sugaring and sugar waxing?
- In both cases, the primary ingredient is sugar. However, the main difference is that sugaring pastes are made to different consistencies with varying added ingredients.
- Sugaring is a technique. The sugaring paste is applied by hand to the area and removed by flicking the paste. This is mostly practised in the U.K by trained sugaring practitioners. This is the method people are referring to when they talk about the “Ancient Art of Sugaring”.
- Sugar waxing has taken this one step further to make application familiar to waxing. The sugar syrup is melted and applied warm with a spatula. Followed by placing a strip and pulling it off against the direction of the growth. No training is required as the technique is easy and the product is safe to use. This is the same method as that used in waxing.
- Many people seek the quality of treatment that sugaring provides but aren’t always able to get to a salon for a treatment. Sugar waxing utilises the gentle and effective ingredients of sugaring and provides it in a system that can be used by anyone in the comfort of their own home.
So if you are seeking the quality of sugaring treatment but are unable to book an appointment or find a local aesthetician who can do it, try sugar waxing. However be sure to check the ingredients. Some sugar waxes are made with other resins and chemicals to make them effective. Proper sugar waxes should not contain anything more than sugar, water and a citric acid (although us clever clogs at Sugar StripEase make it with just sugar and water so that it is extra gentle on the skin. But that’s our special secret)
