Try sugaring over waxing for smoother skin.

If you’ve had bad experiences with waxing in the past, and as a result have stuck to shaving every few days, sugaring could be your perfect alternative!

Sugaring is a traditional hair removal technique that originates from Middle Eastern practices. Similar to waxing, this method uses a natural paste/gel substance that is made from water, sugar, lemon - and depending on your mixture - honey, salt and essential oils. 

Unlike waxing which contains resins which sticks to skin, this natural concoction only sticks to hair. By pulling at the follicle and not the skin, this will result in you having smoother skin, less ingrown hairs and no hyperpigmentation.

Sugaring hair removal is ideal for those with sensitive skin, it’s hypoallergenic and free of chemicals so won’t irritate your skin the way chemical wax can! (Hair removal wax containing resins can induce an allergic reaction.)

As well as being water soluble - making it an easy cleanup - the paste/gel can be used over areas the have just been pulled without fear of irritation. 

The only downside is hair needs to be grown to at least ⅛ inch in order to work effectively.

Consider trying sugaring next time you need to groom, it can be done in beauty salons or made in the ‘comfort’ of your home.
