Often that, when I suddenly want to wear some sleeveless top or a skirt, I'd take the easy way out by using razor to remove hair on my underarms or my legs but little did I know, at that age, that shaving would only remove the visible part of the hair strand, and at the same time cause either nicks, cuts, or cause the surface of the skin to darken (or what you would usually call ketiak hitam).
Did you know that while shaving, a person removes about as much skin as hair and this in turn will shed not only the dead skin cells on the surface but also cause it to burn (sore or red patch from excessive friction with bare skin). Did you also know that by removing the hair on your underarms, it would not only look nicer (ahem) but it would also eliminate bacteria build-up from sweating and accumulation of dead skin cells. And it also helps to eliminate odour.
Okay, fine there are, of course, the myths we often hear when using razor that is just plain untrue but if there's an alternative to shaving, why not try it, right? Veet has been in the Malaysian market for a VERY long time. In fact, since the days I was still reading Cleo magazine in high school. New products always spark an interest in me, and I did buy one of their creams only to end up amazed at how the hair strand wrinkles and sort of 'died' during the process and just falls off when you wipe it with a piece of cloth.
Well, these are some of the knowledge I got from the Veet Roadshow as well as from online research. There are many more myths to shaving using a razor but Veet, is offering a better alternative where you use the same method minus the blades. There would be no cuts since there would only be cream and a plastic spatula-like apparatus to remove the hair follicles from the surface of the skin. In fact, if the hair is fine, the roots might even be removed in the process.
Lucky patrons who attended the roadshow received goodie bags from Veet, and went home with more knowledge on hair removal and beauty tips to bag. There was even a contest where a slogan could win you a RM500 M.A.C voucher other than games provided at the roadshow for you to win their product. Freshkon (yes, the contact lenses brand) was also there providing patrons eyecare tips and vouchers. What's not to love? Will keep you guys updated for more roadshows =)
