Stuff is getting real over here ya’ll! 🙂 I shared myself using my tried and true Tinkle Razors on stories a few weeks ago and I got such a great response! We are all stuck at home together and we need this whole community of sisters to share their at home beauty secrets right now LOL.

Tinkle Razor, Dermaplaning, whatever you call it, it’s basically shaving your face.

I’ve visited professionals to get waxed and threaded before but once I got Dermaplaning done during a facial a year ago I was HOOKED! Today I am answering some of the most commonly asked questions that came through a few weeks ago like; “how often do I use my Tinkle Razors?”, “how many times do I use them until I throw them out?” and the most asked question “does my hair grow back thicker?”.

What does the Tinkle Razor do? The Tinkle Razor is a thin, stainless steel razor blade that is sharp enough to easily remove the hairs on your face, but not as sharp as a razor that you would use on your legs or body.The razor exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz.  Your skin will look so much smoother and brighter. And not to mention crazy soft! Having a smooth surface allows for serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeper and foundation to go on smoother. 

How Do I Use Them? After washing my face, I apply a light moisturizer or coconut oil so the razor glides a little smoother.  Simply hold the Tinkle Razor in a diagonal position and slightly pull your skin with the other hand then drag the razor lightly across each area of your face to remove hair and dead skin cells. After shaving, finish your typical night time routine.  I will wash my face again since I typically use coconut oil then apply a toner, serum, moisturizer and eye cream.

When you begin doing this for the first month you may want to consider skipping any stronger treatments like retinol, until the next day since the serums will penetrate deeper into your skin, but this really depends on your skin type and sensitivity.

I’ll run my razor under scorching hot water and rubbing alcohol to wash and then let dry completely before replacing the plastic cover.

How Long Does One Razor Last? I use these exact Tinkle Razors and honestly I can use mine like 8-10 times before tossing. Maybe it depends on how thick your hair is but personally I can use mine quite a few times before throwing out. If you notice your razor getting dull, it’s time to throw it out.

Does My Hair Grow Back Thicker or Darker? No. I have been doing this for about 8 months now and my hair is exactly the same. It grows back just like the peach fuzz its always been lol.

How Often Do I Shave My Face? OMG, if you would have asked me 5 years ago if this is a question I thought I would be answering and giving tips on I would have laughed! I typically do it every 2-3 weeks. My upper lip area I will do every two weeks but everywhere else can go up to 3 weeks.

What Areas of My Face Do I Use This On? Girl, EVERYWHERE, ha! My upper lip, my eyebrows, my sideburns, all around. If you got peach fuzz there, use this!

Well, this concludes today’s topic of how to shave your face LOL. Let me know if you have an other questions I may have missed!
