Sugaring or sugar waxing is an ancient Egyptian method of hair removal or epilation. The history of body sugaring (also known as Persian waxing) can be traced all the way back to 1900 BC. This Arabic beauty regimen is popular in the Middle East due to the abundance of sugar produce or honey in the region. Up until today, sugar wax is widely preferred by women as an all-natural way of removing unwanted body hair. This traditional technique is now commonly offered in spas or waxing salons as an alternative choice to regular waxing.
All-natural edible sugar paste. The ingredients in creating a sugar wax mixture can be easily derived using sugar, water, and lemon juice. Essential oils can be added too. For reference, a DIY sugaring recipe can be searched online.
Warm but never hot. Keeping the sugar wax in a lukewarm temperature allows it to be pliable and easy to work with. The process involves spreading the mixture onto the skin and then stripped off in the direction of the hair growth.
Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Honey (and sugar) has medicinal and antimicrobial property. Thus, it prevents breeding of bacteria in the container. The small blob can be used over and over on different areas of the body but must never be used with other clients to avoid cross-contamination.
Non sticky. The candy-like water-soluble paste does not stick to the skin compared to the chemical residue found in wax. It gives mild exfoliation by removing dead skin cells. Once the treatment is over, the skin is then washed off with plain water.
Less pain. Less irritation. Sugars/Honey doesn’t only possess antibacterial agents but anti-inflammatory properties as well. The all-natural ingredients make it safe for those with sensitive skin.
Slow regrowth and reduced hair follicles. Compared to the effects of shaving, there is no razor bumps or coarser hair strands during regrowth. Thinner and sparse hair regrowth is a noticeable result with regular sugaring sessions. With successful hair extraction, the hair-free appearance can last up to 6 weeks.
Temporary to permanent. Since this method can remove very short hair at its early regrowth phase, frequent sugaring makes it possible for follicles to stop growing hair permanently.
