Women are taking up a practice usually only done by men; they’re shaving their faces and talking about it. The process is called dermaplaning and it’s a popular topic on TikTok, with the hashtag #dermaplaning getting over 1.8 billion views so far.
If you’re interested in having your peach fuzz shaved off, here are some of the benefits of the process.
- It can brighten your skin
- It can fade dark spots
- It softens fine lines and wrinkles
There are some risks to the process, especially for anyone with a skin condition like skin cancer, eczema, severe acne, rosacea, or sensitive skin, and dermatologists say dermaplaning isn’t worth the risks for those people.
One thing that many people think is a risk doesn’t actually happen according to skincare experts. You’ve probably heard that shaving will make the hairs grow back thicker, darker, and faster. Dermatologists say your hair growth and thickness is “genetically preprogrammed,” and can’t be changed by shaving it off. As always, it’s recommended to check with a professional before trying to shave your face.
