How to Have Smoother Underarms Even After Shaving

Give your underarms some lovin'!

It's a known fact that shaving can damage the underarms. Every time the razor blade touches the surface, it not only takes out the hair but a layer of skin, too! This causes darkening and bumps on the pits. But since this is the most popular underarm hair removal method, it's best to be aware of the proper way to shave to save your armpits.

1. Prep responsibly

For a smoother shave, massage oil on your underarms at least an hour prior to shaving. This will give moisture and protection against the blade of your razor.

2. Shave properly

Using the right type of razor will help prevent bumps and ingrown hair. Get one with tiny blades that can adapt to the contours of your underarm. Also, refrain from overshaving one area as this can cause irritation, ingrown hairs, and darkening!

3. Cleanse gently

The underarm has a thin and sensitive skin surface, so harsh soaps may irritate it. Wash it with a gentle non-soap cleanser.


Try: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, at department stores

4. Care correctly

Use a deodorant with natural-based ingredients and moisturizing properties for softer and smoother underarms.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
