Darkness under Arms

Darkness under the arms is normally caused by shaving, or depilatory creams and is especially common in African and Ethnic skin types or it may be caused by hormones. Darkness on the neck can be caused by friction, e.g. if you wear a necklace all the time or again by hormones.

You can try these home remedies at home: Slice a lemon, sprinkle sugar on it and rub on the dark areas, do this daily to notice a difference. Apply plain yogurt (curd) to the darkened area and leave it on for 10 minutes before gently washing it off.

Papaya is another good home remedy, mash it and apply it on the affected area and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off. Remember it takes a while before you will see any results from using home remedy. If you shave or use depilatory creams on your underarms, try Waxing Treatment instead.

If the problem persists use lightening creams that contain Kojic acid, or hydroquinone. Your doctor will be able to recommend something.
