Could a bath in bleach be the ultimate way to keep skin looking younger? I used to think bleach was very dangerous, a substance to avoid at all times touching, smelling or drinking at all costs. But over the years I have learnt that actually bleach is a relatively safe substance, even in nature it degrades so rapidly that it poses very little danger.
So when I read this article on how vastly diluted bleach could actually rejuvenate the skin, I was surprised to read that the therapeutic effects of bleach has been used for decades to treat severe eczema. It seems that is very dilute concentrations(less than you find in your local pool) it has an antimicrobial properties as well as stopping certain singling in our bodies.
The body has incredible repair mechanisms built into it, and as is the case with a lot of other substances that would normally kill us at high concentrations, small doses can ramp up the immune system and make us live longer.
However I am not sure I am going to start adding bleach to my bath just yet, and I would not recommend that you do it until more studies have been done!
Would you take a bleach bath?
