How to Get Rid of Dark Underarms, the (Affordable) Belo Way

By Steph Esguerra-Olarte for Belo Medical Group on March 1, 2021

We’re sure it wasn’t just us who felt the temperature rise in the last few days. From chilly, cozy days, to sunny, humid ones, we all know what that means. It’s sleeveless tops season! We can finally bring out those tank tops and bikinis and enjoy the sun, just like Belo Baby Maine Mendoza.

Only one problem (or two), though. If you’ve got dark underarms, it’s not going to be easy to rock that cute summer outfit. And while there are laser treatments and exfoliation treatments available to brighten pits, not everyone can afford them. No worries. We share with you pocket-friendly ways to lighten those problematic areas, the Belo way. 

Before we jump right in, it’s important to know what causes dark underarms in the first place. An enzyme called Tyrosinase is responsible for producing melanin, or those natural pigments that determine the color of our skin. 

Belo Prescriptives Tyrosinase Inhibitor 5% 10G

From the name itself, Belo Prescriptives Tyrosinase Inhibitor inhibits or blocks your body’s production of tyrosinase, nipping the cause of dark pits in the bud. Basically, it zaps pigmentation and evens out your skin color. Not only is it a bleaching cream that you can apply on your pits, but on your entire body as well. How’s that for a multi-tasking product? And for just P650, it’s definitely worth every peso. 

It’s made up of three ingredients that are known for packing a punch in the skin lightening department—arbutin, kojic acid, and vitamin C. Arbutin is a plant extract and a tyrosinase inhibitor that’s commonly used for hyperpigmentation, while kojic acid is a chemical made by certain types of fungi and another tyrosinase inhibitor. Vitamin C, of course, an antioxidant, is known for naturally brightening the skin, boosting collagen production and protecting the skin from harmful free radicals.

Belo Prescriptives Illuminating Cream 250G

Another pit-whitening product available is the Belo Prescriptives Illuminating Cream. Used primarily to lighten and fade blemishes, it can also be applied to the underarms to get you tank top-ready. So how exactly does it work? It’s a super rich and luscious body cream that reduces the production of melanin in your body. Since you won’t have as much of the pigments that control your skin color, the result is the revelation of brighter, more youthful-looking skin. A 250g tub for P3,600 already goes a long way to whiten your underarms, making it a beauty stash item worth investing in.

While you can always buy these two products separately, imagine if you used the two of them! Not only are you getting to the root of your underarm problem, but you’ll also benefit from the skin rejuvenating and antioxidant benefits of the ingredients. If you’re willing to splurge, the Belo-It-Yourself Armpit Perfecting Kit includes both for only P3,800 (you save P450!)

The Belo Prescriptives Tyrosinase Inhibitor and Belo Prescriptives Illuminating Cream are both available at the Belo Shop.
