Shaving - there are a number of faux pas that can be committed when shaving, and all of them will undoubtedly lead to itchy armpits and razor rash, so here are some easy changes you can make to your shaving routine to combat itchy armpits:
- Don't use a razor for more than 7 uses, as the blades become dull causing you to go over the same area more times.
- Never dry shave - your skin likes to be moisturised so running a sharp object over it's armpits when it's not is a bad idea. Make sure you shave while in the shower or bath as the warm water softens the hair follicles and makes it easier to shave while also keeping your skin hydrated and happy.
- Use cream specially designed for shaving - it's carefully created to nourish your armpits and get the job done in the most caring way.
- Don't shave your armpits too often - your skin needs time to recover, especially if you have itchy armpits so continuing to shave will only continue to irritate your skin.
