A Beginner Guide to Choosing an Underarm Whitening Cream

A Beginner Guide to Choosing an Underarm Whitening Cream

Do you have an underlying fear of anyone catching a glimpse of your dark underarms? We all want spotless and flawless underarms especially during the summer season when we want to wear sleeveless clothes. You might have also searched for the best underarm whitening creams in India. So, here we are to shrug off all your worries so that you can flaunt your favorite attire this season. 

Why do your underarms turn dark?

  • The underarms are made up of sweat glands. Sweat glands are organs responsible for secreting sweat and sebum, thus keeping the local skin cells moisturized.
  • A buildup of dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria may trigger an overproduction of melanin, thus darkening the underarms. 
  • Your underarm skin is analogous to eyelid skin. It easily gets irritated that ultimately adds to pigmentation.
  • There could be a plethora of reasons behind your discolored skin such as melanin rich skin, pH due to hormonal imbalance, fungal and bacterial infections or medications.
  • It is certainly not a medical condition as it can be caused gradually by improper cleaning and accumulation of dead cells, shaving, excessive sweating, and using harsh cosmetics such as deodorants or creams which are unsuitable for your skin.
  • Persistent skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and fragrance allergy can prove to be a double whammy for your underarm skin.

So here is the beginners guide to choose the best underarm whitening cream;

  1. Your underarm whitening products which are cruelty-free, non-comedogenic, dermatologically tested with clinically proven ingredients. 
  2. The  product  should  lighten dark armpits but also exfoliates your dead skin cells to remove roughness and dryness, a stain-free formula that controls excessive sweating and provides long-lasting freshness. 
  3. It should maintain the hygiene of the underarm area and even tone your skin.
  4. Contains clinically proven active ingredients that help lighten dark armpits.
  5. Exfoliates dead skin cells to remove roughness and dryness in that delicate area.
  6. Controls excessive sweating and provides long-lasting freshness.
  7. Your underarm cream must be a dermatologically tested product.
  8. It should be formulated with flower extracts and free from chemicals. 
  9. Cruelty free formulation which is\ developed in a WHO-GMP certified facility.
  10. It should be free from sulfate, paraben and mineral oil.
  11. Suitable for both men and women with all skin types.

Do’s and Don'ts

  • In most cases, using a razor on this sensitive part of your body may sometimes lead to ingrown hair and inflammation. This would cause the skin in your underarms to appear darker than your usual skin tone. 
  • The situation may worsen with the lack of exfoliation, and a buildup of dead skin would make the underarms appear darker.
  • You should  exfoliate the underarms at least twice a week to slough away the dead cells and give way to new skin. Keeping all of these factors in mind,
  • After the exfoliation and masking come the last step- keeping the underarms hydrated. Ningen Bearberry  Underarm Cream helps to keep the underarms moisturized and hydrated without blocking the pores. 

How to use underarm whitening cream?

  1. Evenly distribute a dab of cream on the underarm region using your palms.
  2. Gently massage the cream into the area where it has been applied, enabling the skin to absorb it. 
  3. For optimum results, use the cream twice daily.

A Quick Glimpse into our Power Booster Ingredients of Ningen Bearberry Underarm Cream


Bearberry extracts is a powerful skin lightener; the arbutin in bearberry tells the enzyme tyrosinase to slow down the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its beautiful, natural color. It inhibits the maturation of melanosomes, the organelles that produce melanin.The arbutin in bearberry extract prevents your skin from pumping out the extra dose of melanin that’s giving you dark spots. As this extra melanin fades away, these darker spots slowly return to their original color. It is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties  


It fights inflammation, removes dead skin cells, pigmentation and blemishes. It is apt for sensitive and inflamed skin. It is also rich in skin-friendly phytochemicals including flavonoids and carotenoids.
