Bleaching dark facial hair does not have to be a painful or expensive process. You can purchase over-the-counter bleaching products at your local grocery store, or you can get the same results without having to spend the extra money by making a homemade bleach. There are a couple of things you can do to make your own bleach and do it right in the comfort of your own home!

Cut a whole tomato in half using a sharp knife. Place the tomato on the part of the face where you want to bleach unwanted hair. Why tomato? They act as natural hair bleachers.

Hold the tomato in place over dark facial hair for several minutes. The maximum time you should keep it on your face is four minutes.

Rinse any tomato juice or residue from your face. If you still think the unwanted hair is too dark, you can repeat the process using the same tomato.

Add 1/2 tsp. of sugar to the paste mixture using your fingers and massage into your skin. Leave the paste and sugar mixture on your face for up to five minutes. It's not recommended leaving it on for more than 10 minutes, though, so be sure to keep track of time.
