Waxing your armpits instructions & video

Wax your armpits

You can easily wax your armpits. Before you start, it is important that the hair you are trying to grow out is not too long. The best length is between half a centimeter and one centimeter. If the hair is too long this will be especially painful. Film wax removes even the shortest hair. So you don't have to worry about these not getting removed by the wax.

To begin with, there are various supplies and waxing systems that you can use to wax your armpits at home.

Armpits waxing step by step

1. Make sure your skin is oil-free : the skin must be clean, dry and possibly oil-free before you start. So there shouldn't be a layer of (your) body lotion or body oil on the skin. The wax is then less able to adhere to the hair.

2. Make sure the wax is at the right temperature: For the best result, it is important that the wax is at the right temperature. The wax must be 45 degrees hot after heating and look like liquid honey.

3. Apply wax: when the wax is at the right temperature, you can apply it. You do this with a wax spatula. Always make sure that you end up on a piece of skin with no hair. This will make it easier to remove the wax.

4. Removing the wax: After applying, you need to remove the wax. First check if the wax is hard and remove it by grabbing the end and pulling it off in one go. It is important that you tighten the skin. This way you will prevent a strong reaction and the result will be better.
