How to choose the best epilator for your needs

Everybody knows that hair epilator can make your skin smooth and silky. This unit has rotating disks grasping your hair and yanking it out by the roots. But, nowadays there’s a big variety of epilators and sometimes it’s hard to choose the perfect one. Today our article is about that.

There’re two main types of epilators: the electric epilator and the battery-powered one.

The battery-powered epilator (cordless) is more useful than the electric one because you can use it everywhere. But the advantage of the electric epilator is that you can use it not worrying about spare batteries.

Also, there are different additional types such as epilators with rotating disks, with a spiral of rotating wire, tweezers, etc. but still epilators have more advantages than other methods of hair removal. Their main disadvantage that they cause some pain, that’s why it’s necessary to choose the epilator with the best options.

1. Wet epilators

If the unit has such an option, then it can be submersed in the bath. The main con is that the warm water can reduce the pain. Such type of epilator is perfect for legs, arms and chest. We strongly offer you not to use such method for bikini zone.

2. Dry epilators

The main con of such unit is that it’s more powerful as the wet one and it can remove more hair. Of course, it will be more painful for you. To reduce the time of such a “tortures”, use the high-speed epilator.

3. Hair guard

This option provides plastic caps which are used for the skin protection. Sounds really good, but the researches have shown that this unit is quite ineffective and do not prevent from damages.

4. Men epilators

Men need their own type because their skin is not such as women have. To avoid clogging of the machine and the hair breakage under the skin, they need more powerful units with large openings and big head. Such epilators are not recommended for women, they can cause skin irritations.

5. LED light

This unit is perfect for half-light rooms, because it lit up the skin area and it becomes easier to see the missed hair.

6. Cleaning function

Most units have such function. It provides a brush with cleaning bristles that cleans tweezers. If the epilator doesn’t have such a function, try the other one.

7. Epilators with soft disks

Some epilators have soft disks instead of a metal one. But such devices, promising less painful process lose their grip during some time and the epilation process becomes even longer.

8. Facial epilators

Don’t try to use the ordinary epilator on your face. Facial epilators have small rotating disks and usually they have a LED light function.
