Sugaring vs Waxing
Sugar vs Wax what is the difference?
Quite a bit actually…
Body wax products are very different from sugaring products. Sugaring requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing legs and bodies. For instance…
Waxing products adhere to skin cells…
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells on legs and bodies.
Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind glowing skin.
Additionally, because sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if it is accidentally flicked on a clothes or residue is left on skin.
Waxing pulls hair against its natural direction of growth…
When waxing, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth.
With the sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root allowing the root to remove completely without breaking and with less pain.
This will make a world of difference in comfort. This is especially important for clients who have suffered in the past with waxing in sensitive areas.
The healthy difference between all natural sugaring versus waxing…
Sugaring Paste is all natural. In fact, the only ingredients are sugar, water and lemon. That’s it. It’s even edible and delicious, and it’s a wonderful treatment for the skin.
Most products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from resins and are not nearly as bio-degratable. They also create more waste being applied with wood sticks and pellon strips that end up in landfills.
No risk of burning sensitive skin areas with sugaring…
Waxing the legs or any area requires hot wax which done improperly risks burning sensitive skin.
Sugaring is done at body temperature. There’s no need for heat. Sugaring treatment adheres to the hair, not the skin, and lubricates the root for easier removal from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, sugaring means a much less damaging experience for you.
What sugaring will and will not do…
Sugaring will help:
• eliminate ingrown hairs
• prevent new ingrown hairs
• extract all hair colors and textures
• successfully treat all skin types and colors
• improve the skin tone and texture
Sugaring will not:
• burn the skin
• damage the dermal cells
• “pit” the delicate facial skin cells
• scar the follicle mouth or surrounding area
• promote cross contamination
