Dermaplaning at Home
Have you heard of dermaplaning? Do you dermaplane? I first heard of it a year or so ago. It’s essentially shaving your face, which I know, sounds weird, but hear me out. I’ve never gotten my face professionally dermaplaned, but a lot of people do it at home. You use a small razor that is specifically made for this and it removes dead skin and little hairs from your face leaving your face nice and smooth.
People always rave about it so after a year of people talking online about how they dermaplane at home, I decided to try it myself. I got a 3-pack of Schick dermaplaning razors from Amazon for like $6 or something like that.
As you can see, the razor is small and not too scary looking. It’s really easy to do. First, wash your face, then take a razor and I like to pull my skin taut. Then angle the razor, about 45 degrees I’d say, and do small, gentle strokes downwards. The sound (as least for me) is sort of like dry skin scraping off. I clean off the razor with tissue every once in a while before continuing and usually I’ll see some dead skin flakes, and little peach fuzz/baby hairs that you probably didn’t even know you had.
I finish off with my nightly skincare products (face mist, eye cream, serum, moisturizer) afterwards.
It’s true, it makes your skin feel super smooth! I haven’t been able to dermaplane my whole face as I’ve been having little breakouts here and there and you obviously don’t want to shave over pimples. So I’ve been using the razor on the clear parts of my face for the past few weeks. You also don’t want to overdo it, so I’ve only been using it every other week.
So far so good!
