Have you heard about the new trend that’s dividing the beauty world and women alike? To shave or not to shave the face. Of course, this is nothing new; some women have been happily shaving away their ‘peach fuzz’ for years now, yet it has never been so widely discussed. Everyone grew up with the myth that shaving makes your hair grow back thicker and darker, but thankfully this has been quashed and beauty mavens like Huda Kattan and Chloe Morello are taking full advantage.
If, like us, you are still undecided on where you stand with this trend, take a look at the claimed pros and cons:
- Improves appearance of scars
- Helps exfoliate
- Anti-aging benefits
- Make up sits better and applies smoother
- Major upkeep required
- Need to guard against ingrown hairs and stubble
- Watch out for red bumps and irritation
- Could aggravate any existing skin problems (eczema, acne, cold sores etc.)
If you fancy giving it a try, set yourself up with a Tinkle razor (traditional razors are too harsh) and a Konjac Facial Sponge suited to your skin type to prevent any complexion troubles. 100% pure Konjac has the perfect soft, net-like structure to give an intense exfoliation without causing any irritation.
Many skin experts who support this movement recommend regular exfoliation of the newly revealed skin to reduce ingrown hairs and redness. There is nothing worse than stubble rash to ruin the smooth application of your make up.
If we're honest, we're still on the fence with this trend but it certainly got the office talking! What do you guys think?
