Ladies, how many of us have wanted to wear our pride on our collarbones and flaunt them to the world while twirling in itsy-bitsy off shoulder dresses, but couldn't?

How many of us wanted to raise our hands up in the air and gyrate our bum to the sound of immense lauding when India wins a match, but could not?

Have you also told your crazy heart to keep calm while dancing in a discotheque wearing a sleeveless top?

If these instances have happened with you as well and you've given in to your inhibitions of people catching a glimpse of your darker underarms then know that you're not alone and what's even better? We've made you a list of homemade tips and tricks to get lighter underarms! (Yes, it's possible for real!)



7 Effective Home Remedies For Fair Underarms



1. Lemon Juice

Daily after bathing, for a couple of weeks squeeze a lemon and apply its juice and extract onto your underarm skin to let its natural bleaching agents do their magic over time.


2. Rosewater and Sandalwood

Make a paste of sandalwood with rose water and apply the paste on the affected darker area and leave it on overnight. Wash while bathing in the morning. This mixture cools the skin and makes it soft, lighter and supple.

If you are facing dark lips issue, then do note that the home remedies can be effective to resolve the same.


3. Saffron and Cream

Mix a pinch of saffron with milk cream and leave the mixture overnight or wash it after keeping it for 20 minutes. Saffron also has anti-bacterial properties that kills the microbes causing bad odour. To reap better results, add 1 spoonful of curd to the mix.
