We recommend waiting at least 72 hours before removing hair again, regardless of the method. Do not wax the same part of the body more than once during hair removal! With a single application within 72 hours you will achieve the best results and protect your skin.

Before using Veet, your skin should be clean and dry. Oil and residues of moisture or sun creams can significantly reduce the effectiveness of depilatory creams and waxes.

On cold days, our muscles unintentionally contract, tightening our skin. When it's cold, you should remove the hair in a pleasant, warm environment; this opens the pores and thus reduces discomfort. To remove hair in a painless way in the cold, it is best to use Veet hair removal creams. These work so well because their active ingredients penetrate beneath the surface of the skin and dissolve the proteins that make up hair.

Alcohol-based products can cause skin irritation. We recommend that you wait 24 hours after depilation before you allow substances containing alcohol on your skin or do without them altogether.

FACT: Wax products should only be used once.

For reasons of hygiene, we recommend that you do not use wax more than once for depilation.

Right, but there is one exception: if you have just used a wax strip, you can use it again immediately to depilate a small, as yet untreated area. You should then dispose of it.
Warm wax, on the other hand, should only be used once and then disposed of.

FACT: Exfoliating can prevent hair from growing in.

We all want noticeably smooth skin, free of annoying ingrown hairs. Exfoliating skin removes dead skin cells and is one of the easiest ways to avoid ingrown hairs. Use peelings regularly - preferably once a week, or every fortnight if you have sensitive skin.

FACT: Trimming body hair before waxing reduces discomfort during application.

Veet wax strips develop their effect optimally with a hair length of about 1.5 mm. We therefore recommend that you trim your leg, armpit and bikini area hair before use. Hair longer than 5mm should be trimmed to avoid discomfort. In addition, you remove the hair more effectively in this way and do not waste wax strips unnecessarily!
