Continue reading to explore the perks of armpit waxing and learn how to wax armpits to achieve smooth underarms, step-by-step.

Get Long-Lasting Smoothness

Every time you wax, you reveal softer, smoother skin, and with consistent waxing, hair grows back slower and thinner. Stick to your armpit wax schedule for long-lasting results and enjoy the benefits of smooth skin!

From Rough to Stunning

Light exfoliation is just one of the pleasant perks of armpit waxing. By adhering to the top layer of skin, armpit wax removes dead cells, unveiling a softer layer underneath.

Reduce The Risk Of Ingrown Hairs

Say “NO” to pesky ingrown hairs! These little troublemakers can irritate your skin and cause tiny, swollen bumps that may hurt. Armpit waxing comes to the rescue by yanking out hair from the root, preventing those annoying ingrown hair surprises.

Techniques for Smooth Underarms

Underarm hair can be unpredictable, growing in all directions, but don't worry—Veet®'s got you covered with some helpful tips, tricks, and techniques to simplify your armpit waxing routine and keep you smooth this summer.

If you have sensitive skin, try Veet® PURE, Wax Strips for Legs & Body, Sensitive Skin*. The hypoallergenic formula is specially designed to remove hair from the root, leaving your skin feeling smooth.

Before You Wax

For effective waxing, make sure your armpit hair is about a quarter-inch long. Shorter hair won't stick well to the wax, causing skin irritation, while longer hair can be more painful to remove.

Got short hair? No problem! Veet® Professional Wax Strips* are effective on hairs as short as 1.5mm.

Remember to keep it clean! Shower and remove any deodorant before an armpit wax.

Step-by-Step: How to Wax Armpits*


  • Lift your arm above your head to tighten your skin.
  • Follow the direction of the hair growth and place the strip with the Veet® EasyGrip™ tab pointing down towards the chest.

  • Keep your arm up to stretch the skin, rub the strip a few times and then remove it as fast as you can against the direction of hair growth, upwards towards the elbow.
  • Repeat for the upper half of your underarm with the Veet EasyGrip™ tab facing upward.

After your armpit wax, pamper your skin with Veet wipes, avoid heat from hot showers to intense workouts, and hold off on deodorant for 24 hours post-waxing. After the initial 24 hours, lightly exfoliate with a cotton washcloth once, then continue this routine two to three times a week. Keep your skin moisturized daily for smooth results.
