New Delhi, Lifestyle Desk. Bleach Side Effects: We all want our skin to be flawless and beautiful at all times. For this, we also use many types of hacks and beauty treatments every day. One of which is the use of bleach on the skin, which is quite common. By bleaching, you get rid of dark spots with an even-tone instantly. Also, bleaching the face also hides unwanted hair.

Especially people use it to remove tanning. But have you ever thought that daily bleaching benefits or harms the skin? The answer is no! When you apply bleach to the face, you are applying chemicals to the skin, which also have negative effects. You will not feel its damage immediately, but in the long run it has a bad effect on the skin.

So let’s know some of the disadvantages of bleaching the skin:

  • Daily use of bleach makes your skin thinner. This can lead to wounds, stretch marks and other skin problems. Not only this, it is also difficult for the skin cuts and wounds to heal by applying bleach.
  • Because some products used to bleach the face contain mercury, it also increases the chances of mercury poisoning.
  • Experts believe that bleaching the skin can cause dermatitis. In this condition the skin becomes flaky and itchy on it.
  • Some bleaches also contain steroids and regular use of such products can also lead to steroid acne.
  • Bleach can also cause skin irritation and inflammation, and it may take several days for the skin to return to normal.
  • Excessive use of bleach creams containing hydroquinone can also cause pigmentation on the skin.
  • Bleach products can also cause allergic reactions and can lead to watery eyes.
