|Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a colourless, liquid chemical that occurs naturally. But in the beauty community, it is synthesized in the lab at a fixed concentration - usually between 3 to 9.5%. It has multiple uses for skin, hair nails and teeth as well. However, it has to be used carefully and with a lot of caution, in the right formulation and dilution, to get the best benefit out of it.
1. Hydrogen Peroxide for skin -
Hydrogen peroxide uses for skin can be divided into two categories:
1. Aesthetic uses:
For beautification, hydrogen peroxide helps eliminate skin discolouration, brown spots, acne scars and blemishes - only when used very carefully in the right diluted concentration.
Disinfection of open wounds with the release of oxygen in the form of froth or foam to remove dead skin cells and clean the affected area (debridement). This helps prevent further infection.
The use of hydrogen peroxide for skin should take your skin type into consideration. According to Dr. Sravya, it does not suit dry skin at all and can cause a lot of irritation, peeling, flaking, scaling and stinging. So, acne and skin-lightening on dry skin should be very carefully done.
2. Hydrogen peroxide for teeth -
Hydrogen peroxide is often used as a remedy to whiten teeth. Diluted H2O2 solutions or in the form of a paste can help remove stains from your teeth caused by foods and beverages. However, misuse of hydrogen peroxide for teeth can have multiple side effects, including permanent damage to the enamel. Make sure to be cautious while using hydrogen peroxide on the skin and only do so after a recommendation from a medical expert.
