Many people have heard about epilators, since they have been around now for more than two decades. What many do not know, however, is that significant technological advances have made it possible to use an epilator these days without the discomfort that used to accompany the process.
There is no doubt that older epilators created a “pulling” effect when in use. Because of this, sensitive areas on the user’s body would feel sharp, quick bursts of pain. For that reason, the epilator fad quickly came and went. Women across the world returned to the relative comfort of their manual razors.
That sent scientists back to the drawing board, and they came up with designs that were more respectful when pulling the hair out of the follicle. Because of this, luxury beauty brands have begun to promote these devices again.
There have always been certain advantages to using an epilator, and that’s what caused the excitement in the first place. First of all, it’s much faster and less fuss to use one, because all you have to do is run it over bare skin whenever you want to smooth the area
Secondly, because it is capable of pulling the very deep root of each hair out, you will have a smooth surface for a long time. It will take weeks for stubble to begin to appear at the surface of the skin.
Obviously, extending the amount of time that you can remain is a big benefit. Waxing is one alternative, but doing it at home is incredibly messy and even tedious, and having it done in a professional salon setting can become expensive quite fast.
Here are a few quick tips about how to maximize your experience with an epilator:
Take a nice warm shower before you start. Warm water will expand/open your pores, allowing the device to pull was far less discomfort.
Start on a less sensitive area such as your legs. Many women begin straightaway with their private regions, but those are awfully sensitive, and it’s a good idea to get used to how the machine feels on an area with a less concentrated cluster of nerve endings.
And on that same note, experiment with which settings are best for your skin. Almost all of these devices have speeds that move faster or slower, and you will find that adjusting them can make a big difference.
Allow some time between when you clear your skin, and when you have to go out in public. It’s not uncommon, especially with your skin being unused to the process, to find redness spread one tooth finished. This should go away within an hour or two.
We wish you the best in finding a practical solution to your grooming needs. Don’t give up on your epilator at the first little tweak of pain. It can be a bit difficult at first to find the proper speed, not to mention the proper state of your skin, but it is well worth the effort.
