Epilator

Epilator

Epilators remove the hair from the root. Just like waxing, it lasts longer than other methods. The equipment can be expensive and some women find their skin not as smooth as it could be with other methods. It can be painful and irritate your skin, especially on sensitive areas like underarms or bikini. Also, it might not remove very short hair: with some epilators, you have to wait for it to grow a little before using your epilator. So, it’s not a convenient solution when the sun is back and you want to wear your beautiful dress or your new swimsuit!

But the smell can be really disturbing. Also it takes more time than just shaving, and the chemicals can cause irritation on sensitive skins.

How to shave my bikini area?

How to shave my bikini area?

Before shaving, you need to exfoliate your skin with a glove or gel to remove any dead cells and avoid in-growing hairs. Then, expose hair to warm water for few minutes. This softens the hair making it easier to remove. After that, apply shaving gel and shave with your Bic® Soleil® razor especially designed for women in the direction of hair growth. Make sure you hold your skin taut to prevent red razor bumps and itches. The final touches: apply a soothing moisturiser to the area.

What is the best after-shave procedure to follow?

Remember that your skin is at its most sensitive immediately after the shave, so dry your skin by gently ‘patting’ it with a soft towel. Rubbing will cause friction and will make the area hot and more sensitive. 

Shaving removes the dead cells on the top of your skin. Apply an after shave balm or an alcohol-free moisturising cream, to soothe and protect the skin.

I have dry skin, what can I do to prepare it before shaving?

Make sure you prepare your skin with a specially formulated shaving cream or gel. With a shaving gel, the shaver glides more easily over your skin, thus avoiding skin irritations. Use gel rather than normal soap. It’s more gentle for your skin. Spread the gel and leave it two minutes on your skin before shaving.

Should I wash before shaving?

Should I wash before shaving?

Before shaving any part of your body, it’s better to have perfectly clean skin. This helps reducing infections or bumps. Apply hot water, or shave during or after a shower.

Warm humidity increases skin elasticity and softens hair making them easier to shave. This way, you also prolong the life of your blades.
