Truths about Veet

Become a Veet expert! We’ll let you in on some useful facts that make removing hair easier                                                                  

FACT: Veet Hair Removal Cream doesn’t make your skin darker.

You don’t need to worry about your skin darkening when you use Veet. Skin darkening is a reaction to irritation and when used correctly, Veet Hair Removal Cream won’t irritate your skin. For best results, exfoliate 24 hours before depilation. Veet Hair Removal Cream with an added moisturizing formula makes it simple to keep your skin feeling great.

FACT: You should prepare your skin before hair removal

A little time is all you need to make sure you get the best possible results with Veet. Wash and run warm water over the area you want to remove hair from - this opens up your pores and cleans away any residues from your skin. It’s important to dry thoroughly after. Follow these easy steps and you’ll find that removing hair with Veet is both simple and effective!

FACT: Waxing makes hair grow back more slowly.

Waxing with Veet wax strips or warm wax removes hair from the root, so it takes longer to grow back. With the Veet wax range you can enjoy fewer, finer, softer hair regrowth.

FACT: Tight-fitting clothes contribute to ingrown hairs.

Wearing tight clothing can help cause ingrown hairs because it obstructs hair growth, causing hair follicles to become inflamed. This is particularly true for the bikini area, and shaving only makes it worse. So regularly exfoliate and try to keep clothing loose and you’ll look and feel beautiful without any annoying ingrown hairs!

FACT: You should not tan immediately after hair removal.

Ideally, you should wait 24 hours to prevent sunburn or uneven staining by tanning agents. Your skin is more sensitive after hair removal so it’s especially important to wear a sunscreen afterwards. – To keep your skin looking beautiful use sunscreen every day as ultraviolet rays can cause premature aging and damage the skin.

FACT: You should not swim immediately after waxing

As your skin is a little more sensitive after waxing, choose other forms of exercise to let your skin recover and look its best after waxing. We’d recommend waiting 24 hours before you go swimming.

FACT: You can remove hair by yourself.

Of course you can! Veet offers the convenience of being able to remove hair by yourself and achieve touchably smooth results. Our helpful videos and package instructions give you the confidence to enjoy effective hair removal in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

FACT: Avoid shaving your bikini area.

Your bikini zone is a sensitive area, and while it might be tempting to shave for convenience, it’s best to avoid this. Shaving can cause ingrown hairs and your skin can dry out, plus you risk nicks and cuts. Chose a Veet hair removal solution and remember it’s important to read all the package instructions before removing hair.

FACT: I need to test Veet before applying it to any body part.

Before every use, do a patch test on a small area of your skin that you wish to treat. If after 24 hours there is no adverse reaction, you can continue to use the product.

FACT: Stress can affect my skin.

Anxiety can have an effect on your skin. Keep your mind sound and relaxed, set limits for yourself, and try not to let stress impact your health. Focus on the things you enjoy and treat yourself from time to time!

FACT: Pregnancy changes your pain sensitivity

It’s a very exciting time and your body is going through so many changes that can make your skin more sensitive to pain. Hormonal changes and increased blood flow in the skin can cause a different reaction to some products, so it’s extra important to read the package instructions before use. 
When you are pregnant, waxing can cause bruising so we would recommend Veet Hair Removal Creams during this time. View the precautions and package instructions for further information.
