I didn't think you used regular bleach to do that - no, I have no need to bleach my face, tho I did my hair a few times - when I was younger

Oh the one I used was the one for the face.. That's the common one that my neighbors use and it is special for the face. I have never bleached my hair though, I think they make the hair rough. Have a wonderful day ahead.

Well, that was back when my already dark blonde hair looked even more dark than blonde... now I'd have to color it to look blonde... because a lot of it is white!

That sounds so scary to me! Sorry, I have never even heard of doing that before. I hope you will be okay if you do that. I really don't think you need it though, your beautiful! I don't use bleach for anything but the laundry. It is so strong and I am actually afraid of the chemicals in it.

hahah, yeah for me also, i used to get scared of the chemicals in it but i see that I have small small fine hair on my face that is looking ugly so I thought of bleaching my face. Oh I did and I can see and feel the difference. I look different. It worked well on me. Have a wonderful day ahead.

Hi there riyauro, Well i think that bleaching is good just make sure that you do it properly and that you have consulted your dermatologist about it some bleaching agents may cause severe redness and it might take awhile before the full effect occurs anyway i hope it turns out great and again it might take a while and check with your derma.

I've never bleached my face before. But I would be careful with that too, to make sure you have no side affects or anything like that. I would say try it on a small area to make sure you are not allergic first. But I hope all turns out well for you.

Respected mylotter friend riyauro, In case if you are going to bleach for the first time you check its effect on your skin. Sometimes those bleaches reacts with the skin badly. Be careful. Happy mylotting! :)

You need to be cautious when your going to do it on your own. You need to do a patch test so you would know if you're allergic to it or not. I do it with the help of my friend who's working on a spa. Share us the result when you're done with your facial bleaching ;D Goodluck and stay beautiful.

hmm I will be cautious. I have no one here to help me and I really don't wanna go to parlor for those because they use the same product and charge a bomb. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

hi i wonder how did it went? i personally do not recommend that sis as bleach is quite harsh for your skin particularly in your facial part.. maybe you should try to exfoliate by using brown sugar.. and then you can use an egg white for a mask and it is safe too

I agree, these things are perfectly safe and have a great effect. You can also exfoliate with cornflour.

I am a Filipina, and I have a year-round tan. Well, not exactly tan-tanned, I'm still shades lighter than being dusky but still it's not really fair or light. I'm okay with it but of course I would like to try being fair and how I would look. My husband doesn't want me to use any bleach or any whitening product, even if it will be just to even out my tan. I guess being Caucasian, he have this perpetual dislike for fair skin, lol! Let us know how it went for you, I might try it if I can sneak in in my derma's clinic lol!

Hi raine, I did it and now I look fairer. I have a wheatish complexion and now i see some obvious change. I like it this way. My neighbors were telling that I look lot fairer because I was sun burnt also. it was too sunny and I was riding bike without any pullover. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Hi, I haven't tried bleaching my face but if I would decided to do so, I think I will go to the nearest facial clinic to get this kind of service. I fear that I won't be able to do it properly so I will just let the experts do it especially it is our face. You first try the solution at the back of your hand to know if your skin won't react to it. Be very careful. Hope it turns out well.

Yeah I would do that but I am on a budget and I can't afford the high rate in the parlor. They use the same one in the parlor and charge a bomb. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Hi, Riyauro! I hope that everything went OK. I was scared when reading the comments in this discussion. I've never done this and I wouldn't dare to do it by myself. And sometimes products in the stores are not good. Anyway, I wish you to have a great time at the carnival!
