Does epilating face reduce hair growth?
Much like from waxing, regular use of an epilator can actually reduce or even completely stop hair growth in that area. By waxing or epilating, you are pulling the hair out of the follicle which can in turn damage the follicle, resulting in the inability of the hair to grow back.
How often should you Epilate your face?
Beginners would do well to epilate once a fortnight. Doing it frequently has two benefits: your pain threshold increases (as shorter hair causes less pain plus your skin gets used to the ‘tugging’) and your overall hair growth reduces over time. Later you might need to do it only once a month.
Is epilating bad for skin?
You can use an epilator on your face, but as the skin on the face is incredibly sensitive it may cause irritation. Not to mention the pain is quite intense. But, if you take all the right steps and remember to pull the skin taut, you can as well achieve a smooth hairless finish on your face.
Does epilation reduce Strawberry legs?

Does epilation reduce ingrown hairs?
Do epilators cause ingrown hairs? Those pesky ingrown hairs are caused by dead skin cells that force the hair to curl beneath the skin and grow in the wrong direction. Exfoliation gets rid of the dead skin cells and frees the hair. Epilating shouldn’t cause ingrown hairs so long as your exfoliate beforehand.
Why do I get pimples after epilating?
The pimples are caused when bacteria enter the empty hair follicle and cause an infection. After epilation, stay away from infection-causing activities like swimming, steaming in the sauna or even excessive sweating.
Should I moisturize after epilating?
The golden rule is moisturise AFTER epilating not before. Apply a nourishing body lotion for the best, skin smoothing results and get set to wake up the following morning with super-soft, silky skin.
Is it better to Epilate wet or dry?
