Effective remedies to get rid of dark underarms

Simple ways to get rid of dark underarms

Frequent use of razors and deodorants can cause dark, ugly looking underarms that can cause you a lot of embarrassment. Here’s how to get rid of the darkness.


Milk and flour pack – Make a thick paste out of milk and white or wheat flour and apply a thick layer of it on your underarms. Let it dry off and rinse. This mixture helps exfoliate the dead skin off and the milk helps lighten the skin.

Coconut oil - Massage underarms for a few minutes with some warm coconut oil and leave it on for about half an hour. Go for a steam and then have a warm exfoliating bath with a good quality scrub. Doing this three to four times a week can show effective results.

Vinegar pack – IF you’re not allergic to vinegar, mix some rice flour with a few drops of vinegar to form a thick paste. Apply on the affected areas and let it dry for about 20 minutes. Scrub it once it is dry and have a warm bath.

Home lightening pack - A pack made with a mix of yogurt, lemon juice, turmeric and besan should be applied and kept for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with some warm water. Repeat the process everyday for several days to see results.
