Darkening of underarms and bikini areas can occur due to shaving, waxing, friction, antiperspirants, hormones, and genetics. This can cause embarrassment and affect confidence.

Whitening (underarms) Concern

The underarms and bikini region are prone to developing darker pigmentation for several reasons. Shaving and waxing frequently can cause the melanin-producing cells to become hyperactive leading to excess pigment.

What causes underarm darkening?

Skin irritation and friction from tight clothing rubs away the top layers and contributes to darker appearance over time. The aluminum salts in antiperspirants are also thought to stain the underarms.

Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy stimulate melanin production and discoloration as well.

Genetics play a major role too. Those with darker complexions have more active melanocytes so the underarms and pubic zone can be naturally darker.

Regardless of exact cause, dark underarms and bikini lines can make people reluctant to wear certain fashions like sleeveless tops or swimwear.
