Some of Hollywood's most beautiful are fans of dermaplaning, which is a form of deep skin exfoliation and resurfacing using a scalpel blade (fancy shaving)- the blade removes the top layers of skin which reveals the healthy skin underneath, and gets rid of fine vellus (those fuzzy small hairs on your face, to you and I).
asked Harley Street based doctor David Jack about the treament, which he revealed takes around 30 minutes. So, can you just shave your own face? Jack stated that "Face razors will exfoliate, but the angle and pressure required to properly demaplane is much more precise.
In Japan, women shave their faces as part of their regular skin routines, and it is apparently as common as tweezing your eyebrows.
Shaving your face can clear away old skin cells, prepare the skin for proudct application, brighten and clear your complexion and makes your foundation look smooth. All in all, sounds like a dream, right? Especially since, unlike men who shave daily, women are recommended to do it every two weeks.
Beauty vloggers, like Carli Bybel are fans, and even Cate Blanchett who told Byrdie last year "Look at men in their 40s and then look at women in their 40s- for me, their skin looks really good because they shave every day". Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, both of whom were praised for their complextions shaved, sign us up...
