If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test by applying it on your forearm so as to assure you don’t have allergic issues. You can do it thrice a week.

-> While doing waxing of under arm, choose lipo wax or candle wax which gives an instant solution to tan. If you want quick results in appearance, you can choose this method above all.

Conclusion: In this post, it is clear that lemon juice, almond oil, curd and aloe vera are commonly used to treat paleness, tan, darkness etc. Yet I advise the reader to know if any of these ingredients (other ingredients too) are allergic to your skin. If you have doubt, you can also do a patch test before using a particular pack. I strongly recommend. Thank you.
