How Do You Lighten Armpits?

To lighten armpits, dry orange peels and grind them into a powder to make a scrub. Make a paste by adding rose water and milk to the powder, use the mixture to scrub your armpits, and rinse off with cold water. Repeat this process three times a week.

  1. Cut the orange peels

    In order to make enough scrub to use numerous times, peel several oranges. Use a sharp paring knife to remove the pith and most of the white from the orange peel. Discard these parts.

  2. Set up the drying process

    Place the orange peels skin-side down on paper plates. Place these plates near a heat source to dry for two or three days. Skins can dry at room temperature, it just takes longer. Leave peels out until they are completely dry and even crunchy.

  3. Grind the orange peels

    Place the dried orange peels into a food processor. Process the peels at a high speed until a coarse powder forms.

  4. Mix the scrub

    Place 2 teaspoons of the orange peel powder into a small container. Alternate adding small amounts of rose water and milk until you have a thick paste.

  5. Apply the scrub

    Use your fingertips to apply the scrub to your armpits. Massage the scrub into the skin. Allow the paste to sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

  6. Wash away the scrub

    Use cold water to rinse away the scrub.
