How To Remove Dark Armpits
1. Waxing Or Electrolysis
The biggest reason for dark underarms is shaving or using hair removal creams. Instead, try waxing. It will hurt more, but at least the hair will be removed from the root and your underarms will appear fairer immediately. Waxing also works as an exfoliating method. For those who want to get rid of underarm hair for good, electrolysis is another permanent option. In time, the darkened patches under the arm will lighten.
One of the most effective ways to lighten underarms is to rub them with lemon juice every day before taking a bath. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and will slowly lighten the area. After your bath, use moisturizer to soften the skin and skip the deodorant for a few days.

3. Lightening Masks
To get rid of dark underarms, make a homemade whitening pack or buy one at the market. If you want to prepare the mask at home, mix a handful of gram flour with yogurt, lemon and a little turmeric powder. Keep it for 15-20 minutes, and then wash it off. If you want to buy a readymade mask – try any clay-based lightening skin mask.
Potato also works as a natural bleaching agent. You can either rub underarm skin with thinly sliced potatoes, or grate the potato and apply the juice to the affected area. Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash. You will notice that soon the underarm skin appears to be lighter in colour. Similarly, you can grate a cucumber and apply the juice under your arms.

5. Saffron Mixture
An effective home remedy that works in two ways is mixing a pinch of saffron in two spoonfuls of milk or cream and applying to the underarms before bed. Keep this for the whole night, and wash off the next morning. Not only does this lightens the underarms, but also kills all germs and bacteria that cause underarm odour.
Since we know that your deodorant or antiperspirant could be the reason you have darker underarms, give them a miss. Instead, try natural remedies to combat body odour for a few days. You can mix baking soda with a little water and wipe the underarms with this solution. Anti-fungal powders and alum are also great alternatives. Once your underarms look lighter, shift to specialised whitening deos or deos made especially for sensitive skin.

7. Try Sandalwood and Rose Water
Another great way to treat dark underarms naturally is to create a paste of sandalwood with rose water. While the sandalwood has lightening properties, the rose water will cool down the skin and make it softer. Leave the paste for a few minutes before washing it off and use this every day to see a difference.
8. Whitening Scrubs
If your dark underarms are a result of dead cell accumulation, the best way to treat this is to use whitening scrubs. Select a scrub for sensitive skin, such as Nivea, St Ives and Everyuth Naturals.

IF YOU WANT REALLY FAST RESULTS (1-2 DAYS) DO THIS:
Baking Soda Pack
You have to mix gram flour with lemon juice, turmeric, a tint of bleaching powder & curd and prepare a paste. You have to apply and rub the paste first, and then let it dry for next 20 minutes. Then, you should rinse the skin with cool water and wash it away. After that, you should apply baking soda on the underarm skin instead of the deodorant and see the magic.
