4 Home Remedies for Dark Underarms
Imagine your boyfriend’s or your friends horror when you lift up your arms and they see a dark patch on your underarms when the rest of you are shades lighter and also smooth. Dark underarms become a problem not only because they do not look too good when you are wearing sleeveless blouses but also because the darker they are the more they smell. Because the skin in your underarms is very sensitive and a lot of women either shave it or use hair removal creams with a lot of harsh chemicals, the skin there gets dark and also pretty bad to look at. Deodorants soon after shaving also do not help much. If you need your underarms to look as good as the rest of your body, you need to take special care and here are some home remedies that would help you do just that.
1. Rubbing lemon on your underarms
Lemons have natural bleaching qualities. They are also anti-microbial and when you rub them on your underarms, not only do they get bleached, but they also remain clean and fresh. The acidic nature of lemons is a great option to brighten up your underarms and if you stick to it regularly, you should have less of the dark patches soon.
2. Water and baking soda mix
A mixture of water and baking soda is also a great home remedy for dark underarms. Take the mix and apply it thoroughly on your underarms. Leave the mix on for a while and scrub it off to get lighter underarms. As with the lemon, you will have to stick with this practice for a while to see better results.
