Causes of wrinkles under armpits

There are several reasons that cause this problem, let's discuss the main ones.

1. Our parents and teachers often talked to us in the childhood for stooped shoulders. If a person has a bad posture, then the wrinkles under armpits will spoil body appearance. Keep your chest out and head high!

2. Sagging muscles will lead to skin wrinkles formation. It is important to exercise regularly to keep muscles tension in the proper form.

3. Mostly, wrinkles under the armpit area are formed due to the excess weight. Fat accumulates not locally, but throughout the body. And the armpits are not an exception for it.

4. Improper clothes size can play a cruel joke. It is not correct when the bra or tightly fitting sweaters cut into the skin and squeeze it. Choose things of your size properly.

5. In addition to all the above reasons, the heredity plays a big role. If your parents have already faced a similar issue, then it may also happen to you.

Here are some exercises to remove wrinkles under your armpits

An inactive lifestyle decreases muscle tone and increases excess weight. To keep your body in good shape, you need to move more, walk and also do physical exercises regularly. Here are some of them:

1. Ordinary floor push-ups will help to strengthen the chest muscles. Place your palms approximately shoulder-width apart on the floor. Try not to raise or lower the buttocks too much. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
