don't worry. it's normal for pregnant women. you're having pigmentation. no matter what you apply it will still be dark. it will return to normal after you give birth.

I heard lemon juice works to lighten skin but I have not personally tried it. You're supposed to rub the lemon on your skin and leave it on for about 15 minutes. They also sell deodorant that is supposed to help lighten the skin under your arm. Or you could stop shaving and use another method of hair removal.

Yes nivea works, i use nivea night cream. I also shave my arm but nivea helps to prevent darkening. Just make sure to use sharp razors to prevent cuts and scars. Use also shaving creams =)

Hi there. Yes nivea would do that... But I think it has got something to do with shaving the armpits, which I noticed darkens too... Nivea roll on will fix that up...

I use roll on to maintain my underarms to be white all the time. Lol. It is nivea white roll ons. Maybe you can try it, it is safe even during pregnancy. I've watched at the television too that nowadays many pregnant women wear bio oil which is most suitable to maintain skin health. It is effective to prevent stretch mark, and also to diminish scars and to whiten the underarms. Good luck.
