The skin around the pubic area is very sensitive and are prone to hyper pigmentation so it tends to go darker than the rest of the body but these remedies help to lighten them.
However a lot of factors contribute to making it worse, from wearing tight underwears to friction between the thighs, wearing polyester underwear (cotton underwears are preferable) are some of the factors that cause the skin around the pubic area to go dark.
Other causes include shaving often which can cause in-grown hair, wearing clothes/trousers that are too tight and so on.
There are different home remedies to tackle dark areas around the pubic region but these two work perfectly and are natural.
Tomatoes are great for lightening the skin. They are packed with antioxidant which helps protects the skin against sun damage while also maintaining the skin colour.

Use this daily till you get desired result.
