THERE IS nothing more irritating than ending up with hairy, sore armpits after shaving.
But one woman has shared a video explaining how to get silky smooth pits – and it all depends on the direction of your razor.
Body positivity influencer Millie Clay took ICT Tac to reveal her top tips for getting the perfect pits, starting with exfoliation.
Afterwards, Millie advises using shaving cream or conditioner – a generous amount – before getting ready with a new razor.
As for the shave itself, Millie says it’s best to go down with the razor, before going to one side, then the other.
Then, shave upwards and, to finish, use the razor in a back and forth motion.
Once you’ve gotten rid of all the hair, apply a sensitive moisturizer and top up with oil.
However, Millie’s technique caused concern among some of the commenters, with one writing, “Is it a hairbrush or a razor? Jesus, I’m scared the way you did that.”
“It’s too aggressive. You could hurt yourself,” another person wrote.
A third explained that they used the shaving method on their legs, but were apprehensive about doing the same on their armpits.
“I do it on my legs and agree that it’s much better. But I’m not strong enough to shave my armpits like that,” they wrote.
Millie highlighted in the video the importance of a good razor and added that she is a fan of Estrid blades.
