    • MYO: Body Hair Bleach

      Make your own gentle 'Body Hair Bleach' to lighten certain areas that you find unattractive as is! This simple recipe can be made in just a couple minutes time, but should never be used around the eyes!

      You'll Need:
      Soap Flakes
      1/4 cup peroxide
      1 tsp ammonia

      Mix ingredients together until its a paste, spread on hair and let sit for 15 minutes then wash out. Repeat every few days until hair has no color. Do this on a monthly basis.
      DO NOT USE ON EYEBROWS OR EYELASHES!

        You'll have to "shave" a bar of soap to make your own soapflakes. Years ago Ivory used to sell boxes of soapflakes, but they've been discontinued.

        I would use a gentle, non-perfumed soap such as Ivory.

        Is this safe for the upper lip also?
