Precautions To Take While Using Face and Neck Bleach
Many women nowadays resort to bleaching their face and neck as a quick and efficient method of removal of hair. This is considered a better alternative to threading or waxing, which are both considerably painful processes, especially for those who have never had these procedures performed before and are amateurs in the world of skincare. However, one thing is to be understood and that is that face and neck bleaching is not actually a hair removal method; it simply lightens the color of your facial hair, thus making your skin seem brighter and fairer. Maybe this is why it is considered an easy way out as compared to the aforementioned options: seemingly all the benefits, but without any pain.
Bleaching your face and neck might make the skin glow more than before, but it's not much of a long-term option, especially when compared to options like threading. Therefore, this compels women to practice face and neck bleaching often, which is a complete no-no as in the long run, it may lead to them having patchy skin and acne breakouts. However, for those that do practice bleaching in a safe way, there are some things that they need to look out for before doing so:
Applying Bleach On a Dirty Face
Make sure that you have washed your face and neck well before bleaching. A dirty face would only call upon clogged pores, which would not only lead to you having rough and oily skin but are a direct call to pimples as well. Therefore, you should make sure that your skin is completely clean before any bleaching is to begin. It would be even better if after washing your skin, you apply pre-bleaching creams that are commercially available in all cosmetics markets as to make the skin smooth and prepare your face and neck for the bleaching process to begin.
Checking for Allergies
Before applying any certain bleach, always check the list of its ingredients to identify if any of them is one of those that are harmful to your health, or that you are allergic to. If you are unaware of your allergies, the best way to test such products is to first apply and use them on your palm or elbow to check out for allergies before using them on the sensitive skin of your face or neck. And do remember to make a list of your allergies for future reference if you turn out to have any!
Limiting Exposure To Bleach To Skin
As a standard precaution, one should never let bleach rest on any part of their face or neck for more than 15 minutes. Not only would this lead to itchy and irritated skin, but you would fail to achieve the glow you were looking for when you first began to use the face and neck bleach.
Only Apply On Healthy Skin
Before application, you should always make sure that all the skin of your face and neck is in optimal condition. Any skin that seems damaged, burnt, or bruised should not have contact with bleach in any way. This is due to the fact that exposed skin can react vigorously with the chemicals in the bleach, not only causing extreme pain but also situations that may very well be potentially dangerous.
Avoid Contact With The Sun
After bleaching your skin, you should sit in a room (preferably an air-conditioned one) for almost an hour. This would make the effect of the bleach settle in. Direct exposure of the sun’s rays directly after bleaching can lead to an ultimately darker skin, which would be the worst scenario one can look forward to.
Following these few simple tips and precautions will surely help you to achieve that fairer skin that most women desire. The usage of face and neck bleaches without any proper precautions will not only hamper the efficiency of the bleach but may lead to permanently discolored skin as well. Therefore, following these precautions is a must for all women who genuinely care about the well-being of their skin.
