Dark underarms can be a little overwhelming sometimes and as far as we have read, they can also be a sign of bad grooming/bad hygiene. However, in no way we are saying that this is not common. Underarm darkening is a common skin concern amongst most of the women out there.  Especially girls who like wearing strappy tops, sleeveless or tube tops.


So, exactly what causes your underarms to darken, you'd wonder? Well, there could be multiple reasons like excessive sweating, alcohol-infused deodorants, over-use of shaving creams or multiple hair removal techniques and accumulation of dead skin cells can cause the skin in the armpits to turn darker.

This awkward skin situation is quite frustrating especially during the summers which we didn't get to enjoy this year due to the pandemic. Hoping that all will be well by next year, we want you to flaunt the cute swimsuits and tank tops you have bought for yourself. And, yes it's pretty frustrating to raise your arms and have people stare at your armpits but no we are not gonna let you give up on this!

You'll be ecstatic to know that there is a remedy which could help you lighten your underarms instantly, in just three easy steps. Follow the three-step guide mentioned below and we bet you'll notice how the dark skin in your underarms will go a shade lighter, each time you apply the mixture.

Step 1: Take three tablespoons each of rock salt, white vinegar and baking soda and mix it with six tablespoons of hot water.

Step 2: Apply this paste to cleansed underarms and let it sit for around 20 minutes.

Step3: Once the mixture dries up, take a warm damp cloth and wipe it off. You will notice visibly fairer armpits. Repeat this process at least once a week so that your skin doesn't go back to the original colour.
