OK ladies, it’s time to put our best foot forward on Valentine’s Day and preen, prime and prep our skin for romance. No Bridget Jones undies tonight! No matter whether you are completely clueless about hair removal for that hot date, or are just in need for quick and easy waxing tips to impress your man, Veet shares their top five tips for silky smooth skin.
1. Achieving sexy, smooth pins is easy
Always start from the bottom around your ankles and work your way up the leg, similarly in the direction that you generally remove your hair. Starting at this point and working your way up in sections ensures you are less likely to miss any patches.

2. Putting your best brow forward
Make sure you are in a well-lit spot so you can see your brows – natural light is the best as you can see everything. Veet’s High Precison Facial Wax and Care is a unique 2-in-1 warm wax system wand that has been specially developed for the removal of unwanted facial hair with the added benefit of after care.

3. Get kissable lips (not furry ones)
Use warm wax for the moustache area, particularly as the lip area is often more sensitive. Veet recommends always holding the lip taut when applying the wax as well as removing it for a more effective removal of the hair. As this area is prone to sensitivity and white heads, gently dab a cool wet cloth around the area to soothe and calm redness.

4. Avoiding the ‘ouch’ factor when it comes to waxing
If using warm wax, always ensure the wax is at a tepid temperature to prevent burning the skin and always ensure you apply the wax correctly. The beauty of Veet’s Electrical Roll-On Kit is that it’s already set to heat up the wax to the optimum temperature and stays at that temperature the entire time so you don’t need to worry about overheating.  Last but not least, try to relax during your waxing treatment and take some beep breaths.

5. Trouble with stubble no more
Hair removal experts usually recommend hair length is at least 1.5-2mm otherwise the wax won’t adhere to the hair. But Veet’s EasyGrip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips can now remove hair that is as short as 1.5mm in length.
