Whether you prefer to wax or shave, these tips for underarm hair removal will make the experience easier and leave you with way smoother pits. You’re so welcome! Sensitive armpits, darkened skin and bumpiness are some of our biggest sadness when it comes to this area. But since we love our sleeveless tops and dresses so much – and our need for basic hygiene. There are some dos and don’ts for every girls to know.
#1 Do Always Clean in Advance
Because armpits produce a lot more sweat than the rest of your body, always clean your underarms by washing them with mild soap and warm water before you shave or wax.
#2 Do Think through Dryness
Wax won’t stick to sweaty underarms. Make sure to wash and dry them with a towel. Also, avoid shaving dry armpits, which can cause cuts and irritation.
#3 Do Lift your Arm full way up
You need to stretch your hand up fully, otherwise hair in the skin folds can get missed.
#4 Do not Shave in the wrong direction
Shaving in the opposite direction of hair growth does give a quicker shave
#5 Do Rinse the Blade after each Stroke
With each stroke, the blade can accumulate hair, gunk and dead skin, which blocks the path of the razor as well as contains bacteria. A clean razor blade cuts the hair much more effectively.
Extra Tips 😉 Apply ice immediately after waxing as well as a cooling moisturizer or Aloe Vera gel to sooth the area or do this even after a shave. Happy Waxing Armpits 🙂
