This ancient hair removal method can be traced back to the Middle East and Africa and involved kneading a sticky paste by hand – honey was probably their first choice. Fortunately, in modern sugaring, there is no need to make such a mess!
No wonder sugaring has stood the test of time – it has so many advantages:
step 1 – Apply a small amount of sugaring paste against the direction of hair growth
step 2 – Rip off in the direction of hair growth with one quick hand movement
This is the opposite direction compared to traditional waxing.
1 – Optimal paste consistency depends on the climate and the season (air moisture and temperature).
2 – Nitrile gloves are more hygienic and will stop your hands from overheating, affecting the paste’s consistency.
3 – Pre-treatment skin cleansing is key. Oils from moisturizer or body lotion can make the treatment much more difficult- remember to use an absorbent powder.
