DIY Beauty: How to Lighten Dark Underarms – Charcoal vs Baking Soda


Hey Lovers!!

I hope you’re all feeling and looking fabulous! Today, I have something super exciting to share with you all. How many of you suffer from dark underarms? Maybe you’re looking for ways to lighten those dark underarms? I suffer from the same darn thing and it’s a pain in the ass. I know.. it can be uncomfortable sometimes to even wear a sleeveless top because you might feel insecure about it. Well look no further!! Today, I am going to do 2 underarm lightening remedies and I will compare which one I prefer. That decision will be based on which one works the best for me. I will be using activated charcoal for one and baking soda for the other. Check out the ingredient lists down below.


Charcoal Paste
– 1 Tbsp Honey
– 1 Tsp Activated Charcoal

Baking Soda Paste
– 2 Tsp Coconut Oil
– 1 Tsp Baking Powder

Causes of Dark Underarms:
– Shaving
– Antiperspirant/ Deodorant
– Dead Skin Cells

I know for a fact that waxing really helps with naturally lightening the underarms because the hair is pulled right from the root. Shaving on the other hand darkens the underarms, well atleast it does for me. Reason being that the hairs are removed from the surface, not from the root. I used to wax all the time, now I shave more because it’s less time consuming. I do want to get back to waxing though because my underarms looked FANTASTIC when I waxed.

Also, be sure to exfoliate your underarms to prevent the build up of dead skin cells. This is another cause of dark underarms!! Exfoliate, exfoliate, EXFOLIATE!!

Lastly, sometimes the products you may use, like antiperspirant, may cause your underarms to darken. If this is the case, maybe try switching to another product to prevent this.
