Have you noticed dark, unattractive patches under your arms? Do you avoid wearing sleeveless tops because you don’t want people to see your dark armpits? There is good news for you. You don’t have to live with it as there are various solutions to this problem. What’s more, they are cheap, natural, and effective.
Cucumbers have lightening qualities which may help you reduce dark patches under your arms. It’s a cheap solution and you can use it in two ways.
The first method is by preparing cucumber juice. You will do it by peeling and grinding a cucumber as it will let you obtain fresh juice. Use a cotton ball or a cotton pad to apply it under your arms. Allow your skin to absorb the juice and after about fifteen minutes rinse it off with warm water.
Another option is to prepare a paste from cucumber, turmeric powder, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. The cucumber has mainly soothing properties, lemon can bleach dark patches, and turmeric has an antibacterial effect.
Lemon has a high concentration of citric acid which is a natural exfoliant for skin. Scrub your armpits with lemon for about 2 minutes and leave it to sit on the skin for a while before washing it off. Ensure you are consistent with this routine until you get lighter underarms.
Turmeric is often used as a face mask to brighten up the skin. To brighten your armpits mix turmeric, milk and honey together. Apply mixture to your underarm for 10 minutes then rinse off. Consistent application on the armpits will definitely lighten the skin.
