Easy, inexpensive remedy for dark underarms


BELOUnderarm Whitening Cream

I used to get tons of mail from readers who had dark underarms. I wasn’t much help to them because I, too, suffered from the condition. I had skin discoloration, and the dermatologist said it was because I was allergic to shaving.

When I started laser treatment, my underarm became of the same color as the rest of my skin. Unfortunately, when I got pregnant it darkened again, and it took awhile before it got back to its original color.

I do know how embarrassing it is to have dark underarms. I am sure most of the women who have it shave their armpits. Laser hair removal can really be costly.


PHYTO Secret De Nuit, available at Rustan’s

So I was excited when I saw Belo’s underarm whitening cream. Although I haven’t tried it, since I don’t need it anymore, I know Belo won’t be putting out a product that doesn’t work. I use the Belo toner when I feel my skin is a bit oily, and I love it!

So, for every woman who has to think twice before using a sleeveless blouse, this is the product you have to buy now! I’m sure it will take a while before you see the effect, but soon enough, that discoloration will be a thing of the past.

Regenerating night cream

My hair has been so dry from all the coloring I’ve made it go through. Just a week ago, I had my hair treated, but I’m still not happy with the texture. Luckily, I was sent Phyto Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream. I tried it, and guess what? I woke up with the softest hair.
