Body waxing is a common practice, but there is a more effective and pleasant method of hair removal out there: sugar waxing! Sugar waxing, or sugaring, actually involves no wax, and is an excellent alternative to traditional waxing. Here are some of the many benefits of sugaring:
The sugar used during sugar waxing is so natural, it is even edible! It is made simply of sugar, water, and citric acid.
In addition to hair removal, sugar waxing also removes dead skin cells from your skin, acting as an exfoliant. Your skin will not only be hairless after your sugaring treatment, it will also be smooth and clear.
It’s less painful
Sugaring is naturally less painful than waxing for a couple of reasons. First of all, sugaring paste is never heated above body temperature, making it impossible to burn your skin. Additionally, sugar does not adhere to living skin cells; therefore, you don’t have to deal with the ripped follicles and redness associated with waxing.
It’s more sanitary
Traditional waxing includes the risk of cross contamination due the the level of bacteria that tend to grow in the jar of wax. Bacteria cannot breed in a jar of sugar wax due to the high concentrations of sugar, making it more sanitary.
It doesn’t break as many hairs
Waxing often breaks the hairs you are trying to remove, causing them to grow back more quickly. Sugaring removes hair more cleanly from the root, so you don’t have to worry about breakage.
