Summer is inexorably approaching. Every day it gets hotter (at least here in Valencia) and one of the doubts that many men ask themselves every summer appears, Do I shave my armpits? We usually do it for two reasons, or to avoid the unpleasant sweat stain in the armpit or simply for aesthetics. The answer to this question depends on our bodily characteristics.
If in your case you are one of those who you expel industrial amounts of sweat with the slightest effort, waxing is not the best option. Because the hair acts as a barrier and manages to retain sweat. In this case, it is recommended only trim the hair in this area. If the problem is excessive, there are solutions that go further. One possible solution is botox injection to block the nerve endings that create sweat.
If, on the contrary, you are one of those who does not sweat too much, but the stench is unbearable, it is highly recommended to wax and throughout the year, not just in summer. You will notice that you sweat a little more, but that the body odor is reduced considerably. Also, the first time you have to admit that it is very painful, but the following is not so painful, as long as you don't let the hair grow too much in the area.
Finally, if you are one of the lucky ones they neither sweat too much nor do their sweat smell too strong, congratulations, you can do whatever you like. If you decide not to wax at least trim them, aesthetically it is appreciated.
