Body Sugaring

TIPS AND TRICKS

Here's what you need to know and why

WHAT IS BODY SUGARING

​Body sugaring is most commonly compared to body waxing. However, there are several noticeable differences that affect the end result of the removal of the body hair.

SUGARING

  • All natural, vegan ingredients: water, sugar, lemon​

  • Environmentally friendly: water soluble and biodegradable

  • does not adhere to live skin cells (removes dead skin)

  • sugar paste is bacteria resistant

  • applied against hair growth and removed in the direction of the hair (results in less breakage, less ingrowns)

  • applied at body temperature

  • skin feels soft, clean and more comfortable

WAXING

  • Contains beeswax, oils and rosins (potentially other harmful chemicals)​

  • bad for the environment: cleaned with oils and harsh solvents (most hard waxes can't be broken down)

  • adheres to all skin cells

  • bacteria can breed in wax warmers

  • applied in the direction of hair growth and removed against the grain (more likely to cause ingrowns, hair breakage)

  • can burn skin if not allowed to cool enough before application

  • skin can feel raw, uncomfortable and irritated

BEFORE GETTING SUGARED

  • Ensure hair is a minimum of 1/4 inches long (length of a grain of rice)

  • do not apply lotion, cream, oil or makeup to treatment area 24 hours prior to appointment

  • do not exfoliate the day of your appointment

  • exfoliate 2 days before your appointment

  • do not use deodorant if getting underarms sugared

  • drink lots of water the day of your appointment

  • avoid coming in on, or around your menstrual cycle, as the skin tends to be more sensitive

  • take an ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with pain

AFTER GETTING SUGARED

​24 hours after treatment, please avoid the following:

  • scented lotions, creams, oils or makeup to the treated area

  • exfoliation (begin 48 hours after treatment)

  • deodorant, exercising (sweating)

  • saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms and hot yoga

  • avoid swimming and direct sunlight, tanning beds and infrared lamps

  • touching, scratching or rubbing the treated area

  • sexual activities (bikini, bikini plus, brazilian)

Two days post treatment, exfoliate in a circular motion. Use a loofah, scrub bar, shower mitt etc.

follow up with moisturizer to ensure you're keeping ingrowns and any irritation to a minimum. Exfoliate 3x a week.

DO NOT shave between appointments

Rebook every 4-6 weeks for optimal hair removal results.
