Epilation is becoming more and more popular amongst both ladies and gentlemen. That’s exciting since these devices have so much to offer and yet there is a lot of space for improvements. It’s intriguing to see what future holds for all of those interested in epilation. However, let’s talk about you now! If you’re here, you’re probably one of those brave people who would like to epilate down there! I‘ll try to give you some of the better tips on how to epilate bikini area to achieve wanted results.
How to Epilate Bikini Area Comfortably
It’s good to know what to do before you even start epilating bikini line. Not knowing may sometimes hurt you while knowing is most likely to help you!
For Beginners – Wax First
Believe it or not but most of the people who switch straight from shaving to epilation find epilating more painful than those who switch from waxing to it. Why so? The answer is quite simple and perfectly makes sense. First of all, when you‘re waxing you pull out the hair from the root. On the other hand, when you‘re shaving your hair follicle stays untouched. Therefore, your hair grows back as thick as they were. If you wax at least a few times before epilating your bikini line, your hair will grow back fairer and thinner.
Second of all, waxing is more painful than shaving. Whenever you use wax to remove hair, your body adjusts to pain and it even subsides after a while. That becomes extremely useful when you start epilating and even more handy once you start epilating bikini area. All in all, if you wax first and then epilate you‘re most likely to experience less pain.

Trim Your Pubic Hair
Whenever you‘re using an epilator at home, you should make sure that your hair is of a good length. Why? Epilators tend to cut long hair rather than pulling them out and sometimes struggle to grip on the shortest hair. Keep them at around 4-6 mm and you should be fine.
Exfoliate Even Down There
We all know how important exfoliation and skin cleansing is. However, how often do you exfoliate down there? For some reason, we tend to forget the importance of taking care of the pubic area. I myself certainly forget that. There are quite a few ways on how you could exfoliate down there. You can always follow the procedures you would follow if you were doing that to any part of your body. Here are a few example steps:
- Wash your skin
- Dry it out
- Use exfoliator(either mechanical or chemical)
- Wash your skin with cold water
- Dry it out
Choose Where to Epilate
It‘s important to choose where you‘d like to epilate. Whether it‘s shower or just your bathroom floor. Most importantly the place that you choose needs to be comfortable for you and offer a relaxing atmosphere. In addition to that, there are quite a few Wet&Dry epilators that are currently in the market. What these kinds of epilators offer is the ability to epilate in the shower or just in your bathtub. The idea behind the design is that the procedure becomes less painful and much more enjoyable. That might exactly what you need in order to epilate your pubic hair. However, you‘re always more than welcome to epilate in a dry environment as it offers its perks. Some of the women say that epilating like that results in less ingrown hair. After all, it depends on each individual‘s body.
Make Sure to Taunt Skin
Taunting skin is another important step in a hair removal procedure. Making sure that your skin is taunted contributes towards better grip on hair and more efficient hair removal. The idea is that your epilator will not have a chance to catch your skin and cause unnecessary pain. Overall, that‘s what we‘re aiming for. Isn‘t it?

Keep a 90 Degree Angle
Keep your epilator at a right angle and you‘ll be fine. Some people like to play with their epilators thinking that that will help them to get most out of it. That‘s a big no-no!
Take it Slow or Take it Fast
Choosing whether you‘ll take it slow or do it the other way around and take it fast depends solely on you. However, I can give you a few tips for that. If you‘re only starting with epilation down there, it‘s probably safer to start slow and take your time. You may want to use an epilator with a smaller head or get a sensitive part attachment. That will give you time to test your limits and see what works better for you. On the other hand, if you‘re experienced you might as well just want to do it as fast as possible and forget the procedure for another month. In this situation, it would be smart to choose an epilator with a wider head, a good massaging system, and fast tweezers. It will be finished before you‘ll know it!

First Time? Start Small
If it‘s your first time, I want to most sincerely advise you to take it very slowly. Epilate a small patch of hair each day for two weeks. You‘ll notice that the procedure will become less and less painful each time you epilate a new patch of hair. It‘s a good way to start since your body will gradually adjust and endure the pain so much better. After a few full bikini sessions, your skin will be sweet, shiny and simply beautiful. Most importantly, epilating bikini line won‘t be scary.
Apply Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is very well known for its moisturizing and cleansing features. It contains choline, vitamin K, and E. The latter is a good antioxidant and therefore reduces inflammation that could be caused by hair removal. Therefore, coconut oil soothes skin and relaxes it. That’s something everyone needs after having a long epilating session and especially when it’s bikini line that we’re talking about. In addition to that, you’ll smell amazing!
