Get rid of dark underarms using charcoal and honey.
Are you conscious of wearing sleeveless outfits for the fear of displaying your dark armpits? Well, you are not alone. Almost every person wants flawless armpits like celebrities.
There can be many reasons for dark underarms- shaving, dead skin cells, friction, hereditary factors and even diabetes. However, you can treat them with home remedies to get glowing pits.
Beauty vlogger Farah Dhukai, who has impressed us many times with her easy beauty DIYs in the past, posted a video sharing her secret recipe to get perfect armpits using charcoal and honey.
Method: Take 1 tablespoon raw honey and add three capsules of activated charcoal. Mix both the ingredients together and apply it on 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.
How it works?
Activated charcoal is known for treating body odour and acne. It effectively pulls out all the impurities and leaves the skin fresh. Honey has antibacterial properties and 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 worked out for you.
