What is Sugar paste and how does it compare to regular Wax?
Sugar Paste is made from carefully cooking Cane Sugar, Lemon Juice and Water to a candy texture. It is completely edible until used!
Also Sugar has a natural antimicrobial component that can ward away bacteria.
Wax is a petroleum product, it can grow bacteria, and can easily be contaminated by double dipping.
Many clients have sworn that sugaring hurts less than traditional waxing!
How do you use Sugar Paste?
Using Nitrile gloves, I skillfully removed a ball of paste and apply it to dry powdered skin.
Once the Sugar Paste gets too thick to use, I simply throw it away with the glove.
If I need more to finish the service I replace my glove and grab some more, this ensures NO double dipping!
How long does the hair need to be?
Ideally the longer the better, so after shaving 2-3 weeks growth is best.
After trimming, 1-2 weeks is usually enough!
The hair needs to be at LEAST the length of a grain of rice (¼ inch).
Can I be sugared if bleeding or pregnant?
Absolutely yes! The only risk is the body can be more sensitive.
I can work around the use of a tampon or a cup, no problem!
Also I take extra time and make sure you are comfortable, and the back of my bed can be raised to create a more comfortable experience if pregnant.
What if I have sensitive skin?
Sugar Paste is PERFECT for sensitive skin. As it does not adhere to the skin, rather just sticks to the hair! So there is usually a bit of pink skin for an hour or so after but it reduces quickly!
Lots of sensitive clients have reached out after, saying how they aren’t tender or experiencing a burning sensation compared to a regular wax!
How do I prepare for my sugaring service?
I always ask clients to exfoliate with an appropriate scrub (not a mitt or luffa as they can contain bacteria) 24 hours before.
No lotion, or oils on the skin the day of, and wash the skin with gentle cleanser.
Please eat something at least 2 hours before service, and hydrate after.
Sugaring sunburned skin, or broken skin is not possible.
How do I take care of my sugared skin?
Wait 24 hours before working out, swimming, or sunbathing.
Exfoliate 24-48 hours after the service and then daily moving forward, this eliminates 90% chance of getting ingrowns and dry skin.
Apply a gentle aloe based lotion, or skin oil daily to keep the skin supple and hydrated.
Please consider that hair removal may cause adverse reactions to the skin. If you have any current skin irritations, they may worsen after service. Please be up front about anything at each appointment so we may lesson the risk of further reactions. When you are on your cycle, your skin may be more sensitive. Make sure to eat before each appointment to lesson the adrenaline response. Applying makeup after any face service may cause blemishes.
