7 Tips for Successful Underarm Whitening

7 Tips for Successful Underarm Whitening

Introduction: 7 Tips for Successful Underarm Whitening

The underarm area is an important part of maintaining a good personal appearance. In Singapore, achieving smooth and white underarms is highly sought after. Fortunately, there are several effective techniques to achieve successful underarm or armpits whitening. This article from Wellaholic will provide 7 tips to help Singaporeans get their desired results in the most effective way possible. From simple home remedies to professional treatments, these tips are designed to help you pick the best solution for your needs and make sure that you get lasting results. Wellaholic also provides professional skin whitening treatment.

What is Underarm Whitening?

Underarm whitening is a beauty treatment designed to lighten the color of underarms, making them look more even and uniform. It involves using treatments such as creams, gels, or laser treatments to reduce melanin production in the skin. The procedure has become increasingly popular as people strive for an even-toned complexion all over their body. 

The results of underarm whitening can vary depending on the individual’s skin type and initial darkness of the area. Generally though, most individuals notice that their armpits are visibly lighter after a few sessions of treatment. Patients may also experience some side effects from certain treatments such as redness and irritation which should go away after a few days. Some laser treatments can cause temporary numbness in the area which usually dissipates within 24 hours.

By exposing your skin to the sun, you would be over-stressing your skin, and this may lead to skin complications such as hyper-pigmentation

Tip 1: Use Sunscreen for Underarm Whitening

Use of sunscreen in the underarm area is growing in popularity as a way to lighten and whiten skin. Not only does it protect against dangerous UV rays, but it also helps remove discoloration and even out skin tone. This can be a great option for those looking for an easy, inexpensive way to get rid of dark patches or reduce age spots on their underarms. 

Applying sunscreen to the underarm area provides several benefits beyond its whitening capabilities. It can help reduce sweating, acne breakouts, and ingrown hairs that are often caused by friction from clothing or shaving-related irritation. Additionally, using sunscreen regularly can help prevent premature aging in this delicate area due to sun exposure.

Tip 2: Exfoliate Regularly for Underarm Whitening

Exfoliating regularly is an important part of your skincare routine, and it’s particularly beneficial when it comes to underarm whitening. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, dirt, and debris which can cause discoloration in the skin. By exfoliating regularly and using products specifically designed for underarm whitening, you can help to reduce discoloration in the area for a brighter and more even complexion. 

When choosing an exfoliant for your underarms, look for gentle formulas that are free from harsh chemicals or fragrances that may irritate the delicate skin in this area. You should use an exfoliant at least once a week on clean dry skin for best results. After exfoliating, apply a moisturizer with SPF protection to help protect your newly revealed skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Tip 3: Use Natural Products for Underarm Whitening

Using natural products for underarm whitening is a great way to lighten the skin without using harsh, chemical-based treatments. It can help restore the evenness of skin tone and reduce discoloration caused by excessive sweating and irritation. Natural ingredients like lemon juice, baking soda, turmeric, aloe vera, and coconut oil are all effective at helping to whiten the skin in this delicate area. 

When used properly, these ingredients can not only help to lighten dark patches or discoloration but also promote healthy skin from within. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which helps protect against free radical damage while also brightening the appearance of dull and dry skin. Baking soda helps balance pH levels of the area while removing dead cells that contribute to dark spots or discoloration.

Tip 4: Avoid Certain Hair Removal Methods to Prevent Hyperpigmentation

For those looking to remove unwanted hair, there are a plethora of methods available. From shaving and waxing to laser treatments and electrolysis, it can be difficult to decide which method is best for you. Unfortunately, when it comes to avoiding hyperpigmentation, some of these methods can be more harmful than helpful. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of certain areas of the skin caused by excessive sun exposure or trauma such as cuts or scratches. To prevent hyperpigmentation from occurring due to hair removal methods, certain practices should be avoided. 

The first course of action is to avoid any form of plucking such as tweezing or threading. These techniques involve removing hairs one strand at a time which causes mild trauma to the skin in the affected area. This often leads to an increase in melanin production resulting in hyperpigmentation over time.

Tip 5: Clean Underarms Daily for Underarm Whitening

Maintaining clean underarms is a must for those looking to maintain their hygiene and achieve brighter, whiter underarms. Daily cleansing not only prevents the accumulation of bacteria, dirt and odour-causing sweat, but also helps to lighten the colour of dark armpits. 

One of the most important aspects when it comes to cleaning your underarms is choosing the right soap or cleanser. Opting for products containing natural ingredients such as aloe vera or tea tree oil can help nourish and moisturise your skin while reducing any discoloration caused by sweat or deodorant build-up. Additionally, weekly exfoliation with a gentle scrub can help remove dead skin cells that may be causing darkness in your underarm area.

Tip 6: Wear Light Colored Clothing for Underarm Whitening

Whitening your underarms can be a daunting task. But with the right tips and tricks, you can have lighter, brighter skin in no time. An easy trick to get started is to wear light colored clothing. This simple action can help you achieve a more even skin tone in your underarms quickly and with minimal effort.

Light colored clothing helps keep sweat from getting trapped against your skin which creates an environment for bacteria growth that leads to discolored skin. So by wearing light colors such as white, cream or pastel shades, you avoid this problem and reduce the amount of bacteria on your skin that may cause darkening of the area over time. Additionally, choosing fabrics made of natural fibers like cotton allow air flow through them so sweat evaporates faster and won’t build up on your body.

Wellaholic offers a natural and gentle skin whitening solution that helps to even out skin tone and give you a brighter complexion

Tip 7: Seek Professional Help for Underarm Whitening

Underarm whitening is a common issue that many people face, and it can be embarrassing for some. If you’re looking for a professional solution to reduce the appearance of dark underarms, then look no further than Wellaholic. We offer a variety of treatments designed to help lighten your underarms, resulting in smoother and brighter skin.

At Wellaholic, we specialise in skin whitening treatments that target melanin in the skin responsible for discoloration. During the procedure, we use both skin whitening creams together with light wavelength beams to break down pigment cells without damaging healthy surrounding tissue. This helps reduce the appearance of dark underarms while also stimulating collagen production which leaves you with firmer and smoother skin in that region.


In conclusion, underarm whitening can be a tricky process. However, with the right plan and products, you can achieve great results. Remember to stay consistent and patient when it comes to whitening your underarms. Everything from exfoliation to sunscreen is important for maintaining beautiful, healthy skin. Don’t forget to incorporate natural ingredients like lemon juice and yogurt into your routine for an extra boost in whitening your underarms safely and effectively.
