    Because hair removal doesn’t have to be a pain…

    Yes, that time of year has rolled around again and let’s face it, swapping those thick opaques for dare-to-bare legs can often fill us with a looming sense of dread. Why? As if we have to ask…

    The promise of warmer weather means that we naturally become a little bit more astute when it comes to the tricky subject of hair removal. Whether it’s getting bikini-prepped ahead of that luxe beach holiday, or making the absolute most out of your new-season wardrobe (sans tights), achieving silky smooth skin is right at the top of our summer to-do list.

    And while we know that it’s all too easy to reach for the razor (hello angry, irritated skin), most of us look for more effective hair removal solutions that’ll ensure a longer, stubble-free look to flaunt all summer long. Cue Braun’s Silk-épil 5 Extra Soft Wet & Dry Epilator, £59 – the beauty tool set to revolutionise your summer-prep routine.

    Ideal for beginners, this clever epilator features a unique beginners cap which shaves — using Gillette Venus blades — and epilates in one gentle stroke, to help you get used to the epilation sensation while guaranteeing a smooth finish. The Wet & Dry technology also means you can use the epilator in the shower with your favourite shower gels and products for a softer and less painful experience.

    Also, whereas waxing can be costly and time-consuming, epilating is a far more effective and convenient way of keeping stubble at bay. Not only do Braun epilators remove hairs 4x shorter than wax, but having the choice to remove hair when and where you want (and from the comfort of your own home) means no more waiting for that annoying regrowth to occur.

    Add to that a high frequency massage system, gentle tweezing discs and Micro-grip technology — to remove hair without pulling the skin — and you’ll have discovered a hair removal routine you can rely on for years to come.

    The leading brand in epilators, Braun also offers a wide range of other products and beauty additions, such as body exfoliators, to guarantee the most effective performance. Plus, results mean that you can stay stubble-free for up to four weeks after each epilation. And that’s just good beauty maths, right?
