Have you started dermaplaning yet?
As with many types of trends, revolutionary beauty treatments and ingredients are often met with significant backlash before they become part of the mainstream. Take Botox for example… 15 years ago, injecting botulinum toxin into your face was almost unthinkable—and now going without it is just crazy talk.
A more recent example would be dermaplaning, which was immediately represented as shaving your face when it came onto the scene. Yes, this exfoliation technique does involve a razor blade that removes facial hair—but it also removes the uppermost layers of skin, in turn improving the skin’s look and feel and helping your skincare products penetrate better. As with many other beauty treatments, dermaplaning originated as an office-based treatment performed by a trained professional, but now there are a bevy of ways to reap the benefits at home.
I first tried DIY dermaplaning with a vibrating device, but I’ll admit it took me about three or four tries to realize that I wasn’t devoting enough time to the process. Now I’ll spend upwards of a half-hour, sitting on my vanity in front of the mirror in broad daylight to ensure I get every square inch of my face. I also learned that your choice of tool does make a difference, and I’m here to tell you NOT to waste your money on the Tinkle even though they’re less than $1 each on Amazon (sometimes you DO get what you pay for).
If you’re thinking about trying dermaplaning for yourself (or you’re already a fan) do it the right way with Stacked Skincare’s Dermaplaning Tool. This professional-grade, non-vibrating tool (we’re not calling it a razor) safely removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz and delivers results you can see and feel instantly. Obviously this isn’t something you want to do on a daily or even weekly basis, but 10 minutes or so twice a month should keep your skin smooth, soft and luminous.
