Home remedies for dark buttocks

One of the most common causes of pigmentation or dark patches on the skin around the buttocks and inner thighs is chafing. The constant friction of the skin can cause the skin to darken. People who are overweight, especially around the thighs and buttocks, often face this problem. Sudden weight gain can also lead to stretch marks that occur due to a breakdown of the skin layers. Stretch marks can lead to purplish discoloration in certain areas of the skin. Another possible cause of dark patches may be intake of birth control pills. Skin pigmentation is a common side effect of these pills. Dark areas may sometimes develop due to a skin condition known as acanthosis nigricans. Here pigmented areas occur especially in the skin folds. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may also be prone to developing pigmented patches on the body.

In case you are experiencing any other symptoms, it is advisable to consult your doctor to rule out any underlying disorder. In other cases, natural remedies may be helpful in alleviating the problem. Lime juice is a popular natural remedy for lightening dark patches on the skin. You may add a small amount of olive oil to lime juice and apply on the affected areas. Vitamin E oil is another good home remedy for skin pigmentation. Cocoa butter is also helpful in treating pigmentation and stretch marks. Massage the butter into the affected areas regularly for best results. Aloe vera gel, an age-old natural treatment for many skin problems, may also be used to lighten the pigmented skin and also relieve itching or burning caused by frequent friction when the thighs rub against one another. Natural exfoliating remedies such as oatmeal are helpful in getting rid of dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin. The new skin that is revealed is likely to be free of pigmentation. Potato and tomato juice are known to be beneficial in lightening pigmented skin.

To prevent further pigmentation, wear loose clothes that do not irritate the skin. You may also apply talcum powder on the affected skin after a shower to prevent chafing. Keep your skin healthy by regulating your diet. Avoid consuming lots of oily foods and incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drinking a sufficient quantity of water is also a good way to flush out toxins and keep the skin hydrated and healthy.
