Many people say hydrogen peroxide can whiten skin, is this true? I thought hydrogen peroxide is used to remove wax from the ear.


Is this why honey is used to lighten, because it contains hydrogen peroxide? Can we just buy a solution of Hydrogen peroxide and use it, then?

Please be careful with hydrogen peroxide. It lightened the hair on my face to a burnt orange that looked strange against my dark brown skin. People kept asking what happened to my face.

Hydrogen Peroxide cannot be used to lighten skin, it does not inhibit melanin production. It does bleach hair. It is not recommended to use HP on skin because is oxidative, creating free radical damage. I do use it every once in a great while when I have a pimple that keeps re-filling and getting infected.

It may lighten for like 5 minutes, but your original color will return. I wouldnt advice you to apply that on your face as it wil burn...in a bad way. And it's not healthy for the skin.
