Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush

If you’re an eyebrow lover, like myself, then this product is your must-have. I’ve been in love with cleaning & shaping my eyebrows since I was a teenager. I got so good at it that my relatives and friends would cue in line for me to get theirs done. I went through all traditional ways, threads and tweezers. Never did I think that there will be another, much better, alternative.

Braun came up with an elegant invention that will clean your sensitive facial areas with the most precision. The extra slim head captures the finest hairs down to 0,02 mm. It is also considerably faster and more thorough than manual tweezers. However, it is not to be used for shaping your eyebrows.

The Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush also strikes on what most of us women care about the most: cleaning our faces. Best advise is to make this a part of your shower routine as the brush gently removes the dead skin preparing your skin to absorb your creams.

I had the pleasure to interview Dr. Gabriele Stahl, who’s responsible for The Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush, and who gave some valuable advise on our beauty regime:

Dr. G

1. As a practical woman with minimum time for pampering herself, what is the best beauty/ facial regime that I, and every woman like me, should follow?

The key to a healthy skin is simply the result of a healthy and well balanced lifestyle. Just apply sunscreen, eat healthy, do not overdose on creams and make up, and make sure to clean your face in the evening after applying any cosmetics and before you apply your night cream.

Her answer reminded me of one my favourite speeches/ song: Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen by Laz Buhrmann . You should listen to it :)

2. Is it healthy to apply a face cream after using the Braun exfoliating option?

Depends on the type of cream, and the skin type. For example dry skin would best suit a thicker moisturizer, oily skin would benefit from a moisturizing gel – but for optimal results it’s better to use the Braun cleansing brush, then use the epilator at the end of the day and apply your care cosmetic product.

3. Could the Braun facial epilator cause the new hair to grow thicker or more intense?

Not at all; epilation has been proven to be the best hair removal method as it removes hair from the root and does not irritate the skin, It is much faster and more thorough than tweezers. It removes four times shorter hairs than wax, so you don’t have to wait for the hair to be completely visible. It is much longer lasting up to 4 weeks. And finally, you can epilate at home or on the go, no need to run to that threading appointment.

4. What product or technique should we follow in order to clean and what techniques should we follow in order to exfoliate since both use the same head brush?

Braun’s deep-pore cleansing brush is six times better than manual cleansing. The cleansing brush preps the skin to absorb products more efficiently and leaves women with visibly brighter skin. The brush can be used every day on cheeks, T-zone and chin for a more radiant skin. Apply soap, gel, cleansing milk or scrub on your wet skin. Switch on the brush and start on the forehead. You can move to the nose and then outward towards the cheeks on either side. Spend more time on oily zones. It can also be used on the neck and décolleté. Exfoliation can be done with your favorite cosmetic exfoliation product and we recommend only 1 x per week.

5. Is it safe to use the head brush after tanning?

Yes absolutely; it would help clean up your pores from all the oil and dirt which can accumulate when then skin is exposed to the sun. Make sure to regularly apply sunscreen not just when tanning.

6. Can the Braun epilator be used on body parts other than the face?

Mechanically, it will work on other sensitive areas. However, it is not recommended to use one device on multiple body areas due to hygiene reasons.

 

  1. كسيدة عملية ليس لديها الكثير من الوقت لتدليل نفسها، ما هو أفضل نظام للجمال والعناية بالوجه الذي يمكن لي وللسيدات مثلي اتباعه؟

أساس البشرة الجميلة والصحية هو أسلوب الحياة الصحي والمتوازن. استعملي مستحضرات الوقاية من الشمس وتناولي الطعام الصحي ولا تفرطي في استعمال الكريمات والمكياج، واحرصي على تنظيف الوجه دوماً في المساء قبل وضع كريم الليل.

  1. هل من الصحي وضع كريم الوجه بعد تقشير الوجه باستخدام براون؟

يعتمد ذلك على نوع الكريم ونوع البشرة. على سبيل المثال، يناسب المرطب السميك البشرة الجافة، بينما تستفيد البشرة الدهنية من جل الترطيب، ولكن للحصول على النتائج المثالية عليك استعمال فرشاة براون لتنظيف الوجه ثم استخدام آلة إزالة الشعر في نهاية اليوم، وبعدها وضع المستحضر الخاص بالعناية. 

  1. هل يمكن أن تسبب آلة براون لإزالة الشعر نمو الشعر أكثر سماكة او خشونة؟

أبداً. لإزالة الشعر بالجهاز مزايا عديدة، منها نزع أقصر وأنعم الشعرات من الجذور، كما أنها أسرع 200 مرة من الملقط اليدوي وأكثر شمولاً في تغطيتها، لتشمل الشعرات الأقصر بواقع 4 مرات مقارنة بالشمع، مما يعني أنه لن يكون عليك الانتظار حتى نمو الشعر كي يصبح مرئياً يمكن إزالته. تدوم فترة النعومة لمدة أطول بكثير (تصل إلى 4 أسابيع) مقارنة بكريمات إزالة الشعر. وأخيراً، يمكنك إزالة الشعر في المنزل أو خارجه، ودون الحاجة إلى تحديد مواعيد في مراكز التجميل.

  1. ما هي المنتجات أو الطريقة التي يجب اتباعها لتنظيف وتقشير الوجه بما أن كليهما يستخدمان نفس الفرشاة؟

فرشاة تنظيف المسامات من براون أفضل ست مرات من التنظيف العادي، وهي تنظّف البشرة بعمق ليسمح لها بامتصاص المستحضرات بكفاءة وسرعة، وبالتالي تتمتع المرأة ببشرة أكثر جمالاً ونضارة.   يمكن استعمال الفرشاة يومياً على الخدين والجبهة والأنف والذقن للحصول على بشرة أكثر نضارة. ضعي الصابون أو جل التنظيف أو الحليب المنظف أو المقشر على البشرة الرطبة. شغلي الفرشاة وابدئي من الجبهة، ثم انتقلي إلى الأنف وبعدها إلى الخدين من كلا الجانبين. خصصي وقتاً أطول للمناطق الدهنية، ويمكن استعمال الفرشاة أيضاً على العنق وأسفله.  يمكن إجراء التقشير باستخدام المنتج المفضّل لديك، وننصح به مرة واحدة فقط في الأسبوع.

  1. هل من الآمن استعمال الفرشاة بعد تسمير البشرة؟

نعم آمن تماماً، فهي ستساعد في تنظيف المسامات من الزيوت والأوساخ التي قد تتراكم على البشرة عند تعرضها للشمس. احرصي على وضع مستحضرات الوقاية من الشمس في كل وقت، وليس فقط عند تسمير البشرة.

  1. هل يمكن استعمال الآلة في مناطق أخرى من الجسم، إلى جانب الوجه؟

من ناحية ميكانيكية، تفيد الآلة عند استخدامها في المناطق الحساسة. ولكننا لا ننصح باستخدامها على أجزاء الجسم المختلفة لأسباب صحية.

The first ever 3D Virtual Fashion Show

A couple of months back, Procter & Gamble approached me for the first of its kind event in the world. The unique first EVER 3D Virtual Fashion Show to showcase a capsule from my upcoming collection “Le Pouvoir de la Poudre – The Power of Powder” as part of the main event star: Ariel 3D! Note that my collection’s name had already been set a while before this opportunity knocked my door as it was inspired by powder tones and the Côte d’Azur reflecting romantic yet powerful cuts.

I immediately said Yes! The hard part was keeping it a secret, but I did!

June Ambrose & Aiisha Ramadan

With Ariel goes deeper to make 3D history being the theme and inspired by the 3D revolution, Ariel is bringing real 3D innovation to the world of Fabrics and Fashion. Ariel scientists have used patented 3D tools and technology to gain a deeper understanding into fabrics, fibers, and stains, and have now developed a new deep cleaning formula; that penetrates deep into the layers to extract stains.

More than 150 people from more than 27 countries, most of them press and some celebrities such as Boy Abunda and Manish Malhotra, came together to be a part of Ariel’s global launch event. The event has already been mentioned in Forbes Magazine and Women’s Wear Daily.

With Ariel being pioneers in their own field, they extended their leadership to the first ever 3D Virtual Fashion Show produced by local company AIR, showcasing few pieces from my Couture collection and hosted by Hollywood celebrity stylist June Ambrose, who flew in from New York to be part of this special event wearing an AIISHA orange dress from the Love Affair collection. Everything in the fashion show was virtual and animated from the catwalk, to the models and myself greeting people on the runway, as well as the virtual kisses and rose petals, which took the viewers by surprise. These elements created depth and excitement.

June Ambrose and Aiisha Ramadan

Colorful 3D Glasses

Another highlight of the event was the 3D Projection Mapping of Ariel in collaboration with LG portraying the ‘Deepest Cleaning Test’ on a large building in a construction site in downtown Dubai produced by Muse Amsterdam. The “Deep Cleaning Test” stained the building with life-like forces of nature and pollution, then “cleaned” it like new.

I only work with brands I believe in. To prove how effective this new technology is, I accidentally got my jersey silk powder pink dress smudged with some Teriyaki sauce and black marks spread out (in the middle of the event) . Naturally I freaked out, but it was caught on camera how I got them off using Ariel 3D Microboosters! The product worked like a charm cleaning the stains preserving my delicate garment.

Many would wonder why Ariel collaborated with a Couture brand? Its simple. Even Couture needs to be cleaned and I choose to take the matters by hand!

 

The AIISHA collection presented at this fashion show will be officially launched in October in the UAE and in other parts of the world. Stay tuned as this is the dearest collection to my heart!

 

AIR, P&G and H&K - Some of many brains behind the event

 

I’d like to thank everybody who worked on this event and topping the list: P&G for their continuous support, H&K for a great opportunity, AIR for their first ever 3D production in the Middle East and June Ambrose for changing my life in a matter of few days.

More coverage of this unique event, including the video, soon.
