Hello everyone! I'm new here and I was hoping I could get some help. I'm a 22 year old female and I have always been insecure about my underarms. I always used to shave them but noone taught me how to do it when I was younger, how it's possible to cut yourself, etc. So I happened to cut myself about two times on each underarm years ago. My underarms have these very deep lines etched into the skin... I wonder if it's because of that?
My second question, and the issue I currently face is that I waxed my underarms a few days ago.... I started waxing them a few months ago (with wax strips), I had never waxed them before. I saw a few tutorials and decided to do it. I used wax strips. The first time was great cuz my skin was so smooth and all the hair came off. I was so happy and I felt more confident about them. The pictures on top are the ones I took on that day. However, a few days ago, I decided to wax it again. The waxing went (again, I used wax strips) just fine. All the hair came off easily and I felt no pain whatsoever when doing it (other than the usual hair-pulling pain of waxing ofc). Other than that, there was no pain. But when I was done and went out, I felt a burning sensation in my pits. It grew and for 2 days or so they felt sore. The skin was rough and it felt like it had sort of come off. Today when I was taking a shower I noticed that they have become noticeably darker (a dark brown, blackish type of colour). I got so upset. I had finally gained confidence just a few months ago when I waxed them and now they're ruined. I feel like crying. I don't know why this happened. I put oil on it. The bottom pictures are the ones I took now, they look shiny cuz of the oil I applied.
I hate this. I only wanted smooth, flawless underarms and I had them (except the deep lines), but now they're ruined. I hate how everything bad happens to me. What can I do to fix this? Can it be fixed? Please, please help me.
