Dark underarms, be gone!

Ask a friend, or a friend of a friend if they’re content with the appearance of their underarms and more than likely, you will find quite a few who are displeased.

Lucky are the ones who, despite using the harshest deodorants or shaving so very often, are still blessed with silky, smooth and white underarms. You may call it pure luck or good genes, but for the many, they put a lot of effort in making their underarms appear just like how it is in TV commercials and billboards. However, efforts may be wasted if improperly guided. You may be causing more harm than good to your underarms by doing the following:


Shaving merely cuts the hair from the point where the razor touches the skin. If you have dark-colored underarm hair, this can affect the illusion of dark underarms. If you do shave often, hair seems to grow thicker and faster. However, this has not been scientifically proven.

One probable reason is when you shave, you cut the hair where it's thickest, and when the hair grow's back again, the normal tapered end is not there anymore. Growing hair may cause itching, especially if the hair is curly. Some patients have ingrown hairs and this can lead to bumps that look like pimples that can complicate matters. 

Shaving may also lead to what may look like “chicken skin”. Some people may also develop a reaction to the razor itself, so any contact it has on the skin can cause itchiness and irritation which consequently may lead to darkening of the underarms.

Using harsh deodorants.

Many deodorants in the market today contain strong ingredients that may cause underarm darkening. A gentle product for another person, may be harsh for yourself and vice versa.

If you experience itchiness or extreme dryness while using your deodorant, immediately discontinue use to prevent further irritation which can lead to underarm darkening. Pay your dermatologist a visit. He/she will aid in finding the right deodorant or antiperspirant for you.

Practicing Poor Hygiene.

Years of dead skin caused by deodorants, sweat, friction, etc. may be embedded on your underarms causing it to darken without you even knowing it. Basic cleansing with a mild soap and water will prevent bacterial overgrowth which may result in body odor and may contribute to underarm darkening. Occasional exfoliation done in a dermatologic clinic may further help improve darkening by removing the superficial layers of dark skin to reveal lighter, smoother skin.

A big mistake that is commonly made is rubbing the underarms with the hope of "removing" the dark colored skin– this is a big NO NO. Friction will worsen the situation.

Certain medical conditions can also cause underarm darkening. One common cause is Acanthosis Nigricans which is thickening and darkening of the skin folds. This condition is highly resistant to treatment and a consultation with a dermatologist is warranted to confirm the diagnosis and to search for an underlying cause.

If you are suffering from dark underarms for quite a while now, topical products alone may not be as effective when it comes to lightening. Layers of dark and dead skin must be removed through a combination of chemical peels and products. Consult your dermatologist to know which procedure or product is best for your situation.

At HOO, we offer Sensi Peel Exfoliating Axillary Treatment. This chemical peel treatment is ideal for sensitive skin. It's so mild that it works best to lighten the underarm area.

Here’s a step by step peek into the treatment:

• The underarms are cleaned, followed by a toner application

• Sensi Peel is applied

• Serums are applied, followed by a Retinol Peel.

• Lastly, moisturizers are applied.

Let dry for 2-3 minutes in between layers. The patient goes home with the products on and should be washed after 8 hours or more for better penetration of the products on the peeled area.
