Although it is not a health problem but aesthetic, there are a number of home remedies that can reduce the color of your armpits.
Underarm skin can darken due to multiple factors, the most common being overweight and waxing. The latter can cause irritation which in turn stimulates a greater production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the coloration.
The good news is that you can tone down the color of this area of the body with a simple beauty routine that combines exfoliation and whitening thanks to the benefits of orange peel and sandalwood.
In addition to being an excellent bleach, the orange peel mask is a natural exfoliant. To prepare this recipe you must put the skin of 2 large oranges to dry in the sun.
Grind the peels of the orange until you get a flour. Mix the powder with a little water or milk to form a paste that you will later apply to the armpit area with gentle circular massages. Let stand for 5 minutes and then rinse with water.
Sandalwood powder is widely used as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, so its effectiveness has been proven. How do you prepare? Mix 2 tablespoons of sandalwood powder with a little rose water.
Once you get a thick paste, apply to the armpit area and let it rest for a few minutes before removing with plenty of water. Repeat this procedure every night before bed to notice the results.
