When you exfoliate, this layer is removed and fresh skin layer comes to the top giving skin a fair look. Exfoliate two times a week

  • Apply moisturizing cream to your thighs

Use a good lotion to moisturize this zone,this supplies moisture to your thighs thereby  keeping your skin smooth, silky and baby soft

  • Wear comfortable clothes

Wearing tight rough jeans can be the cause of dark inner thighs because when this material rubs against skin, it damages the area and makes it dark.

 Also if the top you wear is tight and makes constant friction with your underarms, then it can also become dark. 

The type of clothes you wear can have an impact on your skin tone.
