If you’re someone who has sensitive skin, you often take a pause before trying a new product or expanding your skin or self-care routine. We totally get it. But when it comes to hair removal, sensitive skin doesn’t have to be an obstacle in your quest to be hair-free.

Everyone’s skin is different, but you don’t need to sacrifice what you want. You can set your own standard, use Veet® Cream PURE Sensitive Skin*, and be comfortable in the skin you’re in. Ahead, we’ll unpack how sensitivities show on the skin, what hair removal cream is, and how to use hair removal creams for sensitive skin.

How does sensitivity show up on the skin?

Sensitive skin can show up in several different ways on the skin and can be caused by several different factors, including at home environment, immune system, or environmental factors.

Common ways your skin may become sensitive:

  • Dry skin
  • Rosacea
  • Inflammation
  • Allergies
  • Eczema
  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Reaction to sunlight

How can sensitivity show up on the skin?

  • Hives
  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Swelling
  • Blisters
  • Tenderness

Again, sensitive skin is different for everyone, and if you do have sensitive skin, you may have a number of any of these symptoms. 

What is hair removal cream?

Hair removal cream is a wonderful at-home alternative to other types of hair removal methods, such as waxing or shaving. Hair removal cream is also known as depilatory cream, which works to remove hair strands by dissolving the hair on your skin.

Hair removal creams can start to work from 2 minutes**. It’s really important to keep hair removal creams on for the specified time*. Don’t let it linger on your skin for any longer than that. Once the time is up, you scrape the product off, using a warm cloth if you wish to do any clean-up.
