Myths about Veet

Confused if Veet is right for you? We’ve cleared up some common myths about hair removal.

MYTH: Shaving is the most efficient hair removal method.

You’ll see hair returning only one or two days after shaving with a razor, but with Veet you can have smooth skin for up to four weeks-avoiding that roughness just above the skin surface you get after shaving.

MYTH: Hair removal creams can’t be used on the bikini line.

You can use Veet hair removal creams around your bikini line, but take care not to make contact with your intimate areas. Applying the product too close to the genital area can result in adverse reactions.

MYTH: You should exfoliate the same day you remove hair.

To get the best result when you depilate, exfoliate 24 hours before using Veet products. This can further enhance that silky smooth feeling.

MYTH: The more often you remove body hair, the thicker it will get.

Regular and repeated waxing actually makes hairs grow back finer and thinner over time and our cream hair removal products do not affect hair thickness at all. With Veet you can enjoy longer-lasting smoothness and be confident that when the hair grows back, it won’t be any thicker.

MYTH: People with sensitive skin cannot use Veet.

You can use Veet even if you have sensitive skin! We’ve developed a specially formulated product line for more delicate skin types. Look for products which say ‘sensitive skin’ on the pack - and have been dermatologically tested. Before using, test your reaction by doing a small patch test to check sensitivity. Follow all the instructions on the leaflet inside the package.

MYTH: I should use alcohol-based products when I’m removing hair.

In order to avoid skin irritation, never use alcohol-based products before, during or after hair removal. Remove any excess wax with a Veet Perfect Finish Wipe and you can step out in confidence.

MYTH: Hot showers are good for your skin.

Long, hot showers can dry out your skin. Try to take shorter showers with lukewarm or cool water to be kinder to the skin as well as the environment!
