Epilating Armpits Before And After
This is the picture of my armpits before and after. I’m sharing with you my routine of epilating my underarms. You will find that my underarm hair is thick and coarse. I used to shave but then found that shaving makes my underarms darker and it becomes itchy and annoying. I use Braun silk Epil 9 for epilating my underarms.
Exfoliate The Underarms
Exfoliate regularly. I love exfoliation because it cleans my underarms and removes the dead cells. The key to smooth and shiny skin is exfoliating before hair removal. Although exfoliating is a bit time-consuming, it prevents ingrown hairs and reduces armpit irritation. Many epilators today come with an exfoliating brush to help you exfoliate before and after armpits epilating. Move the brush in circular motions to deeply exfoliate your skin and improve the viability of the hairs you want to remove. According to Braun, their exfoliator brush is 6x more effective than using an ordinary scrub.
Take A Warm Shower
Before epilating your body, you should take a warm shower to reduce the pain caused by epilation. Washing your skin first removes deodorant and skin impurities that might cause skin irritation. If you are going to epilate your armpit only, you can just wash your underarm using warm water. Using your own epilator at home gives you more flexibility. You won’t need to visit a salon or a clinic to remove your underarm hair.
How Do I Soothe My Armpits After Epilating
You can apply Aloe vera gel to moisturize and soothe your skin after using your epilator on your armpits. It is very gentle on the skin and doesn’t irritate after shaving or epilating.
Trim Your Armpit If The Hair Is Long
You might need to trim the hairs before starting the epilation session to make the hair shorter. Epilators work best when the hairs are 0.5-2 mm long. This way it is easier to grip the hairs with the epilator tweezers. In general, the underarm area is small and you will find that epilating armpits is faster than other body areas.
If you have long hair, I recommend that you trim it 2 days beforehand to make the epilator gentler.
When you epilate your armpit regularly, you will find it easier each time and quicker than before. I use Braun Silk Epil 9 and it is not painful on my armpits at all. I think it is one of the best epilators on the market.

What Are The Benefits of Epilating Underarms?
Provides Lasting Smoothness
When you remove your armpit hair with an epilator, you can get up to 4 weeks stubble-free. As the tweezers pull the hairs off, they take a longer time to grow back. You will get better results than shaving or using creams. Plus, when the hair grows back it would be soft on the skin.
More Efficient Than Waxing on Short Hairs
Waxing is not capable of removing short hair as the hair should be at least 1.5 mm long. It is also less painful which will help you epilate unwanted hair weekly or when the hair comes back.
Gentler Than Shaving
Shaving your underarms is very annoying. When I shave, I feel my underarms are very itchy when the picky hair appears again. Using razors on sensitive areas is painful and not worth it. On the other hand, I found the epilator easy to use and the hair has softer, narrower tips than before.
Hair Grows Back Finer Than Before
The more you use the epilator, the more comfortable you would feel compared to your first session. Besides, the massage cap manipulates your brain and makes you feel less pain when you use your epilator. Besides, epilation removes the hair from the root which means the hair grows at a different speed from other hairs. You will find fewer hairs to epilate if you use your device weekly or every 2 weeks.
Can You Epilate Armpits?
Yes. you should epilate your underarms if epilation doesn’t cause skin irritation to you. For me, I liked epilating more than waxing because it is less hurtful. Also, I find it less irritating to my skin than shaving. When I shave, my skin gets inflamed and swollen. Using an epilator is more gentle o the skin and sweating are not irritating compared to other hair removal methods.
How Often Should You Epilate Your Armpits?
It is up to you. I think you should epilate your armpits every 1-2 weeks to keep your underarms smooth and hygienic. Although some women only need to use their epilators once every month. In general, doing your armpits more often will reduce the pain you feel and will also elongate the hair growth cycle. Maybe later you would only need to use yours once per month.

I hope you like my epilating armpits before and after the experience. Epilating doesn’t give you permanent results. It is not like IPL or waxing. But I consider it a semi-permanent hair removal method because it gives you results that last for 3-4 weeks. Imagine getting rid of all the razors, creams, and wax to use only one device at home. There are no extra costs. You might only need to buy a mind moisturizer if you found your skin very dry after using your epilator.
