Threading Facial Hair
Threading your way through the maze of home facial hair removal methods.
Shave, pluck, wax, laser, bleach, sugar, cream or thread – they’re all ways to get rid of unwanted facial hair at home. Of them all, threading is the simplest and most effective solution.
This article is about the ancient method of threading. It’s believed that threading originated somewhere along the popular trading routes of the East as many as 6,000 years ago. In Turkey, Egypt and India, for example, the technique is still commonly practiced today. In Iran, for instance, threading’s become a ceremonial requirement for brides-to-be while threading the eyebrows of a young girl in Persia can signal her coming of age.
Threading works by pulling a cotton thread along unwanted hair in a twisting motion. This traps the hair and lifts it right out of the follicle. Today, threading has become all the rage in the West. You’ll find threading specialists in salons all along fashionable city streets from New York to London and now on most of Britain’s high streets too.
The reasons are simple: threading’s a safe, simple and effective way to remove the problem of unsightly or unwanted facial hair, even from the most sensitive skin. It’s quick, relatively painless and leaves skin soft, smooth and young looking. Threading’s hygienic and environmentally friendly too. Also, because it pulls hairs out from the hair root, removing the entire hair follicle, hair removal can last up to six weeks and even become permanent over time, stemming hair growth altogether.
For eyebrows shaping, threading provides a more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is more gentle on the skin. It can be painful as several hairs are removed at once, however this can be minimised if it is done professionally by visiting a salon.
Threading’s also a solution that some medical health conditions require when treatments like laser, waxing or shaving could be harmful. Dermatologists frequently advise diabetics and acne sufferers, for example, to use only threading for facial hair removal.
Unwanted Chin and Lip Hair Removal
Best of all, threading is no longer restricted to professional use exclusively. It can now be done easily, safely and quickly, by you, in the comfort of your own home, with the amazing new Epicare® wand, first choice of women all over the world. It’s by far the easiest, most affordable and safest method of facial hair removal on the market today and can be done in a matter of minutes. At last you can put an end to the embarrassment and distress of fine, unsightly upper lip hairs, or the sharp, black chin hairs that spring up seemingly overnight. You can use Epicare® anywhere you like, while watching Strictly or your favourite soap on TV.
Really, the DIY Epicare® wand really does work, it is amazing and incredibly easy to use.
Designed for use on the face including upper lip, cheeks and chin, the wand consists, in essence, of a long, thin spring with coils precisely measured to catch hair cleanly and pull it from the root. The spring is made of high quality steel with an antibacterial and hypoallergenic coating. This is a great addition for anyone whose skin breaks out after using other depilation methods that let oils and bacteria into the follicle.
To use, you just bend, twist and roll the spring along wherever hair is to be removed. This requires no more than your fingers and a mirror. The coil is held by robust, small high-grade plastic handles and bent upwards into an ‘inverted U’ shape. You place this against clean skin area and roll the handles between your fingers and thumbs to extract both the coarse and fine hairs. The process is considerably less painful than waxing and you’ll become less sensitive to the feeling after each session.
Epicare® effectively removes both thick and thin hairs. Don’t worry if you leave some stragglers left on your first go, you can safely redo the area straight away.
Although Epicare®may not remove the very finest hairs, it leaves a very natural look to the face because you aren’t left with large patches of skin that are unnaturally completely free of hair.
We regret that Epicare® can’t be used to shape eyebrows. It isn’t precise enough to catch individual hairs and you might accidentally catch an eyelash. However it’s brilliant for upper lips, your chin and larger areas of your face and neck. (Very occasionally you might also use the wand on odd patches of hair on your chest, stomach or legs.)
You can buy Epicare® in any of eight different coloured handles, one to match any fashion, feeling or personality. Its shape is discreet enough to leave it on show without embarrassment. Cleaning the wand is simple – it can be bent, then blown or shaken to remove hair from the coil. You can wipe it with alcohol sanitiser to ensure it stays germ and oil free.
You can check out other methods of removing troublesome facial hair, many products can produce real problems – waxing especially. Read the instructions with care, the wax can be heated up too much and burn, resulting in extreme pain and scabby red skin. The thin skin around the eyes can easily become irritated from waxing, even if other areas aren’t affected. It can also cause skin to sag over time causing premature wrinkles. You also have to wait for the hair to grow to a certain length before having wax applied again, i.e. a moustache ‘growing out’ phase. No such difficulties with Epicare®.
Further ways include shaving, which can lead to rough regrowth with ugly blunt ends. Bleaching that can leave you with chemical burns from the strong bleaching agents. Plucking using tweezers is painful and feels like it takes forever. Laser treatment is mega expensive and isn’t 100% reliable. Epicare®, on the other hand, is a guaranteed hair removal method, widely reviewed and enthusiastically recommended by skin care experts, that leaves you with the self-confidence to face anyone and anything. At last you have the beautiful soft skin you’ve always wanted and the lovely feminine look that’s so admired.
Epicare® stands above any other methods of hair removal. Compared with expensive salon visits involving waxing or plucking it represents amazing value for money. Each spring in the wand lasts at least six to 10 months, sometimes as long as one year, meaning you stand to save huge amounts when Epicare® is weighed against virtually any other option.
