First of all, we'd like to say that pigmentation on the underarms is perfectly normal. Even dermatologists have assured us of this fact. But, if you prefer to brighten the area, it's perfectly fine, too. There are habits and products you could try to help even out the discoloration. While you may not see instant results, a daily routine will help heaps! 

How to brighten the underarms

  1. Switch to a different hair removal method.

    It is said that shaving creates frictions which may result in darkening. Tweezing, on the other hand, may trigger chicken skin and dark spots. Your best options are sugaring, waxing, and laser hair removal

  2. Start with a good cleanser.

    Think of your underarm routine as something like your face skincare regimen: To be sure that all the products you'll be using will be effective, you must choose a good cleanser first. Pick a gentle formula to avoid irritation and itchiness.

  3. Apply an exfoliating toner to your underarms.

    Some deodorants accumulate buildup and when mixed with dead skin, may wreak havoc and result in rough texture! Restore the smoothness by applying a toner before you go to bed. Get one with exfoliating acids to help fade discoloration, too. We prefer one with polyhydroxy acids (PHA) that are the gentler counterparts of glycolic and salicylic acids.

  4. Massage a brightening serum or cream.

    This step varies to your liking. If you find a cream too heavy or sticky on the skin, then try a serum, gel moisturizer, or oil. Choose a product with niacinamide, licorice extract, or vitamin C.
