Best Hair Removal Options for Underarm Care

You’ve got to be out of the house soon. You were going to wear your favourite tank top but you haven’t shaved your underarms in quite a while. You quickly grab a razor and take care of the problem so you can get going.

Shaving is the fastest option but it’s not the best hair removal method available to you. It increases your chance for ingrown hairs and can cause painful razor bumps and discolouration. Knicks and cuts under your arms can be pretty painful as well.

There are other ways to tackle unwanted underarm hair. Keep reading for a few tried and true methods that work. 


You can make your own home hair removal wax using ingredients that you have on hand. All you need is honey, lemon, and sugar. 

Place a container inside a pot of boiling water on the stove and use it to mix together your ingredients until it reaches a thick consistency. This is called double boiling. 

Put the substance on your underarm and allow it to cool. Rip it off and the hair should come with it. 


Epilators use rotating blades to grab your underarm hair and pull it out. We won't lie, it doesn't feel good but it's effective. 

You can cut down on some of the pain by putting baby powder on your underarm first. It will stop the device from pinching your skin at least. 

If you're going to use this method, make sure you do it before your underarm hair gets too long. Long hairs will get tangled up in the device.

Laser Hair Removal

The best hair remover has to go to laser hair removal. It targets the hair follicle directly to get rid of your unwanted underarm hair.

The process doesn't hurt at all and it's completely safe. All you have to do is sit back and relax. 

Hair Removal Creams

Hair removal creams will work in a pinch. All you have to do is spread it under your arms and wait for a couple of minutes.

The chemicals inside the cream will loosen up the hairs so they can be gently wiped away with a cloth. 


Electrolysis isn't cheap but it can be a permanent solution to your hair problem. In electrolysis, the hair follicles are destroyed and it can be a bit painful. 

The good thing is that it's quick. Your session will only last for about 20 minutes. Still, if you want to avoid pain, laser hair removal might be a better choice. 

Best Hair Removal Options for Underarms 

Are you getting tired of your unwanted underarm hair? You can always shave it off but taking a razor to it isn't the best hair removal method around. It leads to more problems than it's worth. 

Try out one of these alternative solutions for a quick and mostly painless way to have smooth underarms.
