Dark underarms is usually due to activated pigment cells in local area, which are induced by factors such as obesity, diabetes, endocrine conditions, shaving or plucking underarms too often, and medications.

Skin care routine is important, such as cleansing, moisturizing, protection and exfoliation.

In TCM, darkened skin color is associated with blood stasis, the remedies will target on smoothing blood and qi circulation, and will select herbs like red sage root, fleeceflower root, rehmannia root, citron fruit, nutgrass rhizome and red rice bean.
