Causes and immediate solutions to dark underarms. 

Dark underarms are disappointing and depressing, most especially to the times that some of us had to wear sleeveless clothes and it is pretty much shaming to put our hands up in the air only for other people to see darkness within—like, literally.

    THREE MAIN REASONS FOR DARK UNDERARMS:

1.    HARSH SCRUBBING
While loofah or bath sponges and towels help our skins exfoliate and achieve a smoother look by removing dead skin cells, it is not much recommended especially on the underarms. Scrubbing the skin on our underarms can further worsen its discoloration.

2.    HAIR PLUCKING
Plucking the hair on our underarms using tweezers can add up to its further darkening. Not only that, it makes your underarms look chicken-skin because of the enlarged pores which is equally dangerous and prone to infections.

3.    DEODORANT
Deodorants contain chemicals and formulations which irritate the skin of our underarms and contribute to its darkening.



    HOW DO WE PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR IT?

 Use soft towels for skin exfoliation instead of harsh loofahs or towels.

 Use mild soaps and cleansers. Skin on the underarm is equally sensitive as our under-eyes, elbows    and knees.
 Use creams or lotions to moisturize our underarms after scrubbing.
  Use honey to soften the underarms as well. It has an anti-inflammatory effect which reduces the risk of skin infections.
  Use alcohol-free deodorants. These can be bought on departments stores or drugstores.



Try and apply these simple solutions and start to see a brighter future for your underarms!
