How to Lighten Dark Armpits Quickly
What Causes Dark Armpits?
1) Inflammation Caused by Hair Removal Methods
2) Friction from Tight Clothing
3) Natural Deodorants with Irritating Ingredients:
High Levels Of Fragrance: I like having a deodorant that has a light and pleasant smell. However, if you have sensitive skin using a deodorant with high levels of fragrance is not a good idea. It’s okay to have fragrance in your deodorant, BUT it must be in the product at very low levels. If fragrance is included on the ingredients list on your deodorant and it is not in the last two lines of the list, you can assume it’s included at high levels. You can also simply do a sniff test to see how much fragrance is in your deodorant. If you open the lid and the scent is overpowering (sometimes you can already smell the deodorant with the lid on), you can assume the fragrance levels are far too high.
Alcohol: Some alcohols – found in antiperspirants, deodorants AND even natural deodorants – can be the culprit for irritation. So, even if you’re using natural deodorant, or are thinking of switching to natural deodorant, always check the ingredients to make sure it does not include traces of certain alcohols.
How to Minimize The Dark Spot Pigmentation Faster
For those who have melanin-rich skin and have this issue, I created the first underarm skincare system called the Double Dose that will help even out the dark spot pigmentation faster. It’s a simple two-step system which includes a kojic acid body bar and a niacinamide deodorant.
First, use the Takesumi Kojic Acid Body Bar daily in the shower. Lather it for 30 seconds in order to allow the actives to penetrate the skin and rinse off. Then follow-up with the Takesumi Bright Niacinamide Deodorant. It’s a simple yet convenient underarm skincare system because most people shower and use a deodorant on a daily basis.
