How to Brighten Your Underarms For Summer

Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to bring out those tank tops, swimsuits, and sundresses. But if you're feeling a bit self-conscious about dark underarms, don't worry—Bushbalm has you covered with a brightening routine that will have you glowing with confidence all season long.

Understanding Underarm Discoloration

Dark underarms can be caused by various factors, including shaving, friction, sweat, and the buildup of dead skin cells. While it's completely normal, many of us strive for an even skin tone to feel our best. The good news is that with the right products and a consistent routine, you can achieve brighter, smoother underarms.

Step 1: Exfoliate with Radiant Reset Exfoliating Toner Pads

Exfoliation is key to removing dead skin cells and preventing buildup that can lead to discoloration. Bushbalm’s Radiant Reset Exfoliating Toner Pads are perfect for this job. These pads are infused with a powerful blend of AHA, BHA, and TXA:

  • AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid): Helps to exfoliate the skin’s surface, improving texture and radiance.
  • BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid): Penetrates deep into pores, reducing buildup and preventing ingrown hairs.
  • TXA (Tranexamic Acid): Brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of dark spots.

By using these toner pads 2-3 times a week, you’ll help keep your underarms smooth and radiant. Simply swipe the pad over your clean, dry underarms and let the ingredients work their magic.

Step 2: Treat with After Dark Brightening Gel

After exfoliating, it’s important to follow up with a targeted treatment. Enter Bushbalm’s After Dark Brightening Gel. This powerhouse gel contains 3% Tranexamic Acid and 2% Niacinamide, two ingredients known for their brightening and soothing properties:

  • Tranexamic Acid: Reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tone.
  • Niacinamide: Soothes inflammation, reduces redness, and improves the skin’s barrier function.

Apply a small amount of the After Dark Brightening Gel to your underarms daily. Its lightweight, non-greasy formula absorbs quickly, making it perfect for both morning and nighttime use.

Step 3: Moisturize and Protect

To maintain the results of your brightening routine, it’s essential to keep your underarms moisturized and protected. Use a gentle, hydrating moisturizer to keep the skin soft and supple. Additionally, if your underarms will be exposed to the sun, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to prevent further darkening.

Tips for Maintaining Bright Underarms

  1. Shave Carefully: Use a sharp razor and shaving cream to minimize irritation and avoid friction.
  2. Wear Breathable Fabrics: Choose natural fibers like cotton to reduce sweat and friction.
  3. Stay Consistent: Regular use of exfoliating and brightening products will yield the best results. We'd recommend using Bermuda Dark Spot Oil and Bermuda Dark Spot Exfoliating Scrub
