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 regimen.
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.
Tool: Swann Morton #10R
For those performing cosmetic and dermaplaning procedures – Swann-Morton’s famous #10R blade, better known as the “butter blade” is now available as a disposable scalpel. The blade is permanently attached to a blue polystyrene handle, eliminating the need to attach and remove the blade from a handle. The #10R blade is ideal for contouring the nose, mouth, and brows. The rounded (bull nose) tip prevents any accidental snagging or scratching thus providing a more effective and consistent finish. Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of the skin or on the entire face.

Self Tanner Application Tips
Interestingly enough the secret to a fully covered tan is latex gloves. Latex gloves do not absorb any product, so you literally get the perfect amount of product to color section by section. When using a mitt half of the product is absorbed through that mitt.
However, don’t get rid of your mitts, they always come in handy for tanning your back. Wrap your mitt around a long loofa body brush and ta-da, your back is done!
