Growing up, I used to think having truly even, white underarms was an impossible dream.
They seemed to be a myth made up by the bigwigs of media who created all these unattainable beauty standards for women. Every time I spotted a picture of a celebrity with smooth underarms, I would stare with envy. My friends always told me it was just a trick of Photoshop and alterations. But I continued to look for ways to attain that picture-perfect state myself. I tried all the advertised whitening products imaginable—creams, lotions, even deodorants—but none of them made my pits as white and smooth as promised. I started to think that maybe my friends were right.
Until I started looking at remedies beyond the ones sold commercially (i.e. home treatments). Once I began looking into peels and lasers done by professionals, I knew the dream of smooth and white underarms was actually attainable. What them for yourself? Here’s a quick roundup of all the treatments you can try.
1. Aesthetic Institute of the Philippines’ Green Peel Whitening, now 64% OFF!
This treatment not only whitens underarms, but it also exfoliates dead skin cells and dull layers of skin which leaves the underarms brighter and feeling much softer and more supple. It’s also a mild treatment, making it safe for people with sensitive skin since it doesn’t damage skin or cause burns.
