How to use hair removal tools?

There are certain points to keep in mind while using a hair removing device. Always use hair removing tools on clear skin and end the session with a moisturizer. Always move the device in the direction of hair growth to pull hair out of the roots.

Epilator and trimmers- Exfoliate your skin before using an epilator or trimmer to prevent ingrown hair. Hold the epilator at a 90-degree angle loosely against your skin. Stretch your skin and move the epilator in the direction of hair growth. Moving the epilator against the hair growth will not remove the hair from the roots. Always clean the epilator after every use.

For IPL devices, Nazima recommends shaving the area first to remove hair. Select the right intensity for your skin and hair type. It’s always advisable to start with low intensity and then build up she says. Keep moving the device over your skin as the device keeps flashing.

However, she suggests that it is best to read the instructions manual for the hair removal tool you select. As the technology, settings, and usage of each tool is different.
