Hi I am Louisa from Earth and Skin, an organic, chemical free skincare salon based at Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Body sugaring is a hair removal technique which uses natural sugar paste.
The sugar paste is heated to just above room temperature so it doesn’t irritate the skin like some hot waxes can.
The paste is applied in the opposite direction to the hair growth. It is then removed in the same direction as the hair growth. Removing the paste this way gives sugaring its advantages over waxing.
With sugaring, the hair is more likely to be pulled out by the root and doesn’t tear at or just below the skin surface.
This means that sugaring results in less ingrown hairs than waxing. Because the hair is removed by the root, it results in more permanent hair reduction over time. My clients have all seen significant hair reduction after just a few regular visits.
The sugar paste removes dead skin cells at the same time so your skin is left smooth and exfoliated as well as hair free.
During your treatment, any excess paste is removed but if there are any left overs it is easily removed with water so no need for after care gels or creams.
Sugaring is a natural, beautiful alternative to other hair removal methods. It is vegan and chemical free. Sugaring treatments are similar in price to waxing and the treatments are quick.
A full Brazilian takes less than 15 minutes.
So if you are wanting less pain, less irritation, less ingrown hairs and more permanent hair reduction, give sugaring a try. Because beauty should never compromise your health.
