Hey guys, it’s Hannah! Today I want to talk to you guys all about ‘Dermaplaning.’ What’s dermaplaning, you might ask? Glad you did. Essentially, it’s a fancy term for shaving the peach fuzz off your entire face. I know it sounds crazy because trust me I thought it was insane the first time I heard about it. You know that amazing feeling when you shave your legs and put on tons of lotion and you’re all soft and moisturized and you get into bed and it feels like pure bliss? Well, it’s like that but for your face! Over the last few weeks, I’ve tried four different dermaplaning tools from across all price points! Dermaplaning is usually performed by an aesthetician, but now there are so many amazing at-home options! Of course, getting it done by a pro means they use a very sharp (very scary) surgical blade, but there are so many great approachable blades created specifically for at-home. It’s also important to note that, much like a facial or a manicure- getting it done by a pro will be slightly different. So, like I said above, dermaplaning is great for removing the peach fuzz from your face, which in turn makes your face feels super soft! The biggest comment and concern I would get when I told my friends that this was my next contributing post was, “Won’t the hair grow back thicker?” While you might think that, it’s actually just giving the hair a blunt tip as opposed to how it would grow out normally. Beyond making your skin super soft, it also is a great exfoliator, removes dead skin cells, helps the appearance of acne scars and helps promote collagen production and cell turnover (AKA- anti-aging)! It also helps all of your skincare soak into your skin just that much better. ALSO- please note that you should NOT use shaving cream! I did it just for the photos
