Dark Underarms Remedies

Tags: ,

Dark underarms are a very common problem. Most of us face it. We want our underarms free of hair and so we get it removed. However, anyone who gets their underarms waxed regularly knows that one cannot re-wax the underarms until the hair has grown out, and this is where the problem lies.

Skin being the most important part of your beauty needs to be treated well with right food for healthy skin. Every time we get our underarms waxed, our armpits are completely free of hair for a few days. It is this period where are underarms can sometimes be noticed dark; hence you must know the remedies for Dark Underarms.


While there is nothing wrong with shaving off hair from the underarm region, the underarm region does tend to get darker. This hair is not pulled out from the roots, and so it is often visible below the skin even after shaving, especially if you are light-skinned. If you have not had any problems with shaving your underarms, and if your armpits have not darkened, you can continue shaving them.

Hair removal creams

Hair removal creams contain harsh chemicals. Think about it. The chemical is strong enough to literally melt the hair away. Sure, moisturizing elements are added to most hair removal creams to sooth the skin but there is no doubt that your skin too will feel the harsh effects of the chemical. While the use of hair removal creams is okay once in a while, don’t make it a habit.


In addition to removing hair from the roots, waxing also removes dead skin. Your armpits contain thousands of dead skin cells, and this is especially true if you have dry skin. Apply a light moisturizing lotion every night, and scrub your underarm region with a pumice stone daily, while taking a shower.
However, over a period of time, with regular waxing, your underarms will remain free of hair for longer each time and after some years you will forget that you ever had a problem of dark underarms.


If you feel you must remain hair-free on a daily basis, instead of shaving the hair invest in an epilator. It is not very painful if you remove hair when it is still very small, and if you do so every few days. Your underarms will remain hair-free and clean.
