So tell me, what is sugaring?
Sugaring or “sugar waxing” is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. During the process, a sugaring substrate sticks to, & essentially removes hair without attaching to the skin. The sugaring paste is applied at room temperature & will not burn the skin. For this reason, sugaring is generally preferred over waxing.
What makes sugaring better than waxing?
Unlike waxing, sugaring removes hair in the natural direction of growth. Removing hair in the natural direction prevents ingrown hairs & early re-growth! Sugaring is completely organic as the only ingredients in sugaring paste are lemon juice, sugar, & water therefore, sugaring is better for those with sensitive skin. Sugaring is considered to be more environmentally conscious, as the process requires less waste from sticks and strips than waxing. Sugaring is extra sanitary as each ball of sugar paste is only used for one service area and should be immediately discarded after a single use. There is no need to worry about the possibility of “double dipping!” The list goes on & on… but need we say more?
Can I be sugared if I’m pregnant?Yes! However, due to pregnancy your skin may be more sensitive than normal (making sugaring more painful.)
How long does my hair have to be in order to be sugared?
We recommend doing your sugaring session about 14 days after your last shave or one month since your last waxing/sugaring service. Your hair should be at least ⅛” long for best results. AKA the size of a large sprinkle or a grain of rice.
How do I prep for my skin for sugaring?
For best results, we suggest not exfoliating the areas you are being sugared for 1-2 days ahead of sugaring. Also, have nothing on your skin. ( lotions, oils, etc. )
If I use Retinol on my skin, or take Accutane, can I still get sugared?
Please wait at least 1 week to perform your sugaring service after using retinol (on the area that you plan to have sugared.) We suggest that you do not do sugaring treatments within the first 6 months of taking Accutane. Please consult your dermatologist before sugaring.
