Sugaring Tutorial

Introduction

Sugaring is an ancient yet very effective method for removing hair from the body.  Similar to waxing, sugaring uses a paste that adheres to your unwanted hair for removal.

The main benefit of using sugaring over waxing is that the sugar paste does not cling to your skin cells.  This results in a much gentler removal process compared to waxing.

Getting Started

Ready the paste

There are two methods for preparing your sugar paste for use:

1. Remove a ping-pong ball sized amount of the sugaring paste.  If it appears very firm, you should knead it like putty in your hands until it is more gel like. This method is preferred to heating to avoid skin irritation or accidental burns.

2. If you desire, you may heat the sugaring paste.  A new jar should be heated in 5 sec increments.  If the jar is full, it should only take 5-10 seconds total to ready the paste.  Alternatively, you can heat the jar in a bowl of hot water, like heating a baby bottle.

Apply the paste

The hair growth direction and pattern varies from person to person, so be sure to check which way yours goes.

Remove the paste

To remove the paste & hair, quickly flick the paste in the opposite direction of the application (this will be the same direction as the hair growth).  Be careful to not pull the paste up from the skin, but instead flick the paste parallel to the skin.

Clean Up

To clean up, simply wash the sugared areas with warm water and soap.  The sugaring paste is water soluble so it should be an easy clean up.

Yes, it’s really that easy.
