Say Goodbye to Underarm Dark Marks

We’ve all heard this before. One of the most common problems women have of their underarms is dark marks. It holds us back from wearing our favorite sleeveless tops and dresses, engaging in sports, and moving without hesitation. And yes, dark underarms may impact our self-esteem and confidence too. We can consider underarm lightening or brightening, but that can be expensive, so we’re here to help find the best ways to help repair your underarm skin.

But before we learn how to say goodbye to them, let’s first find out what causes them. Skin darkening is caused by a lot of possible factors. These include hormones, genes, metabolic factors, body mass index, and inflammation as a result of physical or chemical irritation. However, the usual cause which people can control is physical or chemical reactions such as:

  • Underarm hair removal methods (e.g. shaving, waxing, and plucking)

  • Cleansing underarms with harsh soaps

  • Friction due to tight clothes

  • Use of harsh antiperspirants

How to make underarm dark marks fade

    Consider a good post-hair removal care 

    Removing underarm hair is commonly practiced for hygiene. Whether it’s by plucking, waxing, or laser, the truth is that hair removal hurts as much as it causes dark marks. Remember that our skin naturally produces more melanin after it experiences trauma or irritation, which is why a good post-hair removal care is important.
