In the recent past, many people have continuously said it is and will all be about the bottom. And here we are not talking about donkeys, but human beings’ bottoms.
It is common for people to notice the bottoms of other people. Many of those doing this will in many cases have no clue as to how their bottoms look like unless of course, you are into bendy gymnast poses.
Today, it has somehow become acceptable for a person to steal a look at someone’s behind.
Nicki Minaj, a popular US-based musician said in one of her songs (Anaconda) that the average person will try all kinds of mind-boggling poses to try and see their bottoms. This leads to the topic of rear bleaching.
What is It?
At first you may think that this sounds crazy, but believe it or not, it is not something that is no longer exclusive to socialites, and the Kardashians.
Instead, it is increasingly becoming common for the ordinary folks to try and whiten their behinds as well.
But the main question is, and remains—how much do you know about this procedure? Do you have enough information with you to make an informed decision to get up on the bleaching table?
It is normal for you to have questions on the procedure, and its overall safety. Therefore, worry not as we will tackle everything you need to know about it.
Medically speaking, this is a form of skin treatment used to lighten the skin surrounding your excretory opening. The procedure is mainly done for cosmetic purposes, with the main goal being to whiten this region.
It is a procedure that can easily be performed in a medical office or a beauty salon. Additionally, you can also be able to perform it at home on your own through the use of topical creams.
You should note that this procedure is very much self-explanatory, as it does what the name suggests.
There are professionals in the medical industry who have described the procedure as something men and women do to bleach the skin surrounding their excretory opening region in a bid to create a skin tone that is more even.
But before you get freaked out and run for the hills, note that it is not as scary as the description would make you believe.
There are bleaching treatments that are not reliant on the use of bleach. You will learn more about these treatment solutions later on to provide you with a better perspective of what to expect.
Why do people whiten/Lighten?
If it were not for celebrities and erotica stars adopting the trend, chances are that this procedure may not have gained as much popularity as it has today.
The adoption of the practice by leading celebrities and erotica actors have caused a surge in the number of men and women who want to have their bottoms bleached.
Many people claim that bleaching this region helps make them cleaner, and as a result make them feel more confident when engaging in coitus.
Additionally, there is a group that uses this technique to maintain an even skin tone when they are wearing bikinis, thongs, or G-strings.
It is the reason many women have chosen to get their genitals bleached by using whitening procedures and treatments.
Studies have shown that having poor skin habits, and wearing tight underwear normally increases melanin, and this causes your skin to become darker.
This procedure makes it possible to reverse the darkening process, resulting in a body part that is much lighter, and cleaner.
Although not every person is liberal enough or is willing to bare their bottoms to other people, it is possible for you to bleach your behind without other people knowing about it.
But you have to ensure that you follow all the instructions that have been provided by the manufacturers of the bleaching products.
Failure to do so means that you will end up irritating the skin around this highly sensitive region. Do not expect to notice results immediately, as it may take time for the process to work.
Safety- What are the side Effects?
Whether you choose to have this procedure performed in a medical surgery, at home, or in a beauty spa, you need to be sure that you have chosen the right products.
Note that not all the products being used to whiten the skin are actually safe.
Additionally, you will need to pay attention to the instructions that have been provided by the manufacturer if you want to avoid irritating your skin, or suffering a chemical burn.
To start with, you need to stay away from any product that has hydroquinone as part of its ingredients list.
Although physicians have in the past prescribed this agent to people who would like to lighten their skin, many physicians are today expressing their concerns about using this solution to bleach the skin.
Many countries in the European Union have also banned the use of this product. Although it may be allowed in your country, you have to make sure that you play it safe.
It is a part of your we are talking about after all. Therefore, make sure that you do not damage it through the use of ingredients that are at best questionable.
In the United States for instance, hydroquinone has come under a lot of scrutiny as a skin bleaching agent.
Currently, medical experts recommend that you only use natural ingredients to bleach the intimate regions.
Using harsh products to bleach the intimate regions will normally result in:
- Chronic conditions, e.g., cancer
If you look at the side effects of using harsh chemicals, you get to realize just how scary the procedure can be.
It is recommended that you handle the bleaching yourself as you get to decide the products you would like to use for this process.
You should test each product by applying small amounts on your skin to check for skin irritation.
In addition, performing this procedure at home means that you will not feel the additional pressure to go on with the procedure if you become uneasy, as may happen when you are in a salon.

Hydroquinone is the most popular cream for use when it comes to bleaching and skin lightening.
It is an agent that has been relied on for many years by people looking to lighten or whiten their skin.
It is also used to get rid of acne scars, age spots, melasma, and freckles.
However, this is a skin whitening cream that is very controversial, as mentioned earlier on. Read on to learn more about Hydroquinone.
How effective is it?
Currently, it is the most documented skin bleaching agent available in the domestic, and international market.
All the studies conducted on its effectiveness have one conclusion—it works as advertised.
It works by inhibiting the production of tyrosinase. This is the enzyme that is required by the body to produce melanin.
By inhibiting its production, Hydroquinone ensures that dark skinned people do not manufacture the substance that is responsible for generating skin color.
By doing this, Hydroquinone is able to increase melanosomes breakdown, while at the same time reducing melanin production.
With time, the old skin cells will start to die off, and they will leave behind skin cells that are much lighter.
How long does it take for it to lighten your skin?
Although it is classified as a beauty agent, it does not actually assist you bleach your skin.
This is because all it does is destroy all the melanin that had previously been synthesized.
Thus, all this agent is able to do is disrupt the synthesis process, which is also responsible for producing melanin.
For you, this means that as much as the production of new melanin has been stopped, the existing melanin will still take time before it can leave your skin. Existing melanin can only leave your skin through natural exfoliation.
It is the reason why one has to wait for a few weeks before they can notice any results after using Hydroquinone.
- It works
- It is affordable
- It can irritate your skin
- Has been known to cause mild burning
- Can cause redness
- It can cause skin cracking and blistering
- It can sting your skin
Although Hydroquinone works in helping you bleach your skin, its risks are much greater than its benefits. It is, therefore, best to start by trying out the natural skin lighteners before you move on to Hydroquinone.
This is a medical procedure that will actually help you lighten your excretory opening region. The surgery relies on the use of extreme temperatures to modify different skin layers.
The layers that are being worked on, or the areas where the layers have been destroyed end up having a light color.
It is important to note that this procedure is in no way cheap, and can only be conducted by a medical professional.
You should also note that this procedure has more of a cosmetic vibe, and will in many cases not be covered by your medical insurance cover.
Another thing to note is that this is a surgical procedure. There are, therefore, risks that you should be worried about.
How effective is it?
Medical experts say that this is one of the most effective procedures. One should however, be well versed with its side-effects and possible outcomes.
- Highly effective
- It takes a few hours for one to start noticing results
- It does not take too long to complete
- It is not cheap
- Must be performed by a doctor
- Not covered by your medical insurance cover
- Being a surgical procedure, it may come with some risks
- It is painful
Use of products/Kits-Best Creams/Gels
These products and kits are mainly used in beauty spas. The main benefit of using these kits is that they are much cheaper than some of the methods that have been discussed above.
Additionally, they are not medical procedures, which means that they pose less risk to you as a patient.
But one thing that you should note is that using a kit or product is not very much different from using natural remedies. Here, you will be using a cream gel to bleach the region. This means that you do not have to go to the spa, as you can easily purchase the cream and apply it at home on your own.
The main benefit of going to the spa comes in that the beauty professionals know which products are safe, efficient, and easy to use.
They will, therefore, be able to choose a product that will work, and one that will not harm your skin.
It is highly effective, but it takes time for one to notice the results. You may need to use the product for a few times before you can notice any results.
In many instances, you will find that the results will only become noticeable after a few weeks have elapsed.
- Easy to find
- Easy to use
- Some kits may cause skin irritation
- You need to be careful when choosing a product to use
- You may have to pay someone to apply it for you
What are the top rated products?
The following are products that have been marketed to assist in whitening intimate areas. They include:
- Pink Privates
- South Beach
The products listed above have been chosen for their ability to whiten areas with dark skin, as well as for the fact that they do not contain hydroquinone.
Laser treatment can also be used to achieve this type of bleaching. A high-powered laser will normally be used to remove the dark melanin surrounding the region.
The end result is that the skin in this area will be much lighter. One thing to note is that this procedure is not cheap, and you may need to go for more than one session before you can notice any results.
Another thing to note is that you will not be allowed to engage in coitus for as long as you are still going for these session. Additionally, the procedure is not only uncomfortable, but it also happens to be very painful. And although it is effective, it increases your chances of getting an infection.
You must, therefore, ensure that you maintain proper hygiene at all times. The good news is that you no longer need to worry about scarring as was the case a few years ago.
This is because newer technology has led to improvements in laser treatments. The treatments have also become more effective, and are much quicker than the other bleaching methods discussed here.
DIY or go to the salon?
There are those that prefer having this procedure done at home, while others are more comfortable having it done in a salon by a professional.
Although having it done at home will by no doubt save you some money, going to the salon helps ensure that the job will be done in a professional manner. This also guarantees you better results.
Another thing that you need to note is that the bleaching procedure for natural remedies and topical creams is pretty much the same. It involves:
- Preparing the region you want to bleach
- Shaving the area and ensuring that all hair has been removed. It is important that this hair be removed as it can interfere with the bleaching process leading to results that are not desirable
- Use warm water and mild soap to clean the area. A wash cloth may also come in handy
- Exfoliate the region to remove unwanted skin. Considering the delicate nature of the skin in this region, you need to make sure that exfoliation is done in a gentle manner
- Use a clean towel to dry this area
- Ensure the area is completely dry before applying the bleaching agent
- The agent should only be applied in the external region
- Wait for it to become absorbed by your skin
- Try and apply the agent two times each day. This is in the morning and in the evenings until you notice some results
- If the skin starts to darken after a while, repeat the procedure
As mentioned earlier, this bleaching is a very good way for one to achieve uniform skin tone. But be sure to choose your products carefully.
