Sugaring Hair Removal Method | Better Than Waxing?
The sugaring hair removal method is more than likely the very first way, in the history of man, that people removed hair. Originally used in the ancient Egyptian days, sugaring is still around today and serves as a viable alternative to waxing. The best part is that it doesn’t cost much and can be performed at home.
Sugaring paste is made of sugar, water and lemon juice. It is applied at body temperature and will not burn the skin, a drawback with regular waxing products. Sugaring paste cleans up easily with water, and will never leave you feeling sticky like waxing. The paste also cannot adhere to live skin cells but does remove dead skin cells so you are not only removing hair, you’re exfoliating too.
Sugaring paste wraps around the hair while seeping into the follicle lubricating the hair making the extraction more gentle and complete. Wax hardens around the hair causing it to break off at the surface rather than pulling it out which leads to faster regrowth.
Sugaring paste also adheres to shorter hair (less than 1/16th of an inch) than waxing which requires letting the hair grow out at least ¼ inch before your next session. In addition, after several sugaring treatments the follicles begin to deplete, growing finer hair each time. And because you can extract shorter hair, it is possible this method can lead to permanency. In short, you will see superior results in just a few sugaring treatments.
