1. What causes armpits to darken?
Underarm discolouration can be caused by several factors. Firstly, those who suffer from a condition called acanthosis nigricans (AN) can experience discolouration in the folds and creases. Besides affecting people with hypothyroidism and insulin disorders like diabetes, AN can also be present amongst those are undergoing growth hormone therapy, committing to oral contraceptives, or taking medication containing nicotinic acid.
Another trigger of this condition is bacterial infections, such as one known as erythrasma. This bacterial infection is a common condition faced by people with diabetes mellitus and those in warm climates will be more susceptible to it.
Shaving regularly can also give a very dark appearance. Shaving tends to cause inflammation and repetitive friction, which can significantly irritate your surface. To counter the friction, the layers will thicken slightly each time and hence, becomes a tad darker and hyperpigmented. Constant friction from wearing tight clothes will also darken the colour. In addition, regular use of antiperspirants and deodorants can cause discolouration as certain ingredients in these products can irritate it or elicit a negative reaction.
2. Why should I consider your treatment to whiten armpits?
For some women, the easy way to tackle it is to simply cover them up with clothing. While there is nothing wrong in doing so, it is a short-term solution to the actual issue. Having this condition may prevent you from wearing the clothes that you really want to wear, such as tank tops, spaghetti straps, bikinis, and sexy dresses. Feeling self-conscious should not be an everyday thought for you. You deserve to feel beautiful and be free of embarrassment.
Over-the-counter products and topical ointments may take years before you can start seeing significant results. Even then, they are not always effective in fully whitening your underarms and eliminating discolouration. A proper procedure is usually way more effective and can deliver long-lasting results in a short period of time.
