Why are my nipples brown? How do I get pink nipples?
Many women privately express their concerns about their nipple color. Some women find that over time, and particularly after having children, their nipple color changes from a light rosy pink to a darker tone. Others find that darker nipples can cause them to feel less attractive or shy with their partner.
Nipple color is generally determined by the level of pigment in your skin. The color of the nipple can range from pink to red, to dark brown or nearly black. Fair skin people tend to have lighter color nipples, and darker skin people have more pronounced nipple color.
The color of the areola can also change over time due to hormonal changes in the body. Menstruation, pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause nipples to darken dramatically. For women who have just had a baby, they will generally find that their nipples will return to a lighter color after some time although sadly it may not be the exact same color it once was. Getting rid of dark nipples after long bouts of breastfeeding can affect body confidence.
How can I lighten my nipples?
In order to help lighten your nipples and restore their natural color, use a cream containing only natural ingredients. As the skin on the nipples and areola is very delicate, it can easily become affected by harsh products. Ingredients effective for nipple lightening are Bearberry extract, Arbutin & Vitamin C.
Please consult your doctor if you experience any sudden changes in nipple color, texture or size.
