DIY- Treatment for Dark Underarms

By Prayati @prayatibaxi
I always feel conscious while wearing sleeveless clothes not only because I have flabby arms but also because I suffer from the problem of dark underarms....I don't have any shame in admitting this fact because most women go through the same problem.
Causes of dark underarms:

  1. Regular shaving...which leaves ingrown hair which makes skin appear dark
  2. Excessive perspiration
  3. Use of alcohol based deodorants directly on the underarm skin
  4. Hereditary problems
  5. post-pregnancy changes
  6. obesity
Now, I have been doing this treatment since past three weeks and I saw some positive changes in my underarm, I thought of sharing this treatment with you..It is very easy and just takes 15 minutes of your time before shower
So, lets get started :
DIY- Treatment for Dark Underarms
1. 3-4 teaspoons of sugar2. 1 teaspoon of turmeric3. 1 Lemon
SUGAR: Exfoliates your underarms and removes dead skin cells which cause darkening
TURMERIC: It is antiseptic and fades away any scars and hyper-pigmentation that the underarm skin may have
LEMON: Its a popular skin lightening agent
Churn the sugar in the mixer don't want it to completely transform into a powder...the granularity of the sugar should be maintained
DIY- Treatment for Dark Underarms
Put the turmeric in the sugar
