Epilating - hair removal for both long and short hair
Electric epilators pull multiple hairs out from the root using rotating discs or tweezers and, unlike waxing, can catch even short hairs. It is an effective hair removal method that lasts and is reusable.
Epilate after a warm bath or shower - this opens the pores to the skin and softens the hair to reduce pain.
Pull the skin taut - this allows the epilator to catch as many hairs as possible.
Electric razors - Similar to shaving, an electric razor cuts the hair at the surface of the skin
These can be reused but cost more, and are less portable than manual razors. Approximately 7% of women prefer this hair removal method.
Tweezing - to catch every last hair
Tweezing is the perfect way to catch any hairs missed when using the hair removal methods we've already mentioned. It's also perfect for eyebrows and any stray facial hairs you want to remove. Our tips: Apply a hot flannel or have a warm shower beforehand - this opens the pours making the hairs easier to remove. Apply a cold flannel to your skin afterwards - this helps to reduce any redness and soothes the skin.
Laser treatment - Permanent hair removal
This involves light impulses penetrating deep into the skin, heating the root of the hair, and destroying it. This is a more expensive method of hair removal and requires many separate sessions to achieve this.
