Hydrogeb peroxide?
Oct 15, 2004
is it bad to put hydrogen peroxide all over your face? what about using it just for over blemishes? does any one use it?

thanks :)
Believe it or not, I have used rubbing alcohol as a toner on a daily basis and have had no harsh consequences. You'd think it would dry my skin out horribly! Actually it gets out so much more dirt than my regular toner ever does. So I don't think you'd have a problem with hydrogen peroxide, other than the fact that it could "bleach" your skin.
I actually got the idea to use alcohol b/c my roommate is an aestetician for a dermatologist and brought him this microdermabrasion stuff for me. Before applying it, she had me clean my face with alcohol. I don't do it every day anymore, but when I was it wasn't causing any problems.
There has been some controversy over the use of hydrogen peroxide due to the fact that it releases free radicals when you put it on your skin (supposedly). I guess it is advised that you do not use it all over your face. Personally, I have spot-treated a few uglies with it and it does work pretty well. I just hope I'm not causing any harm...I guess I don't understand how it could be sold as an antiseptic if it is potentially dangerous....
