While sugaring resembles body waxing, the two hair removal techniques are drastically different. Body sugaring is an ancient hair removal technique that uses all natural ingredients - namely sugar, lemon juice and water. Unlike waxing, sugar paste is applied against the growth of the hair and removed with the growth of the hair. Pulling with the direction of hair growth results in more even hair removal, less pain and minimal chance of ingrown hairs. Sugar wax can also be applied to shorter hair growth, meaning less wait time in between appointments.
As sugar wax is made from natural ingredients, it is hypoallergenic! Unlike waxing, which can cause burns and severe skin irritation, body sugaring is a great option for those with sensitive skin. As a hair removal option, body sugaring is more gentle and typically offers better results than waxing.
