Women Shaving Face

3 Tips Women Need To Know Before Shaving Her Face

Here are the three things you need to know before shaving your face:
1. It won’t grow back darker and thicker. “Shaving has absolutely no effect on the rate of regrowth, the color, or the thickness of the hair. Although it may feel a little stubble, the hair is not actually thicker at all,” explains Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, dermatologist, and co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, DC.
2. Try a men’s razor. A man’s razor is extremely sharp and more long-lasting. It also decreases your chances of causing irritation and ingrown hairs. Make sure you shave in the same direction as hair growth and go slowly and thoroughly.
3. Never use the same razor you use on your legs. “If you use the same razor you use on your body, you put yourself at risk of nicks and cuts, which can cause inflammation and irritation and can lead to scarring and ingrown hairs,” suggests Cecilia Wong, facialist and founder of Cecilia Wong Skincare.
