What is Sugaring?
Sugaring is an ancient method of hair removal which uses 100% all natural products— raw sugar, lemon juice and water. The sugar is removed with the growth of hair instead of against hair growth, which prevents and helps improve ingrown hairs. This method is less painful then other forms of hair removal such as threading, waxing, shaving, and laser. Sugaring is good for those with sensitive skin due to the anti-bacterial properties of sugar, which prevents skin reactions. It is water soluble unlike wax and due to the citric acid in the lemon, there is no residue build up on the skin.
The sugar is not hot unlike wax, which can burn the skin and cause welts and tearing of the skin when removed. With sugaring, there is no strip used and because it’s water soluble, this form of hair removal is eco friendly! Sugaring is 100% sanitary, so yes, that means no double dipping.
8 reasons why Sugaring is better
Sugar Formulas are 100% natural.
There are no chemical additives, no wax resins as a "cheat add-in", and no essential oils as adding oils has no value for sugaring to extract body hair. Also, we could not endorse that the sugar pastes are deliciously edible if there were additives that could cause adverse reactions to some individuals. Safe aesthetics in sugaring is a very fundamental factor at Saba's Sugaring.
Sugar Pastes do not stick to live skin cells.
Sugar paste gently exfoliates only dead skin cells resulting in a much safer method of hair removal, even on delicate skin tissue areas like eyebrows and bikinis.
Sugaring is economical.
Most clients see an immediate improvement, after the first or second sugaring session, in body hair refinement and in many cases diminishment while improving the condition of their skin without the big $$$ tag associated with other body hair removal alternatives.
Sugar Pastes are 100% water-soluble.
There is no risk of damage or staining to client's clothes, and more importantly no damage to your skin. The sugar paste is easily washed away after sugaring with lukewarm water. You will leave your sugaring treatments feeling clean and smooth... one less thing for you to worry or think about!
The sugar paste is massaged into the skin by hand at lukewarm temperature.
No risk of burning your skin! This is where the sugaring magic begins to happen with our clients. When the sugar paste is massaged onto the skin, it allows the paste to seep into the follicles which in turn allows the body hair to "slide" out more comfortably for a complete extraction without body hair breakage.
Sugar Pastes are 100% hygienic.
We never re-use the sugar paste and always wear gloves on both hands. Sugar paste is always discarded after each client is treated. Another great benefit of Sugaring is that bacteria does not breed in high concentrates of sugar eliminating the possibility of cross contamination.
Pre & After Care System is very effective.
Pre-sugaring and after-sugaring care is essential to eliminate any chance of skin reaction from the actual extraction of body hair. But, that's only one crucial factor. The other relevance to Pre & After Care is to eliminate skin irritation due to improper skin care before and after sugaring for body hair removal. All Alexandria Professional™ products (our supplier of the sugar) have been formulated, tried and tested, and proven extremely safe and effective. None of our products are tested on animals, only humans with very pleasing results.
No need to shave between sugaring treatments and no need to let your hair grow, grow, grow.
Sugaring requires only 1/16" (2mm) of hair growth for body treatments, eliminating the long wait between salon visits and customer frustration.
