Myths and Truths about Veet hair removal: TRUTHS
When it comes to hair removal, there is a lot of information out there. We all know how difficult it can be to find accurate information on the internet these days, so we’ve made it easy for you. Read through this article to become a Veet expert and have all your hair removal questions answered.
FACT: Wearing tight-fitting clothes can cause ingrown hairs.
Believe it or not, this is actually true. Wearing tight-fitting clothing can help cause ingrown hairs because it obstructs hair growth. This causes the hair follicles to become inflamed. This is especially true for the bikini area. To avoid stubborn ingrown hairs, try to keep your clothing loose and regularly exfoliate.
FACT: Don’t tan immediately after hair removal.
Try to wait 24 hours after hair removal before you tan. This is to prevent sunburns or uneven staining cause by tanning agents. After hair removal, your skin is also far more sensitive. For this reason, it’s even more important to wear sunscreen afterwards. Although, we should always be wearing sunscreen!
FACT: You can remove hair by yourself.
Yes, and we encourage it! Veet products offer the convenience of being able to remove hair by yourself in the comfort of your own home and still be able to achieve amazing results. If you’re nervous to tackle hair removal on your own, don’t worry, we make it easy for you with super detailed instructions on our packaging. Even first-timers achieve smooth results.
FACT: Hair removal can be painful during your period.
When you are on your period, your body can be a bit more sensitive. Since waxing removes hair directly from the root, it can sometimes hurt a little bit. If you’re on your period, you may find the process more painful than usual. If you’re looking for a pain-free way to remove hair during that time of the month, try our hair removal creams. They’ll also help you achieve amazing results.
FACT: You should test Veet products before applying it to any part of your body.
Yes, please do not skip your patch test! Before every use, do a patch test on a small area of your skin you’d like to treat. Wait 24 hours and if you didn’t experience any reactions, you’re good to use that product!
FACT: Avoid swimming immediately after waxing.
In order for your skin to recover and look it’s best after waxing, we recommend waiting 24 hours before you go swimming. Other forms of exercise are okay, though!
FACT: Pregnancy changes your sensitivity levels.
Pregnancy is such an exciting time in a woman’s life. Your body is going through so many changes and one of them is that your body can be more sensitive to pain. Your hormonal changes along with increased blood flow in the skin can cause different reactions to some products. It’s always important to read the instructions on the packaging but even more so during this time in your life. When you are pregnant, waxing can actually cause bruising. So, we recommend our Veet Hair Removal Creams during this time. Of course, please consult with a health-care provider before trying any new product.
