i don’t think its a gud idea to use bleach over pimples as it will further aggravate the condition. :( treat the pimples first and then try treating the marks when the skin is free from acne

I have used it lot of times over acne & marks, but since i don’t have sensitive skin, it hasn’t caused any reactions

It really is not safe in my experience. I had used n it just became very aggravated n those pimples took a very long time to heal/disappear. After tat i avoid th spot of any pimple, if i use bleach.

In my experience, it’s safe, been doing it for years. Among Indian brands I’ve used Jolen without any reactions. Just make sure that the acne nodules/cysts aren’t “open” when you use bleach! That’ll just exacerbate the condition. It’s safe to use on scars.

I’d rather suggest powder bleach than a cream bleach.
You can bleach unless you have a super sensitive skin(Test: Does your skin turn too red while threading?? Then may be your skin is sensitive). :)

For marks you can you natural bleach like honey.

Do try patch test first. for scars only its not harm as such but bleaching agent make these scars more stubble & if you have sensitive skin dont use bleach. On pimples or cuts n burns never use bleach.It will aggravate infections
