It's a bummer when you've got dark underarms. You get dyahe to wear sleeveless tops or even do simple moves like waving to someone. The pigmentation can be blamed on friction and frequent shaving, and it usually takes some time to reverse those effectsâbut don't lose hope yet! Below, we share the quickest remedies you can do to make 'em shine bright like a diamond in case you have a big event coming up!

Lulur scrub

A tried and tested formula of Indonesian brides, this formula will exfoliate and brighten the area without harming the skin. When used on the underarms, it's highly recommended to use gentle, circular strokes to avoid producing micro-tears on the skin's surface that may lead to irritation and further darkening. The best thing about this method is that you'll notice a brighter result even only after one use. And with regular usage, your pits will be smoother and less dark!

Laser treatments

Revlite is a laser treatment that zaps away pigmentation from the skin. This treatment is used on dark spots and tattoos. Although it's expensive (each session goes for P2,500 and up, depending on the clinic and the package), you will see DRAMATIC brightening after just one session.

Revlite services can be found in the following clinics:

Belo Medical Group Clinics, Wink Laser Studio Alabang and Bonifacio High Street, and Skin House Pioneer
