We know it's sandal season, and with the warmer weather, your feet won't be the only body-part out in the open. Tank top season requires underarms as pretty as you (or as close as is possible!), and aside from making sure your pits are hairless, you'll want to go one step further and ensure they are soft and even-toned.
