Beauty Tips on Whitening Dark Underarm

One of the many problems women are facing is the discolored underams or dark underams due to hair growth, plucking or whatsoever is causing it. Just imagine wearing sleeveless outfits and you know that you have problem with underams discloration. Low self esteem is one of the damage this problem caused.

According to one doctor, sweat mixed with alum chloride, the active ingredient in most deodorants, can stain skin and your clothes. Using deodorants will prevent body odor all right, but the flipside is that it can also cause darkening of the skin.

There are actually dermatological ways to solve the problem but it’s just a bit pricey and not everyone can afford the treatment. Do we just stay in one corner then and forever bring the anxiety of dark underams? No way!

Here are some practical tips to solve the problem

For those of us who are on a tight budget and can’t afford these expensive procedures, there are several over-the-counter products that can whiten the skin, with tons of applications and patience required. Look for ingredients such as melawhite and other natural extracts like licorice, grapeseed, and Vitamin C. These natural extracts, when regularly used, can whiten the underarms. But before heading to the drugstores, make sure you consult your dermatologist for adequate advice regarding underarm therapy.

It is best that you wax your underarms regularly. Underarms generally look dark due to thick hair under the skin, caused by shaving. Waxing removes hair from the root, so there is no hair under the skin, and the underarms look clean. Also, regular waxing reduces hair growth over a period of time. How long it takes differs from person to person. Often, as soon as you wax for the first time after shaving for a long time, your underarms look much cleaner and lighter. This is because the hair is a lot thicker, so the wax gets a good grip and pulls it all out. There are chances your armpits may bleed very slightly, so don’t get unduly worried if this happens.

Rub lemon slices on your armpits. Use alum powder instead of deodorants. After a shower rub some baking soda on your armpits. Apply vitamin E oil on your armpits. Wash your armpits with coconut oil. Apply a paste of 1 tbsp. curd, 1 tsp. gram flour, pinch of turmeric and 1 tsp. milk on your underarms. Rinse with cold water when it dries. Apply paste of rose water and sandalwood powder on your underarms. Make a paste using 1 tsp of lime juice, 1 tsp of cucumber juice and a pinch of turmeric powder. Apply it on your armpits and rinse after 20 minutes.

You may want to exfoliate – You should exfoliate all over to get rid of dead skin cells 2-4 times a week. It would be great to use pumice stone. If exfoliating does not work , talk to dermatologist to get a script for glycolic acid which would be stronger than OTC ones. Bliss may have one or Freeze 24/7 which is sold at Bath and Body Works. I am not sure how fast you are supposed to see results though. I did read that you should not use hair remover cream in these areas as those can cause darkness.
