Here's How to Use an Epilator without Any Pain

If you think an epilator hurts too much, then we're here to change your mind! Epilation pain, with these smart epilation tips, will become a thing of the past. Use an epilator smartly and it will keep any epilation pain to an absolute minimum. We will teach you proper prep and aftercare for pain-free hair removal in the comfort of your home, as well as explain how using the right tools will make the process less painful.

What is epilation?

Unlike waxing and tweezing, epilation goes to the root of the hair follicle below the skin surface. Epilation strengthens the skin cells by scraping the hair at the root, rather than stripping the skin of its nutrients along with the hair, the unfortunate result of methods such as waxing.

An epilator such as the Silky Soft 2 in 1 Epilator & Shaver - VHES-02 will help you understand how to epilate like a pro in no time. It has two detachable attachment heads, the Epilator, and the Shaver. One of the best uses of an epilator is that it makes the skin smooth and hair-free for days along with 42 spinning tweezers.

How to Use an Epilator?

By learning how to use it correctly without discomfort, shake off the reluctance and reach for that epilator you’ve been avoiding.

  1. Have A Warm Shower

The secret to success is preparation. Prepare your skin before epilating. A warm bath or shower will smooth the hair on your body while gently opening your skin's pores. This will make the epilation process easier and reduce the pain.

  1. Exfoliate

To enjoy pain-free hair removal and prevent skin irritation after epilating, exfoliation is essential. In the bath or shower, a gentle body scrub can remove dead skin cells and unblock pores.

  1. Shave Beforehand 

By shaving a few days earlier, you can make epilating hurt less. Unlike shaving, you would not have to wait for the hair to grow a certain length until you can epilate again. The more often you epilate, the more accustomed your skin will be, to the sensation.

  1. Go Slowly 

The epilation race for the smoothest skin can be won slowly and gradually. Move the epilator to the surface of your skin at a 90-degree angle slowly to prevent embedded hair and discomfort from epilation. Note that it may be because of extra strain on the skin if an epilator hurts too much. Do not push down, but gently grip and guide your epilator across the skin for a painless epilator experience, pulling the skin taut to improve maneuverability where possible.

  1. Keep Your Skin Taut

You should keep the skin tense at all times when epilating, to allow the tweezers easy access to the hair and protect yourself from accidental pinching. Epilating works better on flat surfaces, so when epilating sensitive areas such as upper thighs, underarms, or bikini line where the skin is not flat, use your free hand to stretch the skin.

  1. Moisturize

Apply a nourishing moisturizer to decrease skin irritation after using an epilator. It will soothe the skin and achieve smooth, silky results.

Pro Tip: Epilate Right after Your Period

During menstrual bleeding, epilation can hurt more. Many women say their bodies are the least sensitive to external pain in the 3 or 4 days right after, and the most vulnerable right before their period. For your pain tolerance, you may or may not even find a similar trend. If you do, then right after your period, you will find it less difficult to epilate. But it may be easier to epilate during your next cycle or in the days after if you have trackable or daily periods.
