BEAUTY TREND ALERT: Shaving your face for better skin


Face shaving: say what?????

Dear readers,

A few days ago I received a newsletter from Birchbox featuring this face shaving trend that's called Kao Sori in Japan. Apparently it has been going on for decades.

Face shaving is comparable to exfoliating your skin or using dermabrasion systems in the sense that it will get rid of dead skin cells and therefore increase collagen production.

We already have heard of the benefits of exfoliating the skin on a regularly basis. There's no point in spending half your salary in expensive skincare products for the promise of eternal youth. If your skin pores are clogged up with dead skin cells no amount of beneficial anti-ageing ingredients will ever be able to come through.

But are we ready to add face shaving into our beauty routine? Only time will tell.

What do you think of this trend? Yay or nay?
