Evenings are the right time for epilation; you’re more relaxed, and any minor bumps will be gone by the morning. The preparation includes exfoliation in a warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed and helps to reduce those dreaded in-grown hairs. Use an exfoliation scrub or mitt, or we recommend our Braun Silk Epil SkinSpa exfoliating brush for 4x better results than a manual peeling.
When epilating, hold your epilator so that it feels natural. Hold at a 90 degree angle to your legs and run the epilator in an upward motion, against the direction of hair growth. There’s no need to press down too hard, simply touch the epilator lightly on the skin. Braun Silk Epil’s cooling glove and massaging rollers help to minimise discomfort, and with regular use, epilation becomes virtually painless.
The golden rule is to moisturise after epilation, not before. Apply body lotion for better results and get set for soft, silky skin in the morning.
