Latest Beauty Trend: Women Shave Facial Hair Screen goddess Marilyn Monroe did it, and Dame Elizabeth Taylor did it: ditched the wax in favor of a razor to eliminate unwanted facial hair. Beauticians are now witnessing a boost in popularity of the beauty trick that is meant to make women picture perfect. As the Daily Mail puts it, now that high definition cameras can spot even the smallest imperfection that is perhaps not even visible to the naked eye, female stars can’t afford to have fuzz on their face. So, more and more women are turning to the ever-reliable razor for a smooth skin for a red carpet appearance, shaving before heading out. This way, they’re certain to look their best when the cameras start snapping. “Shaving rids the face of that fine fuzz that laser hair removal can’t pick up,” Kate Somerville, a facialist to the stars (she doesn’t say who these are), explains for the British publication.

Or those weird chin hairs that magically appear one day with no warning. We all know about waxing, tweezing, bleaching and depilatories. And now in addition to electrolysis we have lasers that are very effective for removing unwanted hair not only on the face but other areas of the body as well. Now, what would you think if I told you that dermatologists and estheticians have been recommending shaving as a real alternative to the methods of hair removal for the face?

Eight Products You Think You Need—But Don't - Lifestyle Here's a secret the $50 billion cosmetics industry doesn't want you to know: You don't need almost any of what they're peddling. Truth is, that our bodies are smart, and long before the advent of $200 eye creams—or even basic shaving cream—we were all doing just fine. Of course, some of the products we use have appeal beyond their utility: They smell good, they feel good, they make us look good. Others—and especially some of the ones sold to us as things we need—are nothing more than marketing ploys that create more problems than they solve. Don't buy it? But when it comes to personal care, less really is more—and that goes for the bare necessities as well. Lip Balm We all know someone addicted to their ChapStick, and there's a real simple reason for that: Many lip salves contain alcohol, which can dry the hell out of your lips. Foot Cream The skin on our feet may feel thicker than the skin on our forearms, but that doesn't mean it needs its own product category.

How to Make Your Own Beauty Products from Scratch - Lifestyle Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see "Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't" for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own. Simple body scrub Many body scrubs, even the ones that claim to be sugar- or salt-based, actually contain beads made out of polyethylene, which is environmentally deplorable (it all goes down the drain, remember)—to say nothing of the preservatives, fragrance, penetration enhancers, and sulfates that typically bulk up these products. Honey face wash One-ingredient eye liner For the ladies (or the gents with a flair for the dramatic) this is as easy as it gets: Grab a capsule of activated charcoal, which you can get at most pharmacies and any health food store.

WOMEN X-METHOD SHAVING « Shave Doctor Chronicles Although I had been teaching men how to use the X-method shaving technique to retrain whiskers and heal any skincare challenge, like most of my industry, I hadn’t given any thought to the women who used shaving as a way to maintain facial hair. To help me better understand the pros and cons of a woman shaving her face as a form of hair removal, I decided to shave one side of my face for two years to see how the hair would grow back, how quickly and what the overall effect might be. Very soon into my science experiment, I began to notice some pretty big changes. Although I only shaved once a week, within a couple of weeks I noticed that the pores on my upper cheek and nose had started to shrink, the wrinkles on my forehead lightened and hyper pigmentation around my temple had almost disappeared. Make sure it has a good coating of shave lather over it.Shave from the top of the nose to the end. Post-Shave Procedure Like this: Like Loading...
