Research shows that shaving is the most common cause is shaving. Why? The reason is quite anatomically obvious — when you shave hair under the armpits, you cut it from the surface of the skin, which may leave dark spots behind. This is why some people opt for waxing instead, since waxing removes the hair below the surface of the skin, and it won’t leave any visible traces.
Antiperspirants and deodorants are the next most common cause. Because they contain alcohol, and also chemicals, they may cause a reaction in your body, depending on your individual chemistry. People suffering from excessive sweating are more prone to dark armpits. The reason is simple. Their sweating makes the area a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

There is a reason why lemon is used in many skin-related problems. Rub a lemon wedge on your skin for a few minutes.
