Natural Underarm Lightening Remedies

Do you want to know what produces dark underarms?

Dark underarms can be caused by shaving discomfort, strong deodorant, or a condition known as acanthosis nigricans.

Let’s accept that most women suffer from this skin condition, but there is something you should be aware of! Armpits that are dark can be brightened.

Some women, instead of undergoing a PICO laser system, and trying a whitening deodorant were very curious and opt to try some low-cost home alternatives. 

We listed 8 options for you to consider:

Baking soda + water

Combine 2 tablespoons of baking soda and a small amount of water to make a paste. After that, apply and scrub. After cleansing, rinse with cold water and pat dry (you can do this twice a week).

Coconut oil

Massage daily on the underarms (do this before taking a bath), then rinse with cold water.

 Apple Cider Vinegar + Baking Soda

After 5 minutes, rinse with water (2 tablespoons apple cider).

Olive Oil + Brown Sugar

Scrub for 2-3 minutes, then apply for 5 minutes before rinsing (1 tablespoon olive oil + 2 tablespoon brown sugar).


Rub ½ to underarm for 2-3 minutes before bath. You may use this as a maintenance tool every day or twice a week (lemon is a natural paying agent).

Potato juice

Apply and then wait for 10-15 minutes. This can be done twice a day.

Aloe Vera

Slice the aloe Vera and apply it straight to your skin. Rub it on the underarms for 15 minutes before rinsing. (Aloe Vera is a favorite of mine.)

Yogurt + lemon + turmeric + besan

Let it sit for 2 minutes before rinsing with warm water. (Apply paste to both underarms twice a week.)

Take note: It is also necessary to remain persistent in order to achieve a better result. The natural way may take a little longer to see results rather than using whitening cream.
