Quite a number of people have at some point noticed that their underarm area has considerably darkened and this has been a major cause of concern. Due to this reason some have become so uncomfortable that they can hardly wear sleeveless clothes outside their houses or even go the beach or poolside. Some have even begun to worry thinking it is a result of some kind of medical condition, well you should worry so much, it is not. Dark underarms could be a result of frequent shaving, use of hair removal creams, use of alcohol based deodorants or antiperspirants, excessive sweating, etc.

There are several natural ways of lightening up your underarm area and guess what, they are all easily accessible. Let’s take a look:


This very foodstuff possesses some mild acidic traits and as such is a very potent bleaching agent. Unlike other bleaching agents it work mildly on the skin and thus hardly causes skin irritation. To achieve lightening of the area, simply cut a slice of potato and gently rub over the area or grate the potato and use the juice over the area. Rinse off after 15 minutes and dab dry, do this twice a day for as long as you need to.


This foodstuff which is recognized worldwide with several natural remedy abilities also possesses natural bleaching properties. Using it over the skin helps to restore luster to darkened or discolored skin. You can rub a slice of the cucumber over the affected area or grate it and use the juice. Allow it to dry up and wash off after 10 minutes, do this twice daily till you are satisfied.


Everyone knows the bleaching ability of lemon so I really do not need to emphasize that. Simply rub the lemon wedge on the skin and allow to dry or use the juice on the area, leave for 10 minutes and wash thoroughly. Do this 3 to 5 times a week.

I believe this has been helpful, now you can wear what you feel like, no more dark underarms.
