Facial Hair Removal #1

Hello!! So I have thought about doing a few posts on getting rid of facial hair. I feel that for women it seems a bit of a taboo/embarrassing thing to admit that you have facial hair which I think is just wrong. Not only men have hair on their face. Everybody has hair, some more than others, and you shouldn't be made to feel ugly/embarrassed/not normal just because you do.

That aside I am going to talk about Epilators! To me this is the best and most painful way to remove facial hair. It's basically like a machine with little needles which rotate and grip the hairs on your face and essentially tweeze them out.  Unlike shaving, the hair is gripped from the root and you get a more clean longer lasting hair free face!

 To use it I just move it in up and own motions on my face. Unfortunately it really hurts. It's especially painful if your doing your upper lip area but its one of those things you can build up tolerance too over time. If I were to describe how it feels I'd say its like sharp little tingles over my face. Okay - I know I'm not really selling this but I have to be honest!

The Epilator I use is the Braun Silk Epilator which I bought nearly 5 years ago for 50 quid at Boots. It's pricey but 5 years on I still have it! Like a lot of Epilators mine came with different heads (you clip these to the top) to make it easier for you to do specific parts of your face. For example you could use heads 1 and 4 for your upper lip whereas 2 and 3 are better for doing your forehead/sides of your face.

It is important to exfoliate and moisturize afterwards as your skin may feel a little dry. This method normally keeps me hair free for around 7 - 10 days so it's quite effective.

I would love to hear about your favourite hair removal methods. Please share your experiences! =)
