History of Sugaring
Sugaring is a method of hair removal dating back to 1900 BC. Originating in the Middle East, sugaring has been slowly gaining popularity in the United States due to its use of 3 all-natural ingredients.
Sugar paste is made up of sugar, water and lemon…that’s it! No resins, no chemicals, it’s hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and has little to no heat, minimizing the risk of burns. Unlike wax, sugar paste adheres to dead skin cells making the process more tolerable and eliminating the potential to lift skin.
Traditional sugaring is done with only a ball of sugar paste-no strips are needed. This method includes applying the paste to the area against the direction of hair growth and removing the sugar paste in the direction of hair growth. This leads to less breakage and in-grown hairs, resulting in smoother skin.
