Getting smooth, hair-free skin doesn’t have to be a pain — literally. Waxing is an amazing method that’s fast and long-lasting, but if you get antsy removing a band-aid then maybe it’s not for you. Shaving, too, can be a fast effective hair removal method but if you’re like us, you still get razor nicks around your ankles and knees no matter how long you’ve been doing it!
There’s another option: hair removal cream.
Hair removal cream, also known as depilatory cream, is an effective, fast, and cost-efficient way to remove hair from anywhere on the body. That’s the thing: hair removal creams aren’t just for large areas like the legs.
Here, we’ll go through the main spots where hair removal creams can be used on the body and how to use Veet hair removal cream on them.
Where hair removal cream can be used on the body
Whether you’re a first-time user or a seasoned pro, this guide will shed some light on the areas where you can make the most of hair removal cream.
This is a fairly obvious one but important to point out nonetheless. Hair removal cream can absolutely be used on your legs from your ankle on up.
(If you need a small touch up on the foot or big toe, hair removal cream can be used there, too, but only if you feel comfortable doing so.)
Hair removal creams can totally be used on the bikini line, which encompasses a fairly large area, including not just the sides of the pubic area. Apply an even layer of the product and let it sit — it’ll begin to work from 2 minutes** on. You can try Veet® ProfessionalTM Full Bikini Hair Removal Cream Kit*, which can be used on the full bikini area and is enriched with shea butter, leaving the area silkier and smoother than before.
Underarms are a safe spot for hair removal cream. If you’re thinking of using a specific product, try Veet® ProfessionalTM Underarm Hair Removal Cream*, which can be used for all skin types including sensitive skin.
How to use Veet hair removal cream
Now that you know where you use hair removal creams on the body, let’s get into how you can use Veet® hair removal cream.
- Begin by patch testing an area 24 hours before a full hair removal so you can see if you’re sensitive to the product.
- Squeeze hair removal product into hand or spatula and evenly distribute it in the intended area.
- Let sit for the allotted time.
- When ready, wipe off hair removal cream with spatula and use a damp cloth to get any excess cream left behind.
