How to whiten your armpits | 2021

Why would you want to tan your armpits anyway? If you want to make sure your skin tone looks natural, neutralize it by tanning under your arms.

If you want to tan your armpits naturally, the best way is to do it outdoors on a sunny day. Lie on the pool deck, raise your arms, and let the sun shine UV rays on your armpits for about half an hour, depending on the intensity of the sun’s rays

This natural method is the way to go in tropical climates with almost always sunny weather. But, depending on your location, you can also try alternative methods, which are also very effective and fairly easy to implement.

Self Tanning Creams

In order to use self-tanners, you need to do some research on the best ones available in stores or online. Once you have decided which type best suits your needs, you can begin the process by following these steps before applying lotion to your body:

  • Shave the underarm area before application.
  • Exfoliate the armpit area well a few days before application
  • Use an effective moisturizer every day starting a week before application

You want to exfoliate and moisturize your armpit area, so that it can remove all the dead skin cells that are preventing your skin from absorbing the tanning lotion.

Once you have completed these steps, you can start applying lotion to tan your armpits. The whole process takes time, and requires a great deal of dedication and patience, to ensure that you are using a safe indoor tanning technique. Keep applying the self-tanning lotion to your armpits for several days, until you see the results you want.

Bronzer or airbrush

This indoor technique usually requires a visit to a nearby tanning salon. Most salons can apply bronzer that gives you an instant tan on any part of your body you want. Or you can choose to use an airbrush, which is fine if you plan on tanning your entire body. In this case, since you are only interested in tanning the armpit area, you can choose either method.

The nebulizer technique basically works by having a technician spray the tanning solution on a specific part of your body. You can raise your arms and get an instant tan on your armpits, without much effort or pain – unlike sometimes with natural sunlight.

tanning bed

The last technique we will be discussing is a tanning bed. To tan your armpits with a tanning bed, lie down with your arms open either up or down on the tanning bed. Adjust intensity, and stay in bed for 20 minutes until you get the color you want.

A downside to using this method is that most of your body gets tanned, rather than just the part you want it to. The intensity of tanning beds varies, and it is always important to use a tanning lotion specifically made for use with tanning beds.

These are the three options available for underarm tanning, in addition to natural sun tanning. Take the proper precautions for each method, and enjoy the benefits of tanning either naturally or indoors responsibly.
