Sugaring

What is body sugaring?

Sugaring is the classic marriage of holistic care and removal.  It is a much gentler, safer, and truly progressive method of hair removal for all parts of the body.  It is effective on all skin types and hair textures for both men and women.  The sugaring paste used is a blend of natural ingredients with no chemical additives, so there is no harmful side effects.  Sugaring will remove dead skin cells leaving the skin soft, silky and healthy.  You will find that sugaring is a quick, natural, effective, and sanitary way to have healthy, beautiful, smooth skin.

Sugar is natural:

Body sugaring paste is made up from natural ingredients with no harmful; side effects caused by allergic reactions.  It is so natural you can eat it!

Body Sugaring is sanitary:

The sugaring paste is hypoallergenic and does not clog pores.  Due to the high concentration of sugar, bacteria cannot breed in the sugar paste.  

Body Sugaring can extract short hairs:

Body sugaring requires less than 1/16th inches or four to seven days after shaving.  

Body Sugaring will not break hairs:

Sugar paste wraps around the hair shaft making it pliable, while seeping below the mouth of the follicle and lubricating the hair to make the extraction more complete and gentle.  The hair is eased out of the follicle only in the direction of growth, which helps extract the hair intact.

Sugar paste is cooler than wax:

Sugar paste is applied at body's temperature making it safe for all areas.  It is even safe for veriscose veins.  It will not increase blood supply.

Sugar is easier to clean up:

Sugar is water soluble and easily cleaned up with water from both you and your clothes. 

Sugar will not stick to the skin:

Live skin cells are wet and because sugar is water soluble, it will not adhere to live skin cells.  Safe to perform sugaring on skin with dry eczema and psoriasis.  Less discomfort for you and less trauma to the skin.

Body Sugaring promotes healthy skin:

Sugaring exfoliates dead skin cells and leaves your skin smooth and silky.

Sugar never dries.

Pre and Post Care

Prepping:

  • We recommend three weeks of hair growth prior to appointment.

  • Make sure your hair is at least the length of a pencil tip.

  • Loose clothing to prevent chafing and drink lots of water.

  • Do not workout or drink any caffeine prior to service as it may make sensitivity more intense during your session.

  • Trim down if it's longer than a pencil tip length.

  • Please come free of lotion or oil on your skin.

  • Exfoliate the day before to lift of dead skin cells 

Post Care:
  • For the first 24-48 hours after your service.  It is recommended that you avoid tight clothing, hot baths/tubs, sauna/steam rooms, sun exposure/tanning beds, perfumes/scented moisturizers & exercise that would involve excessive sweating.
  • Exfoliate 2-3x weekly to prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Recommended to take "salt" baths 3x week for exfoliation.
