Armpit Hair Removal: How to do it right?

The hair removal armpit is one of the most common practices, made both by women as by men. But is there a right way to do it? Why shave your armpits? What precautions should be taken when doing this type of hair removal? What are the existing types? If you want to find out the answer to all these questions, check now the text we wrote on the subject and answer your questions! But first, what are the armpits really?

What is the function of the armpits?

The armpits do not really have a function in our body, since it is the connection between our arm and our torso. On the other hand, the reason why we have underarm hair is quite easy to understand. Because it is a warmer region and naturally accumulates more fat, it also tends to sweat more than other regions. Experts concluded that the hair was born exactly to retain this sweat and prevent it from getting in the way.

However, after many years of evolution in aesthetics and fundamental changes in the way we live , hair can be removed without affecting us directly. In fact, armpit hair removal ended up becoming a very common habit, both for women and for men.

Why do epilating on the armpit?

There are many reasons why people do armpit hair removal. The first of them has to do with the cultural issue . Nowadays, a person is seen as better fitted aesthetically if they have shaved armpits, especially in the case of women.

But anyone who thinks that this is the only reason why this type of hair removal is done is wrong. As less sweat accumulates in armpits that are shaved, hair removal also helps to reduce the famous smell of unpleasant sweat that is characteristic of this region.

However, the main reason for shaving your armpits should be the person’s own will . In other words, it is necessary to feel good the way you are, with more or less hair in any region of the body.

Armpit Hair Removal Type

There are basically three types of armpit hair removal, they are:

  • Epilation with Razor
  • Laser waxing
  • Waxing

Let’s talk a little more about each one and how they are made.

Epilation with Razor

Razor shaving is one of the most common and certainly the easiest to do. It basically consists of shaving underarm hair with a razor, something that can be done during the bath, for example.

It is important that this type of epilation in the armpit is done with a specific blade for more sensitive areas of the body . This is because the underarm area can easily become irritated, which ends up causing redness, itching and even pain in some cases.

Laser waxing

Underarm laser hair removal is one of the most modern techniques and has been gaining more and more followers. It consists of a process where the laser is activated directly on the melanins that produce the hair, which causes the structures responsible for the growth of the hair to die.

Although often referred to as permanent hair removal, laser hair removal does not guarantee that they will never grow back. However, it is possible to state that this is the type of hair removal that lasts the longest, and may even last for years, depending on the number of sessions performed.

Waxing

The waxing is a technique that can also be called long-term hair removal, although its duration is much lower than the laser hair removal. This technique basically consists of applying a hot wax, which sticks to the hair, followed by a glue that ensures that these hairs are pulled out by the root. It is a technique that is often painful and, therefore, that many people do not like or are afraid of. On the other hand, it usually generates very satisfactory results.

 

After all, should I or should I not perform Armpit Hair Removal?

The question of whether or not to do any type of hair removal is always very open, since no one has an obligation to do anything with their own bodies that they do not want, even if this is a norm of society. So, what we can say here is that you should do what feels right, shaving your armpits when you think it might be beneficial for you. The big secret is, whenever you look in the mirror, feel good about your reflection , regardless of how many hairs you have or where they are. Therefore, the answer to the question posed here should not be answered by us, but by yourself.

Whenever the subject is hair removal, several social and cultural issues also end up being raised , as this is not a natural practice for many people. Still, we emphasize that the most important thing is that you feel at ease with your own body, not only with regard to epilation under the armpits, but with any subject related to aesthetics. Your well-being and the way you see yourself are two things that are directly related. And taking good care of it also means having a better quality of life, living lighter and with less worries.
