Hair removal can be a maddening affair. We’ve all been there: It’s a quarter past six, you’ve got a date at seven, and you look down and see those tiny hairs on your legs. It’s just your luck that you haven’t noticed them before, when you had the time to dash to the salon. Suddenly, you don’t want to step outside your door. You need to get rid of that hair, and fast.
There are a number of ways to rid yourself of those pesky hairs, such as shaving, waxing, and using depilatory creams. Yet the method you choose depends on your budget, your pain threshold, and your time limit! Let’s have a look at the most popular techniques - you might just discover some new tricks.
Shaving is the quickest method of hair elimination. It involves removing hair from the body by cutting it off close to the skin with a razor. Although quick and easy, shaving can lead to painful ingrown hairs and cuts. If you’re in a rush and can think only of shaving in such a short space of time, you might consider that there are other methods, too.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal that pulls out the hair from the root. But popping into a beauty salon for a wax every now and then can be costly and time-consuming. The alternative is to wax in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Plus, it’s something that doesn’t take long at all, and can be relied on to get you out of a hairy situation fast! Veet offer a range of easy-to-use wax strips and warm waxes that can all be used at home. Our wax strips can give you fantastic results, right when you need them, rather than having to get to a salon.
For those worried about the discomfort of waxing, using depilatory creams are a completely pain-free way of removing hair. You simply leave the cream on for a few minutes and the hair slides right off on wiping. Veet cream dissolves the hair at the root, so that the hair breaks away, keeping you stubble-free for up to four days. Veet has an extensive range of creams to suit your every need. You could use one of our creams, formulated for sensitive skin, to soothe or if you’re really in a hurry, we have a shower hair removal cream that works – that’s right – in the shower!
Regardless of the situation, be it the perfect opportunity to wear that sleeveless dress, or a last minute swim – there is a hair removal solution for you. Some methods are quick but can cause irritation. Others are more time-consuming but have longer-lasting results. Different approaches suit different people but whatever method you opt for, Veet has the perfect solution to leave your skin feeling perfectly soft and smooth to the touch.
