Different Types of Hair Removal

We all wish to have smooth legs, but figuring out the best way to keep them intact is an issue. There are a variety of ways to handle the issue. You can do it the easy way staying at home, or you can visit the beauty salon and be pampered, or you can visit a specialist to find a more long term solution. The technique that works for one person might not work for the other, so it’s all about finding out which one suits you best.


Shaving is a very common method, but it doesn’t give you best results. You might get rid of your hair in minutes but it might end up leaving your legs dry and scratchy, with the growth coming back as quickly as the next day. This technique is only considered when people are in a rush, however if you are not careful, you expose yourself to the risk of ingrown hairs, razor burn, or even cutting yourself in the process – and then you have to spend more time getting yourself cleaned up.

Depilatory creams

Veet is highly appreciated for their range of depilatory creams. These dissolve the proteins in the hair, making the hair weak and allowing them to come away from the skin when you wash away the depilatory cream – all this in a matter of five minutes. They have many varieties in their collection, so there is something for everyone, whether you have sensitive skin or you choose to do your hair removal while taking bath. Irrespective of the product you use, rest assured knowing that you will be leaving with great looking legs thanks to their moisturizing and nourishing ingredients.


Waxing is another technique that you can do at home. Lots of salon use this technique, although if you wish to do it yourself at home, Veet’s ready to use waxing strips are a great option. If you still yearning for that pampering experience, Veet’s new Spawax warm wax kits could be what you are looking for. They come in two lovely aromas – Purple Lily & Sugar Fig or White Orchid & Vanilla – which are ideal for creating a relaxing spa like experience at home.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL has long lasting effects when compared with some of the other options, with an average of hair reduction by 54% at three months, and 50% at 18 months post the last treatment. Unlike laser hair removal, which makes you visit a licensed practitioner on multiple occasion before you get the desired effect, IPL can be done at home with the Veet Infini’silk Pro. It is put to use by focusing light of a wavelength that has the ability to deactivate the hair follicles, preventing the hair from growing back. IPL is not advised for people with darker skin types, and for those with lighter hair, so make sure that you consult a professional before narrowing down on this treatment.

So above mentioned are some methods of removing leg hair, and everyone has their own personal preferences. Which option suits you best? Maybe it’s time you try a different approach! Either way, always make sure you do it with utmost care for best results!
