Sugaring has become the new favourite hair removal method of choice for many who have tried it and seen the skin benefits and long term results. Sugaring is an organic and natural product care line that is very safe and skin friendly for even the most sensitive skin types. You can treat any area of the body from the face to any bikini line area, legs and underarms, to list the main areas. Sugaring is also just as suitable for men as it is for women.
So how does sugaring compare to waxing? In this blog post we will walk you through a step by step process of what the treatment entails. We will show you the importance of following the full circle conditioning programme as part of your treatment in order to give you the best results possible.
The first step is skin preparation for the treatment. We use Alexandria Professional Precept Skin Cleanser to cleanse the area of your skin that will be sugared to remove any oils, makeup or residue from the skin. Essential Tonic is then applied to prepare the area for sugaring and to allow the sugar paste adhere to the follicle. After drying the area, Vertal 6 Powder is applied to prevent the sugar from sticking to the skin and excess oil build up, and to make finer hairs more visible.
All-natural sugaring paste – made from sugar, water and lemon juice – is applied to your skin, and the hair is always removed in the natural direction of growth causing less stress to the follicle and more ease of extraction of the hair. This cause the regrowth to slow down making the treatment a more permanent solution to unwanted hair. Post treatment Mud Puddle – Hungarian mud mask is applied to soothe and detox the skin insuring instant healing. The mask helps to reduce redness before applying the final product.
After unwanted hair is removed, Restore Hydrating Lotion is applied to soften, repair, refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
For home care use the Phenomen-all – it is a balm that blends into an oil. It is recommended daily for treating and preventing ingrown hairs, softening skin cells to allow exfoliation to become more effective, to treat skin issues as it replenishes moisture and calms irritation on the skin. It is also great for nourishing cuticles, smooth stretch marks and scars.
Exfoliation is the key element to sugaring as the sugar adheres to dead skin. If the dead skin cells are not removed, the paste simply can’t get to the area to sugar it effectively. It also keeps the skin ultra smooth and feeling amazing.
For exfoliating before sugaring I recommend Salt Smoothie scrub. This is great for nourishing your skin with the powerful detoxifying benefits of Dead Sea salt combined with pure, natural oils. This is ideal to use in between sugaring treatments.
For facial exfoliation I would recommend using Sweet Cheeks – a sugar based face scrub that will replenish moisture while eliminating dead skin and debris. It is fragrance free, safe and effective for even the most sensitive skin types for your weekly exfoliating routine insuring you stay silky smooth with blemish free and flawless skin.
The Mud Puddle mud mask is an all-natural Hungarian mud, rich in essential minerals and collagen, deeply penetrates skin tissue to clear stored toxins, soothes eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
I would highly recommend using the mask as a weekly facial mask, for treating acne and blemishes. It helps to treat and prevent ingrown hairs as a detox mask in between sugaring treatments keeping your skin flawless and silky smooth.
