3 DIY Remedies to Get Rid of Dark Underarms


Are your dark under-arms the reason why those sexy off-shoulder dresses and spaghetti tops just lying unused in your wardrobe? Call it the story of many ladies' life, but dark underarms can be very embarrassing. With constant use of chemical clad sprays and hair-removal creams, the skin becomes many tones darker than your original colour and takes all your confidence away.

But thankfully, winters are around the corner and you can keep your underarms covered. Ladies, make use of the season to lighten your underarms with these DIY remedies and rock those off-shoulder dresses in the summer of 2016.

1. Cucumber-Lemon-Turmeric
Crush half a cucumber and extract its juice in a bowl. Add the juice of half lemon to it and half tea-spoon of turmeric (haldi). Mix all the ingredients well and apply on the underarm area. Leave it to dry for about 15-20 minutes and wash it off with a mild body-wash or soap.

2. Honey-Lemon-Sugar Scrub
Dark underarms are a result of dead skin cells accumulated in the layer beneath your skin and nothing can work better than a good home-made scrub. Take 1 teaspoon of honey(for moisturization) and add the juice of one lemon(for bleaching) to it. Add some brown/white sugar (for exfoliation) and scrub the mixture in circular motions on your underarms every twice a week. If you use razor to remove your under arm hair, use this scrub before you shave.

3. Potato Juice
Grate a medium sized potato and with the help of a sieve or muslin cloth, extract its juice and apply it on the dark under arm area for 10-15 minutes daily. If you are too lazy, you could also rub a thin potato slice directly on the skin.
