Body waxing and laser hair removal are convenient ways to remove body hair, but these tend to be quite pricy for how long their results last. Wouldn't it be great to have a DIY option that’s just as effective? Well, the good news is folks have been discovering the benefits of using an epilator to efficiently remove unwanted body hair at home. Plus, there are a lot of high-quality options that are available in Singapore.
Will this be the answer to your body hair-removal problems?
What is an epilator?
An epilator is an adjustable hair removal device that works in a similar manner to waxing. It removes the hair from the root by grasping multiple hairs and pulling them out in one go. It can be electric or spring-type, and can also come with various attachments such as for exfoliating or a smaller head for hard-to-reach areas. Epilating can be painful for some people, but this can be avoided by reducing the speed of the device.
