Shaving the peach fuzz on your face appears to be the latest trend among beauty influencers with many claiming that it improves makeup application and makes you look younger.
How exactly do you shave your face correctly and what are the pros and cons of it? Here's what I found out:
How to shave your face?
Skincare experts say the best way to shave your face is to get it done by a professional dermatologist who knows what they're doing.
This will reduce the risk of skin irritation that could be caused by doing it incorrectly at home. However, not everyone can afford this so there are methods to shave your face successfully yourself too.
Firstly, you want to make sure the face is completely clean - you should use a gentle cleanser beforehand.
As for what razor to use it's best to use a razor specifically designed for the face to avoid cuts.
You can use the manual razor dry but to avoid cuts it's best to use sensitive shaving foam. You should shave in the direction that the hairs grow just like how you shave your legs.
After shaving, you should wait around an hour before applying moisturiser.
It's important that the moisture is designed for sensitive skin as this will help prevent irritation.
Pros and Cons
Shaving the face will improve makeup application, face makeup will go on smoother and apparently last longer.
Once you start shaving the face you have committed to keeping up the maintenance of it. You should make sure you actually have the time to shave the face regularly before beginning.
The skin is smoother and more radiant directly after shaving. Experts say that this is why it's good to shave the face before events.
Shaving wrong or applying product too soon after shaving can cause irritation.
Shaving the face is a great method of exfoliation which will help skincare products absorb into the skin more deeply.
