FEATURE: How to whiten your underarms?

Like this post if you want whiter underarms!
One of my all-time top-viewed post is my review of the Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil. You can read it here if you'd like to revisit my underarm challenge.

Since the sun's up and about again, the season of sleeveless tops make it twice as important to have fair underarms. This suggestion still involves using the beauty oil, but I added two new products in the regimen for some variety and "expedited" results.

STEP 1: Keep it Natural
I am a firm believer that anything bad should be flushed out. If you want to whiten your underarms, and if you're really serious in wanting to whiten your underarms, perspire! Well, it's not the perspiration that will whiten it, it's you kicking the habit of using chemical deodorants that would. Switch or continue using the All-Natural Women's Deodorant from Human Heart Nature (P89.75) if you like but in the event that their deodorants get sold out, I would recommend trying out Nivea's Pure & Natural Deodorant. It has a mild Jasmine scent that I love and it doesn't leave white streaks on clothes. Like Human Nature's deo, Nivea's Pure & Natural deodorant let's the skin breathe, doesn't keep in toxins, is gentle on the skin and is free from aluminum salts--an ingredient normally found in anti-perspirants
.
STEP 2: Reinforce Beauty
Instead of using a deodorant at night, use the Sunflower Beauty Oil (50ml/P129.75; 100ml/P289.75) to lighten your underarms. You won't need to worry about perspiring or smelling bad at night anyway since you'd just be getting your daily zzz's. Make your sleep work for you by using the time as your chance to reinforce your skin's natural beauty. The pure-grade oil is not just good at lightening and brightening the skin (not just your underarms, but pretty much your skin in general); but also, it is great in softening your skin thus prevent growth of ingrown hair. If you have stretchmarks on the sides of your arms, using Sunflower Beauty Oil at night is also great to remedy that.

STEP 3: Exfoliate
One very helpful treatment i lightening the skin involves exfoliation. Basically, when you exfoliate, you pave way for younger and newer skin to resurface. Exfoliating your underarms with GoNaturals Skin Peel Purificator is helpful in speeding up the lightening process as it is infused with the skin lightening goodness of Papaya enzymes. WARNING: this product smells sooo bad! And I don't mean smell bad because it doesn't have parfum type. I have very high tolerance for scent especially for natural products because I do appreciate their lack of scent-enhancing chemicals... but this skin-peeling products really smells darn bad. It's a good product to try though as it's just (P69.75).

Te-duh!

FYI, I shave my underarms and yes shaving has a tendency of darkening the armpits and other forms of skin damages; but because I use the Sunflower Beauty Oil, I don't have nasty skin bumps, ingrown hair growth and chicken skin. :D

If you'd like to try out Human Heart Nature products, email me so I can help you! It's not available as internationally, but why not right? It's affordable and worth it anyway!

  3. Hi! I use the milk bath salt that's available everywhere! It's really good for exfoliating and getting rid of old skin cells. Works well not only for my underarms but for my bikini area and everywhere else that needs extra attention. Plus, you'll smell like you've bathed in milk! Hope this helps! :D

  8. I'm not sure I understand the purpose of whitening underarms? I'm just curious as I'm not sure I've hard about this before? Also, I'm trying to go more natural in my beauty routine and I have made my own deodorant with coconut oil, baking soda and corn starch and it works absolutely amazing, even better than my thrusty Mitchum deodorant!

    1. Some people unfortunately suffer from having dark underarms. Sometimes it's hormonal, sometimes it's because of how we care for the skin. Sometimes it's also lifestyle related thats why the armpits darkens. But in the event that it does, working to make it fairer is a tedious task. It can get difficult to have commercial worthy fair underarms, if you ask me. but it is very possible. im assuming your armpits didn't get dark! so lucky of you! usually it does (starts to darken) during puberty.

  15. Thumbs up on your post. Sunflower oil of HN is actually really good. I use it every time, mostly for removing make up. It works great for underarms too, it softens and soothes :)
