A traditional razor can be an expensive and skin-irritating self-care experience; that’s where women’s electric razors and epilators come in. Not only do these methods of hair removal save time and money by eliminating the need to buy disposable razor heads, but they also save on water and can leave your skin with less irritation. Electric razors and shavers are also helpful when you’re a hurry — no fuss with shaving cream or water. You just need to make sure your razor or epilator is charged up before you shave, then head out the door. These types of hair-removal methods also minimize nicks and cuts, making them a great option for young women who are just starting to shave or for anyone who wants to avoid some of the risk of a traditional razor.
Facial hair removal for women.
Epilation has been a method of hair removal for many years, gaining popularity as epilators became more modern and innovative. Epilators differ from women’s hair trimmers in that they utilize a series of tweezer heads on a spinning mechanism. You guide the epilator up and down your face (or wherever you’d like to remove hair) while the tool removes your hairs at the root. Epilation is more akin to waxing than it is to shaving, leaving your skin smooth and without any of the stubble that results from simply trimming the hair rather than removing the follicle. Facial hair tends to return more sparsely the more often you epilate. Skin care products may be able to help alleviate some irritation when you use an epilator.
Additional epilator & electric razor considerations.
While some epilators are designed specifically for women’s facial hair removal, they can be used safely on any part of your body; many people may use them as an eyebrow epilator or bikini line epilator. You can use waterproof epilators or waterproof electric razors in the shower or bath (or even a bath and foot spa) where the pores of your skin become softer, creating more painless hair removal. A bathroom mirror may make it easier to see your hair follicles for more effective epilation. Epilators range in style, price and settings, including the option to change the speed of the tweezers. The pivoting head of the epilator makes it easy to get to hard-to-reach areas and the varying massaging speeds make it comfortable to use. Some epilators and electric razors may be charged via a charging station, while others require standard batteries.
