So this morning my 15 year old son, Luke needed to borrow my husband's razor because he couldn't find his but instead I gave him mine. At first he questioned the purple throw away tool but I assured him he could use it. I told him I often use Daddy's razor so he could certainly use mine.
After about 5 minutes he hollered down the stairs and told me he needed another one. He said, "Mom, this razor doesn't do ANYTHING. I've tried and tried and it just doesn't work." So I retrieved my hubby's razor and told him to throw mine away because it was probably worn out.
And then I had a thought.
I found the razor in the trash and saw he hadn't taken the plastic cover off the blade! He was shaving with the smooth edge of a nice plastic cover! We laughed and laughed as he told me how "stupid" it was for razors to have covers! LOL!
So then I had another thought.
About OUR facial hair.
Every single one of us has some unwanted facial hair, even if it's just in your eyebrow area. But I'd take a guess and bet that most of us have some hairs on our face that we'd rather not have, right? Whether it's a pesky hair (or 2) that shows up on our chin or maybe you have darker hairs in your mustache area you'd rather not have.
Here's what I want you to do today. Get a hand mirror and go outside.
If your bathroom has good lighting then you can look there and if you don't have either then there's nothing like looking in the rearview mirror of your car to see every last hair!
Really examine your face AND your neck. (I had this nasty little (okay, long) hair that was growing out of a mole on my neck that I didn't even know was there until a VERY good friend pointed it out. Please tell me if you see hairs growing on me that I can't see.
As you're examining your face and neck, what do you see? (Besides BEAUTY, of course!)
- Do your eyebrows need some shaping? Would a tweezer handle the job or do you need to get them shaped/waxed by a professional. (You can do this at most nail or hair salons for around ten bucks.) Maybe you have some gray hairs among your brows that need plucked out.
- Now check your mustache area. Women are not meant to have mustaches. Please get it waxed off. You can get a do-it-yourself kit or have a professional do it for around 5 dollars. Some women bleach theirs but if it's extra furry, then consider getting it waxed off. You'll be so glad you did.
- Now check your chin area. Run your fingers lightly along your whole chin. Do you feel any prickly hairs? Do you see any? These are not meant to be there. Either tweeze them out, OR get them waxed off. I have a little tool I use that I LOVE. It is actually called an eyebrow shaper and I take it an swipe it along my chin area and it takes off any unwanted hairs! And then about every 2-3 weeks I get that area waxed but in between times, I use this shaper to keep the area cleaned up. Here's a picture of the tool...this one comes in a pack of 3 and is $2.99 at Walgreens:
We are women and facial hair is not a good thing. Trust me on this.
So promise me that today you are going to inventory your facial hairs.
If you have at least ONE, make plans to get rid of it.
You'll be glad you did.
