Privet 🙂 ! Well I often tell my mom all of my beauty secrets, currently I’m trying to get her to use some purple shampoo on her hair to help combat brassiness from the combination of hair dye and sunshine. So when I told her of my latest beauty experiment she started to yell at me. She told me I would regret my decision of facial shaving and that I would grow into an old women with a hairy face, and that my barely there facial baby hairs would become“thick and dark”. Well, I’ve done my own DIY a total of three times in the last 2 months, and my baby hairs have not become thick, or darker as a result of my new beauty quest. So you may now be wondering why I’ve decided to try out this new trend- that might make people come up to you just to say “Ты сегодня выглядишь как огурчик/ you look fresh like a cucumber” as a result 😉 (and yes that is a real Russian compliment if you were wondering!)
“It’s summertime, and direct sunlight in my opinion is a pretty harsh light that can expose flaws that are not often seen in other types of light. What I hate is that when ones face has peach fuzz, or baby hairs makeup can cling to the hairs and make them look more noticeable in the sunlight, and that is unappealing/ aggravating to me. Second, face shaving is said to have many benefits, why not? Men do it all the time, (seriously though my boyfriend has the smoothest face in all of the lands when he shaves- and his complexion is pretty damn perfect- so he’s on to something there!) As for the benefits, if you were to go to a spa, and order a chemical peel an aesthetician would probably prep your face with a procedure known as dermaplaning.

And Dermaplaning is just a fancy term for face shaving! The intended use of dermaplaning is to remove the skins surface layer of grime, and dead skin cells that have built up, and often leave your pores clogged. So it’s really another method of exfoliation, which leaves me all the more intrigued if it can remove dead skin cells and keep my pores and face looking as fresh as that cucumber.
Other benefits of this method include allowing ones makeup to sit on the skin more smoothly, which means you’re no longer restricted to downward motion techniques when applying your foundation! It also allows for your moisturizer to absorb into your skin better, as well your most coveted beauty/ anti-aging serums, and by clearing your skin of that build up it will aid in anti-aging all on it’s own. And when you feel your face after, it’s abnormally silky after! Plus Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe were said to incorporate this into their own beauty routines. ! Anyways some girls do not use a full on razor, but an eyebrow razor instead like the tinkle razor (which btw I have never used the tinkle razor myself, but it looks cute in all those pastel colours!)
