Introducing Dreamiskin's cult Derma Razor which is quickly becoming the new must-have skincare product.

Over 4.6 million people witnessed the "magic" product this weekend and they can't all be wrong.


In a recent video, Tik Tok star Nikita Chaithoo showed off the $25 eco-friendly derma razor generating more than 800 comments and 139,000 likes.

"Obsessed," one user commented.

"Omg I neeeeeed," another posted.

But what is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a relatively new mainstream skincare regime that uses a fine razor to shave vellus hair or 'peach fuzz' from your face.

This works to exfoliate the skin removing dirt, excess oil, and previous makeup build-up, as well as brightening and smoothing the skin.

The treatment has also been known to soften fine lines and wrinkles, and even ease hyperpigmentation.

Skin therapists recommend using the derma razor just once or twice a month to allow the skin's surface to naturally rebuild.

After dermaplaning, your skin becomes the ultimate base for skincare penetration, able to deeply absorb nourishing products, allowing for glowy, plump skin.

How do I use the derma razor?

Dreamiksin recommends starting with a freshly cleansed face with hair tied back to limit hair sticking to the face.

While you can dermaplane dry skin, skincare enthusiasts say you get the best results from using aloe vera gel, facial oil or coconut oil to easily remove impurities.

As Nikita instructs in the video, hold the Derma Razor at a 45-degree angle and gently stroke in the direction of the hair, dermaplaning downwards.

After each stroke, wipe the blade on a cotton pad to see the results, gently washing your face afterwards to remove any remaining hairs.

It's important to only apply a face serum after dermaplaning, not applying makeup for 24 hours to reduce risk of irritation.

Spa treatment at home

Seeing the excess hair and dirt come off your face is "extremely satisfying," and that's why so many people are hailing this as their new favourite skincare secret.

"I used to pay $60 to have my face dermaplaned," one customer wrote on Dermiskin's website, "Easy to use, great results, my skin looks great and I’m saving money by doing it at home!"

"Simply the best!" another said "Leaves your face super soft, and smooth."
