Darker hair on the face can stand out against the skin. Although waxing is an option, skin on the face is often more sensitive than other parts of the body, so a full facial waxing session can damage the skin. Regrowth of hair will be visible between waxing sessions. Hair bleaching is easier on the skin and simpler to do at home than waxing, although it still can damage the skin, depending on the ingredients you use. This bleach uses peroxide, making it more effective but less gentle.
