Shaving Your Facial Hair: Do Or Don't?

Should you?

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.
