Why I Shave My Face
Yes, I shave my face. AHHHH, there, I said it! Don’t freak out because it’s not what your thinking, it’s not an actual razor & shaving cream. Did you know that women, like Marilyn Monroe, started this trend in the 60’s? These women shaved their faces not just to get rid of hair but also to exfoliate! I have to say ever since I started shaving my makeup has never gone on smoother and my skin feels vibrant. Not only am I exfoliating my face at the same time of getting rid of that hair fuzz, but this process doesn’t leave my face red & bumpy like waxing does. Even if you have gone through the process of permanent laser hair removal, I still recommend you shave once every two weeks to get rid of dead skin cells..
In a world full of trends, I want to stay classic.
Now to the most important part: HOW to shave? I use a contraption called straight razors, specifically the Tinkle brand (the ones from the drug store don’t work as well). I’ve linked the exact ones I use below. Start off with a clean & dry face, take the razor and do downward strokes as you have your skin pulled up so it’s nice and tight. I take the razor all over including my forehead, you’ll immediately see all the dead skin cell coming off and OMG, your face will feel smooth as a babies bottom!.
