How about wearing bolero?

I need to know that, too! Perhaps waxing? Does that help, bees?

@out4answers:  Well, it’s not a lot of fun, but if you get someone who knows what they are doing its so fast it doesn’t matter.

AsK them if they use hard wax and if they can apply it to get it in ONE pull per underarm.

I will never shave again!!!

I got a body scrub done at a spa and that helped me 🙂  She spent a lot of time under my arms removing all the dead skin 🙂

@Kewii:  That’s a great temporary fix! Perfect when you’re in a rUsh.

Waxing exfoliates as well.

Epilating! I started doing my underarms and haven’t looked back! It’s perfect for a quick fix because you don’t need to heat wax, can get all the smallest hairs, and it’s easy to do at home – plus it’s gentler on the skin than waxing as it doesn’t pull the skin up.

Oh my gosh I was just worrying about this in the shower this morning! I wouldn’t want to let the hair grow long enough to epilate or wax though – the bacteria that causes BO attaches to underarm hair, I don’t want to be smelly so I can wax! Any other suggestions??

I agree that exfoliation is the best way to go for dark skin area.

You can also use skin lightening/whitening products underarm. I personally don’t have much hair underarm..(maybe 2-3 per arm) so I just plug it so never got dark…

but had lots of problem on my elbow because of my job…it kept getting darker.

So I used whitening lotions/cream and applied it everyday. It helped quite a bit.

I just started using Dove Clear Tone deoderant. I haven’t used it long enough to tell you if it has worked for me…but there are a ton of reviews online saying it works!

I second the vote for epilation!  It’s a bit of an investment (I paid about $80 for a really nice epilator), but totally worth it.  But anyway, I have dark hair and light skin, and the epilator is a godsend!  Nice, smooth, white underarms.  It can hurt a bit at first, but you get used to it.  Now I just feel a slight tugging when I use it.

Also a plus, it actually can grab really short hairs.  I think just one or two days of hair growth would be fine for epilation.  Mine claims to be able to grab onto hairs as short as a grain of sand, and (for the most part), it does.

To get a closer shave, I shave dry.  No water, no shaving cream, no soap etc. But this only works for the armpits…other areas and you will get razor burn, obviously
