Body Sugaring For Pregnant Women - Is It Safe?
Updated: Nov 30, 2019
One of the things that you’ll notice during pregnancy is that your hair will grow at a faster rate, thicker, and darker. All thanks to your hormones! Choosing the healthiest option for your baby and body is important, while also keeping yourselves groomed. Many people nowadays have moved from waxing to body sugaring, but could this be a safe service to receive during pregnancy? Let’s find out!
Why is body sugaring safe?
Body sugaring is a natural way to remove unwanted hair and a completely safe process for mom and for baby. The reason has a lot to do with the paste we’re using. Our sugar paste is made only from lemon, water, and sugar. It does not contain any harsh chemicals that can seep into the skin and cause harm to the baby.
Another thing to look at is the hygiene of the treatment. It is such a nightmare for mom-to be to have contracted bacteria from other women, especially if you’re having a Brazilian wax. This might come from double dipping or unsterile tools used during waxing. It is scientifically proven that bacteria breed in wax while sugar is bacteria resistant. Our sugaring treatment is also done in the ancient ways without using strips which prevent double dipping. So you can rest assure that sugaring treatment is hygienic and definitely more superior than waxing.
Do I need to take any precautions?
During pregnancy, you will have more blood pumping around your body which can also mean better circulation to the skin. This of course will cause a much more intense feeling when the hair and sugar are finally removed. Besides, your skin will become far more sensitive. You need to be prepared because the increased sensitivity might also lead to an increased risk of skin irritation. Body sugaring treatment is the best choice in reducing the risks of skin irritation because the paste doesn’t stick to the skin. Instead, it only sticks to the hair that needs to be removed.
Keep in mind that sugaring treatment is generally safe for pregnant women as long as you’re past your 1st trimester in a healthy pregnancy :) However, it is best to consult with your obstetrician especially if you’re experiencing other health conditions such as high blood pressure or gestational diabetes. Your doctor should be able to give you the best advice on whether you will be able to remain bare under these conditions.
So ladies, are you ready to take the plunge to have a bare pregnant body? If your answer is yes, HiSUGARS is the place to be! ;)
