WAXING and SUGARING
History of sugaring
The earliest references to hair removal came from the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece. Early writings out of Mesopotamia tell of kings asking that women be brought to them clean and smooth. In other words, hairless. Ancient Egyptians placed a high importance on aesthetics and cosmetics. Egyptian hieroglyphics describe how slave girls serving Pharaoh were expected to remove their body hair. Hair on the body was considered unclean by the upper class. Possibly through a fortuitous accident, the method of using sugar for hair removal treatments was developed. Sugaring was considered an art and became a tradition that was passed down through generations.
Body sugaring is a safe and 100% natural method of hair removal. It is done with a paste that consists of only sugar, water and lemon juice. There are no chemical additives that can irritate the skin. Sugar is gentle enough for delicate skin and can be applied on any body part.
The sugar paste is molded on to the body against the direction of hair growth, then removed from the root with the direction of the hair growth with a flicking motion of the wrist. This method results in less hair breakage for a long lasting effect. Over time there is a reduction of hair growth, and the hair grows back thinner, finer and sparser.
Ouch Factor? Okay, it’s still pulling out hair from the root, but most people find it less painful. Sugar doesn’t stick to live skin cells, only to the hair and dead skin cells which means less irritation and discomfort. The result is just smooth skin!
