Singer Kelly Khumalo once came under major scrutiny when she was a guest judge on Idols SA after a photo of her dark underarms was taken and posted online.
Many people suffer from dark pigmentation on certain parts of their bodies and that is due to the deodorants they use or the waxing treatments they go for and for some, it’s because of medical conditions that lead to dark pigmentation.
Usually, people who are going through some hormonal treatments, people with diabetes, obese people, and those who are suffering from genitourinary or gastrointestinal cancer have these dark patches.
This simple treatment might be useful:
SALT, OLIVE OIL, AND SODIUM BICARBONATE
Baking soda (1 tbsp.)
Olive oil (1 tbsp.)
Salt (1 tbsp.)
Mix everything well together and apply it to the affected area. Leave it there for 20 minutes and then remove it with a lot of water.
You can also prepare a cream with lemon, milk, and white clay. Mix these three ingredients well and apply it on your skin. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it well.
No matter which treatment you will choose, do it three times per week until the patches disappear. Do not expose yourself to the sun without applying for UV protection. Eat food full of vitamin E and drink a lot of water. Use extra sea salt, virgin olive oil, and skim milk.
