Bleaching your anal area at home is not as hard as you think. Find out which anal bleaching cream works and how to do it by reading this article.
What is Anal Bleaching?
Anal Bleaching is the process of lightening the darker pigmentation on or around the anus leaving a more even skin tone. It is typically done by applying a cream that contains a lightening agent to the skin around the anus. The procedure which entails the application of cream to the anus should be done cautiously. Creams can be applied in the privacy of your own home. Imagine going into a store and asking, what is the best anal bleaching cream? A majority of people would never dream of asking this question. Nevertheless, data suggest that more people than ever are in looking to find information about this cosmetic procedure online. The reason is obvious – no one wants to deal with awkward stares at the checkout lane.
Why do individuals bleach their anus?
The thought of bleaching the most sensitive areas on the body including the anus has recently entered into the mainstream of media and culture. A fair look for one of your most intimate body parts is desirable for several reasons: proper self-care and beauty treatments are standard practices in daily life. “Anal Bleaching” is becoming an increasingly popular routine for many individuals. Due to ageing and hormonal changes, men and women suffer from dark discoloration on the intimate areas. Dark pigmentation around the anus can be also a result of pregnancy, wearing tight clothing or a melanin increase in this area of the body. Anal bleaching has become an accepted practice in the general community especially those who are embarrassed by their darker skin around the genitals. People usually look for remedies to somehow reduce the appearance of dark discoloration the reason why the demand of anal bleaching creams and products grew dramatically.
Is Anal Bleaching safe?
The first thing you need to know about anal bleaching is that it is safe and effective if you use the correct product with the right ingredients. When you aim to look your best, this includes all aspects of your physical appearance. There is some controversy regarding how safe the treatment is, however, studies show that it is safe as long as you the cream that you use does not contain hydroquinone. You may have read some conflicting information already, so it’s natural to be worried. As we age, it is natural that certain areas of our bodies gather more pigment.
Where and how can you get the treatment?
- By going to a salon – you can go to a salon that specializes in anal bleaching and get the treatment there. Note that you may need several sessions before you see results. However, a lot of people avoid this option as it can be very embarrassing to bend over and expose your anus to the aesthetician. Another reason is most salons that do anal bleaching use hydroquinone-based products. HQ is definitely a no-no because it’s a clinically-proven carcinogen.
- Use an anal bleaching cream at home – A lot of people have started to lean towards treatments that can done at home for privacy reasons. Like what’s stated above, it’s very uncomfortable to expose your intimate area to an aesthetician that you barely know. Some anal bleaching products in the market use harsh chemicals that are harmful to the skin and could cause more darkening. This is why it is very important to consider finding the right product that has no known risks or potentially damaging side effects. When buying an anal bleaching cream, keep in mind that you should look at the ingredients carefully. Look for ingredients like Alpha Arbutin and Niacinamide. It’s better if the cream contains both of these ingredients because Alpha Arbutin inhibits melanin (dark skin) formation while Niacinamide gradually lightens the skin. These two lightening actives are considered to be the most effective and safest way to bleach your anus. Never buy creams that contain Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Glycolic Acid or Vitamin C since these ingredients will darken the skin even more and might cause irritation.
Using anal bleaching products will help rejuvenate the intimate areas. The efficacy in diminishing the look of darkened anal depends on the formulation, concentration and ingredients used.
How long before you see results:
On average, it normally takes 12-16 weeks of using the bleaching cream twice a day before you seeing results. Remember that individual results vary depending on skin type and how dark the area is. Note that you have to be consistent in using the cream in order to see results.
My own experience: How I bleach my anus at home
I use a bleaching cream called Marie France Tone Perfecting Creme. I use it two to three times day after taking a shower or washing myself. I always shave the area first before I use the cream. Note that having too much hair in the area is not good because the active ingredients of the product will not be able to get in contact with the skin. Make sure that the skin gets a generous amount of the cream and no hair blocks the cream’s contact with the epidermis. I’ve been doing this for at least a few months now and so far, it has lightened three shades. I will be posting my before and after pictures in a few weeks so please check back.
Intimate area bleaching will continue to evolve in both safety precautions as well as overall effectiveness. But bear in mind that the hyper pigmentation did not appear overnight, therefore, it will take quite some time before it eventually fades away. Once the skin tone has improved after the treatments, maintenance is recommended to keep the area more even toned.
When you give a healthy amount of thought and attention to other physical areas of your body, you may not want to forget about your anal area as it is still part of your body.
UPDATE: These are my anal bleaching before and after pictures. I’m using the cream and also the mask for several months now and will continue doing so until I reach my desired results. I still see some discoloration but it should lighten up in a couple more months. By the way, I also started using the Tone Perfecting Mask (by Marie France as well) together with the cream.
