How To Bleach At Home Safely: Oxylife Crème Bleach With Glow Serum

All of us are aware that we should keep ourselves away from bleaching often. However once in a while it is important for us to indulge.I have sensitive dry skin, even a wonder ingredient like 'Haldi/Turmeric' gives me rashes, yes my skin is that sensitive :(
I once had a terrible incident in a reputed salon while bleaching, my skin turned red and started burning! Since then I have started bleaching at home as I just cant risk that incident again. In fact my mother recalls that she has been safely bleaching her face at home since 20-25 years.
Oxylife and VLCC are 2 brands which have good bleaching products in the Indian Market. Out of the two i prefer Oxylife as it delivers more drastic effects. This product comes with a whole kit- a pre bleach cream,a white creme, an activator, and a glow serum. The glow serum is a new introduction.

 The Oxylife Bleach is said to be ammonia free, which is a good thing. The price and ingredients are below-

My Procedure-

  • To begin with, i always prefer facial bleaching at night
  • First I wash and pat my skin dry
  • I secure my hair with a hair band to avoid bleaching my hair
  • Then I start by applying the pre-bleach cream. I make sure to apply it even in my neck area (you want your skin to look even)
  • After 2 minutes I start applying the mixed creme with activator on my skin ( I prefer to use lesser amount of activator than recommended in order to avoid reactions as I have super sensitive skin)
  • I begin with applying the bleach in my upper lip area first, so that it begins it's action fast.
  • Then I apply the bleach to the rest of my face and neck and leave it for a good 15 mins. If any extra bleach is left I use it on my hands or feet.
  • I never rub in the bleach, I just apply it with soft hands. After 15 mins I remove the bleach and wash with cold water. I also follow up with ice if needed.
  • After removal, I apply the glow serum provided.It makes me skin smooth and silky, it delivers a lovely glow. 
  • I never use a face wash or any other skin product after bleaching. 

I find that applying the bleach at night always delivers better results. That way my skin is not exposed to Sun, so the chances of post bleach reactions/irritation is further curtailed. The entire pack gives me 2 uses (if used only on the face and neck). The tingling sensation caused by this Bleach is very mild and bearable.

Last Words-

The Oxylife Creme Bleach is reasonably priced and is very easily available. Also among all other bleaching products available in the Indian Market I find that this one works best for me. I do not recommend bleaching regularly. However this product is recommended for those who bleach once in a while. But before application remember to do a patch test for sure!

So this is how I bleach my face safely. The procedure mentioned above works well for my skin.
