Despite most of us being confined to our homes at the moment, many beauty treatments are still getting carried out, including the much-loved skincare treatment dermaplaning. Designed to remove facial peach fuzz and eliminate dead skin cells, dermaplaning is a skincare treatment typically carried out in beauty salons or dermatologists. It is carried out with a sharp scalpel and requires a professional. However, with the creation of safer, at-home blades, many people are turning to a DIY dermaplane to achieve smoother, softer skin!
What You Will Need
- A DIY dermaplaning tool such as Flawless DermaPlane Facial Exfoliator and Hair Remover
- A piece of tissue or a cotton pad
- Rubbing alcohol
How to Dermaplane Your Face
- Always use a clean blade, this is super important to prevent any infection or bacteria spreading across your face. Your blades can typically be used 2-3 times each, but you should always clean them after each use with rubbing alcohol.
- Always start with clean, fresh skin.
- Hold your skin taut and the blade at a 45-degree angle and gently begin to stroke downwards, focusing on a small area of the face at a time.
- You can use the blade to shape and tidy up your eyebrows, carefully stroking around them.
- Every so often, wipe the edge on a cotton pad to remove the peach fuzz and dead skin that has been collected.
- Continue to dermaplane across your face until you feel all areas have been covered, and your skin is fuzz-free!
- Once you’re finished dermaplaning, apply your personal choice of serum or moisturizer. Your skin should soak this up, and you should be left with a visible, dewy glow!
- Repeat dermaplaning as often as you feel is necessary, everyone is different. Some people find that once a month is enough for their skin, while others prefer to do a quick touch up before every makeup application.
