What is Body Sugaring?
Body sugaring is an ancient Egyptian method of hair removal using a 100% natural paste of sugar, lemon and water. It is a safe and natural way to remove unwanted hair for today’s men and women. the sugar paste is never re-used and we will only ever put a clean implement into the jar of paste.
Your technician will apply the sugar paste by hand against your hair growth so that when the hair is removed in a flicking motion it’s pulled out by the follicle in the direction of hair growth. This drastically reduces the occurrence of hair breakage, painful ingrown hairs, and also allows us to remove smaller, harder to grab hairs.

Pre and Post Sugar Care
Sugar paste is safe for all skin types, even the most sensitive! Since the sugar never adheres to live skin cells, only the dead cells will be removed acting as a gentle exfoliation, which is why we ask that you not exfoliate your skin the day before your service. We advise that you also not time your appointment to coincide with your menstrual cycle as it is a period when you are most sensitive. You should also avoid using any creams or lotions on the day of your appointment.
Between sugaring appointments it’s important to keep the sugared areas exfoliated and moisturized, although exfoliation should not be done until 24 hours after sugaring. Ask your technician what exfoliation and moisturizing system would be best for you.
Things to avoid after your appointment:
- Scented creams/lotions
- Deodorant if you had your underarms sugared
- Heat, such as baths/steam rooms
- Direct sunlight or tanning beds
- Perspiration. Let this be your excuse to skip going to the gym!
