Hair removal is a personal choice generally, an average woman like you and me spend approximately 60 days of their life shaving. Many of us prefer shaving or waxing over epilation. However it is tiresome and irritating. Though shaving is easy, the only downside is you have to do it quite often, which itself is infuriating. Shaving leaves micro tears in your body that is more prone to infections. But who cares about infections when the hair will be visible within days? Shaving only removes hair from the surface part. That is why most women get help from waxing. Because it not only pulls out hair from roots, waxing lasts longer than shaving too. But the downside is, to wax again; you will need the hair to grow back to a 3 inch or more. Or else, the wax will not be able to grip the hair. Epilating however, gives you the best of both i.e. the velvetiness of shaving and the long-lasting effects of waxing, and above you don’t have to wait for your hair to grow out to a desired length for your next use. Epilating is much faster and far less messy than that of waxing, and with the right epilator, your hair removal sessions will be almost as swift as shaving.
Epilators are rulers of hair removal. Epilator works by pulling hairs from the follicle using a spinning heads of tweezers. That sounds quite painful, but there are now ample amount of epilators designed to be less painful. Because hair is plucked from the root, it usually takes around 3-4 weeks to grow back; making epilation one of the most fitting hair-removal methods around. Epilators can be used on every part of your body, even the most sensitive areas.
However there are certain features one has to keep in mind before getting the epilator. These features allow you to choose the perfect epilator wisely.
Epilators are available in both corded and cordless models. Most of the epilators are two AA battery operated. While the rechargeable ones can last more than 40 minutes after 1 hour charging. Choosing the cordless models are more convenient because they are portable and can be used anywhere.
Some epilators are entirely waterproof, which means you can use them in the shower. Dry ones can be used in front of the bathroom mirror when you’re in a hurry. The advantage of using an epilator in the shower is that you can add gel to your epilation routine, which results in better relief.
Most epilators use tweezers on discs to pull hair from the root. The number of the tweezers differs from model to model. Some models have as many as 48, which is perfect for fine hairs. However less expensive models have fewer tweezers. Discs that have ceramic and hypo-allergenic, are better for removing fine hair and are less irritating.
Some epilators offers 2 speed settings. It is best if you are using an epilator for the first time to slow the speed, as it is gentler on the skin. Once you get used to, you can set the high speed and get more effective results.
Numerous epilators come with additional grooming tools, like a razor and bikini trimmer. Some luxury brands even included tweezers for eyebrow shaping.
Some very short hairs are difficult to see. They are hardly visible even under bright light. However some epilators come with mini laser spot light that beams the targeted area (specially your facial hair) to make you work more effectively on it.
Some epilators include antimicrobial protection in them. This feature is for added safety. Make sure to clean your epilators as much as possible as dangerous bacteria can lead to skin irritation or infections.
I now will like to share with you the 8 most effective and best epilator for women.
