Dermaplaning or Oilplaning? Here’s How TikTok Suggests Shaving Your Face

According to TikTok, ‘oilplaning’, applying face oil to your skin before shaving it, is the new wave of dermaplaning. While this seems like a safety hazard, dermatologists say it’s actually better for your skin — especially if your skin is dry. “By first applying an emollient-rich facial oil, you add a layer of protection to the skin barrier and increase the glide of your blade — comparable to using a shaving cream,” explains dermatologist Dr. Hadley King, MD, FAAD. “This helps reduce the risk of irritation and nicks, and is particularly helpful for those with dry or sensitive skin.”
