Unwanted hair removal can often feel too much like hard work. If you rush a shave in your five-minute shower you risk nicks and irritated skin, plus the stubble will be back again in no time. Or if you go to your salon for a wax you're looking at an hour of your life you'll never get back, plus a hefty bill. There are alternative ways of removing unwanted hair, however,and with new developments, the gadgets are quicker than ever and also work to leave your skin smooth and radiant. Here's our pick of three hair-removal tools you should add to your beauty routine to achieve silky smooth, radiant-looking skin at home.
For your face
Many of us have unwanted hair on our upper lip, and perhaps also on the chin, and along the jaw and hairline too. The Braun FaceSpa is a specially designed face epilator. It has an extra slim head for precision, removing hair from the root and leaving you with up to four weeks of hair-free skin. Not only this, but you can switch the epilator head for a cleansing brush, which buffs and exfoliates your skin, removing make-up and impurities and helping your moisturiser to penetrate the skin better. Plus the new 3-in-1 Braun FaceSpa has an additional Skin Vitalising pad, which stimulates your skin and circulation with hundreds of micro-vibrations. Try adding the massage step into your evening skincare routine in combination with your moisturiser for smoother skin after just three treatments.
For your body
Epilating your legs, underarms and bikini line is a great alternative to shaving. If you're new to it, you'll need to remove unwanted hair once a week for the first month, but after that you'll only need to use your epilator once every two to four weeks -which is certainly a great way to save precious time.
The new Braun Silk-epil SkinSpa also comes with a Deep Massage pad, which massages and exfoliates your skin, adapting to your body contours along the way, and boosting your circulation to leave your skin glowing. Use it once a week either in the shower, or after your shower with a cellulite cream to tighten and tone the skin.
For permanent hair removal
There is an option if you want to do away with unwanted hair altogether. IPL technology works to reduce visible hair and over time, if used once a week, it can eradicate it permanently. The Braun Silk-expert IPL√Ç¬†can be used on the lower leg in just eight minutes. It also has a Gentle Mode for more sensitive areas, such as your underarms or bikini line. As well as being more sensitive, you may have noticed the skin around your underarms and bikini line is different, and so the hair is likely different too. The Braun Silk-expert IPL is the only IPL device to have SensoAdaptTM technology*, which continuously reads your skin tone and adapts the intensity of the IPL accordingly, making it safer and more efficient at removing hair from any area of the body.
