Epilation Guide (2 of 5)
You’ve finally decided that you want a more permanent solution when it comes to hair removal. You’ve waxed. You’ve plucked. You’ve shaved. So, an epilator is likely your most practical answer when it comes to getting rid of hair for good.
Protect Your Skin
First, be sure to purchase an epilator that is formulated for sensitive skin. Even if you don’t think you have sensitive skin, it’s best to play it safe if you’re a newbie when it comes to the epilator. The sensation you’ll feel on your skin is different from shaving or waxing. You don’t want the sting of the epilator to deter you from further use.
Next, use an epilator that promises to get rid of hair in small and sensitive areas of the body, such as the face and under the arms. If you can use the epilator a day or two after shaving, this is an indication that the device will be gentle on your skin. An epilator that has a swivel head is also ideal. This increases the chances that you’ll be able to maneuver the device easily. The swivel feature also keeps you from knicking or damaging your skin.
Whether you’re using an epilator for the first time or have used the device a few times, choose an epilator that includes lights. This makes it easy to see the hairs you want to remove when you’re using the epilator.
To make sure your skin has completely recovered from epilator use, use the device a day or two before you want to show off your well-toned legs or wear a tank top. This way, if you experience any redness or slight irritation from the epilator, it will have subsided before you’re ready to display the effects of the epilator.

Getting Ready for Use
Once you’ve chosen the perfect epilator, make sure the area of your body where you’ve using the epilator is exposed. The epilator should be held at a 90 degree angle. Make sure the device is held in the opposite direction of the hair you’re trying to remove. When you’re using the epilator on your legs, use the hand that is not holding the epilator to stretch the skin on the legs. This will ensure that you won’t leave any hair follicles untreated. If you’re sitting down, hold your legs out in front of you while using the epilator.
When you’re removing hair from the back of your legs or arms, use your other arm to feel the hair so you’ll know which areas to concentrate on with the epilator.
Remember to keep a mirror on hand while you’re using the epilator. Every few minutes, put the mirror up to the section of your body where you’re removing the hair to make sure you don’t miss any spots.
The epilator is one of the best solutions for hair removal. This is especially true if you’ve been trying other methods of hair removal for years and don’t want to keep up with the weekly or bi-weekly ritual of waxing or shaving. Epilators are also an alternative to visiting a medical spa for a series of laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal can be costly and may cause skin irritation. When you use the epilator, you can control how fast or slow the process goes, and you can immediately treat your skin if you notice redness or bumps.
