7 Tricks to Erase Hair Dye Stains From Your Skin

If you just changed your hair color with a common dye and it left stains on your skin, but don’t worry! Numerous products can help you remove those marks and spots from your forehead, ears, neck, and hands without any hassle.

5-Minute Crafts will explain how to remove pigment from your skin with 7 simple remedies.

1. Soap and water

This tip is a go-to for non-permanent hair dyes. Put a little bit of soap on a damp cloth until it foams up. Rub it to remove the pigment from the stained area. Then rinse what’s left of the soap with warm water. If the stain doesn’t go away, try one of the other methods described below.

2. Baby oil

You can use baby oil on your face since it’s a mild product and won’t irritate your skin. Apply it with a cotton ball and leave it on for several hours or overnight. Remove the excess oil with a tissue. The stains should have disappeared at this point. If you don’t have baby oil at home, try disposable makeup remover wipes that contain oil or olive oil.

3. Vaseline

Vaseline can be used before or after you dye your hair. By applying petroleum jelly along your hairline, you can prevent stains that could result from the tint. This also works to remove pigment from the skin. Apply it to the stained area and massage. Wash it out with cold water when you see that it acquires a darker tone. If necessary, you can leave the product to act overnight, just like directed in the last trick.

4. Toothpaste

Toothpaste will help remove tint from your skin. Put a thin layer on the stained area and massage for a minute. Remove the product with a damp cloth or with warm running water. You can repeat the process if the stain remains. Leave this for occasional and only use it to clean stains from your face.

5. Baking soda and soap

Baking soda has multiple uses, from home to cosmetics, and this is yet another one. Combine 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of liquid hand soap. Cover the stained area with the mixture and rub it in for a few minutes. Then remove the product with warm water. Although this method is not recommended for facial skin, it works wonders on hands and arms.

6. Hydrogen peroxide

If the stains persist, you can rely on hydrogen peroxide to remove the dye from the skin. Soak a cotton ball in the solution and gently rub the blotted area. Proceed carefully and don’t rub too roughly, to avoid hurting your skin.

7. Vinegar

Another effective stain remover is vinegar. Dip a cotton ball in vinegar and softly rub the pigmented area. Be cautious, as you could injure the skin when trying to remove the colored spots.
