7 reasons why you should avoid bleaching your face



Bleaching the face

Face bleaching is the process of lightening the skin tone by lowering the amount of melanin that is contained in the skin by the use of chemical agents, most often involving hydrogen peroxide or other bleaching chemicals.

Skin Irritation:

Especially for those who have sensitive skin, bleaching chemicals may be quite harsh on the skin, causing irritation, redness, and even chemical burns if they come into contact with it.

Allergic Reactions:

There is a possibility that some people have sensitivities to the components included in bleaching products, which may result in severe allergic reactions and rashes on the skin.

Increased Sun Sensitivity:

Bleaching may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, which can increase the chance of being sunburned as well as other adverse effects of the sun.

Uneven Skin Tone: 

Bleaching done incorrectly may cause your skin to have an uneven tone, with certain regions of your face having a lighter or darker tone than others.


Skin Discoloration: 

Bleaching products, when used improperly or in excess, may lead to a condition known as ochronosis, which causes the skin to darken permanently. This condition can be caused by a skin discoloration.

Reduced Depth of the Dermis:

Bleaching chemicals have the potential to reduce the skin's ability to form a protective barrier and may also result in the skin's thinning, both of which make the skin more vulnerable to harm and the effects of aging.
