I have read a lot of info on it lately and curious if any of you have tried it. Several years ago I worked with a young woman that shaved her upper lip area so I tried it. Seemed to work fine and the hair didn't grow back any darker or coarser than it previously was. Now I didn't shave my entire face which is what I'm asking about here but wanted to let you know that I did dabble in it .
"Scouring the Internet, I found that Kate Somerville was a proponent of facial shaving. You mean to tell me that the queen of clear, youthful skin is down with shaving shenanigans? She told Style.com that Elizabeth Taylor's cosmetic dermatologist disclosed that Elizabeth shaved her face, as did Marilyn Monroe and Cleopatra. It makes your makeup go on smoother, gives you a glow, and because it's a razor, you're physically exfoliating your skin — great for antiaging! Why do you think men look so youthful as they age? They shave a majority of their lives!"
BTW - I have not idea who Kate Somerville is.
So tell me ladies, do any of you (or your daughters) shave your face?
Interesting. No, I haven't. But I remember the mother, Carolyn, on Bravo's Housewives of New Jersey saying she always has shaved her face. I have always thought that it would grow back and that the hairs would get thicker. I bet a lot of women do shave, especially women who have darker hair on arms and faces. It's just never been talked about maybe? (Course, here and with us, we have a history of talking about EVERYTHING. LOL)
But, but wait...I think I remember reading somewhere--maybe in some motion picture related article or book--that the fine hairs on our faces gives women a dewy (dewey?) look on camera. Hmmm...curious.
BTW, on different note: I remember Elizabeth Taylor saying she used no commercial 'products' (or cleaners) on her face...just water.
