The 8th Day of Christmas DIY Natural Beauty Tips
On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me perfect armpits!
Day 8: Lighten dark underarm area
Did you know you can lighten embarrassing darkened underarm skin with a potato?! Kinda weird, right? Not only are potatoes the worlds most deliciously versatile vegetable (hello fries!) they also work as a natural bleaching agent. What can't they do?!
It might feel strange, but applying potatoes to your pits on a regular basis will lighten your underarm skin. Potatoes boast an enzyme called catecholase, which helps restore even colour to easily irritated skin. In other words, it's perfect for your pits.
Dig through your kitchen for a raw spud before rinsing and grating a quarter cup of it into a bowl -- no need to peel it. Over a sink or easily cleaned surface, apply the potato paste like a mask for your underarms. Leave it on for about half an hour.
