Our Tips For How To Say Goodbye To Hyperpigmentation Along Your Bikini Line
Apply A Skin-Brightening Topical Product
Vitamin-A derivatives like retinol, mandelic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid can quicken cell turnover, replacing old, pigmented skin with new, lighter skin.
To amplify the lightening effect, pair these products with other brighteners like vitamin C, kojic acid, or hydroquinone, or try dark spot correctors and lightening serums.
For a DIY skin-lightening remedy, try applying a mixture of yogurt and gram flour like a light skin mask. Lemon juice, with a high citric acid content, makes another ideal choice.
Hyperpigmentation results from the overproduction of melanin, which you can reduce by exfoliating. It accelerates cell turnover and helps you shed old skin to make way for the new.
The pubic area is sensitive, so avoid chemical exfoliants. Gently scrub it against the vulva skin before shaving in a circular motion and rinse off after four or five minutes.
Dermamelan Peel
Dermamelan peels are non-invasive, effective treatments for pigmentation issues in the long run such as sun damage, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, and cloasma.
One 45-minute session is required and any swelling will reduce in five to seven days, so wear loose clothing in the meantime. Results should be seen within three months.
Laser Treatment Or Microdermabrasion
Laser treatment is the fastest way to treat hyperpigmentation. It removes damaged skin cells and promotes new skin growth, though multiple sessions are needed to see improvement.
Microdermabrasion buffs away dead skin cells using microscopic crystals and suction that brighten complexions and reduce ingrown hairs. It works best coupled with other methods.
Shave with care to prevent dark spots and ingrown hairs. If your pubic hair is long, trim it with a bikini trimmer or scissors and avoid dull blades by changing them regularly.
Soak your bikini line in warm water for five minutes to hydrate your skin and soften your hair. When shaving, use steady strokes to shave in the direction of hair growth.
