How to epilate: tips for first-time users
Evenings are the best time for epilation; you’re more relaxed, and any minor bumps will be gone by the morning! The best preparation is exfoliating in warm water. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed and will help to reduce those dreaded ingrown hairs. Use an exfoliating scrub or mitt.
When epilating, hold your epilator so that it feels natural. Hold at a 90-degree angle to your legs and run the epilator in an upward motion against the direction of hair growth. There’s no need to press down too hard; simply touch the epilator lightly on the skin. Braun Silk-épil Wet & Dry can be used in the bath or shower for additional comfort. The massaging rollers also help to minimize discomfort. With regular use, epilation becomes virtually painless.
The golden rule is to moisturize after epilation, not before. Apply body lotion for the best results and get set for super-soft, silky skin in the morning.
