Published by Naked Armor

Mothers always give their 100% in taking care of the house that they no longer have the time to pamper themselves.

The role of a mother is not an easy job and responsibility. You take care of the house while looking after your children, and it is a task for a lifetime. It can be exhausting to the point that you even forget to look after yourself, setting aside what you need or want.

This Mother’s Day, we want you to feel special and make you realize that you still have the right to look and feel good despite having the heavy duties of a mother and that with us, you can achieve it quickly. Just like shaving your underarms and maintaining flawless ones.

Here's what you can find in this article:

Shaving Your Underarms

Shaving your underarms with a safety razor is a treat for your delicate skin. It is sharp yet gentle in doing its job in making underarms flawless. Armpit hair may just be a small surface area to shave and maintain, but don’t let it fool you into believing that the job of making it suitable is easy. Women shaving their armpits can present particular challenges, in which either she addresses them like a boss or ends with the result that no one would have ever wanted.

Women's skin is more delicate than men's, and it's undoubtedly one of the most significant challenges in shaving underarm hair, besides their hollow shape and the need to contort your body awkwardly to reach them. Plus, how quickly the hair seems to grow back makes you want to keep the sleeves even in summer or entirely forgo shaving.

Safety razors consider the sensitivity of the skin making it perfect for women's armpit shaving.

But women are generally confident and strong, so they would still end up shaving despite the difficult factors it comes with to achieve those flawless and smooth armpits. We also love seeing more and more women ditch disposable razors for stainless steel safety razors, and it’s never a wrong decision knowing two billion plastic razors end up in landfills every year. Safety razors can offer many advantages to be enjoyed by men for their whiskers and women for their armpit hair! We all want smooth skin while not harming the environment and our planet.

Safety razors might not be new to some women and find them intimidating. They might be afraid that they would get more cuts with it. Well, it happens more with disposable razors, for sure, not to mention skin irritations and even infections. Shaving with a well-designed safety razor and using proper technique can be a luxurious and fulfilling experience. In this article, you’ll find out why it deserves to be your skin’s best friend. It’s not too late if you haven’t made the switch yet.

Benefits of Shaving Your Underarms

Most women and some men shave their armpit hair, so you’re not alone if you’re thinking you are the only person who is sometimes facing some struggles. Shaving can become tedious because of how often you need to do it, but it takes some effort to get the following great benefits in return. Shaving can be worth it, after all, let alone shaving your underarm hair.

It reduces body odor.

Every human on the planet agrees that BO is utterly disgusting. Nobody wants its horrible scent to go through the olfactory system, and nobody wants, even more, to have that body odor and embarrass themselves around people.

When armpits have hair, it slows down sweat evaporation, giving the bacteria more time to break it down into smelly substances. The hair under your arms traps the scent of your body hair in it. It can linger, especially in crowded areas or warm temperatures. Removing your underarm hair will dramatically cut down on the amount of body odor that gets trapped in your armpits.

You’ll sweat less.

Sweating underarms is probably one of the most uncomfortable experiences when you’re outdoors. If it happened to you, maybe it was on days when your armpits were not clean-shaven. Most hair is porous, meaning it's able to absorb and hold onto sweat. Body hair causes moisture to linger in your armpits longer than it would if there was no hair, making it more likely that it will lead to staining.

Shaving, therefore, eliminates this problem and can cut down on the odor associated with sweat. You won’t have to deal with any more stained shirts at the armpits, and you would benefit from less body odor and armpit sweat.

You’ll have more confidence.

In contrast with having body odor or frequent, sweating armpits, having smooth and clean-shaven ones is the best feeling ever for having no thoughts of embarrassment. Suppose you are a mother, and people would unintentionally see those flawless armpits, plus you give off a pleasant smell. In that case, it gives them the impression that you’re taking care of yourself very well despite your ‘mom’ duties, you are exerting tremendous effort to be hygienic, and therefore you are attractive. Both men and women approve! Hair removal allows you to go outside, be carefree and confident while wearing your favorite sleeveless top.

There’s nothing to be afraid of in using a clean safety razor for shaving your underarm hair. It can be a common and easy way for women to shave, plus the best option because it’s environmentally friendly.

Why Women Should Use A Safety Razor

It provides a more sustainable shave.

For women shaving their armpits whose aim is to make their beauty and grooming routine more environmentally friendly, we highly suggest using a safety razor in shaving your armpit hair. Plastic razors overly contribute to plastic pollution, and recycling stations refuse them due to the materials used in making them. Switching to a long-lasting safety razor can be a great help in the reduction of plastic pollution that has been harming our environment.

A safety razor is kinder to the skin.

Indeed, a safety razor can be your skin’s best friend. Its blade is sharper than a cartridge blade. However, it is gentler on the skin. Disposable razors potentially harm the skin as they tend to remove the skin’s surface layer or cut the hair at a poor angle. Its effects include razor burn, bumps, and ingrown hairs. On the other hand, a safety razor expertly shaves off the hair in one swoop.

Using a safety razor is more hygienic.

One of the benefits of using a safety razor is that it causes less drag on the skin. It is unpleasant and unhygienic to shave with a plastic razor, for it ends up dragging the residue along your skin, clogging the blades with hair, skin, and soap. This problem hardly occurs when you use a quality safety razor in your body’s shaving areas, such as armpits.

It gives a comfortable shaving experience.

Manufacturers expertly make safety razors, which don’t require you to apply too much pressure while shaving. Nothing beats the comfort a safety razor can give, especially that you only need to hold the razor lightly against your skin, making your armpits easier to shave. You only need to shave each section once, saving you more time and keeping you from the worries of getting more cuts with many swoops.

Shaving Underarms Using A Safety Razor

Shaving without preparation can make the process ineffective and would not be a smooth experience. Women shaving their armpits and looking to shave with a safety razor should get an organic shaving soap and shaving brush so they can best prepare and exfoliate the small areas before gliding the blade across their skin.

Exfoliate your underarms.

Exfoliating your skin before shaving is essential. The area under your armpits can be sensitive, which requires the use of a gentle scrub. You can have the choice of using a scrub, a loofah, or a washcloth. Preparing your skin by exfoliating before you shave also prevents ingrown hairs. Exfoliating not only sloughs away dead skin cells but also banishes any deodorant residue and lingering body odor.

Exfoliating gives your face that extra cleansing that washing alone cannot provide.

Use a shaving soap.

The skin under your arms is sensitive, so it’s essential to make a lather out of an organic shaving soap before shaving. Water and an ordinary soap can’t do much, and skipping the step can lead to a more painful shave. Prep each pit with a lather to help your safety razor glide steadily without hitting any snags. Organic shaving soap is safer to use for its chemical-free ingredients. The consistency of the lather will upgrade your shaving experience ,too.

There can be less possibilities of skin irritation if the shaving soap is organic.

Shave in the correct directions.

You can avoid going over the same sensitive area of skin many times with the blade. Raise your arm, pull the skin taut, and gently shave in every direction. What’s good about a quality safety razor is that it shaves off an area with one swoop without applying too much pressure. So, you don’t have to go over the same spot repeatedly to get a smooth finish.

Doing it correctly makes a great difference on the texture of the skin and the closeness of the shave.
