If smooth, hair-free legs are your goal this summer we have some top tips to help you achieve your goal.
Some of the most common home hair removal techniques are shaving and waxing. Shaving involves cutting the hair off at the skin surface leaving the root of the hair intact while waxing pulls the hair from the root meaning the regrowth is slower to appear.
Wax on. Wax off.
There are two main types of home waxing solutions – cold wax strips and warm wax tubs. With tubs you heat the wax, apply it, then remove it with fabric strips. A great alternative are wax strips, where the strips come with the wax already on it, ready to go.
Simply peel the strips apart and apply one strip to your clean, dry skin in the direction of hair growth. Rub a few time in the same direction so that the wax adheres to the hair, hold your skin taut with one hand and pull on the tab to remove the strip as fast as you can. Try to pull the strip as low to your skin as you can rather than straight up and off.
You can reuse the strip until it loses its stickiness. Use a Perfect Finish wipe or baby oil to remove any extra wax.
Veet Easy-Gel™ Legs Wax Strips come in packs of 20 plus two Perfect Finish wipes.
After use we recommend waiting 24 hours before using anti-perspirant, any other perfumed product, using artificial tanning equipment, swimming or sunbathing.
