Dark underarms are a bane to a see. These are usually the side-effects when one has done their fair amount of shaving off their underarm hair or due to the usage of certain deodorants. Whichever the cause may be, it’s off-putting to have dark armpits that stick out whenever you raise your arms.
Not to worry, there are some natural ways to solving the dark problems.
– Lemon. Lemon has been known to be one of the natural bleachers that nature has to offer. You’ll need to have at least a wedge of lemon and rub it on the dark area. Let it sit for a minimum of 10 minutes and then thoroughly wash your underarms. Since the acidity of lemon is quite strong, it’ll easily dry your skin. Have a moisturizer at hand once you’ve dried your underarms from this treat.
– Orange Peel. Now you’ll have something to do with the peels from your oranges! Since orange is from the same family that lemon is, it’s no surprise that this tangy fruit also has bleaching properties. It’s a good idea to have the peel dry and powdered before use; once you’ve done so, mix it with some milk and rose water. Rub the concoction on the dark spots and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash thoroughly with cool water; do this thrice a week.
– Coconut oil. It’s been said that coconut oil has a lot of Vitamin E which is commercially used to lighten skin. Massage some coconut oil on your underarms for a good 15 minutes and then rinse with soap and water. You can do this twice every day. Additionally, coconut oil is a good natural deodorant thus you can ditch your chemically-crafted deodorant for a much healthier approach to taking care of your underarms.
