Everything you need to know about Sugaring

Sugaring is an organic hair removal service will keep you smooth for weeks and reduce the amount of hair regrowth that you will see.

Having always suffered with a shaving rash after every single shave, I became fed up with trying various disposable and non-disposable razors. Using razors would leave my skin with an itchy rash that I would scratch and scratch until my legs would bleed. I began to notice that my legs were starting to become scarred due to my scratching. As a young girl, the last thing I wanted to do was scar my skin, especially at such a young age! So, I decided to try sugaring.

Here are some FAQ’s on sugaring!

Is sugaring the new solution to shaving and painful waxing?

Waxing removes hair but can also remove the top dead layers of skin as a mild exfoliant. However, the sugaring paste does not stick to the skin at all, it only grabs hair and removes it when pulled away without any of the exfoliation and irritation of waxing. So sugaring is a less painful hair removal method than waxing.

 

Is sugaring bad for your skin?

Sugaring makes use of natural ingredients, such as sugar and lemon that is then turned into a sugary paste. The mixture itself is not harmful to the skin, but the timing of application may be. The mixture should be applied to the skin at a certain temperature to avoid burning.

 

How long does sugaring last?

After your first sugaring, it should last 2-3 weeks. As you continue to get sugared you can go 3-6 weeks!

 

Aftercare for sugaring

  • You need to avoid hot baths or showers for 24 hours following a body sugaring treatment.
  • No abrasives or exfoliating for 48 hours following a sugaring treatment.
  • Slight pinking of the skin is normal and should disappear within a few hours.
  • These steps will ensure your skin is in the best possible condition before and after treatment.
