What is Dermaplaning?
Well, Dermaplaning is just a fancy term for shaving your face and it is easily done at home. It is a highly effective way to exfoliate your skin and get rid of peach fuzz, which can trap dirt, oil, and your foundation, and make you look older. It also helps your skincare products to penetrate that dead skin layer. Shaving is one of the most effective ways to help your skin look flawless and make you look more youthful. Thus, making it one of the most efficient ways to stay on top of your regimine.
How to Dermaplane?
Firstly, you need a good tool and also to prep your skin before you begin. Wash your face with a good enzyme wash to take off all that dead skin. Use an alcohol wipe to get those vellus hairs to stand upright. Shave, hold your skin taut and the razor at an angle, and use gentle, short strokes in a downward motion. After, use another light gentle enzyme exfoliant to rid the dead skin cells you have now shaved from your face. Lastly, put moisture back into your soft supple skin and SPF if you do this during day hours.
