Do you think, celebrities do not get dark underarms?
If you think so, you are wrong. They also get dark armpits and use many remedies to whiten them. They use cosmetic products but with them they also follow many natural remedies.
Some popular natural ways to whiten dark underarms are listed below:
Lemon is the first thing that comes to mind whenever you want to remove anything dark from your skin! Nothing is as good a bleach as lemon is. Lemon is not only a natural cleanser (why else would restaurants use washing bowls with warm water having lemon wedges in them!) but also has anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties. Its acidic properties help extensively in lightening your skin along with exfoliating dead skin cells. So, why not use lemon for lightening your dark underarms?
Take a thick slice of lemon and rub your underarms daily before you go to have bath. Apply some moisturizer after bath as lemon also tends to make skin dry. You may also use lemon in different way, as told in the next point, to ensure it doesn’t dries up your skin.
Add a pinch or two of tumeric, honey or yogurt to lemon juice. This will give you something like a paste.
Apply this to your dark underarms and leave for about 10 minutes. Now wash off with water.
Potatoes are good natural bleaching agents. More so for those who have sensitive skin because lemon’s acidic nature can irritate their skin a lot. Potatoes, due to their mild acids do not irritate the skin.
Take a thin slice of potato and rub your underarms with it for about 5-10 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.
Alternatively, grate a potato and squeeze out the juice from the grated things. Apply this juice to your underarms with the help of your fingers or a cotton ball. Leave it for about 10 minutes and then wash off.
Use potatoes at least twice a day to see faster results which you can expect to see in seven days time with lightened skin under your arms.
While lemon works to bleach your skin, cucumber soothes the skin avoiding any itching or irritation.
Mix lime juice with cucumber juice and add a pinch of turmeric to it. Lemon bleaches and removes dead cells, cucumber provides cooling effect and turmeric prevents discoloration. It is actually an ayurvedic remedy- so easy that you can do it everyday without any hassle!
You can also simply cut roundels of cucumber and rub your underarms with it.
Or apply the pure juice of ccumber to your dark underarm. This can also lighten your skin there in few days.
