Famous beauties, including Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor, are well reported to have shaved their faces as part of a daily routine. Highlighting its effect, internet users insist it evens out their skin and, in turn, makes it appear flawless.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Dr. Ross said: “Having fine hair on the face is normal, and we shouldn’t feel pressured into shaving the face purely because someone else is doing it. As we have seen with other TikTok trends, we must not start copying TikTok users’ hacks; we must always follow professional advice.”

“I do not recommend shaving your face at home. It can grow back worse, and what might have been considered mild facial hair can then grow back thicker. Shaving your face can cause acne breakouts or skin reactions.” Dr. Ross explained the dermaplaning that eliminates the top layers of skin should always be done by a professional.

He added: “Dermaplaning is a tried and tested method of removing unwanted hair from the face. It is a painless way of scraping away facial hair whilst at the same time gets rid of any dead skin cells which contribute to making the skin look uneven.” However, Dr. Ross claims people suffering from skin conditions, including acne or eczema, could find shaving their face worsens inflammation, pigmentation and sensitivity.

Emphasizing what’s said by Dr. Ross, Skin Specialist at Blush and Blow London, Abbi Ingram continued: “Women want to feel refreshed after lockdown, and things such as derma planning remove not only the hair but also dead cells meaning the skin feels smoother and looks brighter. However, shaving the facial hair, like any shaving, will stimulate the hair growth.”

“The reason most women turn to dermaplaning is to create a smooth canvas for a flawless makeup application.”

Also, Amy Anzel, a Dermaplaning expert and founder of Hollywood Browzer Beauty, stated: “The reason most women turn to dermaplaning is to create a smooth canvas for a flawless makeup application. It isn’t about not having hair on their face. A flawless makeup application is the by-product of dermaplaning as is better penetration of skincare and glowing, radiant skin.”
