- Would you shave your face in the name of beauty? Do you want soft supple, photo-ready skin without the stubble? In the world of beauty, we strive to find the perfect balance between honouring ancient remedies and taking advantage of modern technology. Read on to find out more about Kao Saori and dermaplaning.
Japan, especially, is a part of the world that beautifully blends ritual and modern advances to honour both past and present. The Japanese term Kao Saori, a term that literally means “shaved face,” is one that calls to mind the simplicity of using a blade to shave one’s skin. However, when we look at the modern day alternative, technology has (thankfully) evolved. In Japan, women have been “shaving” their faces in order to achieve dewy, hairless, flawless skin. Even though shaving may seem unusual for a female to perform on her face, what was once considered taboo can be reinvented now that we understand the benefits of this ancient practice.
Now known more commonly as dermaplaning, shaving the face acts as a potent exfoliator, taking off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. When we remove both dead skin and vellus hair (both of which every woman has), we remove the barrier to skincare product penetration and reveal skin that you never knew could look so good.
One such product that can help you safely and effectively dermaplane from the comfort of your own home without the need for costly salon appointments, is the DERMAFLASH LUXE+ Anti-Ageing, Exfoliation + Peach Fuzz Removal Device.
Designed by dermatologists, DERMAFLASH LUXE+ removes dead cells, debris build-up and peach fuzz from the surface layer of the skin. Results can be seen immediately, revealing a smoother, picture-perfect complexion.
As DERMAFLASH LUXE+ founder, Dara Levy, likes to say, “the skin you want is hiding just beneath the skin that you see.” Kao Saori can now be done at home, safely, elegantly, and with a quite a bit less risk than an open blade offers.
DERMAFLASH LUXE+ is today’s answer to Kao Saori and the go-to for glowing, radiant skin. Refresh your routine in time for summer with the brand new colourway, Sea Foam.
