Skin should be clean and dry before using the hair removal pad. Select an area of skin surface of the size of the pad. Use circular movements and pressure to smooth the surface of your skin. Without lifting the pad, change the direction of the circular movement until the hair is gone. Do not stroke up and down or press too much. If you rub too intensely, the skin gets irritated. Follow up with a mild lotion.
You can wash the mitt in water to maintain its effectiveness.
Never use a hair removal pad on damaged skin. If an irritation occurs, discontinue use.
