I hate shaving. I feel the hair the next day. I bought an epilator and epilated(?) my armpits and it hurt so much. I decided to just wax it myself and I love it so much more than the other two options. My armpits used to be so dark. This is going to sound disgusting but when I waxed it took some of the darkness away like I saw some of the darkness on the paper. Now my armpits are almost the same color as my skin. Waxing really helped with my super dark armpits. My armpit hair used to be so thick, it had like 2 strands of hair at once and now it is much thinner. When summer comes, I am going to wax my legs.
