Epilator & Ingrown Hairs

Q: My epilator is causing ingrown hairs. How can I avoid the ingrown hairs? I never realized that epilating could lead to this problem!
 
A: It sounds as though your epilator may be becoming worn. As you know the epilator works by grasping the hairs and pulling them out. If the epilator is worn it may result in stretching and breaking off the hair beneath the skinís surface. This means the hair is more likely to become ingrown as it grows.

      If you can check the tool for signs of wear and consider replacing it. If the item is newer, then try using a hot, moist towel on the area you are going to epilate for 5 minutes before you use the tool. This can help soften the skin and make the hair come up easier.
