How To Epilate Like A Pro

Summer is here, which means showing a bit more skin, and many people choose to remove hair. There are lots of ways to, whether you prefer shaving, waxing, or hair removal cream. Electric epilators are a great option for those who want smooth skin every time. As models are always on the go, we have teamed up with Rowenta to create a special epilator that’s smart and easy to use. A handheld device with rotating tweezers, an epilator removes hair from the root, much like a wax, so with continued use, the hair gets thinner over time. Never used an epilator before? Scroll down for our top tips on how to go fuzz free without the fuss.

Breathe deep

Epilation takes time. In order to get the best results, settle down with a movie or your favourite music in the background and light a scented candle to put yourself in a relaxed frame of mind.

Scrub away

Always exfoliate before you start. The skin naturally sheds cells, creating a dry layer which gets in the way of hair removal and causes ingrown hairs. Use a scrub, a body brush or exfoliating mitt in the shower or bath, and always work in circular motions for best results.

Preparation makes perfect

Everyone is different, but experts suggest setting a large clean towel down on your bed to epilate for a dry epilation. The Rowenta for Elite Model Look Aquaperfect epilator is waterproof, meaning you can use it in the bath or shower, which many people find easiest when epilating for the first time. It allows the pores to open and the hair to come out more easily.

Need for speed

Each of the Rowenta for Elite Model Look epilators are fitted with two speed settings - fast and soft on the large model, and 1 and 2 on the small. First time users should always try out on the slower setting, which is designed to allow you to get used to the technique of epilation.

Direct results

Always epilate in the opposite direction that the hair grows. For legs, work in an upward motion, and for underarms, go down. If not, the hair will be cut off at skin level instead of being removed from the root.
