Face shaving is a beauty secret that has many benefits.
The idea of face shaving will make many cringe but after much research we are sold on it. In Japan there are salon dedicated to ‘kao sori’ a Japanese word that translates to English as ‘shaved face.’ In other places across the world it is known as Dermaplaning, a clinical term for using a facial razor to get rid of peach fuzz and exfoliate.
The reason why most women would never let a razor near their face is because it is thought that once you start shaving the hair will come out thicker and darker. This however, is an old wives’ tale and the hair will grow back exactly as its original texture and colour.
You don’t have to go to a Medspa or then even travel to Japan to try face shaving because you can actually do it at home on a weekly basis. Of course, you can’t use a regular razor, instead you need a curved head, single-edge and single-blade razor designed specifically for the face.
The shaving process is simple, all you need to do is make sure your face is dry and then place the razor at a 45-degree angle and pull it downwards. In just a few strokes you will notice the difference. Once finished just make sure you moisturise the face.
The reason why dermatologists and celebrities swear by face shaving is because it has many benefits, these include:
It exfoliates the skin
It brightens the complexion
It is anti-ageing and helps decrease lines
It helps to stimulate collagen
It eliminates facial hair and that peach fuzz
It helps absorb skincare products better
