Imagine getting married and wearing your beautiful white strapless gown. It should be the happiest day of your life but you can’t seem to move freely with your gown. Your underarms are making you feel self-conscious. Having dark underarms cause embarrassment to many women. Wearing the clothes you have always wanted, sleeveless and tube dresses, tank tops, and even swimwear becomes a burden to wear. Not because they are hard to handle, not because these clothes are expensive, but more because your movement becomes restricted. Why? Dark underarms are to blame. Movement becomes restricted as you become conscious about your underarms.
Look at what you are wearing
Tight fitting clothes often cause irritations in your underarms and thus cause armpit blackening. Clothes that are too tight in the armpit area brush and rub against the skin. This could be the cause of the dark color. Avoid synthetic fibers and opt for cotton materials as much as you can.
Scrub and rub your armpits every once in a while
While bathing you may opt to scrub your armpits with lemon peel powder to help make the shade lighter. Aside from this you may also rub your armpits with lemon slices. The acidity will help lighten them.
Look into your deodorant
There are deodorants that cause darkening of the armpits. Study your deodorants well. Look into its ingredients, try out small bottles or sticks first, and if you see a darkening discoloration, don’t be afraid to change deodorants. You may also use alum powder on your armpits instead of your deodorant.
