Whether you have embarrassing chest and arm hair or a fuzzy upper lip, using bleach cream at home helps combat the issue. Making your own body hair bleach recipe at home gives you the power to choose the right ingredients to get the job done. This is also a cost-friendly alternative to expensive salon visits and commercial bleaching creams. Using a few basic ingredients can give you the cream you need to lighten embarrassing body and facial hair.

Items you will need

  • 1/2 oz. soy butter
  • 1/2 oz. rose hip oil
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 tsp. borax
  • Glass bowl
  • 1/2 oz. ammonia
  • 2 oz. peroxide
  • Plastic spoon
  • 12 oz. glass jar
Step 1

Add the soy butter, rose hip oil, distilled water and borax to the glass bowl. These materials are all available in a craft supply shop or online. The rose hip oil and and soy butter add softening properties to your skin.

Step 2

Microwave the bowl on high for three minutes. This melts the ingredients together.

Step 3

Stir in the ammonia and peroxide with a plastic spoon. The solution will immediately froth up into a thick, billowy cream. The peroxide and ammonia, together, lighten your hair.

Step 4

Pour the warm, frothy mix into the glass jar. Let it sit uncovered until it cools to room temperature.

Step 5

Cover the jar and refrigerate until future use.

Tips

  • To use, rub the cream on the afflicted area, and wait 15 minutes. Rinse away with lukewarm water. Let it sit on the area for longer if your hair is dark and persistent.
