Do you often shrug off the idea of wearing your favorite sleeveless top due to fear of your dark armpits? Having dark underarms are becoming a common problem due to factors like pollution, hair growth, hyper pigmentation and chemical reactions of cosmetics and perfumes. In addition, excessive sweating, dead skin and infections can also lead to the darkening of one’s underarms. However, this is a problem which can be eliminated and cured through home made methods which in turn would help in restoring back of your confidence and self-esteem.
Lemon has a natural healing power as it can help in the removal of dead cells from the skin thereby providing it with a fresh and a refreshing look. Thus, one should rub lemon slices on the armpits to reduce their dark color. Similarly, one should use alum powder in place of deodorants as perfumes and deodorants contain chemicals which might react with the skin leading to the formation of dark underarms.
The safer idea is to use anti-fungal powder in place of anti-perspirants to prevent the problem of dark underarms. Applying a paste of sandalwood and rose water on the armpits for 15 minutes before washing it off with cold water can help in the reduction of darkness and infection from one’s underarms. Use of coconut oil or vitamin E oil on the armpits can also be of a great help in treating this problem.
Another effective remedy to get rid of dark underarms is to apply a paste made from 1 tsp curd, 1 tsp gram flour, pinch of turmeric and 1 tsp milk. In addition, one can take juice of cucumber and mix it with turmeric powder and lime juice. Applying this mixture for about half an hour helps in getting rid of dark underarms. By following some natural and home made methods, one can ward off the hesitation and shame associated with having unhealthy underarms. When you’ll have a healthy skin, you can feel free to wear any clothes of your choice without any worries and hesitation.
