As you know, the procedure for hair removal epilator is notSo pleasant, because in fact he pulls out, and does not cut his hair. Therefore, in order to reduce pain, in some models of epilators a special rubber roller or brush is installed, which, thanks to vibration, massage and relax the skin, before removing hair from the area.

Skin Cooling

To date, there are two types of skin cooling during epilation: using a special nozzle and using a glove.

The cooling glove is a conventionalThe glove, on the surface of which is a special compartment, where the gel frozen in the freezer is placed. During epilation, the cooling glove is applied to the skin, before epilation is performed on this site.

As for the cooling nozzle, itIt is made in the form of a container, which is filled with a special liquid. This nozzle is pre-placed in the freezer and after freezing the liquid in it, is put on the epilator, thus cooling the skin area, before epilation.

Braun Epilator


The kit with modern epilators can beIncluded special nozzles. For example, manufacturers often complete epilators with a peeling attachment, which when the hair grows into the skin, helps to peel it and release hair. Another such nozzle is the nozzle for delicate zones, which is intended for epilation in places where the tender skin (armpits and bikini line) is located, in this nozzle there are fewer tweezers for more comfortable and painless epilation. In addition to these attachments, epilators can be completed with other attachments, the presence of which must be specified in each model.

Brush for cleaning

In those models of epilators, in which there is noThe possibility of using foam, then such models can not be washed under a stream of water. Therefore, if you prefer "dry" epilators, they should be accompanied by special brushes with which you can clean the heads and attachments from the hair. But it is better to give preference to models with the possibility of washing the head.


If you like everything to be in place, or you will often transport a depilator, then purchase its model with the presence of a storage case in the kit.
