Hi everyone. We would like to share tips on how to lighten dark underarms.
In this article, you’ll learn both economical home-based and professional ways to restore your underarm confidence and be free!
1) Apply antibacterial remedy. In this case, I recommend to rub a slice of lemon or lime on the dark area. The acidic, anti bacterial properties in lemon remove dead skin cells, lighten the skin and reduce bacteria that cause body odour. Rinse thoroughly. Repeat 2-3 times weekly.
2) Scrub to remove dead skin cells. There are many ingredients we can use to gently exfoliate the underarms.
a) Mix honey (for calming and soothing), lime (to lighten the skin) and sugar (for exfoliation). Scrub gently. Use twice weekly.
b) Mix baking soda with water. Make a thick paste to use as a scrub. After scrubbing, rinsing and drying the area, you can apply a dusting of baking powder to the skin to give it a lighter appearance.
3) Stop using deodorants and antiperspirants that contain irritating ingredients. The strong antiperspirant chemicals of deodorants often darken underarms by an inflammatory response. Very few people actually have a problem with body odour and most do not need the widely advertised deodorants. You can opt for natural deodorants like coconut oil or natural mineral salt deodorant.
4) Stop shaving. Shaving causes irritation due to friction and results in underarm discolouration. Waxing is one of the best ways of removing underarm hair as the hair grows FINER, SPARSER and SLOWER. Waxing removes dead skin cells, hence brighten the skin.
At Tini’s spa, underarm waxing is one of the most sought after service as it is affordable, only RM40/ session, and time-saving too, as fast as 15 minutes. Brides-to-be and pengantin love this service to prepare for the wedding day!
