What is Hand Sugaring waxing?

Sugaring is a process during which the sugar paste is applied to the desired area and sticks and essentially removes hair without attaching it to the skin. The Sugaring paste can be applied at room temperature or heated to a lukewarm temperature, minimizing the risk of burns.

Benefits of waxing 

  • Body Sugaring is an all natural 3 ingredient hair removal paste made of
    Lemon Juice, Water and Cane sugar.
  • Sugaring hair removal originated in the middle east in ancient times as a
    way to remove unwanted body hair gently.
  •  There are two methods of body sugaring, hand sugaring and strip
  • Hand sugaring uses a thick ball of sugar paste (kind of like soft toffee)
    that is pushed onto the skin and it envelopes the hair follicle, it lubricates
    the hair and also sticks to any dead skin cells and it gently removes them
    from the pore when the paste is removed.
  •  Removing the paste in the direction of hair growth means less breakage,
    less ingrown hairs, removal of the hair and the root which over time
    leads to hair reduction.
  •  Hand sugar is used no warmer than body temperature so it means no
    burns and less irritation on the skin. It can be safely used to remove thick
    wiry hair or fine vellous hairs. It is fantastic on Brazilians, under arms and
    for facial hair removal and on legs or arms for those with extensive
    ingrowns or who suffer with hair breakage from brittle hairs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Please ensure that the hairs are long enough for hand sugaring. Usually a minimum of around 0.75cm-1cm is the desired length for effectively removing the hair. If you have shaved your hairs, you will need to wait approximately 2 weeks before the hair is long enough for hand sugaring. 
  • Please stop exfoliating 3 days before your treatment.
  • Avoid gels, moisturizers and oils before you hand sugaring as it may interfere with hair removal.
  • Avoid tanning 24 hours before your hand sugaring.

It is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight, excessive exercise or heat such as saunas, scratching or touching the area and fake tan for 24 hours after your treatment.

Immediately after your treatment, make sure you wear loose clothing. This is to avoid sweat and friction, which might increase the risk of irritation.

Two to three days after your treatment is the perfect time to exfoliate. Your pores will have closed and the skin will have recovered. 

If you notice ingrown hairs after hand sugaring, leave them alone for at least 48 hours, then exfoliate the treated area gently. Do not pick at or squeeze your ingrown hairs as they could scar.
