Get Baby-Soft Skin: How To Use A Trimmer To Have The Smoothest Shave Of Your Life

Even our usual, weekly activities have changed completely.

And if you are someone who hasn’t stepped out in months (you go, girl!), then you must read about these different variants of trimmers that’ll make you forget about your loyal parlour wali didi and take matters into your own hands.

Ladies, its time to bid adieu to painful waxing sessions and enjoy a smooth shave with trimmers. Now, there is an array of trimmers available in the market that you can use. Each type has a specific function. And if you are wondering which one you need or just generally wondering how to use a trimmer, then keep reading.

How To Use A Tummy Trimmer

I don’t know about you guys but I scream (yes, scream!) when I’m getting my stomach and back waxed, because it hurts so much! Thankfully, I discovered this handy machine (yes, trimmers for women!) and I cannot even tell you how happy I am!

It literally takes about 15 minutes for me to quickly remove hair from my tummy. And if you are wondering how to use a tummy trimmer, then we’ve got you.

  • Step into the shower and lather your tummy area with a shower gel.
  • Turn on your trimmer and let’s start trimming!
  • Stretch your tummy from an upward direction and start trimming from the same direction as your hair growth. You’ll notice how easily the trimmer glides onto your tummy.
  • Once done completely, wash it off using water. Make sure you apply a body lotion once done!

How To Use An Eyebrow And Upper Lip Trimmer

Your eyebrows introduce you before you speak! And having great brows is a superpower in itself. So that is why, I tried waxing my brows when the lockdown happened and boy oh boy, why did I do that? The entire experience was sticky, painful and I completely destroyed my much-preserved arched shape. Thankfully with a few drops of olive oil every night, my brows were thriving. And if you want your brows to be on-fleek or remove a few extra hairs, then you need an eyebrow trimmer in your life.

Wondering how to use an eyebrow trimmer? It’s easy:

  • Using a cotton pad, clean your brows before you begin.
  • Now, stretch one of your brows and start trimming from the opposite side of the hair growth. Do it very slowly so that you do not mess up the shape.
  • You can also outline your brows using an eyebrow pencil so that you know what needs to be done. Just make sure after a few trims, you stand back and take a good look to ensure you’re not making a mistake.

Wondering how to use a trimmer for upper lips? Use your eyebrow trimmer only as it’s so handy and will totally help you to get rid of the stache!

How To Use A Bikini Trimmer

Using a bikini trimmer can be trickier than solving a maths equation. First of all, the bikini aka the pubic area is really sensitive and just one cut can make you moan out loud--and not in a good way! But once you get the hang of it, you’ll realise that it is so easy to do and so much better than a bikini wax!

Here’s how to use a bikini trimmer:

  • Wash and clean your area down under with water.
  • Now using the bikini trimmer, start shaving the outgrowth (the hair that’s sitting on top of your vayjay!).
  • Make sure you stretch your skin in an upward manner for a close, clean shave.
  • Next, let’s go more to the south--spread your vagina and start trimming from side to side. Do not worry if you don’t know how to use trimmers for pubic hair as it’s not really rocket science. If you are too scared of cutting, please switch off the trimmer and try another day.
  • And once you do decide to go forward, repeat all the same steps. Just make sure you stretch the skin real good and shave really slowly, to avoid any cuts!

How To Use A Nose Trimmer

Everyone has nose hair and it's nothing to feel ashamed about. But yes, if unkempt, they can look pretty weird. But don’t you worry, as there's trimmer just for that.

Using a trimmer for the nose is not a new trend but people are finally understanding how easy to use it actually is!

Here’s how to use a nose trimmer:

  • Firstly, make sure you are sitting in a comfortable setting. Spread out a paper to collect the hair and let’s begin!
  • Turn on the nose trimmer and put it inside your nose. Go on really slow when you do it as all it takes is a second to make that painful cut!
  • Keep rotating the trimmer for a nice shave and that’s it.

How To Use A Trimmer On Face

Have you tried dermaplanning? It is when a certified skin specialist or a dermatologist used a super sharp face tool to remove the dead skin off your face. It also removes dirt, peach fuzz and makes your skin smoother to touch and feel. It is also an affordable and safe way to get rid of all the excess hair from your face in no time.

There are SO many benefits of dermaplannnig that you have to give this #DermatologistApproved method a try. And you can use a face trimmer for that!

Here’s how you can use a trimmer on your face:

  • Wash your face using a mild cleanser.
  • Next, holding your skin’s taut, start shaving your face, very slowly from top to bottom.
  • The idea is not to irritate the skin and shave from the opposite side of the hair’s growth.

How To Use A Trimmer For Underarms

Your friends did not cancel Goa plans (where can I find such friends?) and you're heading for a beach vacay? Time to shave off that underarm hair in no time! Shaving your underarms is actually better for you because getting them waxed constantly can make your skin become a little loose as you start to get older. With that being said, here’s how to use a trimmer for underarms:

  • Wash the area with soap and put your arm over your head so that the skin is stretched properly and you don’t cut yourself.
  • Start using your trimmer from top to bottom.
  • Just ensure you either do it in the washroom or over newspaper spread as we wouldn’t want the hair to get everywhere, right?

FAQs About How To Use Trimmer For Ladies

By now I bet you must be adding all these amazing trimmers for women to your cart, right? And you may still have a few questions too! Well, we’re happy to help!

Yes and no! Epilators are perfect for every woman on the go who needs to quickly remove hair from a particular area. The difference between an epilator and a trimmer is that epilators pluck out your hair from the roots whereas a trimmer will only trim the hair.

But do not use an epilator on sensitive areas as you can develop rashes, skin inflammation and even painful ingrowths! Epilators are best to use either on your legs or arms.
