Even though in Indonesia, the majority of women do not wear clothes that can show the armpit area, but having dark armpits still reduces the aesthetic value of a woman.

 Dark colors on the skin in the armpit are usually not medical conditions or conditions. Dark armpits can be considered as the skin's response to exposure to certain elements, similar to brown because of the exposure to the sun's ultraviolet light.

Some of the main causes of dark underarms are shaving, the use of certain hair removal creams for a period of time, excessive sweating, poor armpit ventilation, accumulation of dead skin cells, use of deodorants and antiperspirants of alcohol.

If your black armpit is caused by this condition, you should consult a doctor for the right diagnosis and treatment.

For black armpits that are not caused by a serious medical condition, you can try several ways to get rid of dark armpits by using simple, safe, effective, natural, and affordable natural remedies.

Using natural skin whitening.

The acidic, anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties in some vegetables and fruits allow them to naturally brighten the skin. The example is :
  •     Coconut oil
Coconut oil is a good choice for lightening dark armpits. Coconut oil contains vitamin E which can help brighten the armpit. At the same time, coconut oil will also work as an effective natural deodorant
  •     lemon
Lemon functions as a natural whitener, strong antibacterial and antiseptic agent. This is why lemon is used in the treatment of various skin-related problems including the dark armpit. Lemon can dry your skin, so use a moisturizer if needed after using lemon
  •     Baking soda

Changes in lifestyle

As mentioned earlier, obesity is one of the main causes of dark armpits. Losing weight can often correct problems. Losing weight is also an effective way to treat diabetes.

Stop doing the things below:

  •     Shaving the armpit area with a razor blade
Dark underarms can be caused by the presence of thick hair roots under the surface of the skin due to shaving too often. Therefore, it is advisable not to shave underarm hair and replace it with waxing techniques. The waxing technique is to remove the armpit hair so that it can remove hair from the roots. Therefore, with waxing, it is expected that the underarm skin looks brighter.
  •     Using excessive deodorant
Anti-sweat chemicals in strong deodorants often make the armpit dark due to an inflammatory response. Indeed, deodorant is one of the important things to use, but it must be remembered that the use of excessive deodorant can make the underarm skin appear black.
  •     Take drugs
If you suspect that the drug you are using causes dark armpits, talk to your doctor about switching to another. For example, when a woman is taking birth control pills and finds her armpit skin turns darker. If oral contraception is the source of your skin condition, you can try switching to a different birth control program to determine if the birth control pill is the cause.

Go to a dermatologist

If you have tried all kinds of ways above and you are not satisfied with the results, your dermatologist can prescribe medications to help brighten the skin on your armpits. The drugs usually are given are:
  •     Cream or retinoid pills
Tretinoin (Retin-A) is considered a first-line treatment for acanthosis nigricans. When used regularly, it can help tighten and brighten the skin in the dark armpit area
  •     Exfoliation using chemicals
Medications containing trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can help exfoliate the skin. This process helps remove thicker and damaged skin to form new, smoother skin.
  •     Calcipotriene (Dovonex)
This vitamin D based cream reduces skin pigment cells. So that dark-looking skin can change brighter with the use of this drug. Dermabrasion or laser therapy techniques can also be used to treat dark skin under the arms.

Although dark underarm skin is usually harmless, it is still worth checking by a dermatologist - especially if you think you might have a condition such as diabetes or an underactive thyroid gland.

Treating the condition that causes it usually will make dark skin fade.

If you suddenly see dark spots under your arms and in other areas of your skin, see your doctor immediately. This can be a sign of a more serious condition, such as cancer.
