DARK UNDER ARMS.
Before i started my brand ,A particular deodorant was giving me reactions and making my under arms darker .It was a very good brand though…I thought about a hack i could do cos i was itching already..
Boom ,a thought came !
I started using either almond oil, olive oil or coconut oil first to massage my underarms first before applying deodorant then it stopped …
I also exfoliate my armpit using raw powdered milk and HSM body scrub once weekly and other body parts twice.. I pour into a plate and mix .
(very soon ,i will have my own home made vanilla infused deodorant after my research )~commercial Deodorants contain nitrium in them, which cause a change in the skin, invoking sweat allergies and so on. ..so i wanna stop using them soon.
Our herbal soap has been confirmed to also work on dark armpits ….
GENERAL CAUSES OF DARK UNDER ARMS
One explanation for this is that your skin is irritated from shaving and using deodorant just like my “deodorant” case … Darkened armpits can also be the result of a medical condition called “acanthosis nigricans”, which affects skin pigment and is often related to insulin resistance and diabetes..
HOME REMEDIES TO GET RID OF DARK ARMPITS..
1.HSM HERBAL SOAP :Apply soap paste into your underarms, wet with water and work into lather ..Massage for 5-10 minutes before bath …In few weeks ,you would notice a visible difference in appearance..The dark armpits will become visibly brighter.
2.CUCUMBER AND LEMON
Cucumber will help in lightening the dark armpits. You can mix a tablespoon of lemon juice in the four tablespoons of the cucumber juice. (Blend cucumber to get juice )
Apply this solution on the underarms for about 20 minutes and then wash it with warm water.
3. RAW TOMATO
Raw tomato is extremely effective in lightening the skin in the underarm area. It also helps reduce sweating which is a major cause of darkening of the area. Like lemon juice, tomato juice too consists of bleaching properties that naturally help in reducing discolouration.
How to apply: Daily, rub a slice of raw tomato in the underarms. Applying tomato juice overnight will also help.
It contains a chemical known as curcumin, which is an antioxidant and helps lighten the skin tone in the underarm area. Turmeric is considered as one of the most effective natural remedies for skin lightening.
How to apply: For 100 percent results, mix turmeric with lemon juice to make a paste. Apply it on the affected area for 12-15 minutes and rinse with water. Get instant results.
5. lime and baking soda
Baking soda is harmless and is used for teeth whitening…mix lime juice with a spoon of baking soda and massage your under arms.Try any of the remedies and be consistent for few weeks …Give me feedback on the one that works better …
