Removing unwanted hair can often feel too much like hard work. You either have to rush your shave in your hurried morning shower, 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.
However, there are alternative ways of removing unwanted hair. Thanks to new developments, home hair-removal gadgets are quicker than ever. Plus, with exfoliating, cleansing and massaging functions to make your skin feel smooth and look radiant, it’s like having a spa pampering session at home – but much more cost efficient!
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.
Plus the 3-in-1 FaceSpa has a cleansing brush head, which you can attach to buff and exfoliate your skin, removing make-up and impurities to help your moisturiser penetrate the skin better. There is also a ‘skin vitalising’ pad, which stimulates your skin and circulation with hundreds of micro-vibrations. Try adding the cleansing and massage steps into your evening skincare routine 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.
Prep your skin with one of the exfoliation brush attachments, which help prevent ingrown hairs, and then you can epilate in the shower or out, whatever works for you. The Braun Silk-epil 9 SkinSpa also comes with a shaver and trimmer for areas you just want to neaten up, or are too sensitive to epilate. Finish off by using the deep massage pad, which boosts your circulation to leave your skin glowing. You can continue to use the massage function once a week either in the shower, or after your shower with a cellulite cream to help 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 over time and, if used once a week, it can eradicate it permanently. The Braun Silk-expert IPL is quick and easy to use. For example you could zap unwanted hair 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 probably different too. The 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.
