I know I freaked some of you out with my scary report on self-dermaplaning. The first go ’round was rather brutal. During my second effort at the procedure, I fared far better. No slicing. Avoided bloodletting. Great results. I refined my technique. I’ve learned it’s vitally important to cleanse the skin completely of all oils, products, and dirt before beginning. Prepare the skin with alcohol. Keep your eye on the blade and the blade at an angle. Don’t retread the same area more than twice. The moral of the skin story is that DIY dermaplaning is sketchy as fuck at first, but with a little practice it’s completely possible to safely accomplish.
