What is sugaring?
You may be wondering: what exactly is sugaring? Well, it’s an ancient hair removal method using a sticky, gel-like paste to remove hair. This paste is made up of sugar, lemon juice and water. This means that it’s natural, organic and vegan-friendly as well! Gloved hands are used in to apply the paste on the area, right to the roots of your hairs. Unlike waxing, the hair is removed in the direction of hair growth, preventing breakages. Since those dipping sticks you see your aesthetician use during waxing sessions are eliminated completely, the waste generated is much less!
If you’re still not convinced, here are 5 benefits to sugaring:
Great news if you’re concerned about the environment! Sugaring is a safe and sustainable hair removal method — it produces less waste as compared to waxing. Furthermore, aside from generating less waste, as it is composed of natural ingredients. Therefore, it is completely biodegradable and safe for the earth!
2. Gentler on skin
Sugaring is known to be gentler on skin. The paste only adheres to dead skin. it will not remove a layer of skin, unlike conventional waxing. There’s no risk of burns, too — the paste is applied at body temperature. As a result, some find sugaring less painful than waxing. This also means its a suitable option for those with sensitive skin!
As mentioned in the above point, sugaring only adheres to dead skin cells, so it provides an exfoliating effect on the skin. This in turn enhances absorption of aftercare products and lowers the chances of ingrown hairs.
4. No sticky residue
Unlike wax, leftover paste can easily be washed off with water, leaving no sticky residue behind!
Sugaring will not cause hairs to break, lessening the likelihood of stubbly regrowth. As an added bonus, hair will also grow more sparse and less fast over repeated visits.
