If you’re someone who is trying to minimize the dark spot pigmentation on your body then you need to start using this ingredient.
1. shave the right way
If you shave, it is best to shave at night using a shave oil to form a proper barrier on the skin that will reduce the chances of micro-cuts. Also wait 12-24 hours after shaving before applying any body products including deodorant and body lotion.

2. use non-irritating underarm products
- Aluminum (antiperspirants)
- Baking soda
- High levels of fragrance
It is also important to note that underarms should always be treated gently. Over-exfoliation with rough scrubs and loofahs will exacerbate hyperpigmentation issues and can lead to very stubborn dark spots.
