How To Lighten Dark Under Arams :
If you have an underarm area that is dark then you are not alone. Many women suffer from this condition yet they each think that they are the only one with the problem.
I have underarms that are darker than the rest of my skin and for this reason I do not wear sleeveless clothes. The dark skin under my arms has long been a concern of mine because it makes me so uncomfortable.
 Dark Underarms are caused by 

  • Strong Chemicals
  • Too Much Shaving
  • Dead Skin Build Up
  • Medical Conditions
  • Friction
Ways To Deal With It 
I have read many different methods for dealing with the dark skin in the underarm area and decided to try out some of them .
This is a bit gross but here is a picture of my underarms before I started any of the treatments. Even though the (camera phone) picture is poor you can see the line of difference between the underarm area and the rest of my skin. While the rest of my skin is brown the underarm area is quite black and just plain ugly.
Rub Lemons Under Arms 
All I can say is that I would have been better off making lemonade. While lemons do have bleaching properties they did not work under my arms. I would rub lemon juice under one arm every evening after taking a shower as soon as I got home.
I went to bed smelling slightly sweet and lemony but after one week the left armpit (with lemon) looked just like the right one (no lemon) .

Stop Using Antiperspirant/Deodorant 
Both armpits remained equally dark even though I have been doing this for a month now. Some people mention that if you must use a product then you should use Dove Moisturizing products because the dark skin might be as a result of skin that is too dry.
I substituted Dove with no results under my arms but it did leave a residue on my clothes and made them light!!!!

Wax instead of Shaving
I have always shaved under my arms or used a depilatory cream but I had never waxed before. I bought a Sally Hansen wax kit with the prewaxed strips and got busy. I took a shower, then dried my under arm area and rubbed the strip between my hands to warm it up. I peeled the strips apart and placed one under my arm and followed the directions and then let it rip . 
Especially when it is your first time and you are doing it yourself .
Waxing is supposed to help with the discoloration by removing all the layers of dead cells each time you pull the strip off. I was lucky that I did not bleed because I felt such an intense pain for a few seconds. The pain subsided quickly so I went in for another strip because I had not gotten all of the hair off .
I have waxed for three days now because I have not been able to get all the hair from one area out with one swipe. I am only doing the right armpit so I can compare the effects of the waxing to the other side .

I think the waxing is working....or maybe it is just my imagination because I am so tired of trying different things out .

I will continue waxing for about a month and then I will repost the pictures from that. I need to let the hair grow out a little longer so the wax can grip it so I can pull it out .
