How to shave your armpits
Follow our step by step process on how to shave your armpits.
- a razor
- soap/shaving foam

Position your arm straight up and over your head. Rest your forearm on your head if it feels more comfortable, or let your hand rest on your shoulder blade.
Face a mirror for a better view. Ensure that you have as flat a surface as possible.
Apply shaving foam to the armpit. Alternatively, rub soap between your wet hands to create a lather and apply to the area for shaving.
Rinse the razor under running warm water. Ensure it’s clean, rust-free and safe before you use it.
Using a downward motion, apply constant firm but gentle pressure to the shaving area.
Rinse the razor under water to remove hair and repeat until you have shaved each area.
Rinse your armpit area warm water to remove shaving foam or soap.
Dry your armpit with a towel.
Repeat steps 1 to 7 for your other armpit.
