Sugar and spice and everything nice… that’s what girls are made of. So it’s no surprise that sugar has become one of the go-to ingredients for girls’ beauty regimen—including hair removal.
Certain areas of the body are just more sensitive, including the upper lip, brows and the bikini area; incidentally, they’re also the most common body parts that need grooming.
Thankfully, sugar wax is made from all-natural and food-grade sugar that is free from artificial dyes, fragrances, preservatives and other chemicals which may harm the body.
Expert aestheticians start by cleaning your skin warm water. She then puts cornstarch on it to give the skin extra protection. Then, wax is applied by hand and swiftly but gently. The aesthetician removes it with a flicking motion following the opposite direction of your hair growth. When properly done, it reduces the growth of ingrown hairs, breakage and even manages to remove smaller, harder to remove sections that shaving or depilating can easily miss. It also works to gently exfoliate your skin (so avoid exfoliating before treatment).
And while you may think that you’re not really allergic to any cosmetic ingredient, it’s still a lot more reassuring to know that your skin’s exposure to redness and irritation is minimized.
Here’s the bottom line—using all-natural sugar wax is gentler but just as effective. And it’s still the best option if you have sensitive skin.
