Hyperpigmentation can be found almost anywhere on your body, and one area that is common is the upper inner thighs. This can cause embarrassment and frustration, but it’s a very common problem, regardless of gender or skin tone.
It occurs when the skin on the inner thigh produces excess melanin, a pigment that gives skin its colour. This is called hyperpigmentation.
Causes of inner thigh pigmentation
- dry skin
- tight clothing
- chafing from the thighs rubbing together while walking or exercising
- acanthosis nigricans
You must keep the area clean and moisturised, avoid chafing and limit sun exposure!
You will need to ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties and ingredients which can restore your natural skin colour. Some examples of these ingredients include…
- kojic acid
- liquorice extract
- alpha arbutin

It’s important you stay away from all fragranced skincare when treating hyperpigmentation, particularly in sensitive areas, as it's more likely to irritate and inflame your skin, causing further skin problems.
