Sugaring vs Waxing
Sugaring is all-natural. The sugar is made up of lemon, water and sugar and this technique has been around since 1900bc.
It is applied to the skin, against the direction of the growth. This prevents hair shaft breaking, resulting in less ingrown and less discomfort.
The sugar is a natural exfoliant and applied to the skin at room temperature, negating the risk of burns and trauma. Sugar is water-soluble and will only adhere to the dead skin cells leaving your body supple and soft. The sugar container is a sterile environment preventing bacteria from breeding.
Waxing uses chemicals such as petroleum, paraffin and preservatives. These resins and preservatives are not water-soluble and will adhere to both live and dead skin cells, resulting in redness, irritation and occasional skin burns.
Wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth and removed in the opposite direction of the hair growth, resulting in breakage leading to ingrown hair and trauma to the follicle. Wax is heated at a high degree in order for the wax to be liquified resulting in risk of burns as well as making it more difficult and painful for removal. Wax also has the ability for bacteria to breed inside the tub.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I just got a Brazilian last night and it was my first sugaring experience.
Jenn was so gentle and made me feel very comfortable. SHe has a very strong attention to detail and got every last hair! I will never get waxed again or go to anyone else! I absolutely love it!! And so does my husband.
Jennifer did a great job! Her space is warm and inviting. I would recommend her services.
I saw Jen for the first time this weekend. She was really accommodating and made me feel at ease. I appreciated her attention to hygiene, and her attention to detail. I also loved that she sent me home with a little freebie exfoliating bar. The environment that she works in is also really calming. Definitly recommend.
