Frequently Asked Questions
A: Results differ from person to person. You may have thicker or darker hair than them, or more sensitive skin. Stop shaving, and start waxing your underarms. Try and stick to the same person for waxing, and make sure she pulls the hair in one direction. The darkness is probably caused by shaving, while the boils could be caused by improper waxing. Also, if you wax regularly the hair growth will lessen and then the pimples will stop forming.
Q: Why does shaving cause the darkening of underarms?
A: Shaving causes hair to grow back thicker and darker, and this dark hair is often visible under transparent, light skin - which is what makes the skin look darker. Also, waxing removes dead skin, while shaving does not do the same. If you shave underarms regularly, you may want to scrub your underarm area with a pumice stone on a daily basis. This should help combat darkness to an extent.
