Underarm hair removal is quite a norm in many places. We, as women, remove underarm hair not just to keep our physical appearance attractive, we also want to prevent unpleasant body odor.

3. Remember to put on lotion/moisturizer after shave
Every hair removal treatments make your underarm skin dry. As a result, dry armpits normally look darker than ones which are properly moisturized. That being said, remember to put on gentle moisturizer to soften your underarm after you are done shaving.
