How can I make my underarms look smooth and healthy looking?

When I shave them they look like leathery looking I could be exaggerating a little but they do not look smooth.
I hate it bc I can not raise my arms p in the air unless I have sleeves on :/

  • My dd complains about the same thing. She says that her underarms have a "slightly greenish tint" to them and has looked up everything imaginable on the internet relating to this. She wants to have laser hair removal. Some info said that some deodorants cause this slight color change, like a reaction. Yet she can't go without, guess how many different deodorants I have purchased that didn't make a difference, Lol. Ugh.
    I just don't worry about mine as long as they are shaved....we are never going to look like we just stepped out of an airbrushed magazine page, LOL....but, I guess try if we must.

  • Exfoliating may help. I think dove has a deodorant out that's supposed to improve the appearance of under arms but I've never tried it. Myabe google reviews on it...

  • I wax I know that sounds weird but it is getting to where the hairs don't grow back as fast and not as many :)
