Brief Answer:
Skin lightening

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

The best way to get the vaginal and armpit area to be of uniform color is to get it bleached. Vaginal bleaching solutions are available in the market, please meet your doctor before using them. They give quick and lasting results.
Bleaching can also be done to the armpits.
I also suggest you to avoid using deodorants or any chemical products over the armpits to avoid darkening

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Please do not try at home

Hello

Thanks for getting back, I strongly recommend not to try bleaching at home as it involves sensitive areas. Please get to know of a professional who does it. The best way to reduce hair growth is by undergoing laser treatment for permanent hair removal
