In other cases when such ladies wear sleeveless tops, they are careful not to lift their hands especially in the presence of crowds or people who may have a crush on them.
However, such ladies are in luck as there are several ways they can use to lighten their underarms without using a lot of money. Check some below.
1. Using potatoes
Potatoes are a great way to lighten dark armpits as they have a mild acidic property. All one has to do is to cut a thin slice the potato then rub it on their underarms. Another option is to grate the potato and apply the juice on the underarm. The juice should be allowed to dry for a period of 25 to 30 minutes after which it should be washed in lukewarm water. One should be able to notice the results in about a month’s time. Other than being cheap, it will not cause skin irritation.
2. Using lemons
Lemons are known for their bleaching properties. One only has to cut the lemon into two slices then rub the juice on the armpits. The juice should be allowed to dry off for about 10 minutes then the area be washed. This exercise should be repeated few times in a week before the results are seen. However, one should note that lemon juice can dry out ones skin and so a moisturiser should be applied once one is done.
3. Baking soda
Other than baking soda being used to whiten teeth, it can also be used to lighten dark armpits. All you have to do is mix the baking soda with water so as to make a thick paste. The paste should then be used to scrub the armpits after which it should be left for a period of 20 to 30 minutes. The paste should then be washed off. This exercise should be repeated as often as possible.
4. Other ways
Other than using the above ways, one can also lighten dark armpits using coconut oil and orange pills. The coconut oil should be massaged and the oil left for about 10 to 15 minutes on the armpit. It should then be washed off with mild soap and lukewarm water. The exercise should be repeated three times a day until the desired results are achieved.
As for the orange pills, they should be dried under the sun for a few days and then ground into powder form. Two teaspoonfuls of the powder should then be mixed with enough rose water and milk to make a paste. The paste should then be scrubbed under the armpits and left for about 15 minutes. The armpits should be washed with cold water and the exercise repeated thrice a week.
