Under Arm Dark: How to make the underarms fair using only home remedies?

There are several effective remedies for darkened underarms that you can use. However, it is important that you first figure out the cause for this discoloration. Darkened underarms are often caused by hair removal techniques like shaving or the usage of hair removal creams.

When you shave your hair, only the hair above the surface of your skin is sliced off and the remaining portion of the strand still remains under the skin. These strands are dark in color and as they grow and come close to the surface of the skin, they cause a shadow effect which makes the entire area look darker. In addition to this, using incorrect shaving methods that irritate the skin can also result in darkening after an extended period of time. If you must shave, make sure that you always shave in the same direction as the hair growth and not in the opposite direction. You should also make sure that you moisturize your skin well before you shave as this will ensure that the blade glides effortlessly over your skin. It is also important that you use a sharp blade when shaving as a blunt blade can cause your skin to darken.

Hair removal creams, on the other hand, dissolve the strand of hair right from deep within the skin. However, these creams contain harsh chemicals that will affect your skin if you use them regularly. If you must use these creams, make sure that you use a moisturizer before you apply the cream. In addition to this, after you have removed the cream, wash your underarms with warm water. You can also use a gentle scrub to exfoliate your skin once you are done with your cream or use a soothing pack. Use a pack made out of fuller's earth as it will help to absorb any chemicals from the cream that may be remaining on your skin.

To lighten your underarms, use a scrub made out of honey, lemon juice and lightly ground walnuts or peanuts. The honey will help to nourish your skin while the nuts will helps to provide your skin with essential oils and nutrients. Lemon juice is a mild bleach and will help to lighten the discolored skin. This is a gentle scrub that can be used every alternate day, when you shower.

You can also blend a raw potato and apply the juice to your underarms before you go to bed. Raw potato juice has bleaching properties and helps to eliminate any darkened blemishes. In future, it would be best if you waxed your underarms as this method gets rid of the hair from their roots and does not cause discoloration.
