The Best Creams, Gels & Kits for Anal Bleaching Treatments

Anal bleaching might sound like an intimidating procedure, but in actuality, it’s very easy to do yourself at home and, as long as you are educated about the options available, the chances of experiencing any unpleasant side effects are low.

Like any other skin lightening procedure, bleaching is intended to target discolored areas of skin to make them lighter and more aesthetically appealing.  Infancy science speak, bleaching creams and gels reduce hyper-pigmentation which is when there is an excessive concentration of melanin (dark pigment) in an area of skin.  Remember that results will vary depending on your ethnicity and the natural level of pigment in your private areas.  Those with a darker complexion will require more treatments over a longer period of time.

If you’ve decided to add anal bleaching to your beauty regime, whether to boost your self-confidence, give your sex-life a lift or surprise your partner, then it’s important to learn a little more about the process before taking the plunge and buying a home anal bleaching kit.

Steps to Treating

Health first 

Firstly, if you have any infections, illnesses or are pregnant and/or breastfeeding then you should always consult a doctor before undergoing a bleaching treatment.  This is because some products contain harsh chemical ingredients which can be potentially harmful.

For example, the chemical hydroquinone is present in many anal bleaching formulations but is now banned in all EU countries and across Asia after being linked to an increased risk of cancer, chemical burns, and other skin irritation.  Also, avoid any product containing mercury or an abundance of acid-based ingredients.


Contrary to some anal bleaching myths, discoloration around genital regions has nothing to do with whether you keep yourself clean or not, but is in fact related to your ethnicity and your body’s natural level of melanin (the dark pigment which causes discoloration).

Although poor hygiene isn’t the direct cause of skin discoloration, good personal hygiene is crucial in preparing for the anal bleaching treatment.  Wash and moisturize your anal region thoroughly and always make sure that it is completely dry before applying any anal bleaching cream or gel.

Always be extra gentle when drying your butt as it’s easy to break the skin by being too rough on intimate areas.  If this happens then you’ll have to allow yourself time to heal before applying any anal bleaching products.  If any bleach comes into contact with micro-tears in the skin then your body will tell you!  Should you experience any burning sensation, pain or other irritation while applying bleach, stop treatment immediately and apply vaseline to protect the skin.

Read the directions

Every anal bleaching treatment is designed to achieve the same aim – a lighter, more aesthetically-pleasing ass, but the number of treatments and precise directions for use will vary according to the product that you buy.  Any product which contains hydroquinone is likely to require fewer treatments as this strong chemical agent works quickly.  However, with this added strength comes an increased risk of skin irritation such as a burning sensation and, in worst case scenarios, chemical burns.

Skin darkening

As the market for skin lightening has grown – originating in the world of adult film actresses and celebrities – so too has the demand for skin darkening procedures.  Skin darkening can refer to sun-bed tanning or, increasingly, to fake tanning products used to get that golden glow even if the weather is miserable.

If you have a naturally dark complexion then you may notice light areas developing over time.  This can be due to many factors including depleted melanin levels and various skin conditions.  One solution is to spend more time in the sun.  However, if you live somewhere where there isn’t much sunlight then this is easier said than done.  Fortunately, there are many different ‘sunless’ creams, gels and tanning solutions available to help maintain healthy, dark skin.

Skin darkening procedures

When you’re looking for skin darkening products you’ll notice that DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is a common ingredient used in almost all of the most popular lotions.  This chemical is actually a sugar which reacts with proteins in the skin to produce what is commonly known as a ‘fake tan.’  Here’s how to fake tan properly, ensuring that you get the natural results you’re looking for:

1. Wax/shave before tanning

If the areas that you want to darken aren’t already smooth then it’s a good idea to wax or shave before applying fake tan.  This makes sure that the lotion comes into contact with as much skin as possible and doesn’t get trapped in between hairs.  However, it’s important to leave at least 24 hours between waxing/shaving and applying the fake tan lotion.  This is because removing hairs will make your skin more sensitive and tanning too soon could increase the risk of skin irritation.

2. Moisturise

It’s a good idea to apply moisturizer to the intended areas the night before fake tanning to make sure your skin is as hydrated and smooth as possible.  If you leave areas of dry skin then your tan is likely to be patchy and you might not get the beach-ready look that you’re after.  Moisturised skin is healthy skin and the healthier your skin is, the less likely you are to encounter adverse effects when using intimate bleaching products.

  1. Wear gloves

A common mistake when fake tanning for the first time is forgetting to wear gloves.  While a body tan can turn heads, tanned palms aren’t exactly the height of fashion and can be mistaken for dirt.

Buy some cheap latex gloves prior to applying your fake tan.  Don’t worry too much though as you can buy tan remover if you forget to pick up a pair of gloves.

  1. Be gentle

To get the best possible results, apply a light, even layer of tanning lotion to the desired area.  Some people think that rubbing the solution into the skin will result in a better tan when the opposite is in fact true.  If you have moisturized your skin properly then the lotion will work its magic and you’ll get the tan you’re after.

  1. Follow the product directions

It can be tempting to assume that leaving your fake tan on for as long as possible will give you a stronger tan, but this is not the case.  Different products work at different speeds so always read the directions for use and stick to them.

Whether you’re bleaching or darkening, the procedure is simple and easy, designed for those looking for convenient home-based beauty solutions.  If you’ve done your research, tried the product on a small  area of skin to check for any irritants and read the directions which comes with all products then you shouldn’t have any problems at all – just remember to enjoy the new you and try to get used to all the compliments you get for looking fabulous!

Dark butt treatments

Dark or discolored buttocks is something which can affect men and women of all ages.  Because it’s one of those embarrassing ‘private’ areas, people don’t really like talking about their behind.  However, with so many lightening treatments available today, you don’t need to suffer in silence and can easily return your posterior to a more pleasing, lighter shade with little to no hassle.

There are many reasons why skin around the buttocks can discolor over time.  Some of the most common include:

  • Pressure from sitting down
  • Not applying exfoliation/ moisturizing treatments
  • The continual rubbing of clothes on the intimate areas
  • Natural hyper-pigmentation (high levels of melanin in the body)

While it might not seem like a huge problem to some, many women can feel self-conscious about dark, uneven areas of skin to the point where it can have a negative impact on their self-confidence, sex lives and even relationships with partners.  Advances in science and understanding of natural remedies have reached the point where we know how best to treat this condition.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular anal bleaching solutions and the pros and cons of each in a nutshell:

Spa sessions

Although you might prefer the idea of anal bleaching in the privacy of your own home, many beauty spas now offer butt beautifying treatments on their standard treatment menu.

Pros:  Spa technicians typically use stronger intimate bleaches than those that you would purchase as part of a home-kit.  This means that the lightening results are likely to be faster and more effective.  Furthermore, so long as you have done your research and booked an appointment with a reputable spa with high levels of hygiene and expertise, you can rest assured that your unmentionables are in the right hands rather than having to learn how to apply bleach yourself.

Cons:  As you would expect, the cost of spa treatments is likely to be far higher than any DIY option.  What’s more, you will need to book a series of appointments (depending on the level of hyperpigmentation/darkness around your nether regions).

Secondly, not all spas adhere to the same standards so it’s best to check out customer reviews or go on word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted friends before booking an appointment.  If you arrive for an appointment and notice that the place isn’t sparkling clean, or that the technician is reusing products then don’t be afraid to make a run for it and find someone who values your intimate health as much as you do!

Laser surgery 

Laser surgery might sound a little futuristic and somewhat scary, but it is one of the most effective, long-lasting (potentially permanent) anal bleaching treatments.  Here’s what you need to know:

Pros:  As only qualified technicians are allowed to perform laser surgery you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.  The finished results of laser whitening can be remarkable as the discolored layer of skin is completely removed during the procedure.  As well as a sparkling vajayjay you’re also likely to leave your appointments with a course of antibiotics to greatly reduce the chances of contracting an infection.

Cons:  Laser treatment doesn’t come cheap.  Prices vary widely, depending on the area, clinic and seniority of the technician, but you will need multiple sessions, particularly if you suffer from extensive hyper-pigmentation or have a naturally dark skin tone.  Although you will be given a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort in private areas, it can take a few days to fully recover from laser treatments during which time you may feel a burning sensation, itching and other irritation as the skin heals.


Although it might sound like something out of a sci-fi film, cryosurgery is actually a very effective anal bleaching treatment.

Pros:  Similarly to laser whitening, cryosurgery treatments can only be undertaken by a trained practitioner.  During your appointments, the technician will likely administer a local anesthetic before blasting discolored skin with liquid nitrogen making it a relatively painless procedure.  The extreme cold of the liquid nitrogen freezes and kills the unwanted discolored cells leaving the lighter natural skin in their place.  Cryosurgery can have long-lasting results and can be extremely effective for those with dark complexions.  

Cons:  You might have already guessed that cryosurgery is definitely not the cheapest anal bleaching option out there.  As with laser treatment, you will need several appointments depending on the severity of your hyperpigmentation.  Although the sessions themselves are practically pain-free, the invasiveness of the treatment means that recovery can take a few days during which time you could potentially experience skin irritation, blisters and an increased risk of infection.  It almost goes without saying that you won’t be able to have sex for a few days after (although you probably won’t feel like it anyway!).

Is it really worth having my anus bleached?

Head-to-toe beauty treatments used to be the preserve of celebrities and a small number of people who could afford them.  Thankfully, thats no longer the cases.  More and more people are choosing to undergo anal bleaching treatments, whether they want to please a partner or boost your self-confidence.  The thing to remember is that there are many different options out there, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.  We would recommend home-kits, but only those which exclude hydroquinone and the acid-based ingredients listed above.  Its natural to feel a little nervous about applying a beauty treatment to such a sensitive area, but the risks are low and the results are definitely worth it.
