The mixture of hydrogen peroxide with a little water should be applied to the areas above the upper lip, repeating the process every day.

Still, you should limit the frequency of repetition of this treatment if you notice some irritation.

The advantage of these creams is that it’s much easier to apply and to prepare. Thus one of the easiest ways is to mix the hydrogen peroxide with a shaving cream. It also sticks to the skin easier. After half an hour you need to wash the mixture and apply a nourishing cream.

b. In addition, you can also mix the hydrogen peroxide with liquid soap and add a couple of drops of ammonia mixing all with Vaseline. After several minutes, when the mixture dries on the skin, you need to wash it off with warm water. If you feel the skin burning or experience other unpleasant feelings, you need to wash it off right away.

The mixture needs to be applied directly to the hair and kept there for some 10 minutes. This can be used daily.
