Bleaching face or upper lip
- Bleaching has chemicals that merge into the skin and lighten facial hair. Technically it is not removal of superfluous hair but it makes it considerably less noticeable. There are three kinds of bleach, all unkind on the skin, but the degrees of harm may vary.
- Powder bleach: mix bleaching powder with liquid hydrogen peroxide and ammonia to form a thick liquid.
- Cream bleach: this is what you get readymade in the markets. Easiest to use but the most harmful.
- Results last for between two and six weeks and there's no re growth, since no hair has been lost. Bleaching is not suitable for coarse hair as the chemical in bleach makes hair more brittle an makes it stand erect.
