At this point, we are sure that you are all well versed on the differences between sugaring and waxing. However, just for Factoid/FYI Friday fun, we will go ahead and remind you of some of the luxuries sugaring has over waxing.
The major difference you will probably hear of when it comes to sugaring is that it does not actually adhere to skin cells the way hot wax does. Wax (made of resins) sticks anywhere it is applied to so when it comes to the skin, it can result in discomfort when the wax is pulled off.
Alexandria Professional Sugaring products don’t adhere to live skin cells when it is placed anywhere on the body. This makes for an easier and gentler hair removal procedure for both the technician and client. Not to mention sugaring is an easier cleanup process because the paste is water soluble and wipes away easily.
Another reason waxing can be found painful is because the hair is being pulled away from its natural direction of growth. Sugaring on the other hand, removes the hair in its natural direction of growth. This creates a more comfortable experience for the client and helps to soothe the hair follicle from the applied sugaring paste. Sugaring can also be a great alternative to waxing when it comes to sensitive areas on the body such as the bikini area, underarms, or facial area.
Another plus to the sugaring paste we use by Alexandria Professional is that it is all natural. The ingredients contained are pure sugar, water, and lemon. Not only is it a great treatment for the skin, but it’s also edible!
Here is a quick list of some of the benefits sugaring has:
- Stops ingrown hairs and prevents new ones from forming
- Can treat all skin types
- Strengthens skin tone and texture
- It won’t burn the skin or damage its cells
Don’t get us wrong, waxing is effective and safe, but everything is worth a try at least once!
