For those that like the feel of smooth, hairless arms, shaving will be beneficial. Because hair holds onto moisture, shaving your armpits may result in less sweating, or at least less noticeable sweating (sweat rings on your shirt sleeves, for example). Shaving may also cut down on the odor associated with sweat.


Is it more hygienic to shave armpits?

Underarm Hair And Hygiene.


The odor from sweat is caused by bacteria and the bacteria can multiply in the damp area of armpit hair – shavingthe armpits results in less space for bacteria to breed. And increased effectiveness from your natural anti-perspirant deodorant products.


Do hairy armpits smell worse than shaved ones?


They found that the absence of hair optimizes cleansing and makes one's daily hygiene more effective in reducing body odor. Similarly, a 2012 study published in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology states that the odor of shaved armpits (in men) was rated more attractive than hairy armpits.

Does shaving armpits reduce smell?

Underarm sweat has a direct link to body odor (BO) since it's the result of bacteria breaking sweat down. When you remove hair under the armpits, it reduces trapped odor. A 2016 study involving men found that removing armpit hair by shaving significantly reduced axillary odor for the following 24 hours.
