How Sugaring Works

The body sugaring method of hair removal is originally considered to be an ancient Egyptian art and has been in use since 1900 BC. It was even purportedly used by Cleopatra herself! Body Sugaring is a method of hair removal using 100% natural paste made up of only sugar, lemon, and water. The sugar paste is applied by hand against the direction of hair growth and removed in the same direction of hair growth. This drastically reduces the occurrence of hair breakage and painful ingrown hairs. It also allows for the removal of smaller hair that is typically hard to remove using other hair removal methods.Your treatment, your sugar! There's no need to worry about double-dipping! After each service, the sugar is disposed of. Also, the sugar paste is not hot, therefore it will never burn your skin.
