Well, if you can get through waxing, you can get through this. It depends on your pain tolerance and how sensitive your skin is. Some women don’t feel a thing using an epilator. With sensitive skin, you may feel slight discomfort. But there’s a proper way to do it to avoid that. Let’s find out how to use the Philips Satinelle epilator.

Satinelle by Philips

Satinelle by Philips is here since the 1980s. Philips Satinelle epilator is famous for leaving smooth skin with its gentle removal feature. Beginners to this device can choose from a wide range of basic to pro. The most loved Philips Satinelle epilator is:

Philips brings vast innovation to one’s life. Shaving leaves you angry when the hair grows back literally the next day. Philips understood that. Epilation is an alternative to waxing and shaving but with machine modes like different speed settings, sensitive caps, and massage heads. These features allow a unique and comfortable experience. Plus, you can remove hair as you want and whenever you want. Philips Satinelle epilator comes with wet and dry use to suit your choice. The wet option is great for those with sensitive skin as it reduces any discomfort.

Can I Use Philips Epilator on Pubic Hair?

Philips made the epilator to help smooth different parts of your body. So, yes, you can see the Philips Satinelle epilator on pubic hair. But, here is what you must know:

  • Buying the right epilator is the most important. You have to figure out which area you need it for most. Each of Philips epilators models have different setting and design to cater to multiple areas. If you want precision and a comfortable process, choose an epilator that has a bikini setting.
  • The pubic area is more sensitive so using an epilator may cause discomfort. If you cannot handle any pain and are scared, you can start with your arms or legs first. This will allow you to get comfortable with the process.
  • When using an epilator on pubic area, ensure you stretch your skin properly. Just as in waxing and shaving, you have to hold your skin a little to get the hair out in one flow.
  • In case your hair is too long, you should trim it before you begin epilation.

The Next Step

Hold the shaver and begin! If you have full growth, you don’t need to hold your skin. For a 5 o’clock shadow or a clean shave, you may want to use your other hand to stretch the skin a little.

Whether it’s your face or any other body part, the next point is for all. Notice the direction of your hair growth. Shave in the direction your hair is growing to avoid uneven regrowth, burns, and ingrown hair. Once you figure out the direction of your hair, begin with light pressure and shave in short, gentle strokes. If you press too hard on the shaver, it could mess up the length and give you an uneven look. Plus, it could also cause irritation. And if you try to shave one side in one stroke, it could cause irritation. This is why it is best to be gentle and to go one stroke at a time for that perfect length and smooth look.

That covers the basics for if you’re new to shaving – easy right? Now you know how to use shaver machine.

Once done, rinse your face and the shaver to remove hair from it. Pat some after shave and you’re good to go.
