like god fu-ked up and gave me the armpits of a black person by mistake.
it looks kinda gross and i'm embarrassed to show my pits cuz of it.
will skin lightening cream help out? maybe a bunch of exfoliation?
Samnang, have you tried changing your deodorant? Sometimes the darkening of underarms are the results from the usage of deodorant. Also, if you normally nix hair from your armpits, exfoliate 1 - 2 days before removing hair from your underarms, and instead of shaving (if you do do this
), invest in an epilator. An epilator will take the hair from it's roots, therefore making your armpits less dark. If you don't want to invest in an epilator, I guess you can try plucking it yourself.
Plus, some have found that wearing a lot of polyester/synthetic clothes causes friction which in turn causes skin to darken.
Also, I'm not saying you have/are either of these last 2 mentioned, but if you do have brown spots in other areas like your elbow, knuckles, knees, groin area, etc., this could be acanthosis nigricans, which may appear on people who has diabetes/obese.Diabetes.org
Anyhow, there are so much that you can explore. Good luck.
