What is sugaring?
Sugaring is the ‘sweet alternative’ to waxing for hair removal.
First developed in Ancient Egypt, in the city of Alexandria, body sugaring dates back to the days of Cleopatra. The women of Alexandria placed great value on aesthetics and cosmetics, and were convinced that a hairless body represented beauty, youth and virtue. Using sugar and honey, natural ingredients that were celebrated for their therapeutic properties, they discovered this method of effectively and naturally removing hair from the body.
It is very similar to www.thehairfacts.com waxing but it has some significant advantages over waxing.
The sugar solution only sticks to the hairs, whereas the wax substance sticks to the hair and skin. This means that there is far less pain involved because the skin is not pulled when the sugar is removed. Great for those intimate soft spots!!
The solution is applied warm rather than hot like wax, minimising discomfort.
Sugars contain natural substances and are gentle on the skin, whereas the wax substance contains chemicals which may irritate the skin.
The sugar solution is easy to clean away with water, whereas wax is more difficult to remove due to its petroleum additives.
The hair is removed from the root and re-growth is softer, sparser and lighter in colour, diminishing with each treatment.
The sugar paste is a purely natural product which is great for sensitive skins
On what areas of the body can sugaring be used?
Practically all areas including:
Men have one exception – they cannot use sugaring on the beard due to a different hair root system.
To obtain the best results, hairs should be at least 1/4 inch or 6 mm long. This method of removing hair usually lasts between 4 and 6 weeks. Repeated sugaring treatments will often weaken the hair follicle, making it easier to remove hairs over time.
