What's the difference between waxing and sugaring?
Waxing and sugaring are both effective ways to remove hair. What makes them different is the way they’re applied and their ingredients. Sugar wax is made from sugar, honey, lemon, water, and essential oils and our other waxes are made from beeswax honey and essential oils. Sugar wax can be removed with water whereas other waxes need an oil-based product.
Wax is applied in the direction of hair growth but removed against the grain of hair growth. When sugaring, the paste is removed in the same direction hair grows, putting less strain on the skin.
For the most effective waxing results, hair should be 1/4 inch long. Waxing may be uncomfortable but the discomfort does not last long (think pulling tape quickly off your arm)! It depends on your hair growth but waxing results typically last between 3-4 weeks.
