Armpit and leg hair

Do you normally remove your kilikili and leg hair?

How? Shave? Pluck? Wax? Etc?
How about sa legs? Regularly ba?

I have been shaving my armpit hair, tapos napapansin ko na umiitim yung balat ko sa kili kili? Is this normal? May way ba to avoid this? I’m super new sa body care :frowning: I’d really like to learn now :pray: salamat po!

I shave my hair and so far di naman umiitim. Do you use shaving cream?

Armpits and lower leg - pinalaser ko siya 2017, wala ng tumutubo a year later… tapos maintain once every six months
Upper leg - shave parin. La ng budget :embarasslaff:

Laser sa armpits, legs–sometimes shave pero minsan hinahayaan ko lang.

I did IPL for armpits. Had regular monthly sessions for about a year in 2012. It stopped growing hair since then. Kung meron man, very fine na parang balahibo ng pusa.
:embarasslaff:

Never shaved my legs. I don’t have hair there.

I wax. Underarm regularly. Lower legs pag kailangan Lang mag shorts or dress.

Sabe nila yung friction daw kasi yun ng razor sa skin kaya mas reco nila waxing. Pero di ko sure kung totoo yun

I epilate legs, arms, and armpit.

Epilate underarms every 2 weeks, epilate arms and armpit once a month.

Face naman is threading, pero mga once every 2 months.

No leg hair. For armpits, wax! But I was forced to shave ngayong ECQ :laughing:

For underarms, nagpa diode laser ako 4 yrs ago yata. Then regular booster na lang every 6 months.

For legs, okay nako sa veet every other month.

I had my armpit hair lasered off back in…2010 ata yun? Derma na may clinic now sa may Padre Faura and sa Mckinley. And then I continued with laser removal treatments sa Japan for a year. Since then mejo super fine hair, if any, nalang tumutubo.

Legs, I shave. :slight_smile:

Shave. Pero, yeah, medyo umitim nga ang kilikili ko kaka-shave. :disappointed:

Underarms, wax. Sabay na sa Brazilian and upper lip hair removal every 4-6 weeks. Suki ako ng Wax Bar sa Malingap.

Legs - never needed to deal with hair there. May strays na isa or dalawa na visible every few months, but I just pluck them out with my fingers.

Used to wax underarm before (since I started working) but started doing laser last year. I have PCOS so there is still a portion na may hair. But good results can be seen in larger area of the underarm

Thankfully, my legs are fine despite having PCOS.

Ang hirap maging babae. :sweat_smile:

Wait ngayon ko lang to narealize, is my legs hairy because of PCOS???

No. Ngayon ko lang na-realize na ang low maintenance ko pala :sweat_smile: :laughing:
I only shave my pits kapag magsusuot ng sleeveless and when I know wouldn’t be in an airconditioned environment.

Leg hair, I only shaved them somehow regularly when I was in high school and early years in college (nako-conscious ako kasi balbon, pati yung balbon ko sa arms I shaved in high school). Eventually tinamad na ko. I also found it unfair kasi wala naman expectation sa mga lalaki na mag-shave sila e. Then I realized na wala naman pake mga tao kung may hair yung legs ko or wala. I usually get compliments na makinis legs ko kahit na di ako nagshe-shave (siguro dahil may certain fascination din mga pinoy sa mapuputi?).

Moisturize after shaving! No, actually, moisturize the underarm skin every night :smile: Sunflower oil is effective! :sunflower: tagging @mikuri

Nung college ako, I “announced” to my blockmates na una kong gagawin sa sweldo ko is ipa-IPL kili kili ko :rotfl: nagawa ko naman sa first 2yrs ng pagwowork ko, priority ko talaga sya. :laugh:

Sa legs, since di naman halata, I tend to only shave pag may lakad sa beach but on a regular day na nakashorts ako outside, deadma.

Did laser for both my legs and armpits (among others) way back 2010 sa Skin Station. Never pa ako nagpabooster ever since. And I must say, one of the best gifts/investments I have given myself. Saves me time, skin is smooth and laking tipid! I spent 10k sa legs and 5k sa armpits. 7-9 sessions each area pero mga 6th session, wala na masyadong hair. When I used to wax, average monthly expenses ko is like around 1k x 12 months = P12k. Nakatipid na ako ng mga bongga dahil nag-ROI na ako after 1.5 years. And so simula 2nd half of year 2 and up to present, nakatipid na ako ng 12k x 8 years = 96k. hehehe. Mabigat lang sa bulsa dahil bayad agad pero worth it naman.

:wave: I highly recommend doing the laser diode thing (esp for the pits). Worth it sya, I swear! Madalas din naman ang promos (pwede bang mag-drop ng clinic name dito? Basta it starts with an ‘S’ and ends with station). You will be virtually hairless after 7-8 sessions - wala ka nang aalalahanin ses! It also helped my kili-kili get over the trauma of the past (nagka-PTSD sya from plucking and shaving). :joy:

Nakakaengganyo naman magpalaser ng kilikili. :lol:

Wax sa lower leg pero sobrang dalang. Sa kilikili minsan lang din.
