What is the best way to get rid of dark underarms using homemade remedies?

Dark underarms are usually because of wrong techniques of hair removal. People who shave their underarms usually have dark skin on their underarms. If you use blades to get rid of the hair in your underarms, then you should reconsider this. You can try using some creams to remove the hair. However, you need to take care to ensure that you only buy good quality hair removing creams since substandard creams can leave your skin looking dark and rough. Some beauty professionals recommend waxing as the most effective method, one that has the fewest side effects. If you are going to try waxing to remove the hair, you should take care to consult a professional who can help you do it properly.

If you wear sleeveless clothes then you should take care to ensure that they are not very tight. When you wear tight clothes the sleeves chafe against your skin.
