How To Get Rid Of Those Annoying Underarm Dark Dots You Get From Shaving

The best and worst part of summer: tank tops. Being able to go sleeveless is both a blessing and a curse. It’s great to get some extra air under those things (#noshame), but we also have to be way more diligent about shaving our underarms (#noshame part 2). After months and months of shaving, our underarms can finally breathe during the summer, but there may be some new marks that show their time in hibernation ugh.

If you suffer from underarm dark dots, we have some tips that will help you rid of them and get you feeling confident this summer!

  1. Potatoes, Cucumbers, Lemons – oh my! You heard us – all of these foods have a slightly acidic property that allows them to act as a natural bleach. Rub a thin slice of one of either a potato, cucumber, or lemon on your underarm, and let the juice heal the affected area, too. Then wash it off after about 10-30 minutes. *When using the lemons, make sure to apply some lotion afterward because the fruit can dry out your skin.
  2. Baking Soda. Baking soda can be used as a natural exfoliant. Mix baking soda and water to create a paste, and scrub away. Repeat this a few times a week and, hopefully, your dark spots will disappear! This treatment also eliminates dead skin cells #winning.
  3. Coconut Oil. The Vitamin E found in coconut oil helps lighten the underarms and is a great, easy solution to get rid of those dark spots. Massage your underarm with the oil, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it off! It also acts as a great natural deodorant.
  4. Orange Peels. This one require some more preparation, but it should work! Dry out some orange peels, and then grind them into the powder. Combine them with rose water and milk to create a paste and apply to your underarms. Wash it away with cold water, and you should be good-to-go!
