Each of us is different when it comes to our routines. Some of us wake up quickly, while others keep pressing the ‘Snooze’ button on our alarms. Some of us love to spend the nights out with friends, while others hit the sack early at night. So whether you like to take some time to get ready in the morning or you have no time to do anything but shower and dress, will decide how much time you can devote to hair removal. We’ve got some tips that you can fit into your beauty routine to give you smooth, hair-free skin quickly – or not!
If you’re one of those people who loves the ‘Snooze’ button on your alarm clock, chances are that by the time you’re really up, you have little extra time to yourself. So you will need a quick hair removal solution that won’t add too many minutes to your schedule. We recommend an in-shower hair removal fix, such as shaving – but if you do this in a hurry, you can get a few nicks and cuts. Besides, the hair will grow out thicker and coarser.
Instead, you can try a depilatory cream in the shower. Veet’s Supreme’Essence In-Shower Hair Removal Cream gives the best results in as little as three to six minutes. It gets to work while you shampoo and condition your hair. The cream is simply rinsed away without a mess, and you can just pat your skin dry with your towel. There may even be time left over to have an extra cup of coffee before you head out the door.
The Early Bird
Then there are those who like to have a bit of time on their hands in the morning – they want to have breakfast, read the paper and even select their outfit carefully. They may prefer a more leisurely hair removal solution. We recommend a warm wax solution, such as Veet Spawax, which gives a smooth finish and you can use it by yourself at home.
The warmer melts the wax for about 30 minutes, which gives you time to get your outfit, day’s plan and lunch box organised. Once warmed, apply the wax in the direction of growth and pull away in about 30 seconds. No strips are needed when you use this device. Every time you pull the wax, you will have soft, smooth skin that glows with health.
The Night Owl
Some people love their nights – they may party, or just be home watching movies, rustling up midnight snacks or IMing with friends. If this sounds like you, then we recommend a salon-like hair removal method for you, which you can use at home. Switch on your favourite music, and reach for your IPL device. IPL, or Intense Pulse Light technology, focusses a broad beam of light on the hair follicles, thus weakening them and removing them from the root. In about ten sessions, you will notice a permanent reduction in hair growth – and you don’t even need to book a salon appointment!
Prep by shaving the unwanted hair, then dry your skin thoroughly. The Veet Infini’Silk Pro has a special setting for the delicate skin in the facial area, bikini line and underarms. Do read the instruction manual carefully before you begin.
Early to Bed!
Late nights are not everyone’s cup of tea. And there is no reason why you need to stay up at night to remove unwanted hair on your body, when you can do it quickly in the morning. Using cold wax strips is a good idea when you’re in a hurry, and the hair stays away for about four weeks. Warm each strip by rubbing between your hands, apply it firmly on the skin and pull away against the direction of growth. Finish by wiping the treated skin with Veet Perfect Finish Wipes* and you’re done. If you do this at night before going to bed, you will find that any redness on the skin will have disappeared by the time you wake up.
Getting enough sleep is essential, and you don’t need to compromise on yours if you have Veet helping you achieve smooth skin!
