How Can I Lighten Dark Skin on my Butt?

The skin on my buttocks is too dark! I'm Nigerian (female) but I noticed that my buttocks are much darker than my general skin tone. What treatments are suited for me?

Melarase creams for dark areas on the buttocks and in the pubic area

Melarase creams and Melapads are an excellent at-home method to lighten dark pigmentation in areas of skin friction. Melarase creams can be used twice daily to help lighten the skin and reduce excessive folliculitis.

Buttocks Skin Lightening Cream

Yes, any of the prescription strength skin lightening topical cream formulas are usually successful.

You need to see your Dermatologist for this.  Good luck.
