What is sugaring?
We all know what waxing is. Well, sugaring is the all-natural, healthier version! The natural sugar solution (sugar, water, lemon) is a paste consistency. It is massaged onto the skin by hand at body temperature and then molded against the grain of natural hair growth. With a flicking motion, the solution is then gently removed in the direction of the natural hair growth along with all unwanted hair!
Why is sugar the best option for hair removal?
✓ 100% Natural Ingredients: completely natural: made from sugar, lemon and water.
You can eat it!
✓ Sanitary: hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic: sugar paste is applied with a gloved hand, and a fresh ball of sugar paste is used for each client, meaning no risk of cross contamination.
✓ Less Painful than Waxing: sugar will not stick to live skin cells, only the dead skin cells are removed, so there is less risk of abrasions/tearing and generally less redness than waxing.
✓ Not Hot: sugar paste is lukewarm when it is applied, so there is no risk of burning the skin.
✓ Unique Technique: sugar paste is applied against the natural direction of hair growth, then removed in the direction of growth resulting in a less painful hair removal and less hair breakage.
✓ Extracts Short Hairs: hair growth needs to be only 1/8-inch-long to be removed (about 7 days growth).
✓ Gentle: sugaring is so gentle it can be used to remove the villus hair that grows on some women’s faces
✓ Easy Clean Up: sugar paste dissolves easily in water and there’s no sticky residue left on skin.
