  1. Braun Epilator Silk Epil | Wet And Dry Epilator For Women

Since Braun is such a top notch product and has so many great epilators in its range, we are reaching out to a second epilator from the same brand. Now this is a bit more expensive and that is why it’s in the 3rd spot but it’s a blessing in disguise when it comes to epilation!

Product Features :

The Philips Corded Compact Epilator does more than one can ask for. The functionalities are similar to the Satinelle Epilator. The only difference being the tweezers which are fewer than the Norelco Satinelle Epilator. But the device is very efficient for a salon style freshly waxed skin effect on your body.

Conclusion

These are the Top 10 best epilator for Women in India. Make sure you follow the instructions on the package religiously before using the product on yourself. Epilation is much trickier than regular shaving in the bathroom so make sure you get used to handling the device and the way it works on the skin. It is true that epilation is painful but it is definitely not as painful as waxing. The first few times you might feel a tugging sensation and a zing but you will eventually get used to it. Before you know, you would be epilating while enjoying a pizza and playing your favourite music on.

Tips To Keep In Mind During Hair Removal Using An Electric Epilator

Before you start ordering your first epilator (which you should), here are some handy tips to make sure you have a friendly beginning to epilation using an electric epilator and the do’s and don’ts of epilation.

1. Do Not Fuss Too Much About The Pain

Trust me, I have been there. The first time I used an electric Epilator, I was petrified of the pain. But within the first minute in, I knew it was more bark than bite. So don’t fuss too much about the pain and concentrate on the goodies – that is the fresh clean shaven sensation you would be experiencing a few seconds from then. Trust me, it is totally worth it.

2. Research Your Product Well Before Buying One

Buying an epilator is definitely an investment. Most epilators in the market are somewhat expensive and buying one needs a good amount of research. Choose a product from this list and run it by your daily requirement and your skin type. Choose the epilator carefully as you are bound to spend the next 3 to 5 years with it as these products are bound to stick around for a while.

3. Epilation Techniques

Place your hand perpendicular to your skin and move in an upward direction, opposite to the growth of the hair in a slow movement so that you give the device the time to carefully pull the hair out. Do not use swift movements as this will not give you good results. Run the device gently so that the massager, if you have any also massages the skin meanwhile. If you have a dry epilator make sure you do not wet your skin in the littlest or use any moisturiser as this prevents hair from being completely removed.

4. Skincare Pre And Post Epilation

Make sure your skin is clean and prepped for epilation. A hot shower will keep your skin and hair warm and supple and make epilation easier. Wet epilators are not as effective as dry epilators, so try to keep your skin dry enough to use an epilator despite the fact that it is either a dry or a wet epilator. After epilation, apply a natural aloe vera gel or coconut or olive oil to soothe the skin and calm the skin down. Do not apply heavy products, sunscreen, soap or lotion for the next couple hours.

5. Choose Your Epilation Time

If you are a beginner, chances are that you might have a rash or redness based on the first hand experience of epilation. GIve yourself enough time and choose a day or two prior to your expected big day for which you were preparing yourself. Redness and rash or clots on the first few times are normal and there is nothing to be alarmed about. The skin will eventually get used to the process. The hair will also be thinner and grow much slower once you start epilating regularly.

FAQs

1. Is epilation safe for the skin?

Yes, Epilation is 100% safe for the skin and you need not worry if you are a beginner. It hurts much less than a regular wax session at your local parlour.

2. Which epilator is better - dry or wet?

From personal and from user experience, dry epilators seem to be the perfect choice as the hair is removed much thoroughly and from the roots so that your skin is truly soft and silky and stays that way for a long time.

3. Should one opt for Cord or Cordless epilator?

It is definitely a personal choice. Corded epilators do as good a job as a cordless one. The ease of use is much higher for a cordless epilator. But Cordless Epilators costs higher and therefore if you wish for an investment, it would be a safer bet to invest on a cordless epilator.

4. Does epilated skin stay hair free for as long as waxed skin?

Absolutely. Epilation is technically the same as waxing but without the harsh process. The hair is removed from the roots in both and therefore both of the processes give similar results. In all fairness, epilators are much painless and hair eventually reduce growing and thins down with a consistent use of an epilator.

5. Are epilators safe to carry?

Epilators are very safe to carry. They usually come in a box or a pouch which can be used to safely put the device away. The buttons are designed in a way to turn them on in an intentional manner so as to avoid injuries. But it is always safe to keep electrical accessories away from kids and pets.
