#SkinCare: Rice Flour Scrub - One Solution to Dark Armpits!

...ok, "almost solution", lol!

You need to do it severally to see results!

Making rice flour is as simple as ABC though.

It's amazing to know how much research goes into blogging. Most especially beauty blogging. You need to verify a lot of things before you put it out there for your readers, I'd like to say this post is one of those. Verification before processing.

I am a very lazy person. To be honest, making all these every time will weaken me, I'd just prefer it in the form of a soap so I can use once I am in the bathroom. lol!

But I know few dedicated people that will go all the way to see results and I am sure most of my readers are dedicated as well. So, this right here is for you!

The first step is measuring your desired quantity of rice into a blender.

Blend for 5-10 mins at intervals until you get your required consistency. It shouldn't be too powdery, you need a little bit of coarseness to enable you to scrub properly (and feel the skin literally peel off, lol).

The finished product should look like this.


Ingredients Needed
  1. Turmeric
  2. Lemon Juice
  3. Baking Soda
  4. OrangePeel Powder (optional)
  5. Rice Flour

Step 1:
Add Two tablespoons of rice flour into a bowl. Follow up with a teaspoonful of turmeric. I poured it directly because I am used to the measurements. Please make sure the turmeric isn't a lot as it stains one's clothing as well as sting.

Step 2:
Add a teaspoon of baking soda to the mixture.

Step 3:
Mix all three ingredients properly before adding the Lemon/ Lemon Juice. As seen below, the color of the Turmeric has dominated the rest of the ingredients. Now imagine if you used a lot of the turmeric. Not fresh at all. lol.

Step 4:
Baking Soda and Lemon naturally have a reaction when mixed together. Do not fret when you see this reaction, It is normal. 

Step 5:
Mix the whole mixture properly till it forms a paste. The consistency should be average. It shouldn't be too watery neither should it be too thick.

Step 6:
Get heated water and a towel, place the heated towel over your armpit - that opens up your pores. That's deep cleaning. 

Step 7:
Apply the rice flour scrub to your armpit and gradually scrub. Please don't be aggressive! Be gentle on it. Add more rice flour scrub if necessary.

Step 8:
Rinse off after 1hr. 

For faster results, get this scrub done twice a week and in between, use just lemon and warm water to clean your armpit up.

Also, avoid using deodorants of any type if you know you will be home. Lemon kills the bacteria that causes odor so you have nothing much to worry about. 

Shaving, using hair removal cream, sweating, improper underarm ventilation, accumulation of dead skin cells or alcohol based deodorants and antiperspirants are the major reason for dark armpits.

Instead of shaving, you can try waxing. I know it's painful but studies show that it's better than shaving as the hair grows back in the right direction as opposed using blades.

I hope you learnt a thing or two like I did.
