Sugaring

The Gentle Solution

Sugaring is a form of hair removal, dating back to ancient Egypt, that uses a thick sugar based paste to remove unwanted hair and dead skin cells, without adhering to live skin. It is generally more gentle than traditional waxing, while still providing the same results. Sugaring lasts anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks, but can vary with each individual.

In the process of sugaring, it does not require sticks or wax strips, a ball of sugar is applied and molded with the hand in opposite direction of hair growth. Then with a flick of the wrist, it is removed, taking the root of the hair and everything else with it, resulting in a reduction of hair growth over time. Sugaring is gentle enough to be used all over the body, and is a fantastic alternative for those who are unable to wax.

Similar to waxing, in order to get the most out of sugaring, the following should be avoided:

  • Sun/Heat- no tanning (in a bed or in the sun), hot tubs, saunas, hot showers, hot yoga…Please, if hot precedes it, just don’t do it. A warm, reasonably temperatured show is fine after a wax, encouraged even, just use a gentle, mild cleanser to remove any remaining residue left behind from sugaring.
  • Sun Warning!! Yes, even in Washington these rules still apply. If you are going on vacation and plan on laying out in the sun, or you just got back from one, we strongly advise planning your service at least 48 hours before going or when you come back. Also, please do no underestimate the power of or gawk at the thought of using sunscreen. Your skin will thank us later;)
  • Friction- no running, jogging, cycling, hiking, canoodling, tight clothing, etc.
  • Products- no oils, creams, lotions, or fragrances/perfumes immediately after the service. Give your skin some time to recover.
  • If you are using any product containing Retinol, Retin-A, AHA/BHA, we recommend that you stop using it 3 days prior to and after waxing
  • Absolutely no use of Accutane for a minimum of 6 months!
