For women, that slight mustache or other unsightly facial hair has got to go. Tweezing is the way most females deal with facial hair, but it’s time-consuming and hurts. Electrolysis or laser hair removals are expensive options. Shaving is one of the best ways to remove unwanted facial hair, but you don’t want to knick yourself when using a blade on your face. A minute Japanese razor sold by Shiseido does the trick for female facial hair removal.
These tiny razors are designed not only for peach fuzz and mustache hairs, but are small and safe enough to use on eyebrows. Hold them the way you would a pencil. These are dry razors, so you don’t have to use any shaving cream or gel. In fact, using a shaving cream makes the razors less efficient. Just make sure your skin is clean – and dry – before shaving. Afterward, put on moisturizer. Don’t believe the old stories about shaving making hair grow back excessively – they simply aren’t true. Although they are disposable, you can use them multiple times, and they come in packs of three. Clean the blade with rubbing alcohol after each use, and each razor will likely last several weeks – if you shave daily. If you shave weekly or more often, these little razors should last a long time.
In Japan, it’s customary for women to shave peach fuzz off of their faces, and they have been using these tiny razors for decades. Now the trend is heading toward the West, and celebrities are taking it up. Women find that shaving brightens their complexions, and improves makeup application. When you shave the entire face, it’s basically an exfoliating process – something men have known for years. In many ways, it’s similar to dermaplaning, only much, much cheaper. If you are prone to breakouts, you may them happening less often once you start shaving regularly.
Don’t worry about cutting yourself. While these tiny razors are sharp, they are also safe, as they have no jagged edges. Shiseido provides clear instructions and a diagram about how to use the product. Tips include always shaving the way your hair grows, and always using a downward movement. Do not shave against the grain, the way guys shave their beards. It won’t take long to get the hang of it and your skin will look terrific.
