All you have to do is mix 2 tsp of besan or gram flour, a tbsp of coconut oil, half tsp of baking soda, a pinch of turmeric along with aloe vera gel. Now squeeze half a lemon and mix to form a thick paste. Apply the paste on your underarm area and wait. Once it is slightly dry, rub the half cut lemon you squeezed and wash it with cold water.

Do this 2-3 times in a week for optimum results.

Coconut oil and lemon juice work great as natural lightening agents, while aloe vera and turmeric have anti-bacterial properties that suck out the gunk and keep bacteria at bay. Additionally, besan works as an excellent scrub to deal with dead skin cells.
