Whether it’s overgrown leg hair that you just haven’t got around to removing, bushy brows that need a bit of taming or an unruly bikini line, hair removal can be a pain in all aspects of the word.
Luckily, there are lots of different ways to get rid of any unwanted body hair; although what works for one person might not work for another. Some people prefer to wax, while others might prefer a depilatory cream or using a razor.
Hair removal creams break down the structure of your hair and dissolve the keratin, leaving them weak. They should then fall loose from their follicle and you can simply wipe them away with the cream using the spatula provided in the pack. They are great if you are more sensitive to the pain of some of the other hair removal techniques, although they don’t come without some of their own negatives - namely the smell.
Depilatory creams have a reputation for its bad smell. Having to scrub away at your skin afterwards and leave a window open to let some fresh air in makes this technique a lot less appealing.
Veet took this on board and have come up with an improved formula for our depilatory creams. The Veet Silk & Fresh™ Hair Removal Creams have been developed with a fragrance technology which means that there is no lingering smell during or after the hair removal process; making it a much more enjoyable experience. The aloe vera and Vitamin E in the cream also work throughout to hydrate skin, keeping it soft and moisturised.
With its improved fragrance, Veet Silk & Fresh™ Hair Removal Cream is a great ‘at-home’ option. It is super easy and very quick to do! As with most depilatory creams, you simply apply the cream to the area of hair that you wish to remove with the little plastic spatula that comes with the product, wait for 5 – 10 minutes and then wash it off with a wet cloth. Remember to always be sure to read the instructions and do a patch test before use to avoid any unexpected allergic reaction!
Apart from this, using creams, has a lot of benefits too. Firstly, the results will last a little longer than shaving as the cream is able to remove the hair from just below the surface of the skin. It’s a completely painless, yet effective process; no risk of cuts or nicks from razor blades and no pain from ripping out hair, making it a great option for those with a low tolerance for pain and perfect for sensitive areas such as underarms.
It is a great technique to use on underarms and other areas that aren’t just flat, as you are able to spread it around the curves and contours of your. When it comes to removing the cream after it has worked its magic, whilst wiping it off, you are actually exfoliating your skin at the same time by removing any dead skin cells on the surface! This also helps provide your skin with a beautiful glow!
With all these benefits on top of the improved fragrance, why not give hair removal cream a go and see the results for yourself.
