What is sugaring?
When it comes to hair removal, not every method works the same for everyone. If waxing is too irritating for your skin, sugaring might be your new hair removal solution. Sugaring has become very popular in the last two years, but little do people know, it has been around for centuries. Sugaring is a hair removal technique that has withstood the test of time. The mixture is completely natural and is made up of sugar, honey, and lemon. The mixture removes hair without taking off any skin, making it less painful than traditional waxing methods. There are so many great benefits to sugaring that make it a wonderful substitution for waxing.
What are the benefits of sugaring?
Sugaring is made up of 100% natural ingredients which makes it a great alternative for people who get irritated from waxing. Sugaring is also just as good for your skin as it is for hair removal. The sugar helps exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells without removing any live cells, leaving you with smoother and healthier looking skin. Sugar is also rich in Vitamin E which is essential for glowing skin. If you’ve been waxing your entire life, you have probably been burned once or twice, so you know it can be a painful experience. This isn’t something you have to worry about with sugaring, because the mixture is applied at room temperature leaving no chance of being burned.
How does sugaring work & how long does it last?
We’re sure you are wondering how this simple ancient mixture actually helps remove hair. During the process, the esthetician will pour the warm mixture in the opposite direction of your hair growth in order for the sugar to properly form around the follicles. Once the mixture has set, the esthetician will pull the hardened mixture off using a quick flicking motion. Due to the fact that the ingredients are natural, your skin doesn’t end up irritated like it does when you wax. Although sugaring is less painful than waxing, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s no pain. Unlike waxing, sugaring can be done in large sections and on any part of the body. Results last about 3-5 weeks. After continuous sugaring, there will be noticeably less hair growth in the area and one day, it will most likely lead to permanent hair removal! Aftercare is similar to waxing – no scented perfumes or lotions, deodorant, heat, direct sun, or sweating is advised.
