When to Start Using Veet Products and What's the Best Option for a Beginner?

Everyone’s hair removal journey is unique. Whenever you decide you are ready to begin your hair removal routine, Veet® has the product for you!

When you’ve made the decision to remove unwanted hair, there are a few things to keep in mind. One thing to consider is the area you choose to remove hair! This decision can impact your choice of hair removal product!

Veet offers two main types of hair removal products; Veet waxing strips, and Veet depilatory creams. Both types of products work best on freshly washed and dried skin.

Veet waxing strips can be used anywhere unwanted hair is located. Legs, underarms, facial hair, and yes, even your bikini line! It’s best to start small with waxing strips. For example, start with your upper lip. This will help build a tolerance to the waxing sensation. [1]

Veet® Natural Inspirations™ Wax Strips Face, All Skin Types is a great go to for a quick easy to use experience!

Before beginning your hair removal routine, you should be sure to exfoliate. Exfoliation will help prevent ingrown hairs and rid the area of any dead skin that may get in the way of the hair removal![4]

After you have exfoliated your skin, complete a patch test. Apply, and remove, the product to a small area to ensure there is no negative reaction over a 24 hour time period.[1]

Now that you have exfoliated and completed a patch test you can start using your chosen Veet product!

A tip for those wanting to do their bikini line for the first time, try waxing your legs first to be completely prepared for the more sensitive areas. Veet offers wax strips for both leg and body in one convenient product with Veet® Natural Inspirations™ Wax Strips Legs & Body All Skin Types.

It is also recommended that waxers who menstruate keep their cycles in mind. The closer to your period, the more sensitive your skin will be.[5] It’s also important to stay hydrated and be patient! Allow your hair to grow at least 2 mm or to the size of a grain of rice.[1] And when you’re ready, the results last up to 28 days![1]

The second option for hair removal are depilatory creams. Veet depilatory creams are another quick and simple option for those beginning their hair removal journey. These creams are great for removing unwanted hairs in large or hard to reach areas. Simply apply the cream to the desired area, ensuring every strand of hair is covered, wait the required processing time, and remove.[9] Always be sure to follow the Veet instructions for the best hair removal results!

When all the hair has been completely removed, rinse your skin and pat dry to make sure no product has been left behind.[7] If you notice you’ve missed a spot, don’t worry! 48 hours after your first application, the process can be repeated on the areas that were missed. Be sure to wait at least 48 hours in between hair removal cream applications to avoid irritation.[7]

As a beginner to hair removal, it can be recommended to start with Veet’s Sensitive skin wax and depilatory cream product.
