Although a dark groin or bikini area is not something that other people can notice, this is still a big concern for women who struggle with it. Apart from making it hard for you to wear certain clothes, it can also limit your movement and negatively affect your self-confidence.


A number of factors contribute as to why someone may experience discoloration or darkening in the bikini area. These include hormonal imbalance, obesity, sun exposure, and even friction from tight clothing. Tight undies or clothes, in fact, are actually one of the biggest contributors to this beauty dilemma. 

What’s the reason for this?

The skin on your bikini area, inner thighs, and underarm is thinner and more sensitive compared to other areas of the body. This is why even minimal friction can irritate these areas and cause them to darken. Tight undies can be more problematic, as they cause extra friction and pressure that can lead to discoloration.

Ill-fitting undies are not only the issue; your underwear fabric can also cause problems. This is especially true for those made from synthetic fabrics like nylon and spandex. These materials can trap both heat and moisture that can lead to bacteria and skin irritation. 

What can you do?

It is advisable to stick to cotton undies that are of the right size. You can still wear silk undies or those with lace and trimmings, but it is best to reserve them for special occasions. Wearing synthetic fabrics often or too long can to redness, irritation, and chafing. 

You might also want to consider going to bed without underwear to let your intimate area breathe. Experts suggest that doing so is also a good idea if you’re susceptible to vaginal issues like yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. This is because it avoids trapping in moisture, giving the area a breathing space that can keep it clean and dry.

Applying some petroleum jelly in your inner thighs is also helpful to moisturize and protect the area against friction.
