Dark skin in armpit is one of the commonest problems caused by hyper pigmentation of the skin, wearing tight fitting clothes and shaving underarm area with razors or creams. Here are the natural tips to get rid of underarm darkening. Follow these tips regularly for better results.

Tips to whiten underarms:

Coconut oil:
Massage underarms for a few minutes with some warm coconut oil and leave it on for about half an hour. Go for a steam and then have a warm exfoliating bath with a good quality scrub. Doing this three to four times a week can show effective results. The Vitamin E in coconut oil can help lighten dark skin over time, so for best results apply it

Orange peel treatment:
Orange belongs to the family of lemon and it also holds similar bleaching properties as lemon. Dry the orange peel in shade and grind it into powder.  Add some rose water and milk to it and make it a thick paste. Apply this paste to your underarms and gently scrub the area for about 10 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. This scrub removes dead cells and bleaches your skin.

Bleach with lemon:
Using natural products is the best idea. Nothing is as good bleach as lemon. Apart from its cleansing properties, it also has anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties. The acidic property in the fruit helps to lighten your skin and exfoliates dead skin cells. Take a slice of lemon and rub your underarms before you go to have bath. Apply some moisturizer after your bath. Try doing this regularly for effective results. Even you can mix lemon with a pinch of turmeric and honey for best results.

Milk and flour pack:
Make a thick paste out of milk and white or wheat flour and apply a thick layer of it on your underarms. Let it dry off and rinse. This mixture helps exfoliate the dead skin off and the milk helps lighten the skin.

Home lightening pack - A pack made with a mix of yogurt, lemon juice, turmeric and besan should be applied and kept for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with some warm water. Repeat the process everyday for several days to see results.

Follow these simple treatments to lighten your underarms.
