Women are no longer using bleach for solely cleaning purposes… Let us introduce you to Clorox Facials.
According some Internet forums, bleach has anti-aging and renewal benefits that are driving women to create their own DIY home facials.
Commonly known to remove clothes stains and disinfect floors, bleach is an inexpensive product that can easily be attained. Women everywhere are intrigued by anything that will make them look better, especially if it is at a low cost.
Dermatologist Dr. Shapiro told ABCNews.com “I wouldn’t recommend trying the bleach facial at home. . . We are not chemists, and we cannot produce the exact dilution rate the Stanford scientists used.”
Indeed, this is a dangerous trend that women are turning to for beauty because bleach can burn the skin at high level amounts.
According to a study at Stanford University School of Medicine, “Animals bathed in the bleach solution experienced less severe skin damage and better healing and hair regrowth than animals bathed in water.”
This is what’s leading U.S. women trust the publicized effects of bleach when used as an at home facial.
Shapiro says they, “treat skin problems with bleach based creams…bleach can be a potentially promising product for anti-aging based on this study. But it will need a great amount of work.”
Bleach still has a long way to go to prove its safeness and rejuvenating properties.
