The summer months are finally upon us and we could not be happier about it; summer equals warm weather, and for those of us who live in a colder winter climate, it beckons a time when we can go outside and go swimming. Swimming is sometimes a dilemma because of the thought of going out in a swim suit. Some people love it, and are always hanging out in their bathing suit.
But many, both men and women, try to avoid being seen in one. The main reason: the way bodies are viewed in the media. Many of us want to have that perfect body in a bathing suit, and if ours does not look like that, we feel ashamed. Well, we are here to tell you that no matter what you look like in a bikini or swimsuit, you look great.
Today we are going to be concentrating primarily on bikinis and the steps you can take to look great in one. Many women nowadays opt to get a bikini wax at the start, middle, and near the tail end of summer. Shaving is just too irritating especially around the bikini line, but you want to remove all those hairs to have that great look you want. Getting a bikini wax can be something that is painful. A lot of women simply cannot handle the pain because it can be pretty bad.
So, what is the alternative? Epilators. Epilator use is becoming more and more common among women who want the easiest way to get rid of the hair around the bikini area. But is that what they are supposed to be used for? Is it going to work? We hope to answer these questions and more throughout this article.
What is an epilator?
Before we dive into can an epilator be used for the bikini area, what is an epilator? An epilator is an electrical machines that looks a lot like an electric razor. It has the same look and feel, but they do not do the same thing. Rather than have a razor that trims the hair, epilators are equipped with small disc-like tweezers that pull the hair out from the root. Razors and electrical shavers simply cannot do that, but epilators can pull the hair out one by one at the root.
Grabbing a hair from the root ensures that it will not grow back for a longer period of time. This allows the epilator to have the same effect as a waxing, which is why many women are looking into them. They come in all shapes and sizes, each with a variety of features, and all the main brands of shaving manufacturers have their own epilators on the market.
Using an epilator?
So how can you effectively use an epilator? Well first off, if you want to use it around the bikini area, you have to prepare the skin. If the skin around the bikini area is dry and cracked, using an epilator is going to hurt a lot. For the days leading up to using it for the bikini, moisturize the skin and massage it. Make sure it is exfoliating properly; this will ensure it is a lot easier on the skin when it comes time to do it.
Around the bikini area, simply glide the epilator against the grain of hair growth in circular motions. This is going to prevent hurtful pulling. You also want to go as slow as possible, especially around this sensitive area in order to avoid any excess pain.
At the end of the day an epilator can be used in the bikini area; all it takes is doing it carefully and slowly. When you first get your epilator, we recommend using it on your legs or arms first before attempting such a sensitive area, just to get the hang of it.
