Lemon is blessing
Lemon can treat a lot of skin problems besides it works as a bleaching agent for dark body parts. As it is very acidic and strong it should be mixed with oil or other ingredients , however for underarms it can be used in a raw form.

Alternatively you can mix lemon juice with honey and apply this mixture onto underarms. Leave it for 40 minutes and wash off. You will notice that skin on underarms has changed in color drastically.
One way is cutting cucumber roundels and rubbing them onto underarms directly. Keep rubbing until you feel that enough solution has been stick to the skin. Leave it for 15 minutes.
Second way is mixing cucumber juice with three drops of lemon and applies it onto the dark underarms for 30 minutes and washing off with lukewarm water. The bleaching agents will bring nice results.
Potatoes are Handy, too
