Tips on Underarm Waxing

In recent years, removing hair in the underarm area through waxing has become increasingly popular. While shaving is definitely the quicker method, waxing has been found to have better results, as it leaves the skin smoother and exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells. It also takes longer for the hair to grow back, and when it does grow back it usually feels softer than before. It’s not surprising that more and more take-home waxing kits and products can be found in the market, unlike before when you can only do it in spas and salons.

If you’d like to do your own underarm hair waxing for the first time and you’re finding it a bit tricky to do so, check out these tips that may be helpful before you take on the actual process.

1. Grow hair for about 3-4 weeks. Waxing too short hair or waxing when cycles of hair growth hasn’t completed may lead to incomplete results and leave some unwanted hair behind, according to expert Dana Renee. Hence, growing hair for about 3-4 weeks is imperative to make sure cycles have all grown out.

2. Avoid doing it during the menstrual period. Says Beauty Feast, women who are experiencing the menstrual period tend to have much more sensitive skin, making the waxing process more painful. Wait for a few more days before doing the application.

3. Prepare the materials. Before the actual process, make sure you have everything you need in hand. These include the actual wax, cloth or cotton strips, powder, spatula, and towel. Settle in front of a mirror so you can quickly see the results after each application.

4. Take a deep breath and relax. According to beauty practitioners, tension can cause the underarm follicles to close. This is bad because the wax won’t reach the roots of the hair. So once you’re all ready to start, take a deep breath, smile, and just remember that after the few minutes of slight pain and discomfort, you’ll have those brand new, exfoliated and hairless armpits you can truly be proud of. 😀

  1. Pretty interesting article. Couldn’t be written any better. Browsing this post reminds me of my old mate. He always kept talking about this. I will send this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I waxed my underarms for the first time a few days ago, I’m starting, so I can avoid looking grey there for my wedding, but I’m still sore and bright red. Also not all the hairs were removed. I did it myself, and the hairs are about half a cm.

    Is there anything I can do to reduce the soreness and redness? and would having it done professionally be better?

    1. The only thing that I have tried that TRULY works is made for men, but dont tell anyone. I like the smell and it has helped me prevent those nasty razor bumps. You can check it out here and let me know if you want a discount on it. My friend sells it and can offer 30% off. 🙂
