Ladies, let’s talk about body hair. If shaving just isn’t your thing and waxing is becoming a drag, it might be time to reconsider your hair removal options. Enter the epilator for women. This clever little device can be a real money saver (no more waxing!) in the long run and gives seriously smooth results.

How to Epilate Properly

Gently exfoliate

This is a must before every session! It ensures you’re squeaky clean and removes any dead skin cells, helping to prevent those pesky ingrown hairs.

Pull skin taut

This makes the process less painful by helping the epilator to pick up the hairs. Hold at a 90-degree angle and always epilate against the direction in which the hair is growing.

Go slow

Although it can be tempting, try not to rush.  This can break the hairs and make them tricky to remove.

Apply a soothing gel

Applying greasy lotions and moisturizers after epilating can clog the hair follicles and increase the risk of ingrown hairs. Opt for a gel with aloe vera or tea tree oil to soothe the skin.

Epilator Top Tips: First-Timers

Shave a few days before

No, that’s not a typo! Epilating works best on shorter hairs, which are much more comfortable to pluck

Select a low setting

This will help your skin get used to the sensation of plucking and make more sensitive areas (we’re looking at you, ankles) easier to handle.

Epilate at night

This will give your skin time to recover. Any redness or inflammation will reduce, so you can say yes to skirts the next morning!
