My Secret To Smooth Silky Skin
Throughout my career as a makeup artist I’ve met with many women and their main concerns have been how do I hide these blemishes on my legs? Or how can I make my skin look silky smooth for my event tonight?
What I don’t get is how we all talk about the importance of caring for our skin, but in reality most women are concerned with covering up blemishes and not providing our skin with the right care it needs. After all let’s not forget that getting smooth skin throughout should be our main priority for looking and feeling confident.
There are lots of different methods of hair removal and were all familiar with waxing, laser, IPL, shaving but today, I want to deep dive into epilation and what the benefits are of epilating with not just any epilator but Silk-épil 9 from Braun. Like any method of hair removal, epilation takes some getting used to but once you have the hang of it, it’s easy as one, two click.
Braun’s Silk-épil 9 has a micro – grip technology that pulls out the tiniest of hairs even the flat ones leaving you with silky smooth legs.
It’s super easy to use, and it’s quick! You can use it in the shower if you’re short on time or use it dry – whatever works for you.
Best of all – the Silk épil 9 comes with the most amazing exfoliation brush, with new high performance bristles that removes more dead skin thanks to the triangular shape, and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it!!
Here’s my four easy steps to achieve silky smooth skin for all you newbies.
Choose The right epilation Method For You
This first step mainly depends on usage habits. For most women it is more convenient to combine epilation with bath time, and a wet or foam version could work perfectly for them. There are others who may find the dry version simpler to use and can easily find the time and privacy to use their dry epilator frequently. Go for something that’s suitable and practical for your lifestyle and grooming habits. And lucky for you Silk-épil 9 has provided you with both choices.

I cannot emphasize this enough, proper exfoliation is a critical step to prevent nasty ingrown hair. Exfoliation is also important before applying any skin products or when rejuvenating winter-weary skin. You can always rely on the exfoliation brush from Silk-épil 9 and here is how to do it.
- Replace the head of the epilator with the brush.
- Wet the area you want to exfoliate
- Apply your cleanser to your exfoliation brush
- With one round motion of the brush you’re able to reach even the hardest areas of your body.
Get Started On Epilating
Now that you’re fully exfoliated it’s time to start the epilation journey.
- Change the head of the Silk-épil 9 to the epilator head.
- Glide it in the opposite direction of hair growth using circular motion to remove even the shortest hairs while holding theepilator right at 90 degrees.
- Stretch your skinwith other hand especially when you are doing your thighs, knees and calves. Fold your arm upwards, to do the elbows and there you go I bet you didn’t know it could remove this much hair!

Apply moisturizer directly after epilation
Don’t panic if your skin gets red after epilation, it’s totally normal. And little moisturizer will go a long way to soothe down the skin and leaving you feeling with smooth silky skin.
Benefits Of Epilation
With the long lasting results you will see from epilation, you will never worry about these small tiny hairs stopping you from going out and feeling confident wherever you go.
