Best Treatments For Underarm Whitening

Most ladies, and a growing number of men, are suffering from having dark underarms. Darkening of underarms is caused by many factors.
What are the main causes of underarm discoloration?
1. Skin irritation- the skin of your armpits can react adversely from any products you apply or take, topically or internally.
2. Hereditary- some skin problems including the one mentioned in the main topic is caused by genes.
3. Excessive sun exposure- darkening can also be caused by excessive sun exposure.
Luckily, there are products or methods/treatments that you can use to whiten your dark underarms. These products come in different forms. It can be an oral pill, cream, lotion, roll-on deodorant, powder, etc. Underarm whitening treatments include laser treatment, chemical peeling, diamond peeling, skin bleaching, and more.
Oral pills used in whitening consist mainly of Glutathione, an anti-oxidant used to renew cells with skin whitening as "side-effect". Creams and lotions are usually rich in whitening agents such as Licorice extracts and AHA to help renew skin of the underarms. Roll-on deodorants and powders are laced with Aluminum Sulfate which is proven to lighten skin while preventing body odor.
Laser treatment for underarms are a bit pricey compare to topical products mentioned above. But aside from giving you a whiter underarm, the procedure also removes armpit hair permanently. Chemical peeling and diamond peeling are two different procedures with almost the same outcome. They both peel away dead skin to reveal younger and whiter skin. The difference is chemical peeling uses chemicals to peel away the skin, while diamond peel uses abrasive instruments to help renew the skin. Skin bleaching is a very popular procedure when it comes to underarm whitening.
If you happen to like any of the products or procedures mentioned, you must first consult your doctor or dermatologist to make sure which treatment suits you best.
