Hair Removal Tips from Velvet Touch:

A little preparation can go a long way in making hair removal less irritating and more effective. Here are a few tips you can apply to your daily routine that will help make your next hair removal experience go more smoothly.

Before any hair removal procedure, make sure your skin is clean and free from oils or moisturizers. Products on the skin can inhibit the depilatories ability to grab hairs, making them less effective.

Between hair removal procedures, use a loofah sponge to help keep hair follicles free of ingrown hairs. Exfoliating scrubs can also be very beneficial.


Mittens and buffers are made from very fine abrasive fibers. With gentle pressure and a circular motion, you can buff away unwanted hair. The fibers actually grab the hair and remove it from the root or break it at skin level, depending on the length of the hairs. This method is inexpensive and leaves the skin very smooth. Just be sure not to press too hard or you will irritate the skin.

This method of hair removal can be done virtually anywhere and the results can last up to a week. Your skin will also stay smoother longer, since you've also exfoliated old skin. Velvet Touch ® has developed a Mitten for larger body parts like legs and underarms, along with a Facial Buffer with a unique tool for working on the facial area. Both use an exclusive SilCoat finish to gently and effectively remove unwanted hair, while smoothing rough skin.
