Dark underarms can be a cause of embarrassment and this can surely stop you from wearing those favourite sleeveless top of yours. When in the party, everyone says “Hands up in the air”, you can’t cause of your patchy little underarms. But if there is a problem, there is a solution too! We bring to you 5 simple ways to deal with dark and patchy underarms and that too with natural ingredients! Watch out.
Potatoes not only taste yummy but also are equally beneficial for the skin. They contain Vitamin A, Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C in them which naturally bleach the area revealing a more natural looking and healthy underarms skin. And if you feel your underarms are too dark, mix lemon and potato juice and apply to that area.
Lemon is an excellent natural bleaching agent that helps to whiten and lighten skin very effectively. You can just rub a lemon slice under your arms or simply apply lemon juice with a cotton ball. The Vitamin C and acidic properties present in lemon will help to make the skin lighter by removing dark spots.
Cucumber is an excellent cooling agent that helps to remove tan and dark spots as well. You can apply cucumber paste or even cucumber juice to the dark armpit area and keep it on for 20 minutes. This will help to heal the area and will make it even and soft as well.
Baking Soda, though sounds weird to many of us is an excellent agent that helps to exfoliate skin as well as deodorise the area. Mild exfoliation is needed in that area as the accumulation of dead cells leads to uneven skin tone. Baking soda helps to make the area even with smoother skin.
