I'm having chit-chat with my friend a while ago, we talk about kids, relationships ... til it came to a point when she ask me about personal hygiene. She got problem with her armpit. She has dark underarms. She already tried almost everything but her armpit got worsen. I told her that mine works fine with QUELCH in avon but it didn't works for her. How about you guys, what are your remedies to have a white, flawless underarms?

Is she dark herself? Then the darkness is natural. I would not know about that. My problem is that I have a couple of small warts under my arm and cannot shave and have to use a wax. If it is due to dark hair, then the answer is obvious but if it is the colour our her skin, I do not know what to do about it.

That sucks. All i had to contend with was underarm hair. Perhaps she has an allergic reaction to the deodorant. Maybe it is an allergy. I think waxing would help. What I do is to put the wax on the strip, but not in the direction they tell you and after that pull the hairs out. The wax has stuck to them. I am not talking about the hot wax, but those Veet strips. It might help and better then lemon whitening. Here is where IK got the information. http://mybeautyandfashion.blogspot.com/2008/05/how-to-lighten-dark-underarms.html

like what our grandmother said, coat a lime in the armpit. but not to much just a little because lime or kalamansi is so much acidic. but its the best way. No bad odor and your armpit so white but not actually white. Until now i do that in my self.

Hi zhawee! There are some who does this and it's very effective but for others it makes them sweat more.

She already done that before and she says that it whitens the armpit but when she started using it she sweat a lot. She felt uneasy every time she got stain and wet armpit specially when she goes outside and even for the air conditioned area her armpit still wet and ewww.

I do not have that perfect underarms but I tried several things that may lighten it. I tried to use whitening deodorant and so far there are noticeable changes that happen around 2 weeks time after using a product. I think you should refrain from plucking and shaving your underarms hair. Might as well use a wax to remove those hair and to avoid having it darkened. You may also go to a salon that offers whitening specialty. Good luck!

Can you tell me that whitening deodorant that you mentioned?

hi:) sometimes deodorant can cause darkening of the armpit, because some are allergic to some content in it, so it's better if she use hypo-allergenic deodorant. or she can also try to use lemon, it can help to lighten some dark areas,just scrub the lemon juice on any part that's darker and leave it for 15-30 minutes before she take a bath everyday.

I do have the same problem. It all starts when I get pregnant to my 1st child. And now his 10 months old, my underarms still dark :( I am planning to try this peeling solution to whiten my armpit. I hope it works for me.
