Shaving Your Facial Hair: Do Or Don't? | Clozette

Elizabeth Taylor gets her facial hair shaved professionally. The process is called dermaplaning. Some salons and spas offer this kind of service, but there are women who do it on their own.  It's a pretty polarising topic, but if you're interested to do it, here are some things you need to know first. 

For anti-ageing?


Exfoliation can do wonders for the face — just make sure you don't overdo it, of course. That said, shaving your facial hair can also exfoliate your skin. When you shave your facial hair, you also shave the dead skin cells off, allowing your skin to renew (a.k.a. not age). 


Better base


After you shave your facial hair, your face will become really smooth, making makeup foundation application a whole lot easier and smoother. 

Skincare absorption


Because the hair and the dead skin are gone, the skincare you put gets easily absorbed.

Thicker hair?


Most women think that if you shave your facial hair, it will grow back thicker and darker but they won't. If anything, the difference would be too slight that you won't even notice.


It needs to be maintained


If you start to shave your face and start to love it, you definitely have to maintain it. Hairs do grow back, after all, and the smooth feeling is not permanent.

It is a personal preference 

Keep in mind that shaving your facial hair is a personal preference. It is the same as shaving your legs and armpits, and it’s all up to you if you want to try it or not.

After the hassles of last minute Christmas shopping, you might be tempted to skip the wrapping part and just give the gifts how you purchased them. That's a very practical thing to do considering the environmental waste that you'll spare Mother Earth from. However, if you want to add a personal touch to your gift, consider doing one of these chic and eco-friendly gift-wrapping ideas. Don't worry, you don't need to be a craft expert to pull these off!


Wrap It In Reusable Cloth



We got this idea from Lush's holiday collection. This year, they presented these reusable cloth gift wraps as an alternative to traditional wrapping paper. You can also do this at home by cutting some old but decent cloth. After, just wrap your present with the cloth, then secure with a knot. Easy peasy!


Dress Up An Old Box



Remember when you were tasked to decorate an old shoebox so it can double as your hygiene kit in second grade? Well, you can still put those creative skills to work now that you're an adult by dressing up old boxes to wrap your presents. You can even customize them to match the personality of the recipient. 


Wrap It In Recycled Paper



Put those stacks of grocery brown paper wraps to good use. You can use yarns to secure the package. Now, this can look bland as it is, so don't forget to decorate with different elements. If you're particularly art-inclined then you can draw or do some simple calligraphy on it.


Put It In A Mason Jar



Whether your gifts are edible or not, mason jars are a whimsical and chic way to present your gifts. Decorate them with trinkets to make them more personal and visually appealing.




Use Sinamay Fabric



The sinamay fabric is popularly used in millinery and bouquet-making because of its sturdy structure and elegant 'raw' look. Needless to say, this material is also perfect for gift wrapping if you're looking for something that's more elegant-looking. Another plus point is that this will not go to waste after serving its purpose as a wrap because it can be repurposed as an ornamental mat.
