Sugaring is a natural, hypoallergenic way to remove hair. The paste is applied directly on the skin at body temperature, which minimizes the risks of burns. Unlike many wax formulas, the sugar paste is made from three ingredients you likely have stored in your kitchen- lemon, water, and sugar. These ingredients also happen to be great skin exfoliators, leaving skin soft and smooth after the session. Sugaring paste is applied directly against the hair growth and flicked off in the direction of growth. The reason this is so significant is because bending the hair and taking it out against its growth pattern usually leads to a lot of breakage, and that is what causes in grown hairs. If you have very sensitive skin, the type that gets red at the slightest touch, sugaring is probably your best bet. Not only is sugaring a gentler, all natural way to remove hair, there is generally less redness and irritation associated with it, making it great for people who might have sensitive skin or certain allergies.
