Darkness in the butt and bikini area is very familiar and somewhat embarrassing. Beach season is knocking on the door and the time is just right to do something about the problem.
If you want to avoid skin whitening chemicals and expensive cosmetics, you can try several straightforward and inexpensive home remedies. I have tried the majority of these products, and I can confirm that they have an all-natural skin lightening effect.
To prevent darkening or to reduce pigmentation, you can also try these preventive measures:
- Wear loose fitting, cotton underwear. Cotton prevents excess sweating since it does not absorb much heat.
- Avoid shaving the pubic area or using hair-removal lotions. Shaving damages the skin, causing scarring and darkening of the area. Hair-removal lotions have chemicals that can damage sensitive skin. Waxing to remove hair offers a better alternative and will not lead to discoloration.
- Use an unscented, non-acidic, mild soap for cleaning the area between the thighs.
- Eat a healthy diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, wholegrain cereals, and lean meat. Avoid fatty foods to maintain good skin.
- Drink lots of water which can flush out toxins and keep the skin smooth and hydrated.
- Use sunblock with at least SPF 30 to prevent exposed skin from darkening.
Here’s the few Natural Skin Whitening Ingredients that you can Try:
① Lemons or Oranges
Citrus fruits like lemons and oranges are a wonderful source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is included in the composition of skin whitening creams because of its unprecedented ability to affect hyper-pigmentation.
Both the peel and the juice of citrus fruits can be used to lighten dark spots. Make sure you put sunscreen on the treated areas because they will become quite photo-sensitive after the treatment. Repeat the procedure until you get the desired bikini area whitening result.
Lemon treatments are also incredibly beneficial for the skin. Lemon “pulls out” dirt from the pores and it helps regulate sebum secretion. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that maintains the skin’s plump and youthful look.
This type of treatment is best suited for oily skin. Lemons and oranges have somewhat drying qualities that could irritate skin that is already dry and sensitive. Apply on a small test patch to figure out how your skin reacts to the treatment.
What To Do:
It can be used in two ways: either take it’s juice out and use it as a serum or use its skin and rub it in the dark spots on your butt or inner thighs area.
When buying lemon or orange, make sure that you get a “fresh” ones so that you can take advantage of its high acidic properties that contribute to skin whitening.
Keep it on your skin for 20 minutes or longer.
Calamansi or calamondin is a small, lemon-like fruit that has a relatively high acidity and can be used for skin whitening.
Calamansi is very closely related to tangerines, and it is another fantastic source of vitamin C that’s high in acidic properties that are also known to whiten the skin actually.
It’s a green-colored fruit that’s in the lemon family, but it’s much smaller. The plant is a native of the Philippines, but it is sold in many parts of the world.
What To Do:
Same procedure as the lemons as you can once again use the fruit’s juice or the peel to get the desired skin whitening effect.
The process is entirely safe for daily repetitions. Let it sit for 20 minutes or longer, if you have time.
The delicious and aromatic papaya is another great option for removing dark spots and excessive pigmentation from the bikini area. It’s been used extensively on skincare products like soaps, toner, lotions, creams, masks, etc.
I’ve been using a whitening soap with papaya on my dark inner thighs, and I can tell you that it’s really effective.
The fruit contains a natural enzyme known as papain. Apart from being incredibly beneficial for the skin, papain can also be used to make skin whiter.
The manner in which this happens involves the natural exfoliating properties of papain.
As the old layer of skin peels off the surface, a new layer will be revealed. This new skin will look much brighter and healthier than the old one.
Several studies suggest that eating papaya on a regular basis could also contribute to overall skin brightness. Papayas are an excellent source of various essential vitamins, which means their consumption will improve complexion, remove blemishes and dark spots from the skin.
What To Do:
You can take advantage of the papaya’s skin whitening properties by taking out the inside of the fruit and rubbing it in your dark butt or inner thighs. Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing.
The tomato is another wonderful source of vitamin C that will lighten your skin without side effects and irritation.
Rubbing a little bit of tomato juice in the bikini or butt area will be sufficient to change the color of excessively dark skin. This type of treatment is extremely inexpensive, as well!
If you want to enhance the results of tomato treatments, and you are looking forward to getting whiter skin quickly, you can mix equal parts of tomato and lemon juice.
What To Do:
You can use it the same way like how you’re going to use lemons on your skin.
You can rub it on the dark spots in your buttocks and bikini line, and you’re all set. You should leave it on for 20 minutes.
You may also try commercial products which contain natural lightening ingredients such as:
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
- L-glutathione soap
- Papaya soap
- Kojic soap
① Keep in mind that all of these treatments are chemical-free. As a result, they will need more time to deliver noticeable results.
② Using natural skin whitening products on a daily basis, however, will give you an opportunity to see a significant change in the color of bikini, inner thigh and butt skin with time.
③ If you want to enhance the action of the whitening ingredients, you can use a homemade scrub to exfoliate the areas you want to treat.
④ Regular removal of the dead skin cells can help you get faster results. Still, you will need a couple of months to achieve the degree of skin whitening you are hoping for.
⑤ Get started today if you want to make sure that you will be perfectly ready for the beach!
But your main question is, how long before I start seeing my butt or bikini area white after using these home remedies? That’s a great question!
Here’s an honest answer: It will take quite sometime. I’m talking about maybe six months or more before you start seeing your butt and inner thighs whiter/lighter if you use these natural ingredients every day.
Unfortunately, home remedies like what I’ve mentioned above will not whiten your dark areas fast. Therefore, if you’re planning to go to the beach and wear a bikini for a week, then these natural remedies are not suitable for you.
