Some women celebrate their body hair and some prefer to get rid of it regularly. Either way, it’s all about doing what’s comfortable for your skin, am I right? But if you’re leaning towards the latter, it’s best to know what would work best for your skin type. To help you get started, allow us to debunk common hair removal myths and suggest products for your DIY hair removal sesh at home. Read on: 

Myth # 1: Hair grows back thicker after waxing.

ICYDK, hair texture is influenced by hormonal and genetic factors. This means how you remove your hair isn’t really responsible for *thick* body hair. However, frequent waxing can make hair look finer and help reduce their growth over time. If you’re planning to do it, try Veet Wax Strips with Easy Grip for Normal Skin to help remove hair from the roots in just a strip! It has moisturizing shea butter along with a berry fragrance to suit normal skin. 

If you have dry skin, you can also try Veet Wax Strips with Easy Grip for Dry Skin. It’s infused with aloe vera to help hydrate dry, parched skin. 

Myth # 2: You can't use hair removal cream if you have sensitive skin.

While it’s true that some hair removal methods aren’t compatible with sensitive skin, you can still be ~kind~ to your skin by using soothing hair removal products. Take Veet Hair Removal Cream for Sensitive Skin for instance. It’s specially formulated with aloe vera and vitamin E, which both contain hydrating and calming properties suitable for your skin type. 

Myth # 3: You shouldn't apply hair removal cream on your bikini line.

Much like the previous myth, you can always make things *smoother* even down there! Opt for a product that’s gentle on the skin and can work close to the root even on short hair. Our reco: Veet Hair Removal Cream for Normal Skin. It has lotus milk extract that helps soften skin as well as Jasmine to give you a refreshing post-hair removal feeling. You can also switch to the sensitive skin-friendly variant if you want a more soothing cream. Tip: Don’t leave your hair removal products on for longer than advised. Apply carefully and remember to keep them away from your intimate area. 

Myth # 4: Hair removal cream can darken skin.

Hyperpigmentation can be a reaction to harsh skincare products, so consider looking for a hair removal cream that has brightening ingredients and is gentle on your skin type. Check out Veet Hair Removal Cream Brightening for Sensitive Skin. It’s packed with *~microbeads~* that not only remove short, stubborn hair but also get rid of dead skin cells with regular use. The best part? It will help reveal smoother, brighter skin!

From wax strips to creams, Veet has made it easier to pull off DIY hair removal sessions even at home. So even if you skip your next salon appointment, you can still choose to get rid of unwanted body hair ASAP!
