The Complete Handbook for Intimate Care

Many of us have probably been in a situation where we find the perfect sleeveless top at the store but feel uneasy wearing it due to our dark underarms. Back then, we might have really hated our bodies, but did we ever stop and wonder why they were dark?

Let's Dive Into The Reason

Your intimate areas are always going through a lot of friction. This is because your inner thighs or underarms are always rubbing against each other, which ends up triggering hyperpigmentation due to the friction between skin cells.

In addition to this, there are also other usual suspects for darkened intimate areas, including poor ventilation, sweat, frequent shaving, hormonal fluctuations, or even wearing tight-fitting clothing.

Have You Been Stressed About This?

If you've been stressing about this, you can stop worrying now.

This is completely normal, and you're not alone. Most of us are victims of this harmless problem but its impact is different for everyone.

The main factor influencing the darkness of your intimate area is your natural skin tone. Those with a lighter skin tone might seem to have darker intimates, while for those with dusky skin tones, their discolouration is not too visible.

When Should You Be Worried?

While this is not something you need to worry about, certain occurrences require special attention.

If you notice a sudden colour change, there is a possibility that a medical condition is triggering it. Likewise, if the darker area itches, it is usually a sign of inflammation that has risen due to an infection or allergic reaction.

Sometimes, darkness that occurs along your underarms or neck is associated with high blood pressure or even diabetes.

The sudden onset of bumpy, spotted or scabby darkness might even be because of a sexually transmitted disease. So, whenever something does not seem right, it is best to fix yourself an appointment and check thoroughly.

Not Just Your Intimates

This skin darkness is not just limited to your intimates. It is normal for you to have darker skin in areas like the inner thighs, elbows, knees, underarms and neck.

Areas on your body that tend to fold, like your elbows, knees, and knuckles, are especially prone to pigmentation.

In addition to that, when there is a hormonal change happening in your body and things are a bit chaotic on the inside, certain areas might darken as a result.

The Right Intimate Care

Here are some simple steps that you can follow to make sure that you don’t add up to the darkening:

  • Pick clothes that fit well or are loose rather than tight-fitting
  • Select undergarments that are not tight
  • Wear clothes made from materials that allow your skin to breathe freely
  • Skip harsh hair removal methods like shaving or waxing
  • Avoid wearing sweat-wicking clothing like sweatshirts

How To Lighten Dark Intimate Areas?

You should cherish your body with the confidence and pride it deserves. However, if you find yourself deeply uncomfortable with the pigmentation of your intimate areas and seek a safe and gentle method to lighten them, you've come to the right place.
