Traditional Wax or Body Sugar Which One Should You Choose?
Sugaring and Traditional waxing are two of the most popular options for hair removal; both will leave you silky smooth for weeks minus the razor burn. However, the two involve very different techniques for getting rid of hair, some of which might be better suited for specific skin types as well those with coarser textures. When deciding between sugaring and waxing, you'll want to make sure that the option you choose leaves you with buttery-smooth skin without lasting irritation or, worse, a rash.
What Is Sugaring? “Sugaring is a natural, hypoallergenic way to remove hair,” . “The paste is applied directly on the skin at body temperature, which minimizes the risks of burns.” Unlike many wax formulas, the sugaring paste is made from three ingredients you likely have stored in your kitchen—lemon, water, and sugar. These ingredients also happen to be great skin exfoliators, leaving skin soft and smooth after the session.
Another difference between sugaring and wax is that the sugaring paste is applied directly against the hair growth and flicked off in the direction of the growth. The reason this is so significant is because bending the hair and taking it out against its growth pattern usually leads to a lot of breakage, and that is what causes ingrown hairs.
What Is Waxing? From cleaned-up bikinis to everything-must-go Brazilians, waxing is still a go-to for many looking to temporarily remove hair and be smooth for weeks on end. There’s hard wax and soft wax, Soft wax requires a strip to remove, but hard wax does not. Like sugaring, hair is removed from the root when waxed, and grows back thinner and more sparse over time the more consistent your visits.
