Will using a skin lightening cream with 2% Hydroquinone help lighten the areola?
The one I have is called Genuine Black & White, 2% Hydroquinone.
Yes I know you do not care about color or size or you magically love dark or big areolas but that's not my question. I care about the color. I unfortunately have dark areolas and my chest area is quite a bit lighter than the areolas
Do yourself a favor and leave your breasts alone. Applying a potentially damaging chemical could turn out to be a very regretful and irreversible decision further down the road.
And despite you not wanting to be questioned about it, I'm going to ask anyway. Why do you sarcastically describe men's preferences as "magically love dark or big areolas". Many men (myself included) *do* love dark areolas. And they also love large areolas, even if the size is disproportionate to rest of the breast.
Don't give yourself angst over this. Regardless of what your breasts look like, there is always going to be a certain percentage of people who love their appearance.
