Schick Hydro Silk Touch-Up Multipurpose Dermaplaning Tool

At-home dermaplaning has become a major beauty trend for smooth, radiant skin. The treatment involves using a single blade to carefully remove hair and dead skin from your face, which exfoliates your skin and makes it easier to evenly apply makeup. According to TikTok, the Schick Hydro Silk Touch-Up Dermaplaning Tool is a great safe option for using at home. The $5 pack comes with three disposable razors and an extra attachment for eyebrow shaping. 

In a sponsored TikTok video with over 8,000 views, dermatologist Dr. Joy Park calls these razors "safe to do at home and super effective," adding that dermaplaning won't make your hair grow back thicker and can actually help prevent acne.
