Veet hair removal cream, formerly called Neet and Immac, is a Canadian brand of chemical depilatory products manufactured by the British company Reckitt. Hair removal cream, gel, mousse, and wax products are produced under this brand, with differing variants being sold internationally.
We are all different. Different Bodies. Different body hair. And the way we look after our bodies should always be our personal choice.
Veet hair removal cream makes it easier for women to stay in control with a range of superior hair-removal solutions to suit different skin types, different styles and different moods.
Depilatory creams have become a much more popular method of hair removal in recent times.
Before smearing on the cream, remember to exfoliate to get rid of dead skin and wash off any other creams or lotions from your skin.
There are a range of different forms of depilatory creams. Some you can keep on your legs while you shower and others you just apply from three to ten minutes, depending on the cream, and wipe away with a damp cloth. Remember to read the instructions before applying the cream and always perform a patch test 24hours in advance.
Veet offers a range of hair removal creams that are perfect for those who want smooth legs, underarms and bikini lines without the fuss.
Depilatory creams dissolve the hair down to the root leaving you with smooth skin for around 48 hours longer than it would be if you had shaved.
BENEFITS OF VEET HAIR REMOVAL CREAM.
Preventing ingrown hairs:
You can feel confident that using Veet will help you prevent ingrown hairs. Some Veet creams give you up to 80% less ingrown hairs than shaving does. And even if you choose to wax, with the right care you can help prevent ingrown hairs from occurring after.
We suggest that you exfoliate 24 hours before using Veet. It’s a good idea to do this regularly – most skin can be exfoliated once a week, but if your skin is sensitive, exfoliate every fifteen days.
And finally, always wear loose clothing following any application of Veet to help avoid ingrown hairs developing.
Changing Attitudes towards Body Hair:
Society’s attitudes towards female body hair may seem to be set in stone. When we see models in magazines or billboards, it is extremely unusual to see them as anything other than completely waxed, plucked and preened. This prevalence of the completely hairless woman makes it easy to believe that it must have always been this way, but if we look back a little through history, we can see that fashions and attitudes are in no way static.
The idea of removing body hair was not something that was widely considered until the Ancient Egyptians1 . Prior to this, there is evidence that it may have been removed for ritualistic or personal reasons, but it couldn’t be considered a trend. It wasn’t until the Egyptians, that a society embraced hair removal as a fashion. They would remove all of the hair from their bodies, men and women both, using razors, sugaring, or primitive depilatory creams. This was a practice later adopted by the Romans, although with both cultures, it would have been far more common amongst the rich.
The (5 O’Clock) Shadows of Time
Viking burial sites often contained razors, mirrors, and combs which shows that they took great care with their appearance, and hair in particular, so it would not be unreasonable to assume that this would extend to body hair. It was also during this time that Islam was founded in the Middle East, which teaches that the armpits should be plucked, and the pubic hair shaved2. So, we can safely assume that the trend and custom of removing body hair, was alive and well during the first millennia.
A Body Hair Renaissance
In Renaissance art there was nary a body hair to be seen, so it follows that society would take instruction from this, and that it became the norm to take a lot more care over one’s body hair. This is evidenced in the often quoted anecdote about the art critic John Ruskin, in that he was unable to consummate his marriage due to his shock and distaste at seeing his wife’s apparently un-Renaissance naked body!
The 20th Century
Although we can see that there have been fashions and trends for hair removal all throughout time, it wasn’t until the twentieth-century that these trends began to be followed by everyone from all walks of life. The main reason for this is the widespread availability of hair-removal products, and aggressive marketing campaigns in magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar. For example, in 1915 they released an advert showing a woman with her arms in the air, exhibiting hair-free armpits with the line: “Summer Dress and Modern Dancing combine to make necessary the removal of objectionable hair”3! In this same year, Gillette released the first razor marketed specifically at females.

HOW TO USE VEET HAIR REMOVAL CREAM.
If you lust after silky smooth legs, there are a number of techniques you can use. In this guide, we outline some preparation tips to make the hair removal process as easy as possible so you can get even better results.
Shaving is one of the most common methods of hair removal, it’s quick, easy and you have results in minutes.
Firstly, you should always thoroughly wash your legs before shaving so if you cut yourself, you will be less likely to get an infection. Also, having a hot bath or shower will allow your skin to soak up the moisture and soften the hairs.
Next, exfoliate your body using a loofah or exfoliating gloves to get rid of any dead skin and cover your legs with shaving cream or gel. This will help to prevent any cuts from the blades and help to keep your skin moisturised throughout.
