  • maybe using the hair bleach will help, but I would consult your doctor before you do it just in case.

  • There are bleaching techniques that are used. You might want to consult your dermatologist first, then maybe a plastic surgeon specializing in skin.

  • Apply lemon juice. Don't wear polyester clothing near those areas. Wash regularly, make sure these areas are dry by applying powder. Try Shower to Shower. Wax these areas regularly. If your inner thighs rub together this also causes it to go dark, so you may need to lose weight on your thighs.

  • Not sure but from what I understand the discoloration comes from your razor. It's a razor burn.

    I've never heard of Avon Wax remover improving discoloration. How many of these had you sold?

  • I have heard certain deodorants do this. I would check with a dermatologist.
