While intimate lightening is a procedure that can easily fade with time, there are some things that you can do to help make it last even longer. Let’s take a look at some tried and true ways to help keep your skin looking its brightest, even long after you have had your treatment!
What is Intimate Lightening?
Intimate lightening is a professional procedure that can lighten intimate areas by using an all-natural and skin-safe solution. While intimate lightening was originally designed to be used on intimate areas, hence its name, it is often used for other areas of the body, as well. Areas such as the underarms, neck, and face are also good places where intimate lightening could be done in order to help lighten areas of the skin. Intimate lightening procedures can often make skin several shades lighter, lightening up darkened areas to the desired shade. Many individuals who have undergone intimate lightening treatment have noticed results after the first treatment, with optimal results being reached after several treatments. Intimate lightening is popular in both men and women. The ingredients in the intimate lightening solution are all-natural ingredients, such as botanicals and citrus, with the ingredients naturally lightening the skin.
How Can I Make My Intimate Lightening Results Last Longer?
Intimate lightening is the type of procedure that you need to properly care for in order to have your results last longer. There are several ways that you can do this, and the following tips can help you ensure that you are getting the most out of your intimate lightening results. Here are a few good ways to help your results last longer.
Keep the Area Clean and Dry
After you get intimate lightening treatments, it is important to keep the area clean and dry. Do not apply any types of medical skin products for a week after the lightening procedure to ensure that it does not have a negative reaction.
Choose the Correct Clothing
Be sure not to wear any tight clothing after the treatment. This includes tight underwear, bras, shirts, or pants. Try to wear loose clothing, or even consider disposable underwear. This allows the treated area to breathe easily and avoid any friction.
Avoid Hot Water
Avoiding hot water 48 to 72 hours after your treatment can help the area heal from the treatment faster. Use lukewarm or tepid water to bathe in. You may feel slight discomfort, such as that with a light sunburn, when applying water to the area.
Be Mindful of Heavy Exercise
When it comes to your daily activities, you don’t need to worry about skipping out on any of the things that you typically do in a day. However, when it comes to strenuous activity, you may want to put your exercise routine on pause for a day or two or at least stick to something a little lighter.
Take a Break from Bedroom Activities
If the area that you are having lightened is the intimate area, you may want to refrain from sexual activities for forty-eight hours after your procedure.
Stay Out of the Sun
One important step to helping your intimate lighting results last longer is to stay out of the sun – especially direct sunlight. Also avoiding any tanning beds is also a must if you want your results to last. This protocol should be followed for about two weeks following your treatment. After your treatment, it is very important to remember to use sunscreen on the area if it will be exposed to sunlight – be sure to opt for an SPF of at least 30.
