The Doctors: Can You Use Lemon To Lighten Your Underarms?
The Doctors wanted to find out the real deal of a popular DIY beauty trend found on Pinterest. Does lemon juice really work to lighten dark underarms? Supposedly you can lighten your underarms just by rubbing your armpits with lemon slices, or a combo of lemon juice and baking soda. The Doctors suggested you avoid the DIY treatment, explaining that it can cause a very uncomfortable skin condition and even burns from the acids in the fruit. If you have discoloration, talk to your doctor for a real treatment. If you see a darkening of your skin, it can be a sign of insulin resistance or diabetes.
