They are not called private parts for nothing, they are personal and private and most of us are ashamed of talking about this area. But let`s be real, we all have one, so why not share the knowledge we have about certain problems and help one another.
One common problem no one likes to talk about is dark and uneven skin ton on our private parts. If you are a woman, you`ll almost certainly want to get rid of this problem. Is there some natural and safe way to achieve this?
The answer is: YES!
Before we talk about the cure, let`s see what`s causing this problem. The American Academy of Dermatology says that the medical term for this condition is acanthosis nigricans (AN), which can also appear on the armpits and the neck, besides the groins. The skin gets darker and thicker, smooth to the touch. The condition should be examined by a dermatologist, in order to establish how serious it is.
This aesthetical problem usually affects healthy people, mostly of the African descent. Either you are born with this condition or you`ve developed it later in life.
AN can be a result of diabetes, glandular disorder or obesity. Also certain medications, like oral contraceptives, can cause dark skin on the groin area. AN affects great number of people, so don`t be afraid and ashamed to talk about it and ask for help.
Here are some natural things you can use to lighten the darkened skin. Take some time and try some of them, lying down so that the remedy can stay put and have the desired effect.
Aloe Vera gel: This plant has been used for very long to treat skin discoloration. Squeeze the gel from the leaves of the plant or buy some 100% pure and natural gel. Massage the affected areas and let it act for 20 minutes, then wash it off. Feel free to use this treatment before every shower.
Lemon: Citric juice is a bleaching agent, not only for your summer blonde highlight, but for the private parts as well. Massage the affected area with some freshly squeezed lemon juice, let it act for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Avoid shaving this area before the massage because it will sting. In 1-2 months the skin tone will be more even and lighter.
Turmeric and Orange juice: Indian women have known for ages about the amazing properties of the turmeric powder, one of them to lighten the skin. On the other hand, oranges (like lemons) are a natural bleaching agent. Mix 2 tablespoon of orange juice and a pinch of turmeric powder, apply on the affected skin and let it act for 20 minutes, then rinse off. Be careful with the turmeric, it stains fabric.
Yogurt: Use only plain yogurt, not the sweet ones containing fruit. It has incredible bleaching properties, plus, it acts soothing. Just apply some yogurt with a massage on the dark skin parts and let it act for 15 minutes, then wash it off. Repeat the treatment every day, before your shower, and the results will be visible in couple of weeks.
Gram flour: Another healthy bleaching option is the Southeast Asian staple made from ground chickpeas. It is very effective in lightening and exfoliating the skin. Add some water to it to get a thick paste and apply it on the affected parts, let it dry and then remove it with warm water. Repeat the treatment 3 times a week and soon you`ll see positive results.
Sandalwood and Rose water: Both ingredients can be found in any Indian grocery. Make a mixture from 10 drop of rose water and 1 tablespoon of sandalwood powder. Apply the paste on the affected areas and let it act for 10 minutes, then wash it off. Repeat the treatment 3 times a week. These two ingredients will lighten the skin and make it softer as well.
These natural solutions are perfect for lightening the skin on your private parts because this area is very sensitive and chemical products can easily irritate it or even cause bigger problems. That`s why these natural methods have been used for generations. Chose some of these suggestion, try it and be patient, the results will appear.
