Who doesn’t like relaxing under a warm shower or soaking themselves in a bath? Warm water can be comforting on the skin. Most of us already shave in the shower. It seems only natural that epilators should also be able to be used under water much like shaving. Well, the newest technology with epilators is the ability to use them under water. Studies say that using an epilator under water is less painful because your body releases pain substances that can distract you from the pain. It’s a great tip for anyone just starting to epilate their legs. Wet epilators are easy to clean when rinsed under water.
Are they safe? Wet and dry epilators are designed to be waterproof. For safety reasons, wet and dry epilators can’t be used while plugged in to reduce the risk of shock. If you are going to be epilating a lot, this is something you want to consider. Most wet and dry epilators require at least an hour to charge them. If you are the type of person who wants to use it right away consider getting a different top rated epilator that meets your needs. Wet and dry epilators do not perform well under water. It does take considerably more time than dry epilation. Most of the time, you are going to have to finish up by using the epilator dry.
