Wait — Is Shaving Your Face the Next Big Beauty Trend?
Take one look at our closets and you’ll see that we’ve borrowed more than a few trends from the boys. From wingtip shoes to menswear-inspired coats, we proudly rock these trends as our own. We don’t normally think of extending this to our beauty routines, but the latest beauty trend to hit the interwebs is about to change all that. More and more women are proudly announcing to the world (and to YouTube) that they shave their faces.
TOP PRODUCT PICKS
1. World Market Spa Terrycloth Headband ($6): First things first — let’s keep the hair we want to hang on to protected by pulling it up and away from the face. Secure your strands in a soft terry cloth headband and make sure it’s nice and snug.
2. Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser ($7): Wash your face with a super gentle cleanser that won’t irritate your skin. We love Cetaphil because it’s one of those rare cleansers that never breaks us out, not to mention it’s easy on the wallet too. When it comes to shaving your face, you want to stick with a basic cleanser without all the bells and whistles of expensive, highly perfumed products.
3. Tinkle Eyebrow Shaper ($5, pack of three): The blades on these little wonders are the perfect size for your new favorite beauty routine. Look for blades that are not too big, not too small and not too tapered. They allow you to make precise strokes, especially around tricky areas like near your hairline.
4. NEOGEN Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon ($27): After you’re finished shaving, we suggest going in with some heavy-duty treatments or serums. Freshly shaved skin is also freshly exfoliated skin (AKA the perfect canvas for soaking up all those good ingredients). We love this peel for its zing of vitamin C that can brighten skin in just seconds.
So? Are you ready to start shaving your face?
