Is Epilating Worth the Pain and Money?

Epilation is a process in which unwanted hair is removed from the body. The main reason for choosing epilation over shaving is that with epilation the hair is removed from the root, whereas during shaving they are only cut. Removing the hair from the root allows your skin to stay gentle for a longer period of time. When the hair starts growing after a few weeks they are usually smooth and less visible. With regular usage the hair grows even slower, so your skin will be soft for a longer period of time.

If you decide to remove your hair with epilator you would be able to save a lot of money and time. For a successful epilation all you need to do is buy a good epilator. Since this is a one-time investment it is good if you choose the best epiliators out there. Imagine how much money you will save by not having to go to the beauty salon?! No money for gas, or treatments. Moreover, you don’t need to wait for the next available appointment. You can use the epilator whenever you want in the comfort of your home.

And as far as the pain goes, let’s be honest! Waxing, epilation and every other process that removes the hair completely rather than just making them shorter is going to hurt. But this is not a real pain. It’s more discomfort. If you are using the epilator for the first time you have to check and see how your skin reacts to it. Make sure you choose a less visible part of your body and test to see if it’s going to irritate your skin. If your skin doesn’t become reddish after a few minutes, then you have passed the test and you can use the epilator without any issues. In time the discomfort you feel will reduce and possible disappear. Luckily we have created a guide on how to make the process hurt less.

There are several things you can do to make the epilation less stressful for your skin. First you should take a shower with warm water that will relax your skin and open your pores. If the hair is longer you might have to cover the same area twice, as you might not be able to completely remove it with the first attempt. Therefore you should cut the hair at a certain length, as most epilators can remove even the shortest hair. You should never epilate areas of your skin which are irritated or areas where you have open wounds. You have to wait for them to completely heal and then epilate that area. If you are a woman then you need to avoid epilating your body in “that” time of the month, as you will be more sensitive hence you can feel more pain.

In conclusion, epilation, especially the one done by you is definitely something that is worth your time and pain. You will have to buy the epilator only once and be able to use it every month in order to have smooth and gentle skin.
