5 reasons why you should be shaving your face

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at STCU chapter.

                                                1. It’s a great exfoliant

                                                 Shaving your face scrapes off the dead skin cells, better than any other tool available



                                                    2. It leaves your skin feeling baby soft

                                                    With the dead skin gone the new skin feels like new



                                                   3. Makeup applies smoother

                                                   With less dead skin makeup applies more evenly and it takes less to get the perfect effect



                                                  4. It cleans your pores

                                                  Shaving cleans off the dirt on your face that clog your pores


                                                   5. It slows aging   

                                                    Exfoliation causes new cells to surface giving the appearance of younger skin


If you don’t believe me, dermatologist Neal Schulz seconds this claiming that; “It also makes your skin smoother, allows any products you apply after to penetrate deeper, and promotes cellular turnover, which is one of the reasons men always look five or so years younger than their age, since they’re constantly exfoliating through shaving and encouraging new cells to the surface of your skin,”
