Facial Hair?

Facial Hair  & feminity don't go together.

Bleaching hair also tends to work better on people with fair complexions as opposed to dark ones.


Bleaching the face, body is quite common these days. Bleaching removes the pigments and decolourises the hair to match with the skin tone. It does not remove hair, it’s a method just to hide hair. There are various kinds of bleaches each separate for the facial hair, body hair and hair on the head. When it comes to bleaching of facial hair, apparently it is widely used by fair skin tone females and those with fine hair. Facial bleaches don’t work well on dark skin and on thick hair as it can prominently be noticeable. Facial hair bleach is just a temporary solution and one has to repeat this cycle of bleaching after every 6 to 8 weeks.


Can one bleach their face at home? The answer to this question invariably depends upon the amount of professional guidance you receive from an expert in this field. Indeed there are lot many facial bleach products in the market, but one must definitely bear in mind that bleaches after all are chemicals and there is every possibility that chemicals may harm few skin types. The important factor to consider is that the bleach you choose should only work on your facial hair and not on the skin. These bleach products should be applied only for a set amount of time.

The bleach for removal of facial hair is gentler and must be appropriately chosen.

When applied on dark skin and thick hair it can stand out and give a contrasting look. If you are prepared to bleach your facial hair at home yourself, you must be aware of the quantity of the bleach product to be mixed with a set amount of ingredient such as powered activator. Also know your health condition and skin type as bleaching may not be safe for acne prone skin and on areas of cuts and wounds. Basically a patch test is always recommended. Bleaching is not considered safe for pregnant women, lactating mothers or for somebody with other complicated health conditions. Post bleaching one must follow certain precautions such as to minimise the exposure to sun for a set period of time, not to undergo any facial treatments post or pre bleaching, a certain time gap after the first bleach session and many other factors.  To put forth in simple words, bleaches are chemicals and handling them needs utmost professional guidance, as DIY may call for some risks in terms of side effects on your skin.
