HOW TO PREVENT DARK UNDERARMS

If you wear sleeveless garments and are concerned about developing dark patches of skin in your underarms, several precautions can be taken to help you maintain an even, attractive skin tone. 

Routine preventative maintenance and avoidance of certain behaviors are not always sufficient, however; some underarm discoloration can be caused by medical conditions. If you develop dark underarm skin even after diligent preventative measures, consult a dermatologist about potential medical causes and treatments.

Step 1
Wash and exfoliate your underarms daily. Daily Glow, the health and beauty website, warns that accumulations of dirt and oil resulting from poor hygiene habits can darken underarm skin over time, as can the uric acid present in sweat. Routine exfoliation of your underarms with a loofah sponge, pumice stone or exfoliating body wash will clear away dead skin cells, which can cling to creases in the skin and make it appear dark. The health and beauty site The Beauty Brains recommends exfoliants that contain lactic acid.
Step 2
Remove your underarm hair by waxing rather than shaving, if you can stand it. While it’s not always the most pleasant experience, waxing can remove hair at the root, whereas shaving can only cut hair at or just below the surface. If your hair is naturally darker than your skin, the roots left behind may still be visible, giving the appearance of dark underarms. Shaving can also irritate the skin and produce razor bumps or ingrown hairs, all of which can contribute to uneven skin tone.
