Whether you are looking to ward off wrinkles or get rid of facial hair, women shaving their faces is a real thing. Some women go to their dermatologist or esthetician to get their face dermaplanned, or you can just DIY.
One reason men seem to get fewer wrinkles is the fact that they shave almost daily. The shaving process exfoliates the skin, and encourages new layers of skin growth.
My daughter asked me the other day if I had ever heard about women shaving their faces. I told her I had been using a razor on my face for 10 years. When you think about it, women shave everything but their face or they have it waxed. I have found shaving my face to be a great beauty secret.
And the questions start......
Do you get more hair growth or coarse hair if you shave?
What direction should the razor go in?
Will you have a 5:00 shadow?
When is the best time to shave your face?
In a nutshell here is my personal experience with face shaving. If you are in your 50's or 60's, you have probably experienced facial hair due to your imbalance of hormones. As you age your body will slowly stop producing hormones, (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.) Hormone imbalance results in a lot of things, and facial hair is one of them.
I personally have not had any adverse effects from shaving my face. No shadow, or extra hair growth or coarse hair regrowth.
I use the same razor that I shave my legs with. A Gilette fusion. I have never nicked or cut my face. It takes less than one minute to go over my face with a razor.
I usually shave my face every other day in the shower. I use the Pink Himalayan salt exfoliator, rinse, and then shave. The salt exfoliator leaves a small amount of oil on my face, enough, that a razor just glides over it. I shave my neck too. I put some Dr. Bronners liquid soap on my neck and shave in an upward motion. Or you could use shaving cream instead.
I use the upward motion for my face too. It is a very simple way to get rid of any peach fuzz on the side of your face too. It's not rocket science. If you can shave your legs properly, you can shave your face.
So now you know another one of my beauty secrets! Shaving my face gets rid of unwanted facial hair, exfoliates my skin and leaves it very smooth.
Feel free to DM me with any questions you might have, especially if this a new concept for you.
Until next time, xoxo
