Body sugaring?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody tried body sugaring? From what I've read, it is less painful then waxing because the sugar only sticks to the hair and not the skin.


Any thoughts/advice/comments to share?

I've never heard of it either. Here's a little info I just found on a quick search...


Body Sugar vs. Wax


Body Sugar is warm, not hot. Hot wax can burn the skin and cause tissue to swell, making hair removal difficult. Body Sugar is only warm; you'll never burn your skin.


Body Sugar won't stick to live skin cells. It removes dead skin cells so it also exfoliates your skin during the treatment.


Wax adheres directly to the skin cells, which makes waxing painful and irritating. Wax cannot be applied to an area more than twice. Body Sugar can be used over and over again in the same area to remove stubborn hairs.


Body Sugar rinses off easily with water. Wax residue must be removed with either chemicals or heavy oils.


Body Sugar leaves skin smooth and silky!


How often will I require Body Sugaring Treatments?

Your consultant will be pleased to discuss free of charge and without obligation a program of treatments to your specific needs. Typically, appointments 4-6 weeks apart, since individual hair growth varies from one person to another.


Is the Process of Hair Removal Permanent?

While there are benefits of improved skin texture and less vigorous re-growth of unwanted hair after Body Sugaring, it is impossible to determine if it will lead to permanency. Body Sugaring offers distinctive advantages over alternative methods of depilation.



Preparing Your Skin for Treatment

Please do not use a razor or depilatory creams between appointments, as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth and to have smooth skin. Regularly hydrating and exfoliating your skin between sugaring treatments is just as important as receiving treatment. You will receive the best results if your skin is healthy.


If this is your first experience, please allow hair to grow 5-7 days prior to your appointment. Hair must be ¼ inch long. Hair being removed for the first time may be more resistent. Afterwards, as the root becomes smaller, it will remove more easily as it thins. You may have small red spots on the skin for a few hours after Body Sugaring.


If you are pain-sensitive, please take your preference of painkiller 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This will make you relaxed.


Please shower to clean the skin of any access oils etc.


Do not wear any lotion, deodorant, oils, or other skin care products on the area you intend to have sugared.


Come for your sugaring treatment with clean dry skin.


Do not drink alcohol prior to your sugaring appointment. Do not expose the skin to sun 24 hours prior to your appointment and we cannot treat skin that is sunburned.


After Your Treatment

We suggest you avoid perfumed soaps and products with chemical irritants on sugared skin for 24 hours after treatment. Do not apply deodorant to underarms and avoid make-up for 12 hours after a sugaring treatment.

I havent tried sugaring, but we used to sell it at Shoppers. I always wax my eyebrows myself and I find you just get used to it and it stops hurting. I really dont think sugaring will be any less painful.

Threading hurts like a biotch to me, Marie I salute you for being able to withstand it! I've never sugared either but I've seen the kits at the store. When I use wax I get the Sally Hanson kit where the strips are pre-set with wax and there is no heating, you just rub them between your hands to warm them. Those work well for me but I may try the sugar as an experiment.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
