Do you use hydrogen peroxide in your beauty routine? Believe it or not, peroxide can replace many of the beauty products that you’re paying a lot of money for and do a better job. Check out this list of beauty tips that will have you stocking up on this amazing little brown bottle.
How much do you know about peroxide? Did you know that our bodies naturally produce hydrogen peroxide through the white blood cells. Did you know that the chemical element for it is H2O2? Which means it’s made of water and oxygen with an extra oxygen atom. Because it is made up of just water and oxygen it makes it the perfect non-toxic addition to your beauty routine.
Beauty Tips Using Peroxide
To help clear up skin from breakouts, dab the pimples with a cotton ball dipped in peroxide.
To brighten and whiten dull fingernails, rub your nails with a cotton ball soaked with peroxide. Repeat daily.
To gradually give your hair highlighs, mix equal parts peroxide and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on wet hair and comb through. Repeat until the desired color is achieved.
Instead of purchasing expensive mouthwashes that taste nasty, try rinsing your mouth with peroxide. Peroxide is an effective way to kill germs.
To whiten your smile, hold one cap full of peroxide in your mouth for 10 minutes. Repeat daily to achieve a bright smile.
To make your own toothpaste that not only kills germs but whitens teeth, make a paste using peroxide and baking soda.

I frequently use peroxide to rinse. It’s great for healing sore spot inside the mouth as well as whitening the teeth. I might have to see the 50/50 spray on my hair. Maybe it’ll make the gray…I mean glitter in my hair less noticeable. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such useful tips today!
I used to use peroxide on my hair when I was younger, I never thought about it hiding the grays, or glitter as you have referred to it.

I make my own toothpaste with baking soda, peroxide, peppermint extract, and activated charcoal. I drink a LOT of coffee and this toothpaste keeps the stains at bay.
What a great use for peroxide!
