If you shave your armpits, we all know what a pain it is to see visible regrowth soon afterwards. If you’re not ready for the wax treatment, but aren’t in the let it grow camp, it may be good to read the definitive way to shave your armpits (given to us by the clever boffs at StyleCraze). This is the only way you should be shaving your pits from now on – no dry shaving over the sink – do it this way or don’t do it at all.
- Get into a hot shower or thoroughly cleanse your armpits with warm water.
- Step out of the shower for a minute and exfoliate your armpit by gently rubbing it with a coarse towel.
- Step back into the shower with your razor. Alternatively, you could apply shaving cream onto your armpit for lubrication.
- Ensure that your razor is sharp and start shaving with your arms raised over your head. If you have sensitive skin, avoid shaving against the direction of hair growth. If you don’t have sensitive skin, you can shave across the grain for a closer shave. However, this might cause ingrown hair.
- Shower with cold water or rinse your armpits with cold water after you’ve finished shaving. This will help close your pores and prevent infection.
- Pat your armpits dry with a towel.
- Moisturize with cucumber juice or coconut oil.
