Are your dark underarms troubling you? Are you unable to wear your favourite sleeveless dress?

If that's the case then don't be disappointed, because like many other problems, your home has solution to this one as well.

Just try some of the quick fixes recommended here and see for yourself!

But do remember that you need to try these for atleast a few days to see the results. Meanwhile you can continue with your regular waxing and massaging also.

Here are the remedies that will help you –

1) Potatoes

This is the easiest one. Simply rub a slice of potato on your underarms twice daily. Alternatively, you can also grate the potato and apply its juice on the under arms.

If you are not able to do this twice daily then you can do it even once a day for some days. The bleaching properties of potato will start showing its effect.

2) Cucumber

This one is also simple. Like potatoes, simply rub a slice of cucumber on your underarms once or twice daily. Or, grate it and apply the juice of it. Leave it for some time till it dries.

You can also add some turmeric powder and lemon juice to cucumber juice and leave it on your underarms for around 30 minutes. This remedy can be done on weekends also.

3) Lemon

This is yet another natural bleaching agent. You can cut a lemon into half and rub it on your underarms. Let it remain on the skin for around 10 minutes.

You can also sprinkle some sugar on the cut piece of lemon and then rub it on the skin. This will remove the dead skin also. Alongside, it will help in the odour as well.

After the application and subsequent drying, wash the area and apply moisturiser to it as lemon can make the skin dry.

4) Coconut Oil

Simply apply the coconut oil on the underarms and leave it for 10-15 minutes. After that wash it with mild soap and luke warm water. Doing this a couple of times in a week or if possible daily will make the underarms white.

5) Baking Soda

This one is equally easy like others. Simply add some water to the regularly used baking soda and make a paste of it. Now apply this paste on your underarms and scrub it. After that, wash the area with water. This will make your underarms fair.
