But this neglected area really does so much more for your body than you may realize.

By properly cleansing and detoxifying your pits, not only will you enjoy less of the common underarm woes such as razor burn and irritation, but you will start to feel a whole lot better, as your body starts to finally flush out accumulated impurities as it was meant to do.

Lymph nodes expel toxins and boost immunity

Your underarms do more for your body than you may realize, as they are full of lymph nodes.

Your lymphatic system is an entire network in your body, responsible for aiding the body in flushing out certain toxins.

An armpit detox will help remove dead skin build up in this area, allowing impurities to start flowing out of your body through your sweat glands. 

An armpit detox may sound complicated, but it truly is as simple as proper exfoliation, cleansing and making the switch to a deodorant, that’s designed to support this area and the health of your body. Here are some great tips to help you make the switch and to show you what to expect during the temporary transitional period. 

We highly recommend a gentle massage before applying your deodorant to stimulate your lymph nodes. Just one or two minutes is more than enough, especially if you are doing it every day.

Our pits keep us cool

Sweating is designed to cool us down and prevent overheating. As the sweat is allowed to evaporate, it regulates the temperature, thus cooling the body.
