Here Are Effective Ways To Lighten Dark Inner Thighs, Bikini Area
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!

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.
Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.
And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.

Hello, I'm Isabel and I'm a foodie from the South. I love trying out new dishes and pastries in the Metro while I ask myself if it's worth the hype. During this pandemic, I've decided to keep my foodie dreams alive by supporting my friends and small food businesses.
Aside from ordering from them, I've also created my own food blog via Instagram to express my thoughts and positive reviews about them to somehow help spread the word of their food and how other people should try it. At the end of the day, we are all helping one another through this difficult time by having multiple coping mechanisms - others to cook or bake while I write a review about what I eat.
Check out my food blog on Instagram @perdiviews and feel free to send me a message so I can collaborate with you soon!
It's not making sense. Maybe, it is. Everything is so blurry and vague. You can't seem to fathom what's happening. You're lost and searching- searching for the meaning behind what ifs and what could have beens. But life, we give meaning to life as if it's a beautiful paradise. Indeed it is.
But why we feel so gloomy, so empty? It seems like no light is passing through our soul. We're wounded. Hoping for healing. That's because, we're living. We celebrate life but we also fight for it. You feel all the pain, because you're living. You're not just alive, you're living. You can make it through all the storm and darkness. Wishing you well, Marj.
