Ok, so apparently women shaving their faces or โ€œdermaplaningโ€ has been a thing for a while now. As usual Iโ€™m a little late to the game...๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I only recently heard about it from a friend who tried it & swears by it. I was sure that her hair would grow back dark + course, but thatโ€™s not the case at all. Seeing how fantastic her skin looked, I was intrigued enough to try it myself. Gotta say, itโ€™s pretty freaking fabulous! I love not having โ€œpeach fuzzโ€ on my cheeks + neck, and extra bonus, my skin is smoother and more clear.๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ
.
The reason most women are all over this trend is because it not only removes that annoying โ€œpeach fuzzโ€ from your face, but it also allows makeup to go on smoother, removes all those dead skin cells that are clogging your pores, and gives you a kick ass glow for days (or for some, weeks).
.
Going to a spa is an option, but itโ€™s actually pretty easy to do yourself & a fraction of the cost. All youโ€™re doing is gently removing the fine top layer of skin by softly running the razor over your face. You want to avoid your under eye area & near your hairline, but otherwise anywhere that has light hair on your face + neck is fair game. Your hair will not grow back dark, thick, or course. It will grow back in the same as it looks now.
.
Here are some tips for doing this at home....
.
โœจPrep your skin. Gently cleanse your face + neck (donโ€™t use a harsh scrub) before dermaplaning so youโ€™re able to exfoliate the skin better with the razor.
โœจBegin shaving. Hold your skin taut while making short, feathery strokes with the blade at a 45-degree angle. Donโ€™t apply a lot of pressure. Short whispy strokes will do. Wipe the fuzz from the blade occasionally to clear it. Avoid getting to close to your eyebrows, eye area, + lips.
โœจPost shave. This step is super important. After you finish, splash your face + neck with water, gently blot dry, and moisturize. I personally use two drops of jojoba oil + 2 drops of carrot seed oil & lightly massage into my skin. Carrot seed oil has incredible rejuvenating benefits to the skin + supports healing so I swear by it.

Truth. If you want something badly enough, youโ€™ll stop making excuses and start taking action. โ€ข
Instead of say, โ€œI donโ€™t have time/canโ€™t afford it,โ€ try saying โ€œitโ€™s not important to me,โ€ and see how that feels.

#fbf I wore this outfit out last week. I thought I would prob look too dressed up for where we were going but I wore it anyway. My feeling, you want to be fabulous, be fabulous!! Who care what anyone else says?

Wear what makes you happy. Do what makes you feel good. Hang out with people who lift you up and make you laugh. Fabulosity is a state of mind and I am unleashing mine in full force!! Who wants to join me???๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ƒ.

Please note that you can still be fabulous with your toddlers potty seat hanging on the wall!!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ #keepingitreal #momlifebelike #fridayvibes

Who wore it better? Low self-esteem mom dresses her twin three year old daughters in very similar outfit to her own...but gives them horizontal stripes....cos she knows she'll look skinnier and better by comparison...#lowselfesteem #badday #whoworeitbetter #fortyandfabulous #topshop #benefitcosmetics #loreal #psychotherapy #narcissist #badmoms #drphil #jail
