Saffron Skin Whitening Home Remedy

27th June 2015

Dark armpits are now some of the most common issues facing women of all ages. Many people feel embarrassed to wear clothing that shows off their underarms because of the dark stains that appear in this area over time. Many teenage girls have even been bullied as a result of this. However, underarm lightening techniques are now the new rage and have proliferated all over the net, offering many women a host of strategies that they can use right away to whiten the armpits. 

Natural armpit whitening techniques can take away all of the negative feelings that may be accompanying your condition. Using common household ingredients such as milk and a little spice, such as saffron, you can instantly eliminate dark armpits for good. You will also achieve the benefits of a more even skin tone as well as a more youthful, radiant complexion in your underarms. 

How to Use Saffron to Whiten Skin 

Saffron offers a two-fold punch to any underarm lightening regimen. First off, it kills any bacteria in the region making it just as powerful as any deodorant you are accustomed to using. Secondly, it works naturally to lighten up your underarms, causing any dark patches to go away virtually instantly. 

This skin whitening remedy works most effectively when it is mixed together with other whitening agents such as yogurt, milk or cream. This will also enable you to keep it on for the duration of the night, since it is not as abrasive as other household ingredients used for underarm lightening, such as lemon juice or vinegar. Rubbing such a paste into your skin for 2-3 minutes each day can do wonders for dark armpits and other areas of the skin. 

Keep in mind, however, that saffron is not the cheapest home remedy for skin whitening. The price of saffron has gone up in recent years, making it one of the most costly and rare of all spices. However, you will only require a pinch of it to already start gaining from its benefits and it is still far cheaper than many of the commercial creams and lotions available at your local drugstore. 

An Ounce of Prevention… 

While undergoing any exfoliation treatment, try to keep your perspiration to a minimum by avoiding rough sports or any tasks that require heavy exertion. Ideally, you should take some time away from antiperspirant usage so that healing can take place much faster. This may seem very hard to do, but remember that armpit whitening usually takes place quite quickly using such remedies and you will be able to go back to your regular lifestyle in no time at all. 

If you absolutely have to use deodorants, go for the ones that are gel-based and ideal for hypoallergenic skin. These are better for sensitive skin that is prone to darkening, as sticks and roll-on varieties can lead to a greater risk of skin irritation and rashes. You should also avoid plucking and shaving the skin so that exfoliation can occur in the most natural way possible without irritating the skin.
