8 Things You Shouldn’t Put Yourself Through
Dermaplaning at home
Dermaplaning means having “an extra close shave, taking the superficial dead skin off [your face] as well as the peach fuzz,” said Dr. Prichard. So, you shouldn’t do this at home because it takes a certain level of skill and you can risk to cut yourself. Moreover, if you do it wrong, this process “could cause paralysis, droopy eyelids, and more,” he said.
Instead, you can choose other safer alternatives, such as dimmer rollers or micro needling, but try not to “press too hard or get overaggressive,” Dr. Prichard added. “Set up an appointment with an aesthetician for any questions about skincare,” he suggests.
