Tips For Underarm Shaving
Learn how to trim and shave armpit hair like a pro, and add it to your shaving ritual
Shaving your underarms
Armed with the right tools, like the All Purpose Gillette STYLER and Gillette BODY, shaving your underarms is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get great results, every time:
Select a fixed comb lengthThe right comb length on your body hair trimmer can help you tame full, natural growth that hasn’t been touched by a razor for a while – or ever. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.
TrimTrim your underarm hair. Trimming the hair before shaving can help prevent clogged blades.
ShowerThe water will help soften your underarm hair (which can be wiry) and make it easier for the razor to glide over your skin. Gillette STYLER is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.
Lather Up with Shave GelA good lather helps to hydrate hairs, enhance razor glide, andand protect your skin while you shave your underarms.
Check for Dull BladesBlade feeling dull or lubrication strips looking faded? It may be time for you to swap your blade attachment before you begin.
Shave with Light, Gentle StrokesShave with light, gentle strokes, rinsing often, and with the skin pulled taut. Gillette BODY is a good choice for shaving sensitive skin such as the underarms because it features a rounded head with 3 lubrication strips.
Rinse Your Blades OftenRun the blades gently under the tap every few strokes, both the back and front sides of the blades, and then gently shake excess water off. Do not tap your razor against the sink or wipe against a towel; these habits can reduce the life of the razor by affecting the intricate design of the blade components. Rinsing the blades under running water helps to remove built built-up shaving gel, hair, and dead skin.
Shave in multiple directionsUnderarm hair grows in all different directions, so choose a razor that’s designed to shave those tricky spots… like Gillette BODY.
Re-apply Shave Gel As NeededYou may find that you need to shave over the same spot in different directions to get a smooth shave. In order to help prevent shaving rash on your underarm skin, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.
Rinse, Dry, and MoisturiseMoisturising after shaving your underarms is critical – it helps soothe the skin
