It is essential to take care of underhair to prevent odors in the delicate area and for hygiene reasons.
Many people take care of their underhair by themselves.
The following are some tips on how to shave and care for your underarm hair, which may be difficult to ask others.
How to shave well with a razor and scissors
If you use a razor and scissors, first prepare a pair of scissors, a T-shaped razor, an electric shaver, and shaving cream that you are comfortable with.
Then, decide in advance what kind of V-line you want and how you want to shave it.
If you have long legs of hair, cut them short with an electric shaver or scissors beforehand.
When you are ready, apply shaving cream to the underhair and actually shave it with a T-shaped razor.
The key is to shave without going against the flow of the underhair.
Shaving against the flow can damage the skin, cause pigmentation, or even bury the hair.
Also, care should be taken to shave gradually from the outside toward the center to narrow the area of hair.
Alternating between shaving the left and right side of the hair will reduce the chance of failure and create a symmetrical, balanced shape.
[Avoid using hair pullers.
Some people pull the hair out from the root when treating the hair, but we do not recommend using hair pluckers.
The pulling of the hair can damage the skin, cause ingrown hairs, or even cause inflammation.
It is also painful, so avoid using a hair puller to remove hair.
Is there any trick or method to avoid prickling after shaving?
When shaving with a razor, it is common for the underarm hair to rub against the skin, causing friction, and the tips of the cut hairs can also prickle against the skin.
To avoid tingling after shaving, try to wear underwear that is as non-tight as possible.
If the stinging is severe, try to cool the area with coolant to alleviate it.
Another option is to use a heat cutter.
Heat cutters burn off the hairs, resulting in a rounded cross-sectional treatment and reducing the discomfort of prickling.
The skin is damaged when the hairs are processed.
It is also important to keep the skin well moisturized after treatment with a cream specially designed for the delicate zone.
LUMEVE is a care product for the delicate zone, so it can be used safely to care for sensitive skin after shaving the underarm hair.
