Home Remedies for Facial Hair Bleaching

Though it is a completely natural occurrence, unwanted facial hair may appear unsightly. While numerous cosmetics manufacturers offer sometimes costly hair bleaching kits, home remedies present an alternative bleaching solution. As "bleaching" has become a generic term for lightening and doesn't always refer to the harsh chemical product, most home remedies are bleach-free. In fact, applying bleach to the face should always be avoided. Home remedies are often cost-effective, safe, natural and accessible.

  1. Lemon Juice

    • Lemon juice combined with sunlight lightens facial hair.

      Lemon juice serves as a common hair bleaching home remedy. Squeeze the juice of a few lemons diluted with water, a mixture of about one-third water and two-thirds lemon juice, into a container and soak the combo all over any unwanted facial hair, keeping your eyes closed if applying to the eyebrow area. Once the hair is coated, stand outside under direct sunlight and let it dry. You must use sunlight for drying; the ultraviolet rays of the sun coupled with the acidic qualities of lemon juice causes the lightening effect. Add a dash of olive oil to the mix to prevent the juice from over-drying hair. This remedy works best on dirty blond and light brown hair. The lightening effect will last until new roots in the color of your natural hair grow in.

    Other Food Remedies

    • Chamomile is a very subtle hair-lightening agent.

      Like lemon juice, other natural food remedies can bleach or lighten facial hair. Rhubarb powder mixed with water and dried via the ultraviolet rays of the sun subtly bleaches hair. Because honey contains natural hydrogen peroxide and iron, it has an oxidizing effect on hair. Try mixing three parts honey with one part hair conditioner and applying it to facial hair; let the mixture set for a few hours before rinsing. For hair that is already light in color, chamomile flowers can very subtly bleach facial hair. Boil the flowers, strain the water and apply the cool water to facial hair; let it rest for half an hour and rinse. Try different natural mixtures and repeated applications for the best results.

    Hydrogen Peroxide

    • Though more harsh than other at-home remedies, hydrogen peroxide is not as harsh as pre-made facial bleaches available at the drugstore. Use a Q-tip to apply pure, non-diluted hydrogen peroxide to a patch of hair near the neckline; this will serve as an unobtrusive test run before applying the chemical to facial hair. If the hair is lightened with no irritation, apply the hydrogen peroxide to facial hair and rinse it after a few hours. Ammonia serves a similar lightening purpose. Don't use these chemicals to bleach eyebrows or eyelashes as they may harm the eyes.
