For the last year now, I’ve really gotten into shaving my face. If you’re a girl and you’ve never heard of this before, you’re probably thinking, huh? Okay, just hear me out. It’s become one of my favourite things to do about once a month and today I want to share a few main reason why it’s so great.
Here are 3 reasons why you need to start shaving your face. Let’s get into it!
- It’s great for removing hair and peach fuzz
I used to go get threading for my eyebrows before the pandemic, but once I learned about shaving your face with a face razor I haven’t gone back once! Another reason for this is also because I learned how to do my brows my own way, without needing threading or to spend money. I love using the face razor particularly to get rid of the hairs between my eye brows, and shape the tops of my eyebrows. SO GOOD. Then, I go in with some tweezers and pluck the arch and then trim the hairs with little mini scissors. But this isn’t a brow tutorial haha.
I highly recommend using a face razor for your upper lip too. It’s so easy because you can whip out your little face razor whenever you want to touch it up and get it looking smoother. Plus, again it saves you a trip to get waxing or threading done. Super effective, time efficient, easy, and it looks great. What more could you ask for?
Most importantly, our skin has peach fuzz all over it and we don’t even know it! I think it also might play a part in clogging our pores or exfoliation, but I’m not entirely sure. All I know is that using a face razor to shave the peach fuzz off of your skin is GAME CHANGING. Your skin will never be smoother. PSA: if you do want to try using a face razor, make sure to glide the razor across your skin at an angle. You need to be very gentle and you don’t want to further irritate your skin. Don’t forget this point!
2. It leaves your skin feeling (and looking) incredible
As you may be able to imagine, using a face razor to take off the hair and peach fuzz off your face makes your skin SO smooth. Smoother than ever. It also exfoliates your skin in a way, and removes dead skin along with peach fuzz. So when you go to apply your skincare afterwards, it just feels like your skin is absorbing the products 10x more. Also if you’re putting on makeup for the day! Your makeup goes on sooo seamlessly and it makes your skin look so smooth with makeup on. I love it.
Not only does it make your skin and makeup look flawless, but it just feels like you’re giving your skin a refresh. I like doing this once a month or so to give my skin a clean slate.
3. You can do it at home and on your own whenever you want!
Face razors > Getting waxing or threading
You can use it to touch up your brows or shave your upper lip whenever you want to. I love how easy it is, and how it doesn’t irritate your skin. It’s efficient and it’s a lot cheaper than getting your face hair or peach fuzz removed somewhere else! My favourite face razor is from Sephora and it’s I love it because it’s reusable and has razors that you can interchange. Another good one (that I personally haven’t tried yet) is the Skinny Confidential hot shave razor – also a reusable one so we love. Reusable face razors are usually only around $20, so they’re super affordable and WORTH IT!
I hope you enjoyed reading through my post about face razors and why you need to start shaving your face with one! Maybe I convinced you to get one if you don’t have one yet 😉
