Why shaving your face is generally an awful idea

Another day, another controversial story around women’s beauty habits and how they’re wrong/unattractive/incorrectly performed. But it’s not the usual suspects, like legs or underarms getting the razor treatment: it’s faces.
An article on the MailOnline this week suggested that if women took to shaving our faces, we could expect colossal anti-ageing benefits. Their reasoning mainly is that shaving is a kind of exfoliation, and that when the skin is exfoliated, more collagen is produced and cell renewal speeds up to heal the perceived trauma. It seems to remiss at this point not to mention that men ‘age better’ because they tend to have more sebum in their skin, which acts like an oily protective barrier. Oh, and their skin is about 25% thicker. AND they have more collagen than ladies in the first place. Just to put that one to rest.
