is nothing I can do to get rid of dark marks so even though I love tank tops and dresses - I have days where I refuse to wear them because my arms look chunky and dark but now I have faith that Dove Clear Tone Deodorant will help me lighten my marks! Just in time for this hot, hot California weather.
One of my longtime tricks to hiding the ugly discoloration is by wearing a cute cardigan with tank tops or dresses! Cardigans come in a bunch of colors and styles and are lightweight which is perfect for Summer. I throw on a cardigan for anything - you can most definitely wear it casual or dress up it up.
Another longtime trick is to wear shirts that barely cover my underarm. This isn't as easy as wearing a cardigan because I have a hard time finding shirts that I like!
A funny thing I do and I'm sure a lot of us won't admit is that I calculate my movements when I'm wearing a tank top or dress so I don't have to show off my underarms but I don't want to live like this anymore!
I would love to stay away from wearing my safety blanket this Summer since it's been hot so I'm super excited to try Dove Clear Tone Deodorant and see some results. I know I'll be a happier person!
