Dark coloration of the skin in the underarms region is usually not a disease or medical condition. Dark underarms can be thought of as the skin’s response to exposure to certain elements, similar to a suntan that results from exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.



Some of the main causes of dark underarms are shaving, regular use of hair removing creams, excessive sweating, poor ventilation of underarms, accumulation of dead skin cells, and use of alcohol-based deodorants and antiperspirants.

However, at times dark underarms may also be as a result of a medical condition that is known as acanthosis nigricans which is often associated with insulin resistance, obesity, hormonal disorders, certain medications, and cancer.

You can easily get rid of dark underarms using simple home remedies that are safe, effective, natural and affordable. 


Here are some beauty hacks you can try at home:

1. Cucumber - You can massage a cucumber on your underarms the way you would with a potato or you can use the cucumber juice, too. Do this two to three times a day for best results.

2. Baking Soda - Baking soda is popular for their whitening properties. A lot of girls use it to solve yellow-stained teeth and you can use it to solve dark underarm problems as well. Just mix it with a little bit of water, apply to your underarms, and rinse.

3. Honey Oatmeal Mix - Not only does a honey oatmeal mix whiten dark underarms, it can soothe irritated skin, too. Double yay! Just rub the mixture onto your underarms at least twice a day.

4. Coconut oil - Moisturizing under the arms is extremely important when trying to get rid of dark pits. Coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer that contains Vitamin E which can help lighten dark areas over time.


5. Potato - Did you know potatoes have natural bleaching properties? Oh yes, they do! Take thin slices of potatoes and massage under arms for 5-7 minutes. Rinse with water and repeat 2-3 times a week.

6. Saffron - Saffron to get rid of dark underarms? Who would have ever thought! All you have to do is to add a pinch of saffron to about two tablespoonfuls of mild lotion. Mix it well and apply onto your underarms. Not only does it whiten your skin, but it also gets rid of unpleasant odors from your armpit.

7. Orange peel - This sure is one yummy, fragrant remedy! The bleaching work is done by the citric acid found in orange peels. Dry some orange peels under the sun for about three to four days or until the peels are completely dried. Grind them until they turn into powder form and store it in a tight container. Take about two tablespoons of it and mix with some rose water to apply to your underarms. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes before washing off with cool water.
