Baking is personally one of my all time favourite scrubs. By gently scrubbing your underarms constantly and you will get awesome results.

- Wash it with warm water and repeat this process a couple of times per week.

2. Coconut oil:

Not only does coconut oil act as a natural anti-bacterial for your face and body, but also it acts as a great bleaching scrub for your dark underarms.


- Using a soft loaf, massage your armpits with a fair amount of coconut oil.

- Leave coconut oil on your skin for about 15 minutes. 

- Wash your armpits using shower gel or soap that contains lotion. 

- Repeat the exact process twice per day for a week and you'll notice the result. 

3. Potato paste:

Potatoes are just great for dark circles around your eyes. This is why potatoes are also great to whiten your dark armpits. 


- Mash a medium sized potato well until it forms a fine paste.

- Rub the mashed potato against your armpits and leave the paste for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water. 

- You can also grate the potato and use its juice to apply it on your dark underarms and repeat the same process.
