Dark patches on the armpit can be very embarrassing and irritating if seen on a selfie or a video playback. Ladies tend to skip on sleeveless materials just to avoid grossing out people , should they have to wave over the head to a friend or do anything that involves lifting the hand. There are ways to get rid of dark armpits, but first what are the causes.
CAUSES OF DARK ARMPITS
1. Shaving – Aside from razor bumps, shaving with razors cause dark armpits. Razors cut only the hair on the surface of the skin, leaving the inner hairs to form bumps and stubbles , resulting in a dark color. Waxing as against razors or shaving creams do a better job of getting rid of the armpit hairs from the root, keeping you hairless longer sans dark armpits.
2.Use of Strong deodorant – Studies have shown that strong deodorants especially ones containing alcohol, darken the armpit skin. Alcohol leads to dehydration , therefore applying alcohol on your naked skin would expose your skin cells to alcohol, thereby drying them up and resulting in a dark armpit.
3. Dead cells – The accumulation of dead cells, deodorants and sweat, if not probably cleaned can result in dark underarms. Use a good exfoliating cream to get rid of those dead skin cells and to get rid of the dark armpits.
Ways to get rid of dark armpits:
1. Lemon Juice
Rubbing your underarms with lemon juice is one of the most effective ways to lighten your underarms as lemon has natural bleaching properties. It works not only for the armpits but also for the face to get rid of dark acne spots . Apply on face 15 minutes before bathing in circular motions. Apply moisturizer to soften your skin afterwards. When you begin the application of lemon on the skin, it is advisable to use deodorant sparingly to avoid any form of reaction.
2. Baking Soda:
Baking soda works with dark underarms the same way it works for whitening the teeth. Make Baking soda into a paste and scrub the armpits vigorously either with a loofah or scrubber to eliminate dead skin on the armpits.
Papayas contain enzymes that are great for cleaning the skin. Apply shredded papaya on your underarms and let it dry. Wash it off after about 15 minutes. Tea tree oil may also be added.Use papaya that is not too ripe.
Saffron works well to lighten the underarms. Mix a pinch or two of saffron in milk or cream and apply the mixture to your underarms before going to sleep at night. Leave it overnight then wash off the next morning. This will lighten your armpits and kill harmful bacteria that cause bad odor
5. Gram flour and Yogurt

Most of the celebrities you see with spotless armpits are not rubbing lemon juice, baking soda on their bodies. They are doing one of these three things
1. Using an Armpit whitening cream: Natural products like lemon Juice would take about 2 months of consistence to get a spotless armpit , assuming you stop doing any armpit darkening activity while you are at it.

II. The Almighty Photoshop. Photoshop is always to the rescue until there is a head mismatch or an erroneous skin graft.
III. Armpit whitening cream and Photoshop.
