Hyperpigmentation zone intime : comment éclaircir le maillot ?

Having a darker bikini line than the rest of the body is common among all women. This skin condition is benign, but can be bothersome, especially as summer approaches. Your physical well-being is our priority. This is why we reveal all the methods that will allow you to remove hyperpigmentation in the private parts .

What are the causes of hyperpigmentation in the intimate areas?

Hyperpigmentation in the bikini area affects all skin tones. It comes from a high concentration of melanin caused by:

  • Regular wearing of tight clothing;
  • Friction;
  • Irritation due to shaving and waxing;
  • Hormonal disorders;
  • A high concentration of melanocytes;
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (this disease causes excessive production of androgens).

Regular wearing of tight clothing

Jeans and tight underwear cause the bikini line to chafe and make the skin rough. Eventually, the area darkens. It is better to wear cotton and less tight underwear.


In the areas where your skin touches each other, the armpits or even between the thighs , you have certainly noticed dark spots. Friction accentuates hyperpigmentation . Melanin is produced to protect the skin from this irritation. Consequently, the skin becomes dark.

Shaving irritation

Shaving is one of the most common causes of hyperpigmentation in the private area . Used frequently, the razor promotes the appearance of ingrown hairs . The hair follicle is irritated and will swell to protect the skin, resulting in pimple-like bumps and then black spots .

Hormonal disorders

Taking contraceptives and pregnancy trigger an overproduction of skin pigmentation in various parts of the body, including the bikini line. It can be seen in women who have PCOS syndrome .

An excess of melanocytes

A high concentration of melanocytes is the cause of this excess melanin. It is this skin cell that causes skin pigmentation . Its role is to protect the skin from the sun's rays or injuries.

When the body overproduces melanin , the pigment is distributed unevenly across the skin. These melanin deposits can create dark spots on the surface of the epidermis.

In people with black, mixed and dark skin , these dark areas are more evident.
