Sugaring (sugar waxing) is an ancient technique with origins in Egypt and ancient Greece. It is booming in popularity in Europe and has steadily grown more and more popular here at home in the States. Sugar can be applied by hand or using strips.
Sugaring is like waxing but is unique in that it removes the hair from the root almost 100% of the time. The ingredients in the sugar paste are so gentle, and the way that it is applied is so effective, that it rarely irritates the skin and is great for sensitive or allergy-prone skin types.
It is universally effective for all hair types and colors and you can use it on any part of your body and face. Sugar paste will not pull or irritate the skin; it will only pull on hair and will exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells.
With continuous use, sugaring reduces hair growth each time. The hair gradually grows back thinner and finer. How long you will stay hair-free depends on several factors, but you will see a much sparser re-growth already after the very first sugaring treatment. The average time between treatments is 4-6 weeks.
