What is Sugaring
WHAT IS SUGARING?
Sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal. Consisting only of sugar, water and citric acid, the sugar paste is molded onto the skin and removed by lifting the sugar off the skin and taking the hair with it.
Sugar is all-natural, kept only slightly warmer than room temperature (no burning), lifts only dead skin (no bruising or tearing), and can remove hair as short as 1/4 of an inch long – making sugaring a superior service to waxing in nearly every way.
Additionally, the hair is removed in the direction of growth, virtually eliminating breakage and ingrown hairs. For the great majority of our guests there is little to no after care and, as it is reported to cause less discomfort, those who have tried both generally prefer sugaring. Over time, you may notice a significant reduction in the amount of hair in regularly sugared areas.
HOW IS SUGARING DIFFERENT THAN WAXING?
The three major differences are:
(1) Sugar is only heated to body temperature, so there is no chance that your skin will be burned with a hot product.
(2) Sugar paste will not stick to live skin cells and easily dissolves in water.
(3) The hair is pulled in the direction of growth, fully removing shorter hairs than waxing and without breakage.
