While waxing and sugaring pull away hair and skin cells in one go, epilating is more precise, but you still benefit from the long-lasting benefits of removing hair from the root. An epilator removes facial hair by using rotating tweezers or epilator discs to pinch the hair and pull it out of the pores along with the follicle. This may be a challenge for sensitive skin types, but does not have to be if you follow the manufacturer guide.
Master the art: Firstly, exfoliate the skin 24 hours before epilation to brush away dead skin and avoid ingrown hairs. With the Philips Epilator Series 8000 epilator you can use the body exfoliation brush, followed by the body massager head to stimulate the blood flow. Use the facial attachment, wet or dry, and place the epilator at right angle to the skin so that the epilator head covers the area to be epilated. Tighten the skin with your free hand and drive the device slowly against the direction of hair growth. The epilator head with structured ceramic surface for extra grip, removes even the shortest and finest hair at a superfast pace.
Pros: Works fast, thoroughly even with short hair, leaving you with 2-4 weeks smooth hairless skin .
Cons: Can tease somewhat on sensitive skin, not suitable for eyebrows.
