Sugaring is one of the most ancient forms of hair removal. Dating back to early Egypt, this method has made it’s way into the modern world of hair removal and is becoming quite popular among beauty goers.
The sugaring technique employs the use of a sugar paste or gel made from sugar, lemon juice and water. This substance has a wax-like consistency and color, but without the sticky resins, chemicals, preservatives and dyes that conventional “strip” or “hard” wax contains.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The mixture is slightly warmed to room temperature, applied against the direction of the hair growth and then removed with the natural direction of the hair growth. The technique resembles somewhat of a smoothing of the paste over the area of the body with the hand or an applicator and then “flicking” it off.
To remove all of the hairs successfully, one must master the skill of flicking. It takes time to learn, but practice makes perfect, and you’ll be sugaring yourself in no time!
