How to trim and remove body hair yourself!

Maintaining smooth, hairless skin can be a time-consuming and expensive process.

Those regular waxing and grooming appointments at the beauty salon can put a serious dent in your budget and can also be painful. And if you adopt a DIY approach at home, well, it can even be dangerous! 

Now there is a quick, easy and safe way to trim your body hair yourself. Veet recently introduced the Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer. According to Veet, this beauty styler can gently shave, shape and groom even the most delicate areas of your body. The cutting blades don’t touch the skin, making this a safe product to use.

From grooming your legs for a smooth and silky effect to shaping your eyebrows, grooming your underarms and creating that perfectly trimmed bikini line, this device is perfect for all your grooming needs.

The Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer is designed to use on dry skin, so you don’t need to take a bath or shower in order to use it. This battery-operated device is travel-friendly too. It comes in a handy pouch to store your trimmer in after use.

This beauty styler includes a two-sided precision head for optimal eyebrow shaping, a bikini trimming head, two comb attachments, a styler cap, a cleaning brush, the beauty pouch and one AA battery.

Here are two ways to use your beauty styler:

To shape and trim your eyebrows


Use the small head and comb. You can choose between two different lengths: 2mm and 4mm.

Place the device over your eyebrow and move it in the opposite direction of hair growth.

For precision contouring, remove the comb and use the high-precision head. It also has two heads, ideal for shaping eyebrows and other facial areas.

To shape your bikini line and underarms

Use the large precision head. Add the comb and choose the desired length. Once the desired length is achieved, remove the comb and use the precision head to shave and shape.

To use, touch skin lightly and move the device in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Twist device around for clear shaping and perfect results.
