A manâ€™s male organ skin makes a huge impression on partners (and potential partners), as well as on just the casual viewer. (Guys do surreptitiously check each other out in, say, the locker room with a quick glance.) As noted in our article originally published on Ezinearticles.com, thatâ€™s one reason practicing appropriate male organ health is important. When the skin is clean and clear, it assures onlookers that it is in good shape and disease-free (although, of course, in some cases appearances can be deceiving). Because it makes an impression, people may try to alter its looks for aesthetic reasons. One way in which this may be accomplished by some is male organ lightening â€“ but those who decide to take this route should be careful, as there are risks associated with it.
About male organ lightening
Also known as male organ bleaching and occasionally as male organ whitening, male organ lightening is pretty much exactly what it says: a way of lightening the skin color of the member. Why would a man choose to do this? Almost exclusively for aesthetic reasons, as there does not appear to be a medical need for such a treatment.
Sometimes a guy may simply be trying to â€œeven things out.â€ Itâ€™s not unusual for male organ skin to be a little darker than the skin in the midsection, so lightening may make the manhood look more like it belongs with the rest of the guyâ€™s body. In some other cases, male organ skin may be somewhat â€œblotchyâ€ in pigmentation. Male organ lightening might be a way to smooth out the blotches so that the male organ skin is all one consistent color.
Some critics of male organ lightening contend that many men do it out of a notion that light or white skin is simply more desirable than darker skin. The possible racial overtones of this viewpoint can turn male organ lightening into a debate on racism.
Whatever a guyâ€™s reason for choosing this option, he needs to be careful about it. Many doctors believe that male organ lightening should be avoided at all costs, simply because there are risks associated with it. If a man does opt to explore it, getting the advice of a medical professional is strongly advised.
Although it is often called male organ bleaching, actual laundry bleach should NEVER be used on delicate male organ skin. Nor, for that matter, should peroxide. Instead, when using a liquid for lightening, lemon juice or milk is better for use as a base.
There have been reports of some men using a chemical peel to achieve a lightened member; again, the delicacy of male organ skin makes this a risky option.
Some men opt for laser-based surgical procedures for male organ lightening. Many in the medical community are against this, again because of the risks to male organ health that it poses. A man who does opt for a laser treatment should carefully select a qualified doctor with ample experience in the field. Swelling, pain, scarring, and even possible disfigurement are potential risks associated with laser lightening.
Being proud of oneâ€™s male organ skin is one reason men opt for male organ lightening. Maintaining pride in oneâ€™s manhood is easier if one regularly uses a top notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A manâ€™s member deserves to be pampered with an effective crÃ¨me, so a man is well advised to select the proper crÃ¨me. Look for one that contains ingredients that will moisturize and nourish the skin, such as a high end emollient (like shea butter) combined with a natural hydrating agent (like vitamin E). In addition, the crÃ¨me should include L-carnitine. This amino acid has neuroprotective properties that can help maintain valuable manhood sensitivity.
