Let us begin by putting it out there that your vagina is not exactly designed to look pretty.
The rough skin, the grisly hair and even the distinct odour is as it should be. They have a purpose. Just as your nose hair prevents allergens and pollens from entering your system, the pubic hair traps bacteria and prevents it from entering your vagina.
Your vagina has both good bacteria and bad bacteria.
The good bacteria maintain the required alkalinity to kill the microbes and maintain a healthy environment down there, which gives it a distinct smell. It is when the distinct smell turns to a pungent odour that you know the bad bacteria count is high! Your skin texture is rough there because of the chafing of the thighs and tight clothing.
Also, the skin tone of your southern region does not necessarily have to match with the rest of your body. Even the palest of women sometimes have dark private parts! In a perfect world, you would be fine with just the way your vagina looks.
However, the perfect world is more of an illusion than reality. And the quest for fairer and smoother southern region is real! Between the chemically choked products and natural remedies, we figured you are better off not taking toxic chemicals anywhere near your super-sensitive vagina.
Dark vaginal color may be due to wearing of polyester or synthetic underwear. Always wear cotton underwear and reserve a few loose ones for the bedtime, so that the skin can breathe easily during the night. Maintain proper hygiene. Cleaning the vagina regularly, changing the underwear daily, changing sanitary napkins or tampons often, and using good quality sanitary pads during periods are some important measures to be taken.
This darkening may also be due to the side effects of using certain medications or lubricating creams. Pregnancy and hyper-pigmentation due to excessive insulin in the body may also cause dark skin at the vagina. Women with type 2 diabetes often have dark vagina.
