Hair Removal : How to get a Great Bikini Line

Along with finding that perfect poolside outfit to make you look and feel great, we also need to make sure our bikini lines are looking perfectly preened and smooth.

Of course, you could book yourself into the salon for a beautician to sort it out for you but that could end up costing you quite a bit of money. You may be surprised at how easy it is to achieve quick results yourself, all in the comfort and privacy of your own home using Veet® EasyGrip™ Wax Strips for Face & Bikini. You may even save yourself some money on those potential salon bills! Have a look at our guide below to find out how. Be sure to always read and follow all label directions.

Step by Step

Before you start, it is advised to make sure your hair is at least a 1.5mm long– if not, the wax might not be able to grab the hair properly. Have a shower and use a mild exfoliator to clean up any dirt or dead skin before you begin waxing. Before you wax, it can be a good idea to apply some powder on the skin so the wax just attaches to the hair and not the skin. It will also help to soak up any moisture or oils on the skin.

Find somewhere comfortable to do your waxing. You could try laying a towel on the floor or on your bed to protect from any potential mess. One technique is to lie on the end of your bed with your feet flat on the floor and a pillow to prop your head up so you can see what you are doing – it may be a little tricky but keep a mirror on hand to help with those hard to see areas.

Cold wax strips must be warmed up first, by rubbing them between your hands. Place your wax strips on the area of hair of your choice, and press the wax down onto the hair. Hold your skin taut, grip the wax strip and tug quickly against the direction of hair growth.

Try to avoid waxing the same area of skin twice during a waxing session. Any nagging hairs can always be tackled using a pair of tweezers. After waxing, you can wipe the area over with one of the finishing wipes that comes with the Veet® Easy-to-Use wax strips.

Be sure to gently exfoliate the waxed area two days after the hair removal. This will reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.

And there you have it! You should now be super confident, ready to go out and enjoy the sun in your pretty new swimsuit or even show off your bikini line!
