Home remedies by Sheetal Rawal

With winter finally over and the dawn of beach season upon us, it’s time to get out of the house and start enjoying the crisp, warm weather. Well, we would enjoy it more if we didn’t have to struggle with dark underarms. Before, we could cover up our armpits with layers and layers of long clothing. But once it gets hotter outside, who wants to be stuck wearing a jacket or a long-sleeved shirt at the beach?

Even if you are okay with dark underarms, that area is sensitive and as vulnerable to infection and irritation as your other body parts. In fact, there could be bacteria in your armpits that could be causing an uneven skin tone. Therefore, it is important to nourish and soothe our underarms, especially if doing so will lighten them up in the process. Over time, these remedies can help you lighten your underarm skin and keep it healthy too. You don’t have to be afraid of sleeveless shirts anymore!
