Fast And Easy Underarm Hair Removal


Underarm Hair Removal The DIY Way

For underarm hair removal, the most common methods used are tweezing, shaving and depilation. Compared to electrolysis, waxing and laser, these methods are less costly, more convenient and easily done at home.

Although these methods only give temporary hair free skin, many people prefer these over procedures that require going to a beauty clinic or spa.

Underarm Hair Removal By Tweezing

Tweezing forcefully removes hair from its follicle and is painful, although the pain level is tolerable. Since the underarm is not a large area of hair, this method of underarm hair removal is still effective, giving a smooth hair free skin that lasts several days. A disadvantage is that hair has to grow out a little before it can be successfully gripped by tweezers and removed. Skin will be itchy during hair growth.

Underarm Hair Removal By Shaving

Shaving is another commonly used method. This is usually done during a shower when shaving cream and hot water is used with a manual razor. You can get smooth skin if hair is long enough to be shaved. If not properly done, you could end up with stubble. Again, skin will itch as hair grows out. Shaving has to be done almost daily as hair is only removed from the surface of skin.

Underarm Hair Removal By Depilation

Depilation is another method that removes hair above the skin. Popular depilatories include hair removal creams and gels. Some new products use technologies such as radio wave to kill or disable hair follicles.

Hair removal creams and gels are popular for underarm hair removal because compared to laser treatment, they are cheap and convenient to use. Hair can be removed quickly and are available in various forms such as rub-on lotions and roll-on gels.

When hair starts growing, you have to live with stubble that itches until the hair is long enough to be removed again. You may have to use the cream or gel twice to remove all hair before washing off the residual.

Chemicals found in depilation products tend to be messy and have a strong smell. Those with sensitive skin can have adverse skin irritations such as redness or itchiness. It's best to try out such products on a small skin area before using it extensively for underarm hair removal.
