Private areas are primarily dull and darker in colour than the rest of your body, and it makes people feel embarrassed while getting intimate with partners. But you do not need to worry about it as you will find many home remedies and over-the-counter treatments to help you lighten it. In this time of beauty consciousness, we find people looking for different options to make the private areas look attractive and healthy.
What are the Causes?
Your private parts are a very sensitive part of your body, and having health issues can have a serious physical and mental health impact. For example, the dark colour near the private parts is often linked to bad eating habits, hair removal creams, skin infections, smoking, tight clothes, ageing, heredity and obesity. This can often lead to a darker looking private area compared to the complexion of other parts.
Most people feel embarrassed if they have dark skin down there. So, they either look for cosmetics, beauty and skincare products or home remedies to brighten and lighten their intimate parts.
Three best home remedies you can bank on:
Yoghurt can maintain your intimate area health perfectly. It carries good bacteria, which, if applied topically, can balance the pH balance of your vaginal area. This keeps dryness, itching, and foul odour away.
Yoghurt is a perfect solution for all types of skin suffering. Vitamin B12 in yoghurt helps lighten your skin discolouration and brightens dull and dry skin.
How to Apply:
Take two tablespoons of organic yoghurt, one teaspoon honey, and one and a half teaspoon oatmeal (avoid the ingredient allergic to your skin). Mix all three ingredients properly and apply to the affected area. Leave the application for 10 minutes; remove it with light and slow circular motions with your fingertips after it gets dry. Finally, rinse with lukewarm water and do not forget to apply moisturiser immediately.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Apple cider vinegar has bleaching properties and is a very effective skin-lightening agent. It is beneficial to both health as well as skin in many ways. It contains citric, malic, acetic and amino acids and is rich in vitamins, enzymes, and mineral salts. All these properties are good for your skin. In addition, ACV can comfort your skin, making it soft and glowing. Moreover, it also balances the pH level of the private part, underarms and bikini line.
How to Apply:
Mix ACV with clean and filtered water. A few drops of essential oil can be added (optional). Take a cotton ball, soak it in the solution and apply it on your darkened private part area skin. Leave it for a few minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This mix can be used once or twice a day as per your comfort and need.
3. Aloe Vera Cucumber Mix
Aloe vera is a very popular skin disorder solution with several beneficial properties. It is very effective for intimate area skin lightening. Aloe vera is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B12 and many healthy minerals. The gel you get from the plant treats almost all skin problems. Mix it with cucumber and use it as a skin lightener and whitener.
How to Apply:
Take two small amounts of pure raw aloe vera gel and cucumber, mix it well (can take help of a mixer). Now, apply the combination to your affected area. Keep it for 15 minutes, then remove it in a gentle circular motion with your fingertips. Finally, wash the area with normal water. Do not use soap. You can use this daily for fast results.
