    1 . Shaving

    When you use a razor to shave, you cut off hair just below the surface of the skin. Shaving results in unsightly stubble, which gives the illusion that you have darker underarms. The same goes for hair removal creams like Anne French or Veet. Both of these also remove hair on the surface only, which makes the underarms look darker. The fact that shaving results in ingrown hair also further contributes to the problem. Instead, try waxing as it removes the hair from the root itself.

    2 . Dead Cells

    Darker underarms could very well be the result of dead cells accumulation on your underarms. All you need to do is exfoliate gently, either by using a loofah or scrubs with lactic acid.

    3 . Using Deodorants and Antiperspirants Excessively

    Many theories reveal that the chemical compounds in strong deodorants could be the reason for darker underarms. This leads to pigmentation, which can result in permanently darker armpits. To change that, use deos for sensitive skin or resort to natural methods for dealing with underarm odour.

    4 . Friction

    Sometimes, when we wear tight clothes on a daily basis, the friction between the material and your armpits can lead to darkening. To reverse the damage, switch to looser clothes and fabrics that breathe easily in the summer. Basically, fat accumulated under the arm rubs against fabric and causes darkening. Losing weight will also help.

    5 . Hereditary Factors

    Sometimes, hereditary factors can be the cause for darkened underarms. It could be excessive weight gain, hormonal factors that result in pigmentation or even the use of birth control pills. In such cases, visit the doctor to get professional advice as your problem is much deeper than just dark underarms.

    6 . Diabetes

    What many people don’t realize is that diabetes also causes pigmentation, resulting in darker underarms. The best way to deal with this is to maintain optimum insulin levels and try natural remedies.
