Shaving Face

Women shave their legs, under arms, top lip and even their hoo-ha, so why don't we shave our faces? And, for those of us who do, why are we so f**king secretive?! There are so many benefits to picking up the razor, so let's stop saving face about shaving face....

Japanese women have been shaving their faces for years and even Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor were known to ride with the razor. Shaving your face will exfoliate your skin, ease makeup application and enable your products to deeper penetrate your skin. Aside from that, the peachy fuzz that covers your face clogs pores, causes breakouts and makes our complexion lackluster, so why the hell wouldn't you want it gone?!

For those facial shaving virgins reading, don't shy away from shaving because of the BS beauty myth that hair grows back darker and thicker - this is complete garbáge. Shaving can cause ingrowing hairs and a shaving rash if you're not careful. However the only big downside to shaving is that you can't avoid stubble - it will happen to even the best bitch. However peachy fuzz regrowth is barely noticeable and all you need to do it shave it the second you see it!

Luckily shaving your face is just like shaving your legs. You just need to wet your face, apply a good shaving gel and make sure you shave in the direction of hair growth. You should also finish with a good hydrating moisturiser. Razor-wise, an everyday razor will do the trick, however my favourite method is a dry shave using a single-edge, single-blade razor. 

I'm obsessed with single-blade razors. They give more precision and make facial hair removal that much quicker. My favourite is the No Mo-Stache Facial Razor (£6.50 It is a foldable stainless steel facial razor that is tres cute and very easy to use.
