‘Tis the season of exposed underarms! Summer is here and sleeves are getting shorter and shorter. It’s only natural to begin exposing more skin as the weather gets hotter. Dark underarms can become a real problem when deciding whether to wear that cute new tube top or hide your underarms in sleeved shirts. This will help you ditch the embarrassment of that darkened skin and confidently raise your arms to celebrate good times this summer!
Sometimes, simply avoiding some bad habits that cause dark underarms can help to alleviate the problem over time. So here are some problems and solutions you should start with.
Razors can cause irritation and skin darkening overtime. Try waxing or plucking instead! This will instantly make the armpits appear smoother and clearer.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! (everywhere). A build-up of dead skin makes this area appear rougher and darker.
Seems counter-intuitive, I know. But the ingredients in hygiene products don’t always react well on the skin. Irritation of any kind can cause darkening.
