When you think of shaving your face, you think of Caroline Manzo, who admitted to doing it, of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, lathering up and using a Gillette Trac II Razor. But the real image you should be getting is a daintier one, let me explain.
In the beauty world, it's called 'Dermaplaning' and I am so happy this has become my solution for the ‘fuzz’ on my face. I believe and often share we need to embrace our beauty flaws, especially because many of them make us unique. BUT, I just can’t embrace my hairiness, never could, and now I found a solution that isn’t expensive or time consuming to get rid of unwanted facial hair. It’s called Dermaplaning, which sounds a whole lot nicer than ‘shaving’.
What is it?Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that uses a sharp blade to scrape the surface of the skin removing dead skin cells along with that unwanted peach fuzz.
Where is this done? You can have it done in-office by a licensed professional, such as a dermatologist, aesthetician, or nurse and a session can cost anywhere from $40 to $150, depending on where you go.
OR, you can do what I choose, use an at-home tool. One that I like and has received many positive reviews is Tinkle (It's touted as being used as an eyebrow razor, but just ignore that.) For under $5.00, this dainty razor does it all… exfolitates, and removes peach fuzz while being safe for your face. Yes, it’s similar to shaving, but it offers a more feminine approach to this beauty routine and I view it as a treatment. I have used this without ever nicking myself, and here’s a tip, downward strokes only, following the growth of the hair. Very light gentle strokes, works just fine.
There is one at-home tool that is more expensive called DERMAFLASH. It is an at-home device with a goofproof blade that replicates the in-office treatment quite precisely. A specially formulated sonic vibration removes the dead skin cells and built up surface debris, while sweeping away pesky peach fuzz. I have used tool, which works well but comes with a high cost at $189.00, however, I have experienced trouble with charging it and turning the vibration on and off. I feel it is important to consider this and read the reviews, since it is costly.
What I love most about this, results are immediate. My skin feels so smooth, the smoothest it has felt since I was in my twenty’s, and there is absolutely no downtime. I especially love to apply my favorite vitamin C serum and overnight mask, because I can feel it seeping in and working its benefits. Or, for a Red Carpet Glow, use right before a big night and you’ll have a flawless canvas for your makeup application.
Skip lasers, bleaching or hair removers, and invest in this. You will be so happy you finally found a solution to your unwanted hair. I so wish I know about this when I was younger. My skin never felt so soft.
