Nothing is debilating compared to epilators. When the first devices were launched in the ‘80s, they had been instruments of torture. If your only experience with epilation is trying out your mom’s decades-old device (or hearing horror stories from other people who have used them previously) it may be time to revisit the newer electrical beauty gadgets, which are a great deal more advanced and much less painful.
Why You Need to Epilate?
Like waxing, epilation removes the hair at the root, giving you much longer-lasting results compared methods such as shaving or depilatory creams. As an additional bonus, epilators only grab hairs, not skin won’t remove fake tan in the way waxing can. In summary, you get longer-lasting results than shaving or creams, with less waiting time (and subsequent regrowth) than waxing.
How To Handle Epilator Pain?
I am not going to lie, epilating is not painless, as some advertising campaigns would have you believe. But is is the experience. I’ve used various devices over the years and have seen the market move on dramatically though I’ve never been a epilator. It hurts a lot but the more you do it, the more you can stand it. To help you work out if it is for you, as a beginner, I ran through the main hair-removal places and recorded the pain level from 10 (where 0 is no pain at all, 5 can totally do this and 10 is that I give up, this is too much). Concerning device, I used the Braun Silk-épil 9 (#180), which is among the pricier options, but includes a whole host of extra attachments and gadgets to help make epilating a simpler process.
How To Epilate The Bikini Area?
How successful your epilation will be depends upon how much hair you want to remove. I was surprised by how much I could tolerate the pain. The epilator I use has a trimmer head that can be used for this purpose.
In maneuvering what is quite a large device to remove hairs in intimate places the difficulty comes for me. If you’re just looking to tidy up your bikini line, it’s really great and a handy alternative to getting a wax if you are short on time, shy, or too lazy to book a salon appointment. However, if you’re used to a wax that is Brazilian or Hollywood, you’ll have to be proficient at contorting yourself into positions that are unusual. The best way to test epilating the bikini area is to find a wax, then use an epilator to eliminate regrowth. I was able to use a mix of the epilator and trimmer/electric razor to get results similar to a complete bikini wax. Beyond this, I think there’s a risk of grabbing skin, not hair.
Follow these tips to get the very best epilation experience.
1. Trim long hair to prevent the strands from clogging the tweezers. The stubble should be at most so the hairs can be grasped by the teeth properly.
2. The pain will be intense if the epilator move slowly. It will require more attempts, if it move over the skin. Regardless of what, get over the psychological barrier of inflicting pain.
3. The muscles in this bikini area cannot keep the skin tight. With one hand use another to maintain the skin as flat as possible so it doesn’t get pinched and damaged from the rotating teeth.
4. Avoid using a epilator or shower as you will need to see what you are doing down there.
5. 1 advantage of epilating is the re-growing hair is softer and not bristly and that stubble is avoided. Make sure to use hair conditioner to keep the emerging hairs are healthy and soft.
6. After treatment, the skin will be tender and the hair follicles may be swollen. Avoid using unless you are a glutton for pain, rubbing after-shave or alcohol.
