What Are Henna Faux Freckles?
The Henna faux freckle is the process of creating fake freckles anywhere on the face or the body. The stains will typically last longer than the regular makeup but less than a freckle tattoo though! Making faux freckles is quick, easy, and smudge-free. And henna is the best organic option to get chemical-free, skin-safe freckles. Henna is a natural dye that is known for its hair & skin coloring properties. It stains the skin for several weeks after which the color gradually fades away. Thus, henna emerges as the best product for faux freckles.
Note: The facial skin can be pretty sensitive. And the sensitivity fluctuates from person to person. If you have super-sensitive skin, you might be unsure whether to go for faux freckles henna or not. A patch test is recommended to know how your skin reacts to henna. An allergic reaction is not something you want on your face. Apply some amount of henna behind your ear or your elbow crease. Allow it to dry for some time and wash it off. If there is no allergic reaction even after 48 hours, you can safely use it on your face.
Are Henna Freckles Safe?
Just like you apply henna on your hands or legs, you apply henna on your face for freckles. Is henna safe to use? Not all. Commercial henna powders contain harmful chemicals that may damage your skin permanently. An organic henna made purely out of plants is safe for your skin. You can either use makeup to create freckles or get organic henna freckles that last for a few weeks.
