Tips to remove henna


1. Soak in salt water

You may want to start the henna removal process by soaking your body in water with an exfoliating agent, such as sea salt. Epsom salt, or even table salt, works too. The sodium chloride in salt can help nourish living skin cells and remove dead ones.

Pour about half a cup of salt into the warm water of a half-full bathtub and let it soak for twenty minutes.

2. Exfoliating scrub

Rubbing the skin with an exfoliating gel for the face or body can help remove the henna quickly. Using one that contains a natural exfoliating agent, such as apricot kernels or brown sugar, minimizes skin irritation.

Make sure to use a moisturizer or apply coconut oil after exfoliating your henna tattoo.

3. Olive oil and salt

Mixing a cup of olive oil with three to four tablespoons of sea salt creates a mixture that can loosen the henna tint from your skin while exfoliating the fading tattoo.

Use a cotton swab to completely cover your skin and let the olive oil soak in before gently rubbing off the salt with a damp cloth.

4. Antibacterial soap

The high alcohol content and exfoliating beads of antibacterial soap can help remove henna dye. Rub your hands together several times a day with your favorite antibacterial soap, but be careful not to dry out your skin.

Apply a moisturizing cream to your body after using an antibacterial soap to get rid of the henna.

5. Baking soda and lemon juice

Lemon juice is a proven, trusted source skin lightening agent. Baking soda and lemon juice can work together to lighten the henna dye and make it fade faster. However, never apply baking soda and lemon juice to your face.

Use half a cup of warm water, a heaping tablespoon of baking soda, and two teaspoons of lemon juice. Apply this mixture with a cotton swab and allow it to penetrate the skin before removing it. Keep repeating until no henna is visible.

6. Makeup remover

Any silicone-based makeup remover can work as a gentle way to remove henna dye.

Use a cotton swab or Q-tip to fully saturate your henna tattoo and then remove the makeup remover with a dry cloth. You may need to repeat this a couple of times.

7. Micellar water

Micellar water can bind to the henna dye and help lift it off your skin. This method is especially gentle on the skin.

Make sure you thoroughly soak your skin with the micellar water and allow your skin to absorb it. Then apply a little pressure while rubbing your skin to dry it.

8. Hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide can lighten the appearance of your skin, but this method may take a couple of tries to remove the henna. Use diluted hydrogen peroxide for cosmetic use and apply it liberally to your henna tattoo area.

After several applications, the tattoo should be gone beyond visibility.

9. Whitening toothpaste

Put the whitening ingredients in your toothpaste to good use by applying a generous amount to your henna tattoo and rubbing it in.

Let the toothpaste dry before using an old toothbrush to gently rub off the toothpaste.

10. Coconut Oil and Raw Sugar

A mixture of room temperature (melted) coconut oil and raw cane sugar makes a powerful exfoliating agent.

Rub coconut oil into your henna tattoo and allow it to absorb into your skin before applying a layer of raw sugar on top. Rub sugar over your tattoo before applying pressure with a loofah or washcloth to remove oil and sugar from your skin.

11. Hair conditioner

A hair conditioning product meant to moisturize the hair can also remove the henna.

Apply the conditioner to the tattoo and make sure your skin has time to fully absorb it. Rinse with warm water.

12. Go swimming

Chlorinated water in a public pool might be just what you need to remove the henna from your skin and get some exercise in the process. Hit the pool for forty minutes or so, and any signs of henna on your skin will likely fade beyond recognition.

Food to go

Even if you have trouble removing the henna dye from your skin with the methods described above, you won't have to be patient for long. Henna dye is not permanent and should go away on its own within three weeks if you shower every day.

If you have an allergic reaction to henna, trying to get rid of the tattoo probably won't solve the problem. Talk to a dermatologist about any negative reactions or marks on your skin.

Do you regret the matching henna tattoo you and your best friend got that faded into a stain? It is not necessary to rub the skin. It's possible to quickly remove henna with items you probably have around the house.

Why is this temporary tattoo so hard to get rid of? Henna is made from the leaves of a flowering shrub (Lawsonia inermis), also known as the henna tree, which is ground into a paste. The dye in the leaves is what stains your skin (similar to those pesky turmeric or beet stains).

This ancient temporary tattoo art, mehndi, can last up to 2 weeks on your skin. Henna can also be used as a natural way to color hair.

No matter where you have henna, once it fades, you'll want to remove it quickly. This is how you can get rid of that henna tint for good.

how to get rid of henna on skin

Note: Many of these methods can dry or irritate the skin. Stop if your skin starts to feel sore or irritated.

1. Soak in salt water

Why not treat yourself to a little self-care by taking a warm bath while the henna is removed? The sodium chloride in the salt helps nourish skin cells and removes dead ones.

Add 1/2 cup of sea salt or Epsom salt to a half-full tub of water and let it soak for 20 minutes.

2. Sugar and coconut oil scrub

We're pretty sure coconut oil is a godsend. It can be used for cooking, baking, lip balm, body moisturizer, you name it. Add a bit of sugar and it can help remove your henna tattoo.

Rub some melted or room temperature coconut oil over the tattoo, letting it soak. Next, apply a layer of raw cane sugar on top and then gently rub with a washcloth or loofah.

3. Olive oil and salt

Skip the bread dip because this oil is for your skin. Mixing sea salt and oil can dull and exfoliate the skin.

Take 1 cup of olive oil and 3 to 4 tablespoons of sea salt. Apply to the skin and let the mixture penetrate for at least 10 minutes. Remove with a warm cloth.

4. Lemon juice

Lemons can naturally lighten skin as well as blemishes (goodbye pesky henna!). Cut a lemon into slices, rub over the tattooed area for 2-3 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. Dry and moisturize.

5. Baking soda and lemon juice

Mixing baking soda and lemon juice will create a chemical reaction that can also lighten and eventually remove the henna.

Mix equal parts baking soda and lemon juice and apply to tattoo (try 1 tablespoon of each to start), leaving for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Repeat this once a day and moisturize until the henna is removed.

6. Baby oil

Baby oil (also known as mineral oil) is an easy way to dissolve pigments like henna tattoos. Rub baby oil on the tattoo and leave it for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

7. Body or facial exfoliating gel

Henna can be quickly removed with a body or facial scrub. Using a product that contains rose hips or brown sugar can also help alleviate any irritation issues.

8. Hair conditioner

A conditioner is designed to moisturize your hair and will do the same for your henna tattoo (while you're removing it). Apply a layer of conditioner to the tattoo and allow it to absorb before rinsing off with lukewarm water.

9. Shaving

Have you ever felt like you completely lost your holiday tan after shaving? Well, shaving exfoliates the skin, which removes dead skin cells (RIP tan).

This can help with henna tattoo removal because the layer in which the tattoo pigment appears can be exfoliated. Use shaving cream or your usual shaving product and shave the tattooed area. Be sure to apply a moisturizing cream or lotion afterwards.

10. Soap and warm water

This is an OG method, but with time and patience, the soap does the job. Rubbing the henna with warm water and soaps helps remove the pigment from the skin. Repeat this several times a day and watch out for dryness. Remember to use a moisturizer afterwards (your skin will need it!).

Note: A high-alcohol antibacterial soap and scouring beads can be a very helpful method of removing henna. But, it can really dry out your skin.

11. Witch Hazel

If you want a more natural approach, you can use witch hazel to fade and remove that pesky henna tattoo. Apply it to the tattoo with a cotton ball or cotton swab and allow it to absorb. Then remove it with a dry cloth. Repeat several times a day and moisturize your thirsty skin.

12. Micellar water

Micellar water cleanses the skin with particles called micelles, which break down

in oil, dirt, makeup and other unwanted pigments like henna. Use a cloth to gently rub against the skin and rinse with lukewarm water.

Pro Tip: It's also great for removing waterproof eye makeup.

13. Hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide has been used to whiten teeth and lighten hair. If you have diluted peroxide on hand, apply it directly to the henna tattoo. Try it several times until you see it fade.

14. Makeup remover

A simple silicone-based makeup remover can do the trick to get rid of your henna tattoo. Use a cotton ball or cotton swab to rub the tattoo. Let it soak into the tattoo and then remove it with a dry cloth. To repeat
