You may have noticed that the skin of your intimate area is darker than the rest of your skin. The change of pigmentation in the body is completely normal and may be due to excessive increase of melanin, hair removal, sun exposure, and genetic factors.
Why is the intimate area darker?
It is normal for our skin to have different skin tones throughout the body because melanin does not settle everywhere similarly. Our hands are commonly darker because they are exposed to the sun’s rays for longer. Similarly, it is normal for other parts of your body, such as the buttocks.
The same happens with the vulva or the external area of our genital apparatus. Generally, this part of our body is darker than the rest, and this may be due to different factors:
Very tight underwear: the continuous rubbing of very tight underwear darkens the skin. That is why wearing comfortable clothes made of natural fibers such as cotton is better.
Menstruation: the blood we expel during each period can touch the skin of the vulva. The blood is rich in iron, so that the skin may darken slightly with each menstruation.
Age: as we age, the various aggressions on the skin, hormonal changes, friction, etc., cause the skin in this area to become darker.
Hormonal changes: women undergo many abrupt hormonal changes at certain stages of life, such as puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. These changes can affect the melanin and color of our skin.
Genetic inheritance: the color of our intimate area is related to our gene
Certain diseases such as polycystic ovary syndrome, gastric cancer, hypothyroidism, infections, or other disorders can darken the skin of the labia.
Blade hair removal irritates the dermis, activating melanin cells and causing skin darkening.
How can I lighten my intimate area?
The external vulvovaginal area requires special care due to its extreme sensitivity and special characteristics that differentiate it from other body parts. Therefore, the first thing to do is to consult your dermatologist.
With gradual lightening activity, the cream deeply moisturizes and rejuvenates the intimate area. It has been specifically formulated to counteract aging, sagging, and pigmentation changes in the external genital and vulva-perineal areas, restoring the area to its natural tone and appearance.
It contains an encapsulated lightning complex formed by a state-of-the-art liposome capable of penetrating and releasing Phytic Acid, Azeloglicina, Bisabolol, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), and Vitamin C in specific layers of the skin. It also has lightening, moisturizing, firming, and regenerating efficacy, and its slightly acidic pH does not alter the balance of the microbiome of the intimate area.
Some creams are also ideal as a complement to post-surgical treatments for genital rejuvenation and childbirth.
Spring break is near, and you should get ready to show off that much-loved bikini if you go to another pool party. This treatment is ideal if you want to look more attractive in intimacy. We recommend visiting a specialist before undergoing cosmetic treatment. You should not use homemade food or household products to lighten your skin. This can generate irritation and worse stains.
