Ironically, one of the best new ideas of the 21st century originates from 400 BC. Inspired by Alexander the Great. The women of Alexandria considered a hairless body to be the standard of beauty and youth. Body sugaring has evolved for more than 2,000 years to be the natural hair removal of choice for actors, models, athletes, swimmers and other body conscious men and women who love personal hygiene and grooming.
Minimalistic hair removal
The ancient art of sugaring has been revived to the forefront of the esthetics world in an ever-growing trend to use all natural products on clients’ precious skin. Sugaring uses only sugar, water and lemon to create the water-soluble paste that removes hair.
The hair is not only gone from the surface, but it is also removed from the root, which increases hair softness, and over time reduces hair growth. Sugaring only adheres to dead keratin cells and hair so there is no chance of skin damage, leaving the skin not only hairless, but also exfoliated and smooth.
The sugaring process has the technician apply the sugar paste in the opposite direction of the hair growth by molding it gently onto the skin, allowing the paste to seep into the hair follicle. It is then removed by flicking it off with the fingers in the same direction of the hair growth, allowing for the root to be extracted. There is no need for strips and sticks—just a small amount of sugar paste will complete an entire treatment.
