How To Lighten Those Dark Thighs

hhhbbnEveryone dies to have that perfectly flawless skin from head to toe but seeing those dark thighs exposed while either being intimate or wearing a bikini is totally embarrassing.

Several women have thighs which are darker than their overall complexion. One of the reasons this happens is when your thighs rub against one another, this usually happens when women tend to put on weight around their thighs.

Dark skin on the inner thighs is an embarrassing issue for both men and women. This even affects people who have fair skin. Obese people are most prone to having dark inner thighs than others because their thighs tend to rub against each other as they walk or exercise. It looks unhygienic to begin with and there are many things that can cause this such as obesity, skin chafing, dry skin, insulin resistance, etc.

However, if you do not have any of these things, then it must be something that you have been born with, so do not panic. This condition is not threatening and there are several ways to get rid of those unwanted dark areas. It is through naturally made remedies that you can easily follow and do at the comforts of your own home.

Almond oil, milk and honey: Is rich in vitamin E which is responsible for brightening the skin tone. Milk and honey prevent infection and also moisturise the area. Take 2 tablespoon of milk and 1 tablespoon of honey in it, add 1 teaspoon of almond oil also. Apply it on inner thighs and let it stay for 15 minutes, wash it off with water once it dries.

Lemon: The acidic property of lemon works as a natural bleaching agent for dark skin, the high vitamin C content also encourages new cell growth and is very good for the skin complexion. Apply lemon juice to your dark inner thigh using a cotton ball, leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water. Repeat 2 or 3 times per week, if you have sensitive skin dilute the lemon juice with water.

Alternatively, combine 1 tablespoon each of lemon juice and glycerin, add 1 teaspoon of rose water and mix well. Apply this pack on your inner thighs before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and rinse it off with warm water the next morning. Do this once daily. Lemon can dry out your skin so apply a moisturizer after using these remedies, avoid applying lemon on recently waxed or shaved thighs or if there are cuts.

Potato and tomato juice with honey: The juices act as natural bleaching agents but the juice of potato and tomato is suited for sensitive skin as well. If you have dark spots that refuse to go away, this is the perfect remedy for you. Honey will soothe the inner thigh area, peel half potato and grate it. Add tomato juice to it and 1 tablespoon of honey, apply the mixture on the inner thighs and let it dry. Then wash off with plain water.

Aloe vera: Has nourishing as well as antioxidant properties that help repair the skin and encourage skin rejuvention, it can even alleviate hyperpigmentation, fade dark skin patches and restore your skin’s original colour. Extract pure aloe vera gel from the leaf and massage it directly on the affected skin, allow it to sit for 20 minutes then rinse it off with warm water. Repeat once or twice daily for fast results or mix a few drops of almond oil in 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel. Apply this mixture on your inner thighs and massage gently until it is absorbed into your skin. Wait 15 minutes, then rinse your skin with water. You can use this pack 2 times a day.
