Aloe vera
Aloe Vera contains vitamins A, C, and E, which are antioxidants. It also contains vitamin B12. Antioxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. It can do a lot for the health and appearance of your skin, including reducing the signs of aging.

Ingredient

An aloe vera leaf

Method

Cut open the leaf and extract fresh aloe vera gel.

Apply a layer of this gel on your underarms and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes.

Rinse with water.

Cucumber
Cucumber slices are often used to soothe eye bags and also to lighten under-eye dark circles. This is because cucumber extract has skin lightening properties. The same property can also be utilized for lightening dark armpits.

2 cucumber slices

Method

Rub the cucumber slices on the dark armpits for a minute or two.

Let the juice that has oozed out from the slice onto your skin stay there for another 10 minutes.

Rinse with water.
