Let us begin by putting it out there that your vagina is not exactly designed to look pretty. The rough skin, the grisly hair and even the distinct odour is as it should be. They have a purpose.

Just as your nose hair prevents allergens and pollens from entering your system, the same way pubic hair traps bacteria and prevents it from entering your vagina.

Your vagina has both good bacteria and bad bacteria. The good bacteria maintains the required alkalinity to kill microbes and maintain a healthy environment down there, which gives it a distinct smell. It is when the distinct smell turns to a pungent odour that you know the bad bacteria count is high!

Your skin texture is rough there because of the chafing of the thighs and tight clothing. And the skin tone of your southern region does not necessarily have to match with the rest of your body. Even the palest of women sometimes have dark private parts!

In a perfect world, you would be fine just the way your vagina looks. However, the perfect world is more of an illusion than reality. And the quest for fairer and smoother southern region is real!

Between the chemically choked products and natural remedies, we figured you are better off not taking toxic chemicals anywhere near your super-sensitive vagina. So, here are 7 natural remedies to lighten skin on your vagina.


Lemon Juice

Probably one of the safest remedies to lighten skin on your vagina. Citric acid and vitamin C in lemon can do two things - Remove discolouration and kill bacteria.

2 tablespoons lemon juice
10 drops rose water

How to Make
Dilute lemon juice in specified amount of rose water. Immerse a cotton pad in the solution. Squeeze out the excess and gently dab it on the affected area. Let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes and then rinse off. Follow this procedure three times a day for immediate results.

Caution - Remove the area of hair and make sure you cleanse it and pat it dry completely before applying the solution. If you experience burning sensation, rinse off the area immediately.


Aloe Vera

Super-effective, yet safe remedy in lightening skin on your vagina. Aloe vera is packed with antioxidants and aloesin that regulate melanin production, which in turn lightens the skin tone.

Pinch of turmeric
1 tablespoon of aloe gel

How To Make
Cut aloe leaf in half and extract the gel. In a bowl, mix the aloe gel with a pinch of turmeric. Cleanse the area thoroughly. Pat it dry with a soft towel. Apply the paste. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse and wipe. Repeat the process 3 times a day. Reduce the frequency with time.


Lemon+Turmeric+Rice powder+Yogurt

Rice powder works to slough the skin off dead cells. Lactic acid in yogurt lightens the skin. The acidic nature of lemon acts as a natural bleach and also gets rid of odour. Rich antioxidants present in turmeric stimulate blood flow, which in turn improves the skin tone.

1 tablespoon turmeric
1 tablespoon rice powder
1 tablespoon yogurt
½ teaspoon lemon

How to Make
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Whip until you get a creamy, almost liquid consistency. Add in the rosewater to get the desired consistency. Apply it on your vagina. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Scrub it in a circular motion. Rinse and pat dry.


Sandalwood + Orange peel

The antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties of sandalwood cleanse the skin of impurities, remove dead skin cells and reveal the clear skin underneath. Orange peel on the other hand is packed with vitamin C which is a natural skin whitening agent. This effective remedy to whiten skin on the vagina will show results in flat 7 days!

1 Tablespoon of sandalwood powder
1 teaspoon of orange peel powder
Rose water as required

How to Make
Mix all the ingredients together and make it into a smooth paste. Wash your private area with plain water. Pat it dry thoroughly. Apply the concoction to the vagina. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.



If you are running out of time and need a quick remedy to whiten the skin on your vagina, you need nothing more than one ingredient - yogurt. It not just lightens skin tone, but also cools and soothes irritated skin.

How to Make
Massage the area with a thin coat of yogurt for 5 minutes every day. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wash it off. Follow it up by applying lavender oil to get rid of the pungent smell of yogurt.


Egg White

Time tested remedy in whitening skin on your vagina. Egg white has potent skin whitening properties, plus it is packed with proteins, which will lighten, brighten and smoothen the skin.

How to Make
Take an egg white in a bowl and whip until you get a frothy consistency. Apply it to the dark area. Let it sit until you feel your skin stretch. Wipe it clean with a wet cloth.


Coconut Oil

Probably the least messy remedy in lightening skin on your vagina. Coconut oil is known for its antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which will remove pigmentation and kill infection-causing bacteria!

How to Make
Trim the area of unwanted hair and cleanse it with a mild solution. Apply coconut oil on the affected area. Avoid wearing inner wear. Let the oil naturally get absorbed by the skin. Repeat the procedure everyday until you see results.
