I have dark underarms? Any tips on how to lighten them?

I hear waxing can help lighten it up but also painful. Anyone ever got their underarm shave or any other tips to lighten them other than waxing?

  • Lightening the hair or lightening the skin? For hair there isn't anything to do to make it grow in lighter. For skin you can try skin bleach.

  • My grandma used to say Lemon Juice will lighten it up. IDK how true it is but its worth a shot.

  • I used to have very dark underarms too. I had laser hair removal done and now, because I don't shave and irritate the area, my skin has lightened up really well. I know it's expensive, but worth every penny. It took me a long time to create my "laser fund".
