Bestie, having body hair or no body hair is entirely up to you. What’s important is that you feel ~empowered~ in your own skin. That said, if you feel at your best when hair-free, you’re in luck because you’ve got tons of easy-to-use at-home hair removal products at your disposal — just keep in mind that these aren’t one-size-fits-all.

ICYDK, there are hair removal products designed for specific needs, skin types, and even pain tolerance, and it’s important to know which one is for you. First, ask yourself …

  • What’s my skin type? Is it sensitive, normal, or dry?
  • What is my level of pain tolerance?
  • What body part am I targeting? (Face, arms, bikini line, legs, underarms, etc.)
  • Do I have other skin and body hair concerns to consider? (Hyperpigmentation, ingrown hairs, etc.)

Your answers to these questions will then guide you the next time you’re shopping for hair removal products. Veet, a global beauty brand with over 100 years of body hair expertise, actually offers a wide assortment of hair removal products you can easily use at home.

Check out this handy guide so you can find ~the one~ that fits you best:

If you’re targeting any body part and have low pain tolerance: Veet Cream for Normal Skin1

Razors can make your skin feel rough and stubbly, so depilatory creams were invented to fix this issue. They’re quick and hassle-free, and work by dissolving the hair so that you’re left with silky smooth skin. Bye-bye, ingrown hair and rough stubbles!

If you have sensitive skin and low pain tolerance: Veet Cream for Sensitive Skin2

Yes, there is a soothing hair removal cream designed just for your skin type! This one has aloe vera and vitamin E, which have hydrating and calming properties.

If you have normal or dry skin and are concerned about hyperpigmentation: Veet Cream Brightening for Normal/Dry Skin3

If skin darkening is an issue, go for this brightening hair removal cream. It has microbeads that help gently remove dead skin cells to reveal smooth and bright skin after each sesh.

If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about hyperpigmentation: Veet Cream Brightening for Sensitive Skin4

This means your skin needs extra, extra TLC! Try Veet Cream Brightening for Sensitive Skin, which has microbeads that help gently slough dead skin cells.

If you’re targeting small areas on your face and want long-lasting results: Veet Face Wax Strips for Normal Skin5

Removing facial hair is tricky! It’s short and scattered on small areas like your chin and upper lip. So, these precision strips with Easy-Gelwax™ technology are heaven-sent! It enables the wax strips to actively grip short hairs (as short as 1.5 mm!) and not the skin, helping you achieve smoothness that lasts up to four weeks (28 days).

If you’re targeting bigger areas and want long-lasting results: Veet Wax Strips for Normal Skin6

These wax strips remove hair from the roots, which means you get smooth and hair-free skin for up to four weeks! Remember, frequent waxing helps make the hair look fine and may reduce growth over time. These Veet wax strips also have Easy-Gelwax™ technology, shea butter, and a pleasant berry fragrance.

If you have dry skin and want long-lasting results: Veet Wax Strips for Dry Skin7

If your skin feels parched, try these strips instead. Aside from having the Easy-Gelwax™ technology that helps remove hair as short as 1.5 mm, these wax strips are also enriched with moisturizing aloe vera and lotus flower — two ingredients that are great for dry skin!

DIY hair removal can be easy and hassle-free so don’t be intimidated to give it a shot! Just remember to choose the Veet product that fits your needs and you’ll be hair-free in no time.
