Are you conscious of wearing sleeveless outfits for the fear of displaying dark armpits? Well, you’re not alone. Almost every person wants flawless underarms, but not everyone has them.
There could be many reasons for the cause – shaving, dead skin cells, friction, hereditary factors and even diabetes. But, there are ways to prevent and treat them to get fresh glowing pits.
The art and science of looking beautiful is most often staying on top of your beauty regime and where possible, not been afraid of trying new things.
The beauty vlogger Farah Dhukai, who has impressed us many times with her easy beauty DIYs in the past, recently posted a video sharing her secret recipe to get perfect armpits using charcoal and honey.
She used 1 tablespoon of raw honey and added three capsules of activated charcoal.
Mix both the ingredients together and apply it to clean and dry underarms. Leave on for 20 minutes. You can relax your arms and let the pack work like magic. Wipe off with warm washcloth and get the best results ever.
You can do this as often as you can for best results. If you have sensitive skin,
do a quick patch test to see if your skin is allergic to these ingredients.
Activated charcoal is known for treating body odour and acne. It effectively pulls out all the impurities and leaves the skin fresh. On the other hand, honey has antibacterial properties. It is a natural bleaching agent. It releases hydrogen peroxide, which also lightens underarms.
Farah also suggests that instead of shaving your armpits, try waxing or laser as shaving can damage your skin and can trigger hyper-pigmentation.
Try it for yourself and let us know how it works out for you.
