Sugaring is an ancient technique passed down through the ages from the old civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece, with Cleopatra as probably its most famous fan. Sugaring is made up of all natural food-grade ingredients like sugar, lemon juice, water and sometimes essential oils, salt and/or honey.
Waxing versus sugaring, they are not the same! Often they’re put in the same category of hair removal because they’re somewhat similar in the way they get rid of hair. Yes both are designed to uplift hair out from the follicle.
However, they are very different from one another when it comes to one aspect extremely important- pain! Discover why even the people that cringe at the thought of the tiniest bit of discomfort are saying, ‘Pour some sugar on me’.
Sweet, but not sticky
Sugaring paste you can wash it off with plain old water. On other side of story with wax that needs to be taken off with a special wax remover, baby oil or petroleum jelly. Sugaring doesn’t attach to live skin cells. Sugaring will only take away dead skin cells, unlike waxing which also removes live skin cells. If you’re skin isn’t already over-exfoliated you don’t have to worry about the sugar accidentally removing skin. Sugar paste is used lukewarm so there’s no chance of burning the skin.
Less strain, less pain
Sugaring technique using the paste is removed in the same direction hair grows, putting less strain on the skin- always a plus for the pain management department.
