Techniques for Silky-Smooth Results

When it comes to facial waxing, sideburns, and top lip waxing, sticking to the tried and trusted techniques is the secret to success. Don't worry, Veet®’s got your back (and your face!) covered with some easy steps to make sure your waxing journey is as smooth as your skin will be.

Before You Wax

Make sure your facial fuzz has hit the quarter-inch mark. Trying to wax shorter hair will just aggravate your skin.


  • Wash your face thoroughly. Pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Make sure to wash your hands, you don't want germs near your delicate skin after you've waxed it.
  • Start at the top of the area you want to wax. Then go in the direction of the hair growth.
  • Work in small sections to confirm that you are removing only unwanted hair.
  • After you finish, you can use a pair of tweezers to remove any stray hairs.


  • Don’t wax over the same area on your face twice.
  • Avoid swimming, sunlight, working out and sweating hard for a few hours. After you wax your face, your skin will be sensitive.
  • Don't wax your face on the day of an important event. Sometimes, waxing can cause minor skin irritation and redness.
