Many people have problems with dark skin areas, but this is normal and is called acanthosis nigricans. This happens to the skin due to aging and sun exposure. These problems appear on areas that do not have oil glands and the skin in these areas is prone to drying.
We should take special care for the skin in these areas because if we don’t it can get even worse. Armpits usually become dark because of the antiperspirant use or shaving and this can be very uncomfortable. So when you choose cosmetics be very careful even if it smells amazing.
