No one wants to talk about problems with their intimate areas, but maybe it’s a good idea to share knowledge and help each other out since we all have one.

One of the common problems for both men and women is dark skin in the pubic area. No one likes it and everyone wants to get rid of it quickly. But, is there a way to do this naturally? We have 6 ways which will lighten your dark pubic skin easily!

But first, let’s look closer at the condition. The darkening of the pubic skin is a condition called acanthosis nigricans which can also affect your armpits and neck. The discoloration may result in thicker skin, and can affect anyone. A dermatologist can tell you if the condition is serious.

Acanthosis nigricans is something that you can be born with, but diabetes patients, obese people and people with a glandular disorder may develop it as well. According to experts, some medications such as oral contraceptives can also cause the condition.

Here are a few suggestions on how to naturally relieve acanthosis nigricans:


Lemons contain citric acid which is great for skin lightening. Squeeze a lemon and massage the juice on the affected area, then wash it off with water after 10 minutes. Repeat the procedure for a month or two and you will be amazed by the results!

Sandalwood and rose water

Mix a teaspoon of sandalwood powder with 10 drops of water and apply the paste on your pubic area, leaving it to work for 20 minutes. Rinse with water in the end. Sandalwood powder can lighten and soften your skin, and the hydrating rose water bleaches the skin even further. Repeat the procedure 3 times a week.

Aloe Vera gel

Buy some Aloe Vera gel from a local store or take it directly from Aloe Vera leaves and massage it onto the affected area. Leave the gel to work for 20 minutes, then wash it off with warm water in the end. Repeat the procedure after each bath and your skin will lighten quickly.

Plain yogurt

Massage some plain yogurt onto the affected area and leave it for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water in the end. Repeat the process every day for a couple of weeks and you will be amazed by the results.

Orange juice and turmeric

Indian women have been using turmeric to bleach their skin for decades, but we have stumbled on the discovery just recently. Orange, like lemon and all citrus fruits, has amazing skin lightening properties which will whiten your skin easily. Mix two tablespoons of orange juice with a pinch of turmeric and apply the mixture on the affected area. Rinse with warm water after 20 minutes.

Gram flour

Make a paste of gram flour and a little water and apply it on the pubic area, then allow it to dry for a while and rinse with warm water in the end. Repeat the procedure 3 times a week for best results.

Instead of applying chemical creams which can harm your health, try using these natural remedies and you will be surprised by their incredible effects!
