Dermaplaning: Everything You Need To Know


This month, we’re not just treating you to trending beauty products, but introducing you to all the latest trending beauty treatments! Everyone has been talking about dermaplaning recently, from dermatologists to makeup artists and beauty experts, but what is the craze all about?

What Is Dermaplaning?

The hottest trend of 2019, dermaplaning has become one of the most requested skincare treatments across the UK. It involves using a single blade, held at a 45-degree angle, to manually cleanse and exfoliate your complexion by shaving away the top layer of your skin. I know this sounds a bit scary, but it’s actually very straight-forward!

Essentially, you’re shaving your face and removing all the fine hairs and dead skin cells that are trapped on the surface. It shaves away dullness and will leave you with a smooth, soft-to-the-touch finish!

What Are The Benefits Of Dermaplaning?

  • A Youthful And Bright Complexion

 As the treatment removes dead skin cells, it rejuvenates skin and reveals a brighter, more youthful complexion beneath. Forget dull skin, this exfoliation treatment maintains an even and healthy glow!

  • Flawless Makeup Application

By shaving all the fine hairs and peach fuzz from your face, your skin will be silky smooth. You can then apply your foundation flawlessly, as you’ll have the perfect base to work off. Cakey makeup will now be a thing of the past as you’re guaranteed a seamless finish.

  • Cleaner And Clearer Skin

Your skin will also be free of all the fine hairs that trap oil and dirt on your skin. Say goodbye to clogged pores and hello to a clearer complexion!

  • Skincare Products Will Sink In Better

After having a dermaplaning treatment, your skin becomes particularly receptive to all the skincare products that you apply. With no hair, dead skin or dirt to create a barrier, your creams and oils will sink effortlessly into your skin. It’s the perfect time to use hydrating serums and moisturisers. Your complexion will look better than ever!

Can I Have A Dermaplaning Treatment?

Whatever your skin type, you can have a dermaplaning treatment. It shouldn’t cause any irritation. You only need to avoid it if you suffer from acne. You could do it at home using a facial shaving wand (though make sure you have a steady hand and use good lighting), or go to a beautician for the professional effect.

Oh, and one last thing, dermaplaning will not cause your facial hair to grow back darker and coarser. That’s actually a myth. A quick search for #dermaplaning will convince you:
