Sandalwood powder mixed with rose water is another excellent solution.
Dark armpits are also due to excessive sweat. However, if this is because of the dark color of the armpits, you should keep in mind that sweating is a way of eliminating toxins from the body, which is why you should not use products that completely prevent sweating.[/expand]
