Don’t worry if you are also one of those girls who get late and shave their faces instead of waxing. Many myths revolve around shaving your facial hair, but what is the truth? Here are the three biggest myths of shaving your facial hair that we are going to debunk.
1. Shaving causes your hair to grow back thicker
This is the most common misconception that women have about shaving their facial hair. Each hair is thicker at the shaft and then gradually tapered and thin towards the end. When the hair gets shaved, it cuts down at the shaft, and therefore while growing back, it just appears to be thicker. A razor cannot change the thickness or growth rate of the hair.
2. Shaving makes the skin rough
As mentioned at the first point, when the hair grows back after shaving, it’s not tapered; that’s why giving it a rough feel. But in actuality, shaving exfoliates your skin by removing dead skin cells along with the hair, leaving your skin feeling soft, supple, and smooth.
3. Shaving is not The Same As Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is a superficial process that removes dead skin cells along with unwanted peach fuzz. So it’s more than just shaving your skin. A licensed beautician can only perform it because the blade they use is much sharper. It leaves you with a clear and brighter complexion.
So the next time you go to a party, and you are late, use a razor to shave any body part, including your sensitive face, guilt-free.
