Hair Removal : Tips and Advice to remove facial hair

A lot of women love the look of facial hair on their man, but facial hair on themselves is not always a welcome sight. All women have it but it only becomes an issue when it starts to become noticeable, and affects their confidence. Luckily there are lots of ways to deal with it and different things work well for different areas of the face.

Depilatory Cream:

This is well known as a great hair removal technique for larger areas of the body, but did you know it is also a great option for facial hair removal? Veet’s Facial Hair Removal Kit is specially designed for sensitive skin, enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E which are great for soothing sensitive skin areas. The kit comes with everything you need, including a small applicator and a Gentle Finishing Cream to pamper your skin afterwards.

Waxing:

This is a very common technique and can be used on many parts of the face. Many women get their upper lip, cheek and chin areas waxed as an essential part of their beauty regime. You could pay for a beautician to remove the hair for you in a salon, but that could mean being out in public with a temporary red patch on your face, when it’s just as easy (and potentially much cheaper) to do it in the privacy of your own home. Veet’s Easy Grip Wax Strips are specially designed for the sensitive skin on your upper lip, cheek and chin and can give you up to four weeks of smooth skin.

Threading:

Threading is another technique that is very popular for many different areas of the face, especially the eyebrows. However, if you are not a trained expert yourself, you will need a trained beautician to do it for you. Luckily, this doesn’t always mean a trip to the salon as there are now threading kiosks popping up in most shopping malls and beauty stores. Threading is very precise as you can remove a single hair at a time (as well as a whole row at once) which makes it a great method for shaping eyebrows.

Bleaching:

This method is mostly used to bleach upper lip hairs so that they become less noticeable. You can apply the special facial bleach at home and after ten minutes, remove it with cold water. With this technique there is no risk of ingrown hairs as you are not removing the hair follicle. However, this also means that the surface will not be completely smooth and hairless. The hairs will still be there, just less noticeable. But there are risks when it comes to bleaching, which many people find off-putting. It is important to be aware of the chemicals involved in bleaching and to read the instructions very carefully before use.

Plucking:

This is quite a slow process that involves using a pair of tweezers to pluck out one hair at a time. It can be painful, but is very precise when trying to remove that one remaining hair! It is a great trick for removing any stray hairs that have been missed, during waxing for instance.  It is good to invest in a good pair of tweezers for best results.

Intense Pulse Light Technology (IPL):

IPL is a great option if you are looking for a more long-lasting solution. Veet’s own Infinity Silk IPL Hair Removal System works perfectly for an at-home solution. It’s adaptable, with a smaller treatment surface which is specially designed for the face and hard-to-reach areas such as the bikini area and underarms. The device works by targeting the pigmented cells within the hair shaft, and delivering short bursts of light into hair follicles, stopping growth right at the root.
