I am now a few months into the waxing underarm hair in an effort to lighten my dark armpits. I have been waxing every time the hair grows and have not used a razor or depilatory cream since last year.
You might remember my adventures in dealing with a dark underam area as listed below:

F*$#@% Up My Armpits
Those were just a few of my adventures in trying to get my armpits to look like the rest of my skin and not a nasty patch of black, rough troll skin.
Now here is a pic of my left armpit on March 1st.....need to wax again, hee hee.
I finally got a digital camera so I can take better pictures instead of using the ones from the phone. So here is the left armpit taken about one year ago. I know it is hard to compare the two since one is a clearer image but that is all I have right now.
I do notice that when I wax some skin flakes (I guess) come off and I can see little dark patches on the wax strip. I guess this is the exfoliating part they talk about that will help with lightening the skin.
What I CAN tell you is that Lemon juice does NOT work. It burned and did not have any lightening effect.
This is so disgusting and not very Diva like at all.
I am now using a lightening cream with 3% Hydroquinone called Nadinola. I really hope this works because it is my last resort.
As always I will keep you guys in the loop. Has anyone had success with anything they have used?
