Dark armpits can be such a bother. Having dark patches under our arms can’t be any fun especially when it makes wearing our favourite sleeveless clothes impossible.
You can lighten dark armpits but the first step is to understand what causes them. The following factors can contribute to darkening of the armpits.
Friction From Tight Clothes
So try as much as possible to wear more loose fitting clothes.
Accumulation Of Dead Skin Cells
Be sure to exfoliate the armpits once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin.
Chemical Deodorants And antiperspirants
Change your brand of deodorant or antiperspirant to more natural ones that are alcohol free.
Elevated insulin levels could also cause darkening under the arms.
The following home remedies will effectively lighten dark armpits with consistent use.
Olive Oil To Lighten Dark Armpits
Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with three tablespoons of sugar. Wet the armpit and scrub gently with the mixture. The olive oil will greatly moisturize the skin while the sugar will aid in removing dead skin cells.
2. Rosewater For Dark Armpits
Rosewater has amazing benefits for skin which include moisturizing and brightening to help lighten dark armpits. To use, make a paste of rose water and baking soda and apply to freshly cleaned armpits. Leave on for 10 mins and rinse with cold water.
Remember, for each of these remedies consistency is key.
