Due largely to the use of deodorants and frequent hair removal, underarm skin tends to become irritated and darken with respect to the rest of the body. The first steps we can take to avoid this hyperpigmentation is avoid deodorants and antiperspirants containing alcohol among its ingredients , keep the area moist as the rest of the body, and, if you usually shave, do it in one pass in the direction of hair growth . But there are also some bleaching products that can be prepared at home whitening underarm area, all made ??with lemon.
For the first option, we will need bleaching powder (sold in pharmacies), and the juice of half a lemon . Let’s mix the juice with a spoonful of powder and apply it on armpits. We will lie down on the bed, arms stretched upward to do folds in the skin and leave on for 15 minutes. Then clean with warm water, taking care to remove all the cream. Lemon irritates the skin, so we do not repeat the process more than once a week.
Our second recipe calls for two tablespoons of natural yogurt, two natural glycerin, one tablespoon of olive oil and the juice of a small lemon . We prepare the armpits wiping a cotton soaked in olive oil. Then apply the mixture of lemon juice, yogurt and glycerin. We left for a few minutes and removed by washing well.
The last home bleaching cream is also exfoliating, to ensure that dead cells are deposited in the armpits. We will mix a tablespoon of honey, play half a lemon and two tablespoons of oatmeal . This paste is applied on movements not very intense friction. Then leave five minutes and removed with warm water. We can do it twice a week.
