Having smooth hairless skin during the summer is something we all strive for. However, not all of us have the time to go to the salon for a wax during our holidays. Plucking takes too much time and shaving sometimes leads to grazes and ingrown hair throughout the holidays.  Thankfully, there’s an answer to all our hairy problems in the form of Braun Silk Epil 9 SkinSpa Epilator!

This waterproof wet and dry epilator removes even the shortest hairs that wax cannot catch for up to 4 weeks of long lasting, salon-smooth skin. It is lightweight and ergonomically shaped, which makes it easy to move around the natural shape and contour of your body. You can even use it at odd angles to reach all places and with its pivoting head, the tweezers can pick up as many hairs as possible.

But that’s not all it does. Braun Silk Epil 9 SkinSpa also comes with a deep exfoliation brush to reduce ingrown hair with an exfoliation performance that is 6x more effective than a manual scrub alone. The gentle exfoliation brush visibly refines your skin for an irresistibly smooth and silky feeling. Imagine having a full body scrub without all the mess in the shower. We all know by now that the best way to get and maintain a nice, even tan is by exfoliating your skin.

The shaving head is great for removing hair even in the most sensitive zones, especially around the bikini line. What we truly love the most is the deep massage pad for significantly better blood circulation and visibly improved skin appearance. Use this together with your favourite body lotion, body oil or skin firming cream for even better beach body results.

How to Get the Best Results with an Epilator?

Make sure you have a fully charged battery

Epilators use a lot of power, and the Silk Epil 9 takes an hour to charge. A fully charged battery will give you continuous usage for up to 40 minutes.

Epilate in the evening

Most people will develop small, red bumps on their skin for 30 minutes up to two hours after epilating. Epilating in the evening will ensure that you don’t walk around the poolside or to the beach with red bumps on your arms and legs during the day.

Always start on the lowest setting

Braun Silk Epil 9 SkinSpa comes with two settings. Use the lower and slower to make epilating less painful, especially if it is your first time epilating. Lowest settings are better for sensitive areas such as the bikini line and underarms while higher speeds are better for large areas such as arms and legs.

Keep the skin tight and taut

The tweezers have an easier time catching and pulling out the hair from taut skin.

Use the epilator at a 90-degree angle

This angle makes it easier for the epilator to pluck the hairs. It should be perpendicular to your skin.

Go Against the Grain

The most effective way to use an epilator is  to go against the direction of where your hair is growing. Use Braun’s built-in light to see the direction of hair growth.

Don’t press against your skin

Simply glide the epilator gently across your skin. Don’t press it down against your skin because there is a chance that the tweezers will pinch your skin.
