To Shave or not to Shave

I was always skeptical to shave my face, because, well, my mom always told me ‘once you shave the hair always grows back thicker.’ Blah, bore, old school thought!

After doing a lot of research and getting tired with the peach fuzz on my face, I gave in and tried it.

Let me tell you, it is a game changer! I have been doing it for just over a year now, I started just be for the wedding and I will never, ever stop!

First things first, there are a few rules to it. Do not shave your face with a normal shaver. Us women have very fine baby hairs on our faces, these need delicate shavers.

This is what they look like.

Only go around your jawline and upper lip, don’t ever go above the nose. I have never tried it but I have heard horror stories. So I stay below the nose and am particularly careful around my ears/hair line.

The benefits?

Getting rid of those tiny hairs seriously makes your foundation go on like a dream! Any time I have an event or something coming up, I shave before hand and my makeup goes on flawless.

Shaving also helps exfoliate your skin and gives it a baby like appearance.

Lastly, don’t shave too often, I do it about once a month to avoid making my skin too dry and to let it grow in well enough (they grow so slowly).

Have you tried it?

  1. If you think about it, it’s also strange how strands of fully grown hair with a limited length can grow back soon after being shaved. They get back to their old length, which if our body allowed them to grow before we shaved, they’d be twice as long :D. That’s why it doesn’t make sense to say they grow back longer, it just seem thicker because the hair is forced to grow back from what used to be it’s base, which will become its new tip.
