Tips on Hair Removal Techniques for Women
1. Take a hot shower first or dip a cotton pad or towel in warm water and clean and remove any debris left from clothes or dirt and any deodorant traces.
2: Lather your arm pits with a generous amount of soap or shampoo or shaving foam or cream whichever you use. Using the warm water and soap one after the other quickly will help soften the hair on the arm pits.
3: Lift your hand high up, so that the skin is stretched for a better shave and shave carefully in up, down or side ways motion since arm pits hair grows in different directions and you need a very clean shave for letting hairs not grow back for a good sometime.
4: After one arm is done, clean the razor under running tap water and follow the same process for the other arm.
5: After you are thoroughly done, take diluted antiseptic liquid in a cotton ball and clean any traces of hair from the arm pits.
6: Take your favorite cream, or plain pure virgin olive oil and massage on to your under arms.Wear a sleeveless dress if you gotta dress immediately or wear sleeved clothes after sometime to let the oil or cream get soaked up.
7: I really dont know if hair retarding creams work, but if they do then you can massage it on to your underarms at night before going to bed .
As for me whenever I’ve done waxing though i generally follow shaving, it’s safe, fast and easy, I’ve gone for ayur cold wax.
1: With cotton dipped in plain water clean the underarms from any traces of debris of deodorant.
2: Spread some baby powder on to your under arm skin to dry it out.
3: Dip the spatula and take the cold wax or warm wax. If you are using warm wax in the direction of hair growth, usually downwards faced.
4: Place the wax strip in the downward direction and press it down.
5: Pull off the wax strip with an Ouch ( 😀 ) in the opposite direction of hair growth. Immediately put pressure on to the skin, press it down with your hand to sooth it.
6: If you are using ready made wax strips then just rub them against each other, place them like said above and remove with a pull in the opposite direction.
7: After waxing is done, clean with a moistened cotton ball or use an after shave lotion to cool down the skin, and follow up with massaging cream or olive oil right after waxing and hair retarders if needed at night before sleeping.

I have no idea about laser treatment for hair removal but I’ve heard, it’s a good one time investment with some regular sittings and follow-ups every 6 months or once a year. But there are chances of pigmentation and some other side effects. Do consult your dermatologist before going in 🙂
