Women Who Shave Their Face Claim To Have A Softer, Clearer Complexion

June 12, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

Most women admit to threading or waxing facial hair…but shaving? Believe it or not, tons of women are taking a razor to their face and removing facial hair at-home. Celebrity facialist, Kate Somerville, reluctantly admits to shaving her face once a week. “Initially I did it because of the hair, but then I noticed that it was a great exfoliant and that my makeup went on a lot better,” Somerville revealed to The New York Times. In case you were wondering, she uses the men’s razor, Gillete Mach3.

According to the NYT, “three out of four American women ages 18 to 34 have had facial hair removed or done it themselves in the last year.” And don’t worry about it growing in darker or thicker. “It is definitely a myth that shaving will make the hair coarser or darker,” says Elizabeth K. Hale, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at the NYU Langone Medical Center.

At-home shaving is almost like dermaplaning, except not as intense. What is dermaplaning? Facialists, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons use a scalpel-like tool to shave the face. It sounds a little scary, I know. In fact, dermaplaning has great benefits for your skin. In addition to removing facial hair, it also greatly exfoliates your skin due to the removal of “dead skin cells, pollution and imperfections” according to Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, a plastic surgeon in Manhattan.

Many women enlist the help of a little (and efficient) product, called Tinkle. It’s actually an eyebrow razor but it does the trick for removing all facial hair. Tinkle is a single-blade disposable razor and is super cheap ($5 for a 3-pack).

For a tutorial on how exactly to go about shaving your face, watch the video below.
