I have been trying to think of something that I could try to change my rigid mind about, and this morning while in the shower.. it hit me.
While spa-ing this weekend some friends and I were told an interesting idea concerning cell rejuvenation. The Master Estitician claimed that women should shave their faces in order to exfoliate and encourage new cell reproduction on your face.
I was blown away and albeit hesitant to think this wasn't some elaborate Punk'D episode in which I would start shaving and next month have Billy Maze's thick facial hair, or worse.
Men tend to age better because of their daily ritual of shaving.
That your hair does not grow back darker or thicker... wive's tale.
Then she showed us her smooth face and said the last time she shaved was a week ago.
When she left the room we busted up laughing at the visual. Me. My husband. Morning time. Side by Side. Faces covered in shaving cream. There was no way I was about to take a razor to my face. I can just see it now... Showing up to story time with little pieces of toilet paper stuck to my nicked up chin and forehead ( yes.. you are even supposed to shave your forehead).
However, in order to answer Linds's plea I have done some research on the topic and maybe even have started to "Think Different."
This news report claims that "women have been shaving for decades," and that "it can achieve a similar result as microderm abrasion that can cost over $100."
Harper's Bazaar ran a story about a woman who gets her face professionally shaved, or what she called "microplaning," to achieve a beautiful glow.
Pretty interesting. I wouldn't have tried it originally, but now I am not sure and I am putting it as my "think different" topic. Anyone know anything about this?? Has this made you "think different"
I am not tagging anyone persay, but I would encourage everyone to pick something "think different" about, then post about it. It should be interesting.
