Is Using Wax for Hair Removal Suitable for All?

Waxing is an excellent option for removing unwanted body hair, without worrying about regrowth for up to several weeks. Compared to shaving and depilatory creams, this method can be a real time-saver with its Long Lasting Results. But it’s always important to be sure when choosing a hair removal option. Here are a few factors you may want to consider, before you choose to wax.

Pain, Pain Go Away!

Let’s not avoid the subject - waxing can sometimes be a painful process. If you’ve got a particularly low pain threshold, you might be concerned about whether you’re up to the task. However, there are steps you can take to make sure that the hair comes away as quickly and as pain free as possible. Making sure that the area of skin is pulled taut and that you are pulling the strips against the direction of growth are both important, to avoid having to go over the same area multiple times. Some salon specialists will also recommend applying some baby powder to the area, so the wax is more likely to catch the hair, rather than the skin. If you are still unsure, there are certainly pain-free methods of Hair removal including creams

Irritated or Sensitive Skin

There are all kinds of skin-types out there, and it’s important to get to know yours before choosing to wax. Waxing is generally not advised for skin that is affected by Eczema or Psoriasis, raised moles or areas of broken skin. In these instances, it’s important to speak to your doctor before exploring hair removal options. However, if you’re concerned about Sensitive Skin, you may find that Waxing still delivers the best results. Veet® has an entire range of Waxing Products, with nourishing ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin E designed specifically for sensitive skin. As with any method of hair removal, a good tactic is to test the product on a small area of skin, before continuing to wax.

Rushing Out the Door?

There are lots of practical things to take into account when you’re thinking of the right method of hair removal for you. Waxing can give you smooth results for up to four weeks, potentially saving you having to repeat the process a number of times. But the procedure can take a bit more time compared to other techniques, especially if you’re new to waxing. If you’re rushing out the door and need some Last Minute Hair Removal, the last thing you want is to leave the house with half-waxed legs, or red marks on your upper lip. When you are pushed for time it may be wise to consider other options such as Depilatory Creams (reword to hair removal creams). Depilatory creams can be a great last-minute solution, taking as little as three minutes to work! Veet® In-Shower range is even designed to be used while bathing to save you time getting ready.

Waxing can give you fantastic results, and Veet® offers many other hair removal solutions that could be the solution to suit preferences and needs. Whatever your situation, it’s important to explore your options carefully and be confident in your choice!
