Our underarms are probably one of the many body areas women are especially self-conscious about.
Most of us aren’t comfortable wearing sleeveless blouses for fear of flaunting pits that may give off a little stink on a bad day. But here’s an interesting fact – while 96% of Asian women are concern about the appearance of underarms, 91% of them are treating it as their beauty asset.
According to a research conducted by Dove Malaysia, representatives say that most Malaysian women shave and pluck their underarm hair without realizing the damage cause by these grooming techniques. Shaving and plucking their underarms will cause irritation, leading to dark and damaged skin. The skin of the underarms are prone to pigmentation and skin damage due to its thin layer.
Here are some underarm hair removal alternatives to help you maintain soft and smooth underarms.

An epilator’s a good way to remove the hair around your underarms. It’s practically painless if the fuzz in your underarms are thinner, so you can breeze through it without having to squirm.
