Well, after having an epilator for about 6 months now, I have finally discovered the optimum angle to which to use the epilator.
First of all, I assume you know how to use one and which way to move it against the hair. (Usually against the grain, just like shaving.) But anyway…I found that the optimum angle is at a slight obtuse angle from the skin. In other words bend it back against the direction of movement. Not forward. Why this is is a bit technical.
OK, it seems that the tweezers on the roller are at an optimum angle and closure level.
I’ve tried several different angles, straight up and down, and in an accute angle (forward), and it just didn’t grab the hairs good. I always had a hard time doing my arms, but doing it this way (backwards) worked a lot better.
