Dark Spots Under Arms
The darkening of the armpits can be due to many factors such as hormonal problems or especially due to friction from clothing with delicate skin. We can’t fight against hormones with this scrub, but if your dark underarms are due to friction or overuse of shaver, it may be of help to you.
Remedy for summer:
- Mix a tablespoon of coconut oil with a teaspoon of baking soda to form a paste and use it to exfoliate your armpits once a week until you see results.
- The oil moisturizes the skin while baking soda helps get rid of bacteria and removes dead cells.
- Don’t use it too roughly, if it irritates, stop and try to use it at night before bed so you can wait until the morning to use deodorant.
Change your shaver head ideally once every two weeks (but at least once a month) to be able to prevent your armpits from staining. If you can, use wax, preferably homemade wax, instead of shaving, because it is far more effective and doesn’t blacken your armpits.
