Weekend Plus Desk :
If your dark armpits make you conscious while raising your arms, or you have simply stopped wearing sleeveless outfits to shun the embarrassment, then this story is going to make your day. Dark armpits are a common problem, and can be fixed with easily-available ingredients in your kitchen. Here are five home remedies you can try this week to flaunt toned, smooth underarms!
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and helps to brighten up the discoloured area. All you need to do is to rub lemon juice on the darkened area every day for two-three minutes before taking a bath. Follow this with moisturising the area once you are done with bathing, and you'll start noticing results in 7-10 days.
2. Potato
Potato is also a great natural bleach and an anti-irritant that helps to lighten underarms and provides instant relief from itchiness. You can place a thin slice or apply potato juice on your armpits and keep it for 10-15 minutes. For effective results, use it twice a day, and say hello to brightened underarms!
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar contains mild acids that help to remove dead cells, and is also a great disinfectant. Start with mixing two tablespoons each of this vinegar with baking soda. Apply this mixture for about ten minutes or till the time it is dry. Rinse it with cold water, and repeat it thrice a week to see results.
4. Olive Oil
Mix a tablespoon each of olive oil with brown sugar, and you have a DIY exfoliator ready! Scrub it for a minute or two, and then leave it for five minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and this can be applied twice a week for effective results.
5. Aloe Vera
You can either scoop out the gel from Aloe Vera plant or use organic Aloe Vera gels available in market. You simply need to apply this gel on your underarms for 15 minutes and rinse it off afterwards. It is a natural exfoliator that removes dead skin, and is loaded with anti-bacterial properties that helps to soothe and nourish skin.
