How long can you go without shaving your armpits?

I can only go a day or two...after that I just get paranoid O.O

Didja know that if you don't use soap directly on your armpits, they won't smell? Apparently using soap directly on them takes away all the bacteria, and then the bacteria over-produce themselves to make up for the loss. That's what causes your pits to stink!

  • I got a rash the last time I shaved. I don't know why, so I haven't shaved in 10 days...Eeep! I have had to wash twice as often so I don't stink.
    I wanna shave :(

  • That must be why I don't have armpit stink because I always just run them under the water when shaving, then wash them later with my loofa. i thought i was weird for not using soap on them! lol but to answer your question i can go about 3 days and then they'll get stubbly.

  • What are you supposed to use if you don't use soap? The razor just sticks to the skin if there's no lather there? I can be buying shaving cream all the time, I shave my pits everyday since the hair started growing. It's gross to see stubble there. My friend wore a sleeveless dress on her wedding, and didn't even bother to shave her armpits. YUCK!!!

  • when ever i shower... so about every 2 days or so sometimes longer if i feel lazy. Usually i'm pretty anal retentive about that cause i wear tank tops a lot but since becoming prego i've become soooo lax on it it's not funny.
