Are you interested in removing unwanted hair from your body? Would you like smooth, hairless skin…naturally?
If you are interested in natural hair removal but want a less painful treatment that yields longer results, you might want to consider sugar wax. Read on to find out why.
What Is Sugar Wax?
Before we explain all the benefits of sugar wax, let’s first discuss briefly what it is.
Sugar wax is an all natural hair removal process that involves applying a sugar-based wax to the skin. When the wax is removed, your hair is removed with it.
Benefits Of Sugar Wax
There are many reasons to try sugar waxing over traditional waxing, including those listed below.
1. Natural Ingredients
While traditional wax that is used in salons often contains a number of strange chemical ingredients, sugar wax is clean enough to eat! Most sugar waxes — including ours — contain mainly sugar, and some form of citrus that acts a preservative.
With only natural ingredients involved, you can feel good about putting sugar wax on your skin!
2. No Risk Of Getting Burned
Have you ever been burned during a waxing treatment? If so, you know how painful it can be.
With sugar wax, you don’t have to worry about burns since the wax only has to be warmed to body temperature. No welts, no scars, just smooth skin!
3. Easier Clean Up
When you get a traditional wax treatment, it can sometimes be very difficult to remove the wax from your skin. Sometimes the removal process is downright painful!
One of the benefits of sugar wax is that it is much easier to remove from the skin.
Unlike regular wax, sugar wax is water soluble. It’s easy to clean up — no matter how long it’s been on the skin — and you aren’t left with a sticky feeling on your skin after the treatment is finished!
4. Less Irritation Post Treatment
A wax treatment that uses harsh chemicals such as plasticizers can leave your skin swollen, red, and irritated for days afterward. Since sugar wax doesn’t have to be as hot as regular wax, and since it’s all natural, there is less swelling post treatment.
You’ll also experience less irritation since sugar wax doesn’t stick to water-containing live cells. It only removes dead skin cells, meaning it will be less painful and will leave your skin softer and smoother.
5. Permanent Results
After just 3-4 back to back sugar wax treatments, you will notice a reduction in hair regrowth. Not long after that, the hair follicle will completely atrophy — meaning soon after you begin sugaring, you will have permanently smooth skin!
Get The Most Out Of Sugaring
Don’t Shave In Between Treatments
It will be tempting to shave as stubble grows in between visits. Remember, though, that when you shave, you cut the hair too short for it to be removed by the sugar wax. Basically, shaving is counterproductive to the hair removal process.
Exfoliate Between Treatments
Whether you use a dry brush or a shower scrub, exfoliating at least 3 times a week will help prevent ingrown hairs and make your skin smoother in between appointments.
Exfoliating is great, but you should skip it the day before, the day of, and the day after sugaring to avoid irritating your skin.
Avoid Lotion The Day Of
Lotion will condition the hair, making it more difficult for the sugar to grab and remove. For the same reason, you should also avoid deodorant if you’re using sugar wax on your underarms.
Avoid Tanning The Day Of And Day After
Tanning (either in a tanning bed or out in the sun) will make your skin more sensitive, which can lead to potential burns. Your skin will also be more susceptible to sunburns the day after the treatment. If you have to be outside, make sure to use a high SPF sunscreen.
Bring A Clean Shirt For After
If you’re having your chest or back sugar waxed, bring a clean shirt to change into afterward. Putting a dirty shirt back on can cause your hair follicles to become infected, which can lead to ingrown hairs that are painful and unsightly.
Take A Salt Water Bath After
A salt water bath will help detoxify the hair follicle and prevent infection and ingrown hairs. After your treatment, take a warm bath with half a cup of salt mixed in — it’ll be the perfect way to end the day!
