Most men would prefer to shave their chests and other parts of the body. But what if there was a better alternative in the form of hair removal cream for men?
Manscaping, or the process of a man removing hair from any part of his body, is an art that has gained prominence over the last decade. Today’s men prefer clean, hair-free skin as opposed to earlier generations of men who would rather die than give up being hairy all over.
Why do men manscape?
Because many of them realise that the woolly mammoth is now extinct, and so should the hairy look for men. For years now, hairy chests and limbs have been associated with virility and manliness. So much so that the first time the metrosexual trend caught on in the early 2000s, men who sported cleanshaven faces and hairless arms and legs were derided for being ‘feminine’.
Ah, how times change. Today, most men realise that being termed ‘feminine’ is not an insult, and that excessive hair on the body is a definite turn off. If hair is to be tousled and wild, let it be on the crown of your head, not on your shoulders, or chest or even in your nether regions! But if you were thinking of taking scissors and a razor to your body, wait up – there’s a great alternative that is both painless and precise.
It’s a gel that is actually a hair removal cream for men – you can thank Veet for this innovation.
Why a hair removal cream for men works better than other hair removal methods
If you want smooth, hairless skin for days on end, you would naturally ask your salon to wax your skin.
But have you ever experienced waxing? To know what surprising, mind numbing pain is, get a wax strip and paste it firmly on the hairiest part of your chest. Now pull off and stop yourself from screaming out loud – it hurts like nothing has ever hurt before. So tell us, do you really want to wax your chest? The same problem occurs with your hairy arms and legs. You might now change your mind and tell yourself that shaving off your body is fine. But it’s not – you will get tremendously rough stubble that will itch all the time.
If you are suddenly convinced that being hairy is quite alright, we’ve got some great news: you can ditch your plans to wax or shave, and reach for a hair removal cream for men instead.
Veet has formulated a gel that is a hair removal cream for men. This is how it works: once you apply it on the skin, the cream begins to dissolve the hair just below the skin’s surface. After a few minutes, the hair attains a jelly-like consistency and it comes away easily when you wipe it off with a damp cloth. Your skin is now completely hair free and smooth – just the way you wanted, minus the pain!
