I have no idea why I have dark underarms. I bathe and scrub twice a day and I use a whitening deodorant (Nivea). I thought it was the hair at first, but even after I shaved the color remained the same. I tried plucking. The same happened.
I noticed that other girls my age (that I personally know of) have this issue as well, some even appear to have more severe conditions than mine. But then, all those teen celebrities I see on television of magazines seem to have perfectly normal, even toned armpits. Am I missing something? Do these celebs have certain secrets of do I and all my female teen acquaintances just have unhygienic practices?
Also, what could be causing my parts of my clothes near my underarms to stain? Is it my sweat or my deodorant? It's very embarrassing, plus almost everyone now thinks I don't take a bath or something.
Thank you for your time and more power.
