Body Sugaring: A Natural, Gentler Alternative to Traditional Waxing
Sugaring hair removal is an ancient Middle Eastern practice that uses an all-natural paste made from sugar, water, and lemon juice. It is an excellent natural option for hair removal for the whole or different parts of the body. By removing the hair follicles at their roots, the results can last up to six weeks. With all-natural ingredients and a gentler touch than wax, sugaring has experienced a recent surge in popularity as an alternative to traditional waxing.
Sugaring takes the form of either a paste or a gel. The paste is the traditional technique, where a thick, warm mixture is applied in the opposite direction of hair growth, then removed in the direction of the hair’s growth. The gel technique is similar to waxing, where the gel is applied in the same direction as the hair growth and then removed in the opposite direction with either a muslin or cloth strip.
Here are some key differences between sugaring and waxing:
Large amounts of hair may be removed at the same time, faster than waxing.
Sugaring allows for larger areas to be covered than waxing, even if they are removed in small strips, whereas waxing requires placement and removal on each small area at a time, slowing down the process.
Both the sugaring paste and gel are water soluble, so they can be rinsed off with just water as opposed to wax which requires an oil-based removed for clean-up.
Sugaring is less painful than waxing.
Lack of knowledge or cleanliness can lead to problems, so it’s best to let a professional do your sugaring treatment.
