As someone with sensitive and acne prone skin, getting my face bleached has always been a challenge and hence I had to look further and find ways through which I could lighten my facial hair through natural means and not get rashes on my face.
Getting your skin bleached at salons is way less cheap than getting your facial hair waxed or lasered off. Women rely heavily on facial bleaching to lighten their complexion which is a misconception and leads to the skin getting damaged.
Bleaching your face regularly can lead to discoloration on your face and along with this skin allergies can come to the surface. A very common side effect of facial bleaching is skin irritation that takes place, involving extreme redness and stinging of one’s skin.Therefore I came up with the following D.I.Y to lighten my facial hair at home without any side effects.3 ingredients D.I.Y facial mask
- 1 lemon (or half a lemon if your skin is hypersensitive)
- A tea spoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
- A clay mask(I use Freeman’s chocolate and strawberry mask)
Thoroughly mix all these ingredients together until it gets attains a paste type consistency and then proceed to apply it on your face and down your neck. The mask will dry down in fifteen to twenty minutes depending on how thick of a layer of the mask you applied and will cleanse your face thoroughly while removing any impurities. The lemon in this mask acts as nature’s bleach, whereas the apple cider vinegar reduces any fine lines on your face as well as it minimizes the appearance of pores. If your skin is very sensitive do a test patch first on a small region of your face or behind your ears, for good measures. The key to any mask working and showing its true results is if you use the mask consistently. Personally it took me up to three to four uses of this mask for my facial hair to lighten down and for me to see proper results, as you can see below.
