Armpits are not a particularly attractive body part so we’re not so willing to flaunt them unless it’s summer and we’re forced to wearing sleeveless t-shirts and dresses. Even then, many are embarrassed by the fact that armpits can get smelly, hairy and dark-colored.
When it comes to the smell and hairiness, we can control that aspect regularly, but the dark colored skin under the arms is something that can’t be fixed as easily. This problem can make a lot of women self-conscious and this is a big problem in the summer when we tend to wear as less cloths as possible. So how about if we told you a neat little trick that will lighten the under-arm area and resolve your problem?
It may sound strange but potatoes can do wonders for your armpits, restoring their natural color and enabling you to raise your arms without feeling embarrassed. They contain an enzyme called catecholase, which has skin-lightening properties and will eliminate your problem in an instant.
Here’s what you need to do:
Take a raw potato, rinse it and grate a quarter cup in a small bowl. You don’t have to peel it. Apply the paste onto your armpits and leave it on for half an hour. Rinse and repeat the process until you get the desired results.
