2. When you epilate
Stay cool and calm
There's a lot of not-so-pleasant things we all do in the name of beauty, such as plucking, tweezing and buffing but when it comes to epilation, silk-epil helps to minimise the pain with features such as the cooling glove and the massaging rollers for an extra-gentle hair removal experience.
Have you ever done it in water?
Now you can! Braun Silk-epil Wet & Dry epilators mean you can epilate whilst in the shower or bath. Water minimises the pain by releasing the body's natural pain killers – endorphins.
Don't stress too much about how to hold the epilator, it should feel natural. Hold at a 90 degree angle to your legs. You can also pull your skin tightly with your other hand so it's easy for the device to glide over. Don't press down too hard, simply touch the epilator lightly on your skin.
Slow equals sexy
Take about 15 seconds from ankle to knee. Going too fast risks breaking the hair which may lead to ingrown hairs.
Run the epilator in an upward motion against the direction that the hairs are growing. This 'lifts' the shorter hairs giving you a smoother finish.
Wet or dry?
It's up to you but if dry, make sure your skin is completely dry. If wet, apply a little shower gel.
