You’ve seen it all over social media- people taking razors and shaving their face.
What seems invisible to the naked eye accumulates on the edge of the blade in a grey lump of yuck.
The takeaway is clear: there is a lot of dead skin, baby hair and general gunk just sitting on our face.
And all that dirt is dampening your glow, resulting in a dull complexion. No bueno.
So what is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that is intended to remove that outer dead layer of skin. It is a simple, safe, effective way to exfoliate skin from the comfort of your own home.
How does that benefit me and do I need it?
The main benefit of dermaplaning is that it enhances the skin’s overall texture without irritation, allowing a more even application of makeup, and allows skincare products to penetrate deeper. It also removes dead skin cells that tend to accumulate over time and can ultimately lead to acne
It is not a new technique, but often does not get as much airtime as its chemical exfoliant relatives. The facial razor is here to stay, as it’s clearing powers are unmatched.
Just remember to invest in an eyebrow razor and not a 3 blade classic razor for other body parts.
