However, you should be extra careful when using the device as Rodney points out that epilators can be very painful if misused. “Epilators can’t treat ingrown hairs, either, and they’re not good for sensitive areas. You need to find one that will keep an eye on the health and protection of your skin,” she adds.
When using the device, Rodney recommends pulling the skin taut before running the machine over it and avoiding goose bumps. Make sure to move the device in the direction of hair growth, and don’t press too hard or go through quickly as these two things can cause irritation.
Anyone who can use an epilator can be used on all skin types. However, if you have sensitive skin you should be careful. If you have a serious skin condition you may want to avoid it. First, test on a small area to see if it’s right for you.
