When I shave my armpits, little hairs are left.
They’re not long enough to shave and leave little black spots. How do I get rid of them?
Before you let armpit stubble make you feel like an ape girl, realize that every chica has the same issue.
Razors trim the hair to the skin, leaving tiny sprigs. If you have dark hair and light skin, the hairs left behind show up even more. But don’t go bananas over it. It’s no big deal, assures Dr. Paul Cabiran, a dermatologist at the Ochsner Clinic in Baton Rouge, La.
One way to avoid stubble is to wax your hairy areas—but that hurts! The best option? Get down with a daily hair removal ritual, using a good razor and some heavy shaving cream, when you shower. Or, you could always opt to go au natural.
Underarm hair is totally normal. You’re only human!
