Our inner thigh area and singit tend to be discolored, and this is most commonly caused by wearing tight underwear—something that no one can honestly really avoid. But if it's something that bothers you, here are a couple of at-home and professional remedies you can try:

1. First things first: Wear seamless panties to minimize chafing.

Thigh chafing may be unavoidable, but you can lessen the friction that causes your singit to discolor by investing in seamless underwear. Unlike regular panties, these aren’t lined with tight garters, so they keep your bikini line from becoming irritated when you move around.

2. Soothe and hydrate your singit.

Another thing you can try moisturizing your inner thigh. Make it a habit to apply a soothing aloe vera gel to the area. Doing so will reduce friction and will calm your skin down. P.S. Avoid applying scented creams or lotions on your singit as they will likely irritate it even more.

3. Exfoliate with a soap bar that's infused with fruit acids.

Exfoliation is key to fading the discolored areas of your singit. As you slough off the topmost layers of the skin, it will allow your brightening creams, oils to work better, too.

While scrubbing the skin with calamansi is known to even out discolored areas like knees and elbows, it can be too harsh for sensitive parts of the body like the underarms and the bikini area. The same goes for abrasive scrubs that typically contain microbeads. As an alternative, look for soap bars with exfoliating ingredients like kojic acid, glycolic acid, and fruit acids like vitamin C. When showering, leave them on for three minutes before rinsing the soap off to allow the ingredients micro-peel the top layers of your skin—sans the scrubbing.

4. Use natural oils to lighten your bikini area.

Sunflower beauty oil works amazingly in smoothening out rough 'chicken skin' on the armpits, but what most people don't know is it also has skin-brightening properties. Massage a few drops of sunflower oil on your inner thigh area before going to bed!
