What is Sugaring?

Body Sugaring is an ancient technique first used by the Egyptians. It is all natural and organic resembling honey. Made out of just water, lemon and sugar with no chemical or artificial ingredients, which makes it edible!.

First the skin is cleansed, toned, and powdered. The sugar paste is then moulded against the hair growth and gently flicked in the direction of hair growth, which provides little to no irritation and no breakage. 

 The sugar paste is applied with a “hand held” method with a gloved hand and used over and over on the same client. So there is no worry over cross contamination or double dipping. Sugaring is truly the most hygienic and effective form of hair removal.
