There is a saying that the most kept secret is often the darkest. Unfortunately, for women, this is also true with our intimate areas. For some of us, the darkening of the pubic area happens as a result of pregnancy or aging. But for some, it has been dark for as long as they can remember. This condition can have serious impacts on a woman’s self-esteem, so it is important to try remedies to lighten the area. Lucky for us, there are some effective, low-cost natural ways to bleach our private area:
Try Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is known for its cleansing and bleaching properties. The acid found in vinegars help inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark color in skin. Since the bikini area is sensitive and apple cider vinegar is a strong solution, dilute it in water before applying. Do this twice a day, in the morning and evening, to get faster results.
Mix Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Baking soda is another power whitener and cleanser. It is so effective it’s even used to clean dirty floors, windows, furniture, and others. It’s also gentle enough to apply on skin. Just mix it with apple cider vinegar and you’ll get a fizzy paste. Let the paste cool for a while. Before you apply it on your private parts, make sure you wash and dry them. Apply the paste and leave it on until it dries up. Do this whenever you can, after morning and evening bath, and you’ll get quick results.
Natural ways to lighten skin is not complete without lemons. It is packed with bleaching and nourishing properties and can also shed dead skin cells off. Since lemon tends to be a bit too strong, you can add drops of it in water. If you want to exfoliate your bikini area, too, you can apply salt since it is a natural exfoliant. Do this as often as you can.
Milk is a gentle yet effective exfoliant and whitening product that will leave your skin hydrated and smooth. You can directly rub milk on your private areas or you can mix it with other ingredients like yogurt, rice, and/or turmeric powder.
