This problem is the pits: Solve underarm discoloration with these easy steps
1. Exfoliate your skin
Dead skin cells are one of the leading causes of armpit discoloration. Blast away those dead cells with an exfoliating sugar scrub.
2. Wax 'em
Getting a professional wax can remove tiny hairs that show up below the surface of your skin and make your underarms look dark even after you've just shaved.
3. Change up your deodorant
Irritation from chemicals in your deodorant can also cause discoloration. Try out a deodorant made especially for people with sensitive skin.
4. Try a natural remedy
Try bleaching naturally with a mix of lemon juice and yogurt or honey. Apply it to your armpits and let it sit for ten minutes before you rinse.
5. Make a visit to your dermatologist
If the problem still won't go away, you might want to see a doc—an overproduction of melanin could be the cause. Your dermatologist can supply a cream that can help slow down your melanin production and even out your tone.
