On top of marrying multiple rich dudes, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor had something else in common: They both shaved their faces and had amazing skin because of it.
Uh oh. Can shaving a woman’s face be a good thing?
Dermaplaning (the clinical term for using a straight-edge-like facial razor on skin to mechanically — not chemically — exfoliate it) has many beautiful benefits, as Monroe and Taylor knew: It removes deep layers of dead skin cells thoroughly (rather than moving them around on your face as you exfoliate, which can happen with scrubs); it’s a fine exfoliation rather than gritty (think of it as wearing ice skates rather than golf shoes on an ice rink… and it gets rid of the vellus hairs (the tiny peach fuzz that covers your face) that can make your complexion look lackluster and can even contribute to clogged pores that break you out.
I gotta think about this one.
