How To Lighten Dark Underarm

Dark under arm can be very embarrassing, especially when it is noticeable. This can prevent you from wearing sleeveless, short sleeve, armless dress, swimsuits or bathing in public.
Dark underarm can be caused by common factors such as hyper-pigmentation, shaving, as
some ingrown hair tend to make your underarm appear darker, etc. It is also important to note that some deodorant and antiperspirant tend to make your underarm darker.
Most people battling with dark underarm do choose a natural lightening approach. My underarm regimen is occasional shaving and scrubbing. If you have darker arms, moisturizing is also a good idea.

here are 4 natural steps to lighten your underarm.

Step 1
What you need
2 tablespoons of baking soda
1 tablespoon of water
1 bowl
Coconut or Olive oil

Pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda into a bowl, add few drops of water and mix into a paste. Apply the mixture to your armpits and massage gently for a minute. Leave this on for 20 or 25 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water, then apply coconut or olive oil to calm it.
If you have sensitive skin, use one teaspoon of baking soda and leave for 10 minutes only.
This should be done before taking your evening shower. This can be done daily until you achieve your desired results.

Step 2
What you need
1 tablespoons of baking soda
½ lemon

Coconut or Olive oil

Pour the baking soda into a bowl, squeeze the juice of the half lemon into the bowl to make a paste. Add a few drop of water to dilute it. Apply the mixture to your armpits and massage gently for a minute.

Leave for 20 minutes and wash off with cold water. Don’t forget to rub your oil.
If you have sensitive skin, use one teaspoon of baking soda and leave for 10 minutes only.
This should be done before taking your evening shower. This can be done daily until you achieve your desired results, or twice a week depending on your schedule.

Step 3
What you need
½ lemon
2 drops of honey
Coconut or Olive oil

Squeeze the juice of the half lemon into the bowl, add your granulated sugar and honey to make a
paste. Apply the mixture to your armpits and massage gently for a minute. Leave for 15 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Don’t forget to rub your oil.
If you have sensitive skin, leave for 5 minutes only.
This should be done before taking your evening shower. This can be done daily until you achieve your desired results, or twice a week depending on your schedule.

Step 4

What you need
Coconut or Olive oil

Cut thick slices of lemon and rub the slices on your underarms. After 10 minutes, rinse your armpits with cool water, dry them and moisturize with your oil.
None of the above procedures should be done during the day, as the arm can be extremely sensitive to sun light. Secondly, do not apply your deodorant or antiperspirant after scrubbing your underarm. The best time to do the above listed is before retiring to bed.

It’s unrealistic to expect it to be as exciting as it was in the beginning. This doesn’t mean that the fun and spark should die entirely though. Here are some tips and tricks on how to keep the romance alive in your relationship.

1. Put your phone down: Being present when you’re spending time with your partner can make a world of a difference to a relationship. Next time you are together, put your phones away and really appreciate being in each other’s company. The disconnection from the outside world will leave room for an even greater connection between the two of you.

2. Make time for a date night: No matter how busy your schedules are, it is important to always make room for an outing, especially at night. It is all too easy to become complacent in a relationship and fall into a routine where you neglect to make the relationship exciting. Dating should be a part of every relationship no matter how long you have been together. So try setting aside at least one day a month where you rediscover the fun of dating with your partner.

3. Be adventurous together: Trying something new together is a great way to keep the spark alive. Whether you explore a new hobby, or travel to a new destination, it is something that you can look forward to together.

4. Surprise each other: Bring her gifts once in while without reason or write a sweet note for him and tuck it away into his briefcase or car so that he stumbles upon it when he least expects . Although flowers and sweet notes may not seem like huge gestures, it will put a big smile on your partner’s face and remind them just how lucky they are to be in such a loving relationship.

6. Appreciate one another: Show your partner you’re grateful for them by verbally expressing what you love about them as frequently as you can. By showing your love and appreciation through words and actions, it will also constantly remind you why you fell in love with them in the first place.

7. Miss each other: It’s perfectly OK to go on a trip with your friends or do girls’ or boys’ night to give each other the space and opportunity to miss each other. Time apart is a healthy element of a relationship and will leave you wanting more of them.

8. Have fun together: Most importantly, never forget to have fun with each other. Goof around, playfully tease one another, go out with all of your friends, and just enjoy each other’s company. In a solid relationship your partner will always be your best friend, so it’s important not to neglect that.
5. Don’t stop kissing: Remember kissing? It’s that thing that you used to not be able to get enough of. It’s incredibly important to not let kissing go flying out of you relationship. Take the time and effort to plant a mad push on your loved one every day. It’s such a simple technique that can do wonders in regards to keeping the intimacy alive, as well as making each other feel desirable.

6. Laugh more often: Laughing is essential to a healthy relationship. Your partner is supposed to be your best friend; if you can’t have fun and a good laugh with them, then something is seriously wrong. Take the time to rediscover your shared sense of humor.

7. Play dress up: There is nothing wrong with dressing up every now and then. It’s a healthy expression of your sexuality and can be a lot of fun. If you know that your partner has a particular fetish, interest, or kink, indulge in it for a night. He will be thrilled and will more than likely be willing to do the same for you.

8. Be honest: The above isn’t possible without being honest with your partner. If there’s something that you enjoy, whether it be in or out of the bedroom, share it with him or her. If you don’t feel like you can be honest about those kinds of things, you need to ask yourself why.

9. Invest in your relationship: In our busy modern world it can be incredibly easy to stop investing time in your relationship and let it fall into a rut. As with anything, relationships need to be nurtured and encouraged, particularly when they’re long term. Think about it: a relationship that spans years and decades will not stay the same the entire time. A million different things can change during that time, including the people involved. Therefore, it makes sense that time needs to always be taken to keep it healthy, interesting, fun and loving.

10. Don’t argue: Argument is not communication, rather it is noise. Shouting on each other will create problems in your relationship; the best thing to do is to avoid it even when you know that you are not the one at fault. Just say I am sorry dear, let’s just forget about this issue.
