Specific anti-discoloration products
Here on TP particularly in the last year the peeling approach has gained the biggest support in the long battle against discoloration.
Certainly, freezing/drying/burning skin cells will help in removing surface darker areas, but it seems to me it could easily be disproportionate and unnecessary, if not dangerous.
We’re actually replicating the effect of a sunburn, to rush and trigger the generation of new skin: even without the risks of a direct UV exposure, I think the damage to outer layer and protection could be dangerous.
Apart from that, I consider the word ‘discoloration’ misleading. Usually something ‘discolored’ LOSE color, while in our case it’s the opposite: stressed skin reacts with hyperpigmentation, producing more melanin.
Considering that this isn’t a problem limited to PE, I began wondering about which products exist to ‘dissolve’ melanin (reducing the amount in skin cells) rather than typical chemical peeling products (to destroy the cells with more melanin).
You can find an endless offer of similar products; among the others this attracted my attention:
ANAL/VAGINAL BLEACHING CREAM
I have very little faith in the product by itself - the auction doesn’t look very professional, and there’s no mention of product components (only a generic reference to “a multitude of different skin bleaching agents”).
It’s interesting anyway that products like this are already used by many users on delicate areas: anus, vagina (have you ever rejected a woman for a too-dark vagina? Now you know you can!) and even ‘male genitalia’.
I’d be curious to give it a try, maybe finding a more reliable brand and product…
Anyone with a direct experience?
