Dark patches usually appear on the neck, armpits and inner thighs as a result of waxing, shaving, using deodorants and sun exposure. People suffering from diabetes, obesity or genitourinary cancer as well as people undergoing hormonal treatments are more exposed to the risks of dark patches on the skin.

In order to remove them, many people spend a fortune on cosmetic products that can supposedly eliminate them, but they’re often ineffective. However, there is a cheap homemade remedy which can get rid of them quickly! The remedy contains 3 simple ingredients – baking soda, olive oil and salt. It will eliminate the dark patches and make your skin younger, brighter and stain free. Here’s how to prepare it:


A tablespoon of olive oil

A tablespoon of baking soda

A tablespoon of salt


Mix the ingredients in a bowl until you get a creamy mixture, then apply it on the affected area and leave it to work for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water in the end.

You can also eliminate dark patches on your skin with a mixture of white clay, milk and lemon. Put the clay into a bowl and add the other ingredients, mixing well until you get a paste. Apply the resulting paste on the affected area and leave it to work for 15 minute before washing it off with cold water.


Repeat the process for 3 weeks for best results. During the treatment, you need to avoid sun exposure and use an appropriate cream with high UV protection. Also, you need to remember to drink plenty of water and eat vitamin E-rich foods

The olive oil used in the first remedy must be extra virgin, while the salt must be sea salt. Use skim milk for the remedy. You can add some coconut oil if you like.

Try the remedy yourself and you will be amazed by the results!
