  HOW TO USE SKIN BLEACH - by Editor
Skin with pigmentation and blemishes is terrible. A skin bleach cream can be the option for you. Learn how to use skin bleach right here.


Sanya avoids birthday bashes, college gatherings and for that matter any social event. She does not want to go in the crowd with her blemishes. She suffered acute acne problem as a teenager. Her acne left behind small brown spots on her face and she hates them the most. She wants a beauty product that will hide her blemishes by making them lighter. She wants to feel comfortable among others. She too desires a good complexioned skin. Will good skin bleach rescue her?

Why people feel the need to bleach their skin? There are personal as well as professional reasons why you want look attractive and well-groomed. A girl looking out for a bridegroom wants to look fair, because fair brides have lots of demand in the world of matrimony. A working woman wants to look eye-catching to do well on professional front. A college going teen wants to look beautiful to attract a handful of glances. Middle aged women dream of a fair and an even skin as they want to hide wrinkles and fine lines.


Way to bleach your skin

The melanin in the body determines the colour of the skin. Most skin whitening products and bleaches work by reducing the production of the melanin. Some mild skin whitening products act like sunscreen. They absorb the harmful UV rays to prevent skin darkening or pigmentation.

Hydroquinone is the powerful chemical used in the cosmetics to remove the pigmentations from the skin surface. Such chemicals have the ability to turn dark complexioned skin into fair complexioned skin. Though such chemicals do wonders, they also bring risks with them.

Skin bleaching is an ancient technique to get a clearer and fairer skin. Bleach is the formulae to lighten your skin tone. Bleaches are also used on hair. Skin bleaches contain hydrogen peroxide, which can harm your skin if used wihtout proper care and precautions. There is no harm in using skin bleaches if you are following proper guidelines.

  • Do the patch test before using any skin bleach. Apply little bleach under the ear and examine for 48 hours. If any reaction such as irritation, redness, inflammation or any kind of discomfort takes place, do not use the product.

  • Read and follow each and every instruction on the leaflet that comes with the product.

  • Do not apply skin bleach near sensitive areas such as eyes and nose.

  • Bleach is for lightening dark spots on the skin or hair. Apply bleaching cream only on the area you wish to make lighter.

  • Some people make use of bleaching cream to hide fine facial hair. In such case, do not apply excessive bleach.

  • After using skin bleach, apply sunscreen lotion with SPF 30 before going out in the sun.

  • Avoid using soap; instead use a good quality face wash that suits your skin type.

  • Make cleansing, toning, and moisturising essential parts of your skin care routine.

Homemade skin bleach

People who are allergic to over-the-counter skin bleach products can bleach skin at home. Effective skin bleach can be made by using some natural ingredients from the kitchen shelf. Home remedies are proven to be highly effective solution on dark spots, blemishes, uneven complexion, and dark skin tone. Make natural skin remedies the part of your daily skin care routine and get flawless skin. Here are some homemade skin-whitening recipes to give your skin a natural glow.
  • Take a bowl and add one teaspoon of milk powder, 1 teaspoon of honey, and ½ teaspoon of almond oil. Mix it together and apply on your face and neck. Wash the face after 15 minutes.

  • Make a thick paste of a teaspoon of gram flour and 2 teaspoons of raw milk. Add few drops of lemon juice in it. Apply the mixture to the face and wash it off after 15 minutes.

  • Mix 2 teaspoons of tomato juice and a few drops of lemon juice together and apply it on face. Wash off after 15 minutes.

  • Take some fresh aloe Vera jel and massage it on all over the face. Let it dry for about 15 minutes before washing it off.
Skin bleach, if used appropriately will enhance your beauty. Blemishes are nightmarish. They may endanger your confidence. Nowadays bleaches for men are also available. Though dark men are considered to be handsome for ages, guys do desire to look fair. Skin bleaches make your desires to be fair come true. Do not be surprised if your mirror points at you when you ask, 'Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?'

Comments:   All the skin bleaching products contain some amount of harsh chemicals. But if you are using a quality product, I do no think so that you have to worry. Some skin whitening products are also available out there. If you are allergic to skin bleaches you can try out some other methods of getting fair skin or making fine hair light. According to me well I think dark skin is nice. If you prefer to be light, you can try using some makeup. One of my friends uses AMBI skin bleach since two years and she says it is effective and safe to use. But as some people with dark skin tone prefer to tan their skin, like that only people with dark skin tone prefer skin bleaching as they want to look fair.

Comments:   I have fine hair on my face and they are black in colour. I feel awkward because of extra facial hair. I started using skin bleach since two years and I am comfortable with it. I did patch test. I did not get any allergic reaction as such. One should not use skin bleach frequently. There is no need. There are many skin bleach creams and products available. If one product does not go well with your skin type, you can choose other products. But please do take patch test. You can not tell just by looking at the brand name whether it will affect your skin or not. Some people just avoid doing the patch test, which is not good. Skin bleaches are also for boys.

Comments:   Instead of think abt whitening the skin, have healthier skin. 1st If you have dark spots, get rid of it by using lactic acid, it gets rid of spots, wrinkles and other skin issues. it also lessens the pore sizes. once you have the younger skin resurface, then protect it by drinking lots of water, sunscreen even if you are in the house. here in Australia oil of olay hase a SPF 30 moisturiser, it very nice. dont forget to wash the sunscreen when you cum back from sun else it will darken the skin. other things to help is face packs. All the best.

Comments:   For anyone looking to use bleach, use one with kojic acid or gutathamine in it. NEVER use one with hydroquonique as it can cause skin cancer after long use an it also causes skin to become DARKER after time.

Comments:   Skin bleaching? Why would you even want to do that? Unless you´re doing it for hyperpigmentation? Facial hair bleaching is a whole another thing. But yea chemicals (both plantbased and humanmade) can be harsh on the skin, so use products wisely, and be happy with the skin you´re in.
