YES, SHAVING MY FACE.
Did I catch your attention?
Can we talk about shaving our faces for 5 seconds? K good thanks.
I totally got the idea from Michelle Money. She’s a beauty guru and shaves her face. Then, my fave lifestyle blogger Lauryn Evarts shaved HER face. CLEARLY I WAS INTRIGUED. SO then I did.
I shaved my face.
Still gasping? Okay have you heard of dermaplaning? That skin scraping facial people pay like $200+ for? It’s basically paying someone to shave your face for you. How bougie. But seriously you can’t exfoliate with a razor WITHOUT shaving the peach fuzz off. MIND BLOWN RIGHT? Dermaplaning shaves your face.
Maybe it’s a bit more intense BUT, you can actually get similar results at home. By yourself. Trust me, cause I do it. All. the. time.
My skin looks uhhhhmazing AND my makeup applies to much smoother. It’s ridding of small small hairs AND exfoliating dead skin cells which is SO good during those dry, cold months.
Now some of you have probably started to type a letter telling me that doing this will cause facial hair to grow back thicker and all these other awful facial hair facts. Put down the pen. It won’t happen.
It’s that easy. It will NOT HAPPEN. I am a prime example of this but if we wanna get scientific about it, here we go.
Men have course facial hair. Women have vellus. Vellus is thin, peach fuzz. We do not have the hormone levels to actually GROW that course facial hair our lovely gentlemen have. Shaving our vellus will NOT cause it to get thicker. A follicle starts growing at the ROOT. This will not change based on what you do to the hair above skin surface.
If you’re panicking, think of dermaplaning. Here is a video of Michelle Money shaving her:
I swear I can’t be the only one who used to look at other girls like ‘how on EARTH is their skin so flawless? Their makeup looks airbrushed on.’
Well they probably shaved it off.
Except I’m here to tell you about it.
You guys know I’ll try anything and tell you. HELLO sharing my secrets with you is prettttty much the tagline of this blog and I live up to it.
REAL. LIFE. SHIT.
KEEP THINKING DERMAPLANING. Don’t freak.
They are so cute right?
You can pick them up on Amazon for dirt cheap. Get yourself a pack and let me know how it goes. Or do like me, order one, let it sit in your makeup drawer for months until you finally give in and test out a small patch of vellus in an inconspicuous area near your jawline. JUST incase it grows back and you look like Wolverine.

I’m a drama queen I know.
