It can be embarrassing and unpleasant to notice that our underarms are darker than the rest of our body. This can make it seem like we have poor hygiene or skin conditions, which can cause us to feel uncomfortable showing our underarms. However, there are proven methods and techniques used to achieve underarm lightening and get your natural skin back.
Why Are My Underarms Dark?
Dark underarms are common and can be caused by many things. Firstly, dark underarms may simply be a result of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a usually harmless condition that causes our skin to grow excessive colored pigments in our skin. When this happens, certain parts of our skin look darker than the rest of our body. There are different types of hyperpigmentation and they can look different as well. Depending on what you notice in your underarm, you may have hyperpigmentation.
You might form darkness in your underarm area if you have a condition called acanthosis nigricans (AN). This condition usually forms in areas where the skin on the body folds and creases, like your underarms, knees, knuckles, and neck. AN is similar to hyperpigmentation and is a common condition as well, but there are ways to treat it.
Lastly, while unfortunate, it could be that you do have poor hygiene and need to wash up a bit. Keeping your underarms clean and dry is important to staying healthy. Also, make sure to use deodorant for smelly underarms and ensure that your deodorant works well for you. In the shower, always double check to see if your underarms have leftover deodorant residue. If so, you’ll need to scrub hard to clean that up. You can also keep your underarms fresh by making sure your clothing is not too tight in that area and that air is able to pass through.
