You might prefer to use a shaver for the sensitive areas of your body. In this case, simply clip on the Shaver Head and turn your epilator into a perfect lady shaver.

With the OptiTrim attachment, you can also trim your bikini area.

Silk-épil Xelle - All about epilation

If you are epilating for the first time or if you haven't epilated for a longer period of time, it is a good idea to shave or pre-cut the longer hairs first (with the shaver head and OptiTrim attachement). The ideal length of hair for epilating is between 2 and 5 mm.

  • Make sure that your skin is completely dry and free from any grease or creams.
  • Rub your skin beforehand to lift any short hairs to an upright position and guide the epilator against the hair growth in an upwards direction.
  • If needed you can also change the epilation direction to achieve optimal results.
  • When you get to your knee, stretch it out straight.
  • If you want, you can apply a moisturizer to hydrate the skin after epilating. This will relax the skin and relieve any skin irritation.
  • Some women do experience skin irriation (reddening) after epilating, therefore if you're planning that all-important night out, you may want to epilate the night before.


The Essential Facts

Need to know how fast hair grows? How many hairs the average woman has? The latest answers are all here, in this bite-size, fact-packed guide.

Facts 1:

A woman's leg and underarms combined contain approximately 78,000 hair follicles, and the number of follicles you have a determined by genetics - no new follicles are formed after you're born.

Fact 2:

When hair is removed via apilation new hair growth will have tapered tip making it feel and look finer than older, longer hair.

Fact 3:

On average, women have approximately 16,800 hairs on their legs and 600 hairs under their arms.

Fact 4:

Hair itself is not alive. Once the cells that make up a hair are produced, they die and harden, forming the hair shaft. The shaft is then pushed up through the follicle opening, towards the surface of the skin. Then average rate of movement is 6mm per month.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS ITEM COMES WITH A 2 PIN PLUG, SUITABLE FOR USE IN A BATHROOM ENVIRONMENT.
