Your vulva is a beautiful and delicate part of your body. It deserves to be treated with care and attention, just like the rest of your skin. Dark spots on your vulva can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, friction, and inflammation. While dark spots are not harmful, they can make you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your vulva. Just remember, you are not alone because this is a common beauty obstacle for people with vulvas.
Here are 3 simple beauty tips for your vulva:
- Exfoliate regularly. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells, which can make dark spots more visible. You can use a gentle exfoliator designed to gently brighten the vulva, such as our Turmeric + Honey Intimate Body Scrub or a natural exfoliator like sugar or a loofah.
- Moisturize regularly. Keeping your vulva moisturized helps to keep it healthy and hydrated. This can help to reduce the appearance of dark spots. Choose a moisturizer that is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, such as our Pussy Glaze and Winter Pussy Oil.
- Wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight-fitting underwear or pants can rub and scratch against your vulva and inner thighs. This can cause skin irritation which can damage your skin and make dark spots worse.
Here are some additional tips to help you brighten and fade dark spots:
- Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps to keep your skin looking its best. Aim to drink eight glasses of water per day.
- Eat a healthy diet. Eating a healthy diet provides your body with the nutrients it needs to heal and repair itself. Make sure to include plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your diet.
- Get enough sleep. Sleep is essential for skin health. When you don't get enough sleep, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol, which can damage your skin. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
Remember, it is important to have a consistent beauty ritual for your vulva. This means cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing on a regular basis. I would also recommend getting (at least) quarterly vajacials + extractions with an esthetician to prevent further damage to your skin while correcting any pre-existing concerns. I hope these tips help you to keep your vulva healthy and looking its best.
