I’m 23 years old. I stopped shaving last year I hated the ingrown hairs and itching. I am looking for an alternative, but I am afraid of the pain of waxing. I have used Veet on my legs in the past. Is it safe to use Veet on my vagina?
The short answer to this question is no. Veet and other hair removal creams such as Nair contain chemicals that dissolve the hair, and should not be used on sensitive areas such as the vulva as it can result in damage to sensitive skin.
Veet can safely be used by most people on the bikini line, but care should be taken to ensure that it does not come into contact with the sensitive inner areas such as the labia minora, clitoral hood and vaginal entrance.
It is also a good idea to test the skin on the bikini line for sensitivity to Veet. To do this, first apply only a small amount of Veet to a small area for a few minutes, and then assess whether there has been any adverse reaction to it.
