The Dark Armpit Ladies

Hello Divas!

Say hello to a fellow blogger who also has a case of the attack of the terrible armpits. Go visit her blog Material World and show her some love.

Those of you who don't know what it is like to have dark armpits will not understand the frustration we ladies go through on a daily basis, especially since most of us also sweat A LOT!!!!!

We also spend a lot of money on different things that are supposed to help but sometimes just make it all worse.

Trying To Decide If I Want To Spend Money On A Haircut

Hello Divas!

I have been cutting my own hair or getting my friends to do it for the last three years. I also cut my own bangs and have a friend do touch ups every few months but I have been debating going to a salon and getting my bangs professionally done.

I really want my bangs to look like Tamara Taylor's bangs (she plays Dr. Saroyan on Bones ) because I think they are cute and fit her face really well.

The big issue for me is that I also like to have my bangs long enough to sweep to the side like Taraji P. Henderson's so I think I would need to get the lower layer cut short like Tamara and then have longer layers cut on top of that like Taraji.

I am not sure if they can do what I want so I am wondering if I should just ask for the Tamara bangs and then cut my own Taraji bangs on top of that.

Colder And Moisturize!!!!!

Hello Divas!!!!!

I don't know about where you live, but right now we are having some bouts of colder weather every now and then as we get closer to winter. This means wearing more clothes, taking hotter showers and even running the heater some nights.

All of this hot and dry air will do a SERIOUS number on your skin so you need to moisturize, Moisturize, MOISTURIZE even more than ever.

I think I am turning into a Garnier spokesperson because I am now using their moisturizing gel creme and I must say I LOVE IT!!!!!!

It is a bit pricey for the size of the jar but I only use it on my neck and chest at night before bed so it is lasting me a long time. The gel is light and refreshing just like it says on the box....without being greasy or feeling heavy AND it has a lovely clean scent.

Another thing I do to keep moisturized is to run my little humidifier at night while I sleep because we all know how drying the night air can be to your skin while you try to get your beauty sleep.

As always, drink a LOT of water, as much as you can stand and then some more to make sure your skin stays soft and supple as you prepare for the battle of the dry winter skin.

I am now using Palmer's Cocoa Butter on my sad and sorry dark armpits at night to keep them moisturized after the last fiasco with the antiperspirant. This seems to help with the itching and flaking at night and has also soothed the burning.

I really hope my armpits heal up quickly because I have a function to attend this weekend and I do not want to to be in pain or even worse be all stinky because I cannot use anything.

Those who have good armpits have a real blessing and should appreciate it because those of us with the curse of the dark armpits have a DOUBLE problem!!!!!!

In any case, be moisturized, soft and supple!!!!!
