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!
