Get Rid Of Dark Inner Thighs With These Seven Natural Products
Dark skin on the inner thighs can be experienced by anyone, regardless of skin tone. It occurs when the skin on the inner thigh produces an abundance of melanin, a pigment that gives the skin its colour. This is called hyperpigmentation. The discolouration of dark inner thighs may even stretch into the bikini or groin area.
Having dark inner thighs isn’t a health problem, but it can cause immense embarrassment. Usually, people who are obese have dark inner thighs because their thighs tend to rub against each other while walking and exercising. Other reasons for dark inner thighs include excessive sweating, poor hygiene, hormonal imbalance, using various hair removal techniques like shaving, and more.
While most of us tend to ignore this body part, it will feel more hygienic and morale-boosting when you do not have a body part which is of a different skin tone than the rest of your body.
Below are seven natural products and ways to naturally help you get rid of dark inner thighs.
Not only do lemons have exfoliating properties that help in removing skin impurities, but they also act as a bleaching agent which can help in lightening your skin. You can apply fresh lemon juice to your inner thighs, let it stay for around 20 minutes and then remove with a wet cloth. Do this at least thrice a week for effective results. People with dry and sensitive skin can, however, dilute lemon juice with water to prevent dryness.
Vitamin E-rich almonds are helpful for skin brightening, moisturising the dried skin and repairing damaged skin. Add honey and almond powder in milk to make a scrub paste. Apply the scrub to your inner thighs and let it dry for a few minutes. Remove it with wet fingers and rinse with cold water. Repeat thrice a week until you lighten inner thighs.
3. Coconut oil
Essential fatty acids in coconut oil help to lighten hyperpigmentation and fade away dark spots. Coconut oil also works as an excellent moisturiser. You can mix one tablespoon of lemon juice in coconut oil and apply on the inner thighs. Let it stay for around 10 minutes. You can do this every other day for effective results.
4. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has some amazing skin rejuvenating properties. It is also effective in lightening the inner thigh area as it alleviates hyperpigmentation. You can extract aloe vera gel from an aloe vera plant and apply it on the thighs, then massage until it gets absorbed in the skin. Rinse off with warm water and repeat twice or thrice daily for effective results.
