  • Using an epilator

    Hi,

    Is there a good method for using an epilator that will make it quicker, easier and less painful?
    I can't face the pain to do my legs let alone anywere else!

  • Make sure you are super dry. I do it before a shower.

    • Curious, how painful is a epilator? How well does it work?

        • I've used an epilator for the past few years... Unfortunately there isnt really a quick, pain free way about it. My advice is this. Take IB profen 45 minutes beforehand. Make sure skin is clean and dry. Also, the pain lessens dramatically each time. Like the first time you pluck your eye brows, you probably teared up and it itched but now you don't feel anything. Same concept. When you first start it will be the worst but then the hair gets thinner, and sometimes doesn't grow back at all. But each time its a bit less painful.

          As for effectiveness, the same as waxing.
