Vaginal Bleaching Tips and Solutions

Updated on May 31, 2010

More and more people have been finding success with products such as South Beach Skin Lightening Gel for Sensitive Areas that are specially formulated for lightening sensitive areas

Vaginal bleaching is a sensitive topic that requires some caution as it affects one of the most sensitive areas of the body.  I want to start off by saying the vaginal bleaching is safe and can provide a cleaner, more natural feel.  However, there are some things that you need to be aware of before trying the procedure.

The process of lightening skin, while being a reasonably safe process, is not a natural process and anytime you do something unnatural there is the potential that your body will react.  This is especially important when it comes to lightening sensitive areas such as the vagina, anus, or nipples.  For this reason alone it's important to make a well informed decision and it's a good idea to contact a dermatologist before performing any vaginal bleaching techniques on your own.

That being said, vaginal bleaching can be a safe procedure and do-it-yourself vaginal bleaching is really quite as simple as applying a cream to the area you want lightened.  But before we get into which products work the best for vaginal bleaching, let's take a look at some of the dangers involved

As I mentioned before, the skin lightening process requires that you block the formation of melanin, which is a natural process of the skin.  Scientists have been researching this reaction for years, and have discovered a wide range of chemicals that will inhibit this reaction (Hydroquinone, Alpha Arbutin, Kojic Acid).  While all of these chemicals are very effective in blocking melanin formation, there are long term studies coming out which suggest that the chemical Hydroquinone is linked to increased chances of liver and thyroid damage and even leukemia.  For this reason it has been banned in numerous countries across Europe and Asia. 

In addition to the systemic dangers of these chemicals, there is also a risk that a sensitive part of the body, such as the vagina, can have an allergic reaction to some of these chemicals.  Because of this, it's important to test whatever product you choose with just a very small application before using the recommended dosage.

The Best Creams for Vaginal Bleaching

The best creams for vaginal bleaching are going to be ones that are specially formulated for sensitive areas. These creams, while slightly more expensive than normal skin lightening creams, have been prepared using natural ingredients such as vitamin B3, lemon juice, mulberry and bearberry extract, and licorice extract. They have gone through extensive testing to determine which formulation is best for sensitive skin.

One product that is getting glowing reviews is the South Beach Skin Lightening Gel for Sensitive Areas. Its praises include providing easy application and quick results. People have reported noticing a big difference in as little as a week, lightening the vaginal area and making it blend more evenly with the surrounding skin tone. The good news is that uses all natural ingredients that are safe for sensitive regions so there is a little chance of any reaction. The bad news is that it's a bit on the pricey side; but if you're seriously considering vaginal bleaching, then it's worth spending the money to do it right.

Understanding the potential hazards of vaginal bleaching is the key to doing it safely. If you do decide to use a bleaching kit at home make sure that you use one that has safe ingredients that are specially designed for sensitive areas and make sure to test the product out first. If you do notice any burning or discomfort for more than an hour, be sure to contact a doctor or dermatologist.

      sex is not all it's cracked up to be. I know how it feels when you think evreyone around you is doing it but the truth is if you believe in yourself and you know you want to wait then wait. There will be a guy for you out there somewhere but you do have your whole life to look forward to. I've been in situations where my boyfriend (now ex-boyfriend) wanted to have sex and he wouldn't stop asking me, then one day i realized if he loved me he would keep asking me to do something I don't want to do I broke up with him and now I'm dating a wonderful guy I olan to marry if we are still together. Just wait girl.

      Nobody's gonna see it except your partner. If he can't except you for who you are, then you shouldn't be his partner.

      I am also concerned over the incorrect use of the term "vagina" in this article; it is simply incorrect. The vagina is composed purely of mucosal tissue which by definition contains no melanin nor any other pigmentation (except in pathologic conditions). Once the epithelial border is reached, where there may be pigment present, this then transitions into the region known as the vulva, and includes the labia minora and labia majora.

      Mlle, You are correct, I am referring to the external part of the female genitalia. However, most people who are looking to perform this sort of cosmetic alteration aren't searching for "vulva bleaching" but rather "vaginal bleaching". I do appreciate the clarification, thank you for your comment.

      I really hope you mean to say "vulva" instead of "vagina". Vulva refers to the external, visible area of the female genitalia. The vagina is the actual birth canal, into which one inserts a tampon, or which a doctor needs a speculum to examine. The vagina is not visible from the outside.
