How to Get Rid of Dark Underarms

Do you have underarm pigmentation? Are you insecure about your underarms? What if I told you there was a noninvasive way to get rid of your insecurity. The skin of the underarms can darken or change color, much like skin on other regions of the body. Some people may be reluctant to participate in sports, wear swimming suits in public, or dress in sleeveless shirts due to darker underarm skin than the rest of their body.

First let's start off with the causes of dark underarms. Darkening armpits can be triggered by hormonal disorders, smoking, improper shaving, waxing, certain deodorant or medications, and Acanthosis Nigricans. The skin pigmentation illness called Acanthosis Nigricans is linked to diabetes, obesity, and aberrant hormone levels.

How to get rid of dark underarms

  • Exfoliate

  • Change your deodorant

  • Try to stop shaving and switch to laser hair removal
