First we began with the basic question that revolved around every women’s mind, Are Epilators Worth Your Investment? Then we showed you How To Get Best Results From Epilators because most of the times it’s not the product’s fault, it’s how you can use a little tip n trick to make your way to the better.
After having talked about epilators, there was still one question that was being asked and not answered properly.
To be honest, when I set my foot to research a little on the internet about what people wanted to know about using epilators on the face, the answers came from most people who had never tried it and recommended that it never be tried.
Most internet answers will tell you that you should “NOT” use epilators on the face because it hurts like hell, it’s not safe and that it would give disastrous results such as rashes, patches or cuts and some will also say that will increase ingrown hair or make your facial hair more thicker.
Today we are going to talk about this question in detail.
Can You Use Epilators On Your Face?
Yes, you can use epilators on your face but it depends on various few factors.
a. Your epilator must be skin friendly.
Now what the hell do we mean by that? You see there are many brands of epilators going around in the market. Each has got different metal plates on the heads.
These metal plates decide weather you can use them on face or not. If the metal plates are leveled in, they are perfectly safe. But if they are leveled above or separate then they may cut your face. Here is the image showing you the difference :
b. Your skin must be tolerant to facial hair removing stuff .
If you have been waxing, threading or tweezing your facial hair and having no skin problems such as rashes, burns or patches then your skin is pretty much tolerant to pains and hair removing. Thus it is safe for you to use epilator.
But if you are going to try epilating your face for the first time, use the epilator on a very small section of your face and wait till a few hours to see the reaction. If your skin looks fine you are good to go.
c. Your facial hair type.
If your facial hair are very thick or longer than normal then I highly recommend that you do not use epilator as it definitely will hurt hell a lot. Try taking a few threading or waxing sessions and then when your facial hair are still thin and small, you can use epilator.
You can use epilator on your face soon as your facial hair are the length that get easily grabbed by your epilator. It is easy and painless at this stage. If the hair length increases, it gets difficult and painful.
So there you go.
You can use epilators on your face.
If you are still not sure if your epilator is the right epilator for your face, throw us a comment, a link to your epilator image perhaps and we will let you know if it’s safe to use.
