You may or may not have heard about SUGARING, a newish hair removal technique on the block (which is ironically a very old practice). According to the “Encyclopedia of Hair,” Sugaring “originated in ancient times in the Middle East. It involves cooking up a sticky gel-like paste made from sugar, lemon juice, and water, and using it similarly to how wax is used for hair removal -- only this paste is organic, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic. The sweet substance removes the hair from the root without sticking to, or pulling at live skin cells, so it tends to be gentler than waxing.”

If you rock body hair, YOU DO YOU. For those who don’t, sugaring is an option regardless of hair texture or type and is often seen as a less painful alternative to threading and waxing.

Sugaring can be done anywhere on the body that you would get a wax. It may be worth a try if you have sensitive skin,  if you’re a fan of all-natural products, if you deal with razor bumps or ingrown hair, and/or if you can go to an experienced esthetician who uses quality sugaring paste.
