Don’t freak out! But today we’re going to talk about shaving our faces.
Yes, I know that most of us are women, and most people think we shouldn’t shave our faces, but they’re WRONG!
I’m one of those people plagued with a fuzzy face. I’ve got peach fuzz all over my cheeks and jaw.
Most of the time you can’t really tell, but if the sun hits me the right way, I look like I’ve got a full-on blonde beard.
It’s not my favorite look. Plus, makeup clings to it, which makes it even more noticeable.
So, one night while I was perusing the interwebs, I came across an article where this girl was talking about how she shaved her face! Needless to say, I was intrigued… I learned that there’s actually a procedure done at the dermatologist’s office called Dermaplanin, which is literally where they go in with a little razor, just like the one I have, and they shave your face.
Not only does it get rid of the fuzz, but it’s also lightly exfoliating, as it scrapes off the top layer of dead skin.
Oh, and you can do it at home! No need to ring up an expensive dermatology bill. All you need is an inexpensive eyebrow razor, which I get from my local Sally Beauty Supply. A lot of people use the Tinkle Razors from Amazon instead, but I haven’t tried them yet. They’re next on my list.
To use the razor, hold the blade at a 45-degree angle to your skin, and run it lightly down your face…in the direction of the hair growth! Keep working around the areas that need it.
Another area to cover is the upper lip. No need to keep a fuzzy mustache if you don’t want to!
I know what you might be thinking. “But if I shave my face, won’t it grow back darker and thicker?”
The answer is NO! I’ve been shaving my face for probably about a year now, and my regrowth is exactly the same as it was before I started. I’ve read quite a few articles about it, and everyone has said the same thing.
I’m a slave to doing it now! You’ll be shocked at how well your makeup goes on and how smooth your skin feels. Another great thing is that I only have to do it about once a month. It’s so low maintenance, but your face feels like a baby’s butt!
Do you think you’ll ever shave your face, or have you done it before? Comment down below, and let me know how it went! 🙂
