HOW TO LIGHTEN ARMPITS

Our armpits go through a lot like hair growth, hot wax, hair removal creams, sweat, deodorants and whatnot! All of these things lead to pigmentation and discoloration, which makes our armpit look dark and ugly. So following are the few home remedies that would help you to fight underarm discoloration and pigmentation:

  • CUCUMBER

     Ingredients:

  • Cucumber slice: 4

     STEPS

  1. Take a cucumber slice and rub it over the dark armpit in a circular motion.
  2. Keep rubbing it for 10 minutes.
  3. Rub 2 slices of cucumber one by one for 10 minutes, on each armpit.
  4. Then, rinse the armpit with normal water.

  3. There is no need to rinse the armpits after applying readymade aloe vera gel, but if you feel uneasy then rinse your armpits with normal water.
