Lightening Body Hair at Home

Is there any home method for lightening body hair? For example, if you have really dark arm hair, and want to lighten it. Is there anything simple and quick (and risk-free) to use for lightening you hair?

I don't know about lightening arm hair, but trimming with scissors works wonders, as do Nair wax strips.

You can buy a body hair lightener/bleach at the drug store or WalMart, my daughter, who has a lot of dark hair on her arms has done this for years. She used to wax, but got tired of doing that, so she just started bleaching the hair. Good Luck!

I haven't tried this on body hair but it works on my hair. Lemon juice and sun. AKA="sun in" No need to purchase it at the store, just apply and then sun bathe.

Jolen is a brand of hair lightners that works well,so does Sally Hansen. They are found in

WalMart, all drug stores and safe and easy to use.
