Removing Nicotine Stains from Facial Hair

If you are a smoker and you have a mustache and a beard, then this article is definitely for you. The exhaled smoke from the cigarette leaves a brownish stain on the mustache which is difficult to remove. Here are some tips on how you can remove those unsightly brownish stains from your mustache and beard.

You can trim down all the tar stained hair off the mustache. Use a clarifying shampoo to wash your entire mustache and repeat this several times until the stain has been reduced or completely removed.

You can also use a smokers toothpaste and apply it to your mustache. If you want to increase the bleaching power of the toothpaste, you can add baking soda to it. You can repeat this process until the stain is removed or unrecognizable.

Hydrogen peroxide is a good bleaching agent and it is also mild. Get a clean toothbrush and brush on the hydrogen peroxide on the mustache and leave it for several minutes before you rinse. If you want to accelerate the bleaching process, you can sit under the sun.

If all the mentioned process doesnt work, you can buy a bleach for facial hair. This bleach is a cream that can lighten the color of the facial hair so you should apply this only to the stained area. Follow the instruction manual carefully when using this product.

If you are a heavy smoker and the nicotine stains still persist, then you can opt for mustache coloring. The packaging has the instructions on how you can use the facial hair coloring properly.
