A warning about hydrogen peroxide on the skin, especially the delicate skin around the eyes: hydrogen peroxide thins the skin and is a bleaching agent. For a period of several months, I used peroxide on my face to clean it and to reduce wrinkles. The result was that the area around my eyes became severely affected with melasma. Basically the skin had thinned so drastically that it was super affected (damaged) by the sun. Luckily I had a great facialist step in to do damage control through the use of gentle peels to bring up the deep damage over a period of about a year. She was SHOCKED when she heard that I had used peroxide on my face. Peroxide is great for the teeth and cleaning cuts but please think twice about damaging your face with it. I'm pretty sure I would have less lines if I had never used it.
