Braun Silk Epil X'elle Body Epilation System
Epilating 101
Start with clean, dry skin. Hold skin taught while removing hair. This will cut down on the irritation and pain. The first few times you use an epilator, its not going to be a joy. It hurts. For me, its comparable to waxing. After the first 2-3 tries, it shouldnt hurt much. Once you get used to the process, ditch the beginner head. It will be faster and easier to use. Keep up with it when youre starting. I find that once a week is good. Any longer and I have to trim the hair in order to epilate. Use soothing lotion, a cool compress, ice pack, or cool shower to ease irritation after removing hair. After you have used the epilator a few times, your skin wont get very irritated.
