Treat Dark Armpits With a Chemical Peel

What causes dark armpits?

Dark armpits usually aren’t anything to worry about. Typically skin under the armpit is the same as the rest of the body, but there are some factors which contribute to a darkening of the armpit’s skin.

The skin’s pigmentation is caused by melanocytes, if the number of these increase, then the skin will darken. This happens more often with darker skin tones.

Factors that contribute to dark armpits include:

  • obesity
  • diabetes
  • hormones
  • medication

Habitual factors can also cause underarm hyperpigmentation, such as the products you use and how/ if you remove underarm hair.
