    You should also change the way you remove hair in your underarms.If you are using some hair removing creams to remove hair in your underarms, then you should stop using these. Those products has strong percentage of acid and other substances that will remove hair but can also make your skin darken.
    Shaving also darkens the underarm, too much friction will cause skin disruption. If you are having trouble with your hair growing fast, you could try waxing your underarms instead of shaving, or you can use a sugar procedure of removing unwanted hair.

    You can also use baking soda and vinegar to lighten your underarms.

    -Mix a teaspoon of baking soda and two tablespoons of white vinegar to make a whitening paste.
    -Apply the paste in your underarms.
    -Rub gently and massage the paste in your underarms in a circular motion.
    -Do not overdo scrubbing.
    -After finishing rubbing the whitening paste, rinse it off completely with water.
    -Do this twice a day, preferably after taking a bath.

    Another natural ingredient that you can use is the sunflower oil. Apply an ample amount of sunflower oil on cleaned armpit every night before going to bed to lighten your skin naturally. Sunflower oil will also help get rid chicken skin on your underarm as a result of frequent flocking/shaving.

    Lemon is one of the best astringent that helps to reduce the darkness. You have to rub the lemon regularly. It really works.

    Maybe, you should consider using natural products such as lemon or coconut oil. Chemical products are really one of the cause for dark armpits.

    I share the same problem, that's why I'm thinking of getting laser hair removal instead of shaving. Anyone done any underarm whitening treatments (by dermatologists)? Is it really effective?

    To remove dead skin cells and lighten your underarms, rub a lemon wedge on the skin for a few minutes. Leave the juice on your skin for about 10 minutes and then wash the area thoroughly. ...
    Another option is to mix a little turmeric powder, honey or plain yogurt in some lemon juice and apply it to your underarms.
