Many of us follow many techniques of hair removal for under arms like shaving, waxing, using hair removing creams and even facial hair removal. Here ‘s giving your a few tips as to how to do these hair removal techniques for your under arms and still get that smooth skin for underarms by following the right technique.

Tips on Hair Removal Techniques for Women

For Shaving:

1. Take a hot shower first or dip a cotton pad or towel in warm water and clean and remove any debris left from clothes or dirt and any deodorant traces.

2: Lather your arm pits with a generous amount of soap or shampoo or shaving foam or cream whichever you use. Using the warm water and soap one after the other quickly will help soften the hair on the arm pits.

3: Lift your hand high up, so that the skin is stretched for a better shave and shave carefully in up, down or side ways motion since arm pits hair grows in different directions and you need a very clean shave for letting hairs not grow back for a good sometime.

4: After one arm is done, clean the razor under running tap water and follow the same process for the other arm.

5: After you are thoroughly done, take diluted antiseptic liquid in a cotton ball and clean any traces of hair from the arm pits.

6: Take your favorite cream, or plain pure virgin olive oil and massage on to your under arms.Wear a sleeveless dress if you gotta dress immediately or wear sleeved clothes after sometime to let the oil or cream get soaked up.

7: I really dont know if hair retarding creams work, but if they do then you can massage it on to your underarms at night before going to bed .

For Waxing:

As for me whenever I’ve done waxing though i generally follow shaving, it’s safe, fast and easy, I’ve gone for ayur cold wax.

1: With cotton dipped in plain water clean the underarms from any traces of debris of deodorant.

2: Spread some baby powder on to your under arm skin to dry it out.

3: Dip the spatula and take the cold wax or warm wax. If you are using warm wax in the direction of hair growth, usually downwards faced.

4: Place the wax strip in the downward direction and press it down.

5: Pull off the wax strip with an Ouch ( :D ) in the opposite direction of hair growth. Immediately put pressure on to the skin, press it down with your hand to sooth it.

6: If you are using ready made wax strips then just rub them against each other, place them like said above and remove with a pull in the opposite direction.

7: After waxing is done, clean with a moistened cotton ball or use an after shave lotion to cool down the skin, and follow up with massaging cream or olive oil right after waxing and hair retarders if needed at night before sleeping.

For Hair Removing creams:

Yet another hair removing techniques, but they may burn your skin, so do a patch test first before anything else.

1. Clean you’re under arms with a cotton ball to remove all debris and deodorant traces.

2: Read the instructions as to how long it is suitable for you depending on your hair thickness and coarseness.

3: Take your hand high, use the cream with the spatula and cover the hair evenly, take a look into mirror if needed.

4: Keep warm water in a bowl and use towel or cotton balls dipped into it and remove the cream from the under arms after the required time.

5: Clean well and use a moisturizer or olive oil and follow it by a night routine of hair retarding cream if you prefer.

I have no idea about laser treatment for hair removal but I’ve heard, it’s a good one time investment with some regular sittings and follow-ups every 6 months or once a year. But there are chances of pigmentation and some other side effects. Do consult your dermatologist before going in :)

Hope these tips on best hair removal techniques gave you a clear idea. Leave us your valuable comments.

      well, it’s like answering this question “which technique do u like for eye brow shaping? plucking with tweezers or threading at a parlor? ” some would say threading ,some would say plucking, i say plucking ,cuz honestly i hardly go to parlors and after threading i used to get rashes. So for under arms, well if u are okay with waxing , do that, whichever u are good at. I am comfortable with shaving ,easy painless,less messy (even Isabella (Bella) shaves at her honey moon at the Island of Rio with Edward (Breaking Dawn-1 LOL :P ),if u do a survey for women, most will say they prefer shaving,cuz it’s easy, nothing else. But best if laser, cuz no matter which technique u use , constant hair removal darkens a place . so if ur skin and pocket is fit for a laser, go for that.Dats a good advice girl ;) Thanks for the lovely comment ! :)

        I had tried waxing once and it wasn’t a good experience for me :( I don’t have much underarm hair ( hereditary i guess :P ) but obviously bare underarms are much better :D After listening how great waxing was i tried it and ended up getting red blisters( i think maybe blood cause i hurt sooo very much) which looked worse. it took me a month to get rid of the spots left by blisters, couldn’t wear sleeveless clothes :'(
        so, i wanted to ask, is it only me? Or it sometimes may happen?

        • Zinnia

          i tried twice and both the times i got rashes, not really blister types but yes, red small little rashes, my friend had warned me previously, so thank fully before trying i had made some ice cubes with mint leaves juice and water, i applied it on to the affected area to sooth it down,it was burning like hell…..never gonna try again! Again another frnd of mine is apt wid waxing, loves it, gets no rashes, no nothing….and after waxing she uses ayur massage cream with aloe extracts, says it soothes down the popping up of any rashes..well dats her view ;) diff ppl diff skin reactions :D thanks for the lovely comment :)

      Potato is good option to get rid of dark underarms. It is a natural bleaching agent and will not cause skin irritation. Rub a thin slice of potato for about 15-20 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this remedy twice or thrice a week for the best results.

    Dear akshita, some of the main causes of dark underarms are shaving, regular use of hair removing creams, excessive sweating, poor ventilation of underarms, accumulation of dead skin cells, and use of alcohol-based deodorants and antiperspirants. Few ways of whitening underarms are by rub a slice of potato/ cucumber/ lemon. Apply any of the juices to the affected area, allow it to dry for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Another way is to apply a paste of baking soda and water. Use this paste to scrub your underarms. Wash it off and pat dry the area thoroughly. Repeat a few times a week. Hope you find these tips to be useful !!
