Anal bleaching is the process of lightening the color of the skin around the anus. It is done for cosmetic purposes, to make the color of the anus more uniform with the surrounding area. Some treatments are applied in an office or salon by a cosmetic technician and others are sold as cream that can be applied at home. Pornography actresses were the first to undergo the anal bleaching process, in an effort to lighten the color of their anuses to match the rest of their skin,  although it has been suggested by Kristina Rose that this is not the case.
From the individuals extracting earwax from your eardrum, to the quiet crusaders shaving skin off your feet, in our monthly series The Professionals we meet the people taking pride in the nitty gritty side of beauty. Full disclosure: I never really knew what anal bleaching was. I must have read about it online, something about someone from Geordie Shore getting it done. I also associated it vaguely with porn stars.
