DIY- Treatment for Dark Underarms

I always feel conscious while wearing sleeveless clothes not only because I have flabby arms but also because I suffer from the problem of dark underarms....I don't have any shame in admitting this fact because most women go through the same problem.

Causes of dark underarms:


  1. Regular shaving...which leaves ingrown hair which makes skin appear dark
  2. Excessive perspiration
  3. Use of alcohol based deodorants directly on the underarm skin
  4. Hereditary problems
  5. post-pregnancy changes
  6. obesity
Now, I have been doing this treatment since past three weeks and I saw some positive changes in my underarm area...so, I thought of sharing this treatment with you..It is very easy and just takes 15 minutes of your time before shower

So, lets get started :


WHAT YOU NEED

1. 3-4 teaspoons of sugar
2. 1 teaspoon of turmeric
3. 1 Lemon

WHY

SUGAR: Exfoliates your underarms and removes dead skin cells which cause darkening

TURMERIC: It is antiseptic and fades away any scars and hyper-pigmentation that the underarm skin may have

LEMON: Its a popular skin lightening agent

STEP -1

Churn the sugar in the mixer lightly...you don't want it to completely transform into a powder...the granularity of the sugar should be maintained


STEP -2

Put the turmeric in the sugar 


STEP -3

Now add lemon juice in the mixture


The paste should look like this after mixing


Apply this mixture for 15-20 minutes on your underarm area and scrub off gently...then wash the area with lukewarm water 

you should apply it twice a week to get faster results..

I hope this post was helpful

    1. shaving is definitely not a good option...but waxing ruptures the thin skin of my underarm area...therefore I can't wax it

  7. That's a really awesome at home remedy for dark underarms. I will try it some day soon. Right now I am using a specific deodorant that is supposed to be just for brightening underarms, and I think it works pretty well.

I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated! Here is my web site

  17. How to whiten Dark underarms

    Dark underarms can also be due to a clinical situation that is known as acanthosis nigricans that is often related to insulin resistance, weight problems, hormonal disorders, positive medicines, and cancer.
