In brief: Yes

be careful not to occlude sweat glands with too much waxy deodorants or can get pimples/boils, also don't shave too close since if haishaft is under skin may have trouble growing out thru usual hole and cause inflammation and thus boils, always shower/bath daily and scrub with washcloth/soap/water so as to remove any oils which can occlude pores thus causing pimples.
, lotions are less greasy
