Sugaring and Waxing Tips
Spring is in the air, time to remove your winter hair. Winter has come to an end and Spring like weather is just around the corner. This winter may have left you with a little extra hair. The dark days can be the perfect time for unsightly hairs to hide only to reveal themselves without warning as the Spring sun starts to shine. It’s the perfect time to emerge from hibernation and start fresh for the Spring.
• Let it grow out. – now is the perfect time to let those underarms or legs grow out for a smooth summer waxing/sugaring routine. While we’re still wearing jeans and long sleeves it only takes about 5-10 days to grow out underarms and 2-3 weeks for legs.
• Exfoliate! – Body scrubs or body brushes are the perfect way to shed your winter skin and prepare for your hair removal. Give your self a scrub down the day before your waxing/sugaring appointment.
• Skip the tanning salon. – Remember, no tanning 24 hours before or after your hair removal to avoid irritation. If you plan on getting a spray tan, make sure you do it the day after your wax/sugaring .
• Spring Breaking? – We recommend waxing 2 days before your trip for best results.
Waxing: A relatively quick procedure with results that can last up to six weeks, waxing requires a technician to pull the entire hair follicle from its root using a heated, resin-based wax.
Body sugaring: Similar to the waxing process, modern body sugaring involves cloaking a patch of hair in a sweet, sticky solution––typically made from sugar, lemon juice, and water––and then pulling out the hair. Most people find sugaring less painful than waxing, and the technique naturally exfoliates the skin. Since it’s safe for sensitive skin, sugaring has gained popularity for those removing hair in the bikini zone, above the lip, or on the chest.
