Dark underarms are so ‘not-so-cool’. The worst part is that you cannot wear that oh-so-sexy halter-neck dress you so want to without showing-off your rough, dark underarms! However, there are a few effective DIYs that are effective in giving you huge results. All you need is to whip-up a few ingredients and you have your very own under-arm whitening methods.
Here Are Top 4 Natural Tips To Lighten Underarms
1. Rice Mask
This is a simple mask where you need to mix together 1tbs of Rice flour with 1tbs of milk to make a smooth paste. Now apply this paste evenly all over your underarms and leave for 20 minutes. Scrub-off just before you shower and use warm water for best results.
2. Oatmeal Mask
Here, you need to blend-in 1tomato with 1tabs each of lemon juice and oatmeal, make a smooth paste and apply in on your under-arms. Leave the pack for about 15 to 30 minutes and wash-off. You can also add a piece of ripe banana into this pack along with tomato for that extra moisturizing effect.
3. Papaya Mask
This is one of the best and effective masks used for skin-lightening stubborn dark underarm areas. To make this pack, all you need is Papaya and some Honey. Mix-in 1table spoon of fresh, mashed papaya with 1table spoon of Honey and blend well. Now apply this paste all over your underarms just before you take your regular shower. Repeat with the Papaya underarm pack continuously or every alternate day and you will be surprised with the results.
4. Cream Mask
The Cream Underarm Mask is also efficiently effective in removing dark patchy areas that develop under the arm. Due to excessive waxing or even shaving, your underarms tend to get dry, itchy and scaly. To help in reducing the flakiness along with darkening, mix in 2 table spoon Yogurt, 1 table spoon Honey and 1 table spoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. Blend well and apply generously all over your underarms and wash after twenty minutes. The Lactic acid in Yogurt helps smooth en-up the rough underarm while honey helps moisturize.
For our overall beauty care, it is important to understand that you need to take care of every aspect of your body and its various needs. Hidden areas such as armpits are usually ignored in most cases, leading to discomfort and even infections. In Summer-months you need to be extra careful as there a constant accumulation of sweat and dirt in your underarm area. Simple aggressive scrubbing with soap in the shower is most definitely NOT a solution. Due to careless hair-removal treatments like using the razor for shaving are pure ‘suicidal’ for your underarm-skin. Treat your underarm with love, care and affection like the rest of your body, as it needs to be nurtured too!
