As a woman, I was surprised to learn that other women were shaving their faces. My first question was, why?
At first, I pictured women hiding shavers to remove their secret mustaches and beards. I imagined an entire history of deceit where women shaved their faces nightly in an attempt to keep the illusion alive.
Well, it’s not that extreme, but women have been hiding this one fact for years – Shaving is not just for hair removal.
These days, shaving your face not only removes unwanted hair, but also exfoliates your skin as well as helping to remove blackheads. All of which keep you looking young!
Women everywhere are figuring out the secret many have either been too subconscious or too covetous to tell. With the help of the anonymity of the internet women around the world are sharing their secret techniques for facial cleansing and care.
Shaving your face is no longer a routine only practiced by men.
So, before you head into the salon and pay for one of those expensive facials or spray some chemicals on your skin that will no doubt do more damage than good, take a look at why shaving may be the only thing you need.
