Underarms Too Beautiful To Hide!

Underarms Too Beautiful To Hide!

Is your underarm skin darker in skin tone than the rest of your body? You’re not alone. This is one of the most common skin concerns for both men and women. While not a serious medical condition, it is a common cosmetic concern that can be caused by a combination of factors. The good news is that it's never too late to even out the skin tone of your underarms and flaunt your beautiful skin! Say goodbye to dark underarms.

Underarm skin goes through a lot on a day-to-day basis. Everything from your morning shower to walking in the sun can affect its appearance, texture, and tone. This delicate area of the body can become blotchy, darker or uneven in tone. So how do underarms get dark marks in the first place? And are there ways to repair and prevent this?

Discover The Ultimate Underarm Skin Brightening Tips


Your underarms can darken over time for a variety of reasons. Let’s delve deeper.

The root cause is the overproduction of melanin, the natural skin pigment. If your skin is irritated, the body responds by producing excess melanin which can be unevenly distributed in the skin, causing uneven skin tone.

So what causes melanin to go into overdrive?

Shaving or Waxing:

Regular shaving or waxing can cause irritation and inflammation.

Skin Irritation:

Your underarm skin is very delicate, and repeated exposure to drying products or irritating chemicals may cause inflammation.

Dead Skin Cell Build-up:

Without regular exfoliation there can be a build-up of dead skin cells in the underarm area which then darken over time.

Deodorant or Antiperspirant Use:

Certain deodorants or antiperspirants, especially those containing harsh ingredients or alcohol, can cause skin irritation and darkening.

Hormonal Factors:

Changes in hormone levels, such as those experienced during pregnancy or due to hormonal imbalances.


A little TLC can completely transform your delicate underarm area, helping you achieve brighter skin. Make sure you're consistent, patient, and gentle with your skin.

  • Choose a mild and safe deodorant

    Use an alcohol-free deo that targets uneven skin tone while keeping you feeling fresh all day.
  • Gently exfoliate

    Be gentle with your underarms. Use a soft exfoliating brush and dip it in water mixed with your usual body wash. Don't rub too hard but give it soft and gentle strokes.
  • Develop a safer shaving routine

    Always use a lubricant like a shaving gel to keep the area smooth and moisturised, while reducing the chances of irritation. Know the right hair removal routine for you depending on your skin’s sensitivity and manage how often your shave, pluck, or wax.
  • Wear comfortable clothes that cause less friction:

    Keep it comfy by choosing breathable clothes. This greatly decreases the friction that your underarms experience with every movement.
