Applying Mehendi to hands and legs is a huge fashion. And we have so many Mehendi artists available with good creativity. It takes hours of effort and creativity to apply Mehendi and it lasts for almost 7-10 days. But sometimes it may take even longer to fade away and people search for all the ways possible to remove that Mehendi. In this post, we are providing natural remedies which will help you in fading your Mehendi soon.
1. A simple and easy way to remove Mehendi is to wash hands with soap, especially antibacterial soap. Do this as often as possible in a day until you find it fading away.
2. One of the common ways used for removing Mehendi is to use bleaching. It’s very effective and fades away the color easily. Any regular bleach available in the fancy stores will do the job.
3. If you are not comfortable with bleaching, then an ingredient with natural bleaching agent will do the same job. Lemon is the one ingredient known for its bleaching properties. Take juice of a lemon and rub your hands with that juice. It will help in fading the color of Mehendi.
4. Baking soda is also known for its bleaching properties. Make a paste of baking soda and lukewarm water and apply it on Mehendi and leave it for few minutes. After it is dried, gently exfoliate with your hands or use a loofah. You can even make a paste of lemon juice and baking soda and do this process.
5. Toothpaste – A toothpaste has bleaching agents which will help in lightening the teeth. So apply toothpaste on your Mehendi and leave it till it dries. Then rub your hands gently and wash them with clean water.
6. Olive oil – It acts as an emulsifier and helps in removing henna from your hands effectively. Dip a cotton ball in olive oil mixed with a pinch of salt and apply on the Mehendi. Leave it there for 10 minutes as it will help the oil to penetrate into the skin and then wash it off. Repeat this process at regular intervals. As olive oil is a good moisturizer, it won’t dry or harm your hands in any way.
