Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.
The skin of genital and buttock area is black in most people. Its natural constituent is like that.
Most important is face and hand.
Here is my advice for you.
1. Use a skin lightening cream like look brite. Apply this cream in night, keep for 2 hours and then wash off.
2. In the morning you must apply a sun screen. Photo bloc will be good for you.
Do the above daily for a month. You will get a fairer complexion. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Hello,
Many pills are available, but its not good to take them.
There can be side effect,
So better to apply skin lightening cream.

Suncross cream with spf 30 is good enough.

Feel free to ask any other doubts.

Thank you
