6 Ways To Lighten Up The Dark Skin On Your Private Parts Naturally!
Darkened skin in the pubic area is a common cosmetic issue for most people. But, while you can easily ignore it during the winter, when you are all covered up in layers of clothes, the summer is a completely different story, especially for women. I mean, we all know the importance of the bikini zone, don’t we?
Now, let’s take a look at the root cause for this condition. Skin discoloration in the pubic area, on the neck and armpits, is medically referred to as acanthosis nigricans (AN). This condition often results in thicker skin with a smooth, almost velvety touch. A quick visit to your dermatologist will determine whether the condition is serious. Acanthosis nigricans is prevalent in people of African descent.
AN can be inborn or caused by diabetes, obesity or a glandular disorder. A number of studies have also linked the condition to regular use of oral contraceptives.
If you are affected with this condition, there are several natural remedies that can effectively lighten the dark pubic skin area. All of the treatments are very low-cost as they use common ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Best of all, you can easily do these at home and avoid unpleasant dermatological treatments.
Lemon juice is abundant in vitamin C, which is a natural whitening agent. What you do is take some freshly squeezed lemon juice and rub it in the discolored area. Let it act for about 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water. You should see positive results in a month or two. It’s highly recommended not to shave or wax before the treatment as citric juice will further irritate the skin.
2# Sandalwood and Rose Water
These ingredients are easily available at any health food or Indian grocery store. The treatment includes mixing a spoonful of sandalwood powder with 10 drops of rose water. Apply this on your pubic area after bath then let it act for 20 minutes. Rinse off. Sandalwood powder has long been used for treating skin discoloration and improving skin tone. On the other hand, rose water is highly moisturizing and hydrating. Do the treatment 3 times a week.
3# Aloe Vera Gel

Apply some yogurt on the dark areas of your pubic skin massaging gently. Let it act for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Repeat the treatment every day for several weeks until you see results.
5# Orange Juice and Turmeric
Turmeric has been part of Indian women beauty treatments for years. The thing is this spice provides a wide array of skin benefits including skin whitening. On the other hand, oranges, just like lemons, are natural bleaching agents owing to their high citric acid content. When doing the treatment, you need to be extra careful about your clothes, as turmeric stains fabric. The method includes mixing 2 tbsps. orange juice with a pinch of turmeric. Apply this to your pubic area daily letting it act for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
6# Gram Flour
This ingredient, which is a trademark of Southeast Asian cuisine, is actually made of ground chickpeas.

What you do is make a thick paste by mixing some gram flour and a little water. Apply to the pubic area and let dry. Rinse off with water. Repeat the treatment 3 times a week.
Even though it may take a couple of weeks before you see the first results, your patience will be well worth it in the end. Natural remedies are completely safe and don’t cause skin irritations as chemical-laden commercial products do.
