Dermaplaning and Facial Hair


So, I took this picture earlier today, with every intention of showing off how rockin our lip liners and lip stain are. And then I saw it.

Hair. On. My. Face.

I mean, I knew it was there. But seriously, I did not realize how much little bitty peach fuzz there was! I was mortified. I wasn’t going to share it, I was going to act like I had never taken a close up pic of my lips. But, I promised you a few days ago, that I would start showing a bit more of “me”. Little did I know, that I would be sharing my facial hair with the world.

Now, please understand, that no one else in this world, probably even notices this about me. However, since I took this blasted picture, it’s all I can think about. I can’t walk within ten feet of a mirror without looking at it. Yes, really.

This leads me into a discussion, that I hadn’t planned on writing about just yet. Dermaplaning your face. But, let’s get serious here. Dermaplaning is nothing more than a fancy word for shaving your face. Yep, it’s a thing. I’ll wait while you go Google it.

Back now? Ok. Now you know I’m not trying to pull something over on you. I had actually been considering doing it, as it’s supposed to make your skin look totally amazing. Not just for removing hair, but for exfoliation. It’s been touted for helping with wrinkles, dark spots, and more.

I had it laid out in my head, on how I was going to write about it. I even had a picture in my mind, of the image I would set up for it. Me, with a face full of the hubby’s shaving cream, holding a razor, with a perplexed look on my face. You know, all like, “Am I really thinking about doing this?!?” Then, I took that picture up there. Out the window, is where all my cute ideas went.

That picture led to searching the bowels of the internet. Where I made some shocking discoveries. First, do you know how much you will pay for “Dermaplaning”??? $65 to $75 per *treatment*. Like seriously, you can do it in your bathroom, with a cheap, single blade razor, for literally pennies. You just use small, short, downward strokes, and lightly shave. (I told you I went digging.)

The second discovery? There is a reason that makeup models look flawless and smooth. It’s because they remove their facial hair. Really. This is part of their big secret. Shaving. Then again, I bet they don’t get fuzzy lip pics, like I did, so who am I to judge?

I seriously think I’m going to give it a shot. When I do, I will take the obligatory before and after pics. Heck, let’s be honest, I will most likely post during shots, too.

What do you think about this trend? Would you do it? I want to hear your thoughts!
