How to use an epilator |Three stages for incredibly soft skin
Before hair removal at home
Preparation is everything. As all beauty experts know, all beauty treatments require some planning. So, look what you have to do before we teach you how to wax at home:
1. Coordination is crucial
Say good-bye the night before to holster yourself in that black dress to show off your legs or on your date dress. This way, you’ll have 24 hours to reduce irritation.
The night is the ideal time for a date with the epilator. You will be more relaxed, the small inflammations will be gone in the morning, and you will wake up with the softest and sexiest skin you can imagine.
2. Exfoliate the skin, the magic word
Take a hot shower, relax and exfoliate the skin to avoid the dreaded enchanted hair. Use a gel or glove to exfoliate the skin or rub the skin with a dry towel. Alternatively, the Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa features an innovative exfoliating brush to exfoliate the skin 4 times better than exfoliating the skin manually.
When you wax
1. Stay cool and relaxed
With beauty treatments, we undergo many sacrifices, such as pulling hairs with tweezers or cleaning our nails, but when it comes to hair removal at home, Silk-épil helps minimize pain thanks to features like the refreshing glove and massage rollers to make the hair removal process at home incredibly smooth.
2. Have you ever done it in the water?
Now you can! Braun Silk-épil 9 Wet & Dry epilators allow you to shave in the shower or bathtub. Water minimizes pain by helping to release the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins.
3. Hold it firmly
Don’t worry too much about how to hold the epilator, as long as it’s natural to you. Hold it at a 90-degree angle to your legs. You can also pull the skin to tighten it with your other hand so that the epilator slides more smoothly. Do not squeeze too tightly; just touch the skin gently.
4. Slow but safe
Spend about 15 seconds going from heel to knee. If you go too fast, the hair could break and result in the hair in the ency.
5. Control the direction
Slide the epilator upwards in an upward motion in the opposite direction to hair growth. This lifts your hair short and gives you a softer finish.
After hair removal at home
1. Perfect care
The golden rule is to hydrate AFTER hair removal, not before. Apply nourishing body lotion for a smooth, incredible result and get ready to wake up the next morning with super-soft skin.
2. Repeat the operation
If you’re getting started on hair removal, say good-bye once a week and every time you do, you’ll notice that discomfort decreases and satisfaction increases. If you’re an expert, you can slow down and wax every three weeks.
