How To Get Rid Of Dark Underarms DIY

What’s the problem: So, you’ve made the switch to natural deodorant, but you’ve noticed something: your underarms are darkening a bit.

What are the causes: This is not an uncommon phenomenon when getting the body used to deodorants that contain baking soda as a natural ingredient. Don’t worry! The Freedom Family is here to help you with some darkening armpit remedies.

DIY Ways to Prevent Dark Armpits and Lighten At-Home

Use a DIY Honey-Lemon Scrub
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice

Mix into a thick paste. Massage a dime-sized amount onto underarm. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Don’t Throw Out Those Squeezed Lemon Halves

The natural acidity of citrus helps to offset the alkaline of the baking soda

  • Remove the rind (peel) of a lemon, lime, or orange
  • Lightly rub the peel in broad circular motions on each armpit for 30 seconds each
  • Gently rinse citrus off with lukewarm water and mild soap to prevent irritation from overexposure to citric acid

Less Really Is More

The old adage less is more is new with our natural formula: a couple of swipes is all you need. The lighter the application, the less you might experience underarm darkening.
