Dark armpits are caused by repeated shaving, dead skin buildup and genetics. Shaving cuts the hairs off the skin surface but leaves roots. If armpit hair is even slightly darker than skin color, dark stains will appear. Dead skin cells are equally bad – they buildup in the armpit skin creases and grooves and result in unflattering dark spots. And last but not the least – genetics. Some skin will naturally accumulate more pigment in the underarms leading to skin darkening. Bottom line, no matter what the cause, dark armpits is a major pit peeve of women everywhere. But despair not – you can eliminate dark armpits by mixing few common household items:
1 teaspoon Vaseline
1 teaspoon apple juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix all ingredients to a pasty consistency then apply a generous dab under each armpit and let dry. Once dried wash the area, pats dry and dust over with baby powder. Repeat every day. In few weeks dark skin problem will be gone.
Store the ready mixture in the fridge for up to 3 weeks, before discarding.
