BEST UNDER-ARM WHITENING PRODUCTS IN INDIA

FotorCreated

Come summers, and we all want to hop in to our sleeveless summer dresses and tank tops, don’t we? But at times we tend to forget that our body is like the map of India, its diverse! Ok, so maybe that was not the most logical symbolism for our bodies, but you got the idea right? Our body is sensitive, agreed, but there are certain areas of our body which are a tad bit more prone to sensitivity issues; underarms, sadly being one of those.
Yes, these mostly neglected parts of our bodies deserve a little more care. Regular courses of shaving, accumulation of dead skin cells due to lack of exfoliation, continued exposure to sun without any SPF protection, are the prominent reasons for the irregular darkening of the underarms, to name a bare few.
Below I would like to share with you the till-date, some of the most efficient products available for lightening underarms in the market. The placement on the list is random, not based on any preferences.

1. GARNIER MINERAL LIGHT EXTRA WHITENING ROLL ON DEO

Garnier has had a legacy of creating some fantastic products when it comes to skin care and beauty. And this little baby is one such product which has been moving on the top of the charts, with its huge roll-on head held high, due to amazing results it has been showing. It absorbs odors for good 5-6 hours and gradually lightens the dark under arms; what more can we ask for? The best part, Garnier took the effort to keep this roll-on deo 100% alcohol free, so it is the perfect solution even for the most sensitive skins.

2. NIVEA WHITENING ROLL-ON DEODORANT

Yet another whitening product from the house of NIVEA, a holy-grail skin care range when it comes to Indian skin. Specifically meant to target the problematic dark under-arm area, this roll on deodorant is enriched with licorice extracts and the goodness of witch hazel. Along with lightening the under-arms, the witch hazel present in the deodorant also soothes the sun-exposed sun tan.

3. DOVE WHITENING SILK DRY DEODORANT

Specifically formulated to deal extensively darkened under-arm skin, Dove whitening silk dry deodorant is a steal for its price, quantity and the quality offered. Plus, it does not leave those unsightly deodorant marks or white cast-offs most roll on deodorants leave behind after a few hours of application.

4. HYDROQUINONE CREAMS

I know I issued a disclaimer against hydroquinone, but there is a reason behind its extensive use in almost all whitening products. It delivers results in a sure-shot manner. There are a few creams in the market which use 2% or less percentage of hydroquinone, which I believe, if you are ready to take a chance, can be safe if used sparingly.

5. HOMEMADE WHITENING SCRUBS AND PACKS

Skin lightening can be handled easily even at home, but the key with these products is consistency. Whip up a quick scrub by using just two products, olive or coconut oil and baking powder. Exfoliate the under arm skin with this next-to-miraculous scrub and follow up with a homemade under arm pack; made up of gram flour (besan), lemon juice, turmeric powder and a little curd (due to its lactic acid, it sloughs off dead skin smoothly but efficiently). Another thing you can do is, use a sliced lemon on your under arms regularly, but do not forget to moisturise the skin afterwards as lemon tends to dry out the skin pretty fast.
So these were some of the products which you can use to lighten your under-arms without risking any further darkening. Have you used any of these before? How did they fare for your skin? Do share with us in the comments below.
