Barring the bikini area, underarms are everyone’s least favourite spot when it comes to hair removal–more so, if you’re ‘team waxing’. They’re more prone to darkening, bumps, burns, sweat, and irritation. Not to mention, the unbearable pain from every strip that’s mercilessly pulled away. Ouch! But do we really have to remove the underarm hair? Well, your body hair, your choice. However, if you like it squeaky clean, we’ve got your back. Here are all the options you have to remove the underarm hair in the best possible way.
How To Remove Underarm Hair
From waxing to shaving, there are a plethora of ways to get hairless armpits. So if you’re confused about how to remove the underarm hair, check out the deets on all the hair removal methods right here:
Waxing is one of the most common ways to get rid of armpit hair. If you head to the salon for it, you can expect a layer of hot wax to be applied in the direction of the hair growth followed by a strip that uproots the hair. If you DIY, you could struggle to get to the hair in the not-so-accessible areas of your armpits while dealing with an annoyingly sticky cold-wax strip. Either way, there’s pain and mess involved. Additionally, waxing also removes a thin layer of the skin making it more susceptible to infection and irritation. In fact, repeated waxing causes the skin to lose its elasticity and appear darker with time. The only upside of this painful hair-removal process is that it removes the hair from its root. That’s why the hair takes time to reappear on the skin’s surface when it regrows. But if the real question in your head is how to remove underarm hair without pain, we’ve got more options for you. Read on.
Hair Removal Cream
Depilatory creams are a painless hair removal solution. These creams contain skin-friendly chemicals that break down the keratin structure of the hair, thin it down, and turn it into a jelly-like consistency. The hair can then be broken off and wiped away easily. Simple, pain-free, and saves a lot of time too. Cool, right?
How To Do It
Wash and pat your underarms dry and apply a layer of the cream on the hairy patch. Leave it on for a few minutes and then wipe it off with a clean cloth or a spatula. Finish it off by applying a mild moisturiser to hydrate the skin. Tada! Clean underarms in a jiffy.
Now, if you’re wondering how to remove underarm hair with minimal effort and the best results, shaving is the way to go. It involves no pain, no mess, and no complications. Before we go on to explain this easy-breezy hair-removal process, we’ve got to bust the biggest myth about shaving. It does not make your hair coarser or regrow faster. Unlike waxing, shaving cuts the hair from the base instead of uprooting it. So it may appear coarser compared to waxing. But be rest assured, there’s no actual change in the thickness or the growth rate of the hair.
How To Do It
Wash and pat your underarms with a clean towel. Apply a shaving cream or a mild cleanser on the area. Now, using a sharp razor, shave in the direction of the hair growth. One stroke and you’re sorted. Yes, that’s all you need to do. Again, don’t forget to moisturise the skin.
