Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The skin of these parts are naturally darker than rest of body, especially in skin types from three to six. This pigmentation can be reduced by regular application of Vitamin C and Kojic acid-containing combination products to these areas. Add antioxidants to your diet and drink a lot of plenty of water. Apply Eventone c body milk to these areas bd for a month. Drink a lot of fresh and clean water. Follow-up at after a month.
