What to Expect When Having a Brazilian Sugaring

waxing-hair-removal.jpg

Are you nervous about the prospect of your first Brazilian sugaring? Most women are a little uncomfortable with the idea of someone seeing such a private area – especially someone they don’t know! Knowing what to expect from your first Brazilian sugaring helps put you at ease for the entire process. Consider this to be your handy guide for what to expect when you have your very first Brazilian sugaring.

Preparing for Your Brazilian Sugaring

You might be tempted to do a little landscaping before you arrive for your Brazilian sugaring. However, we would ask that you refrain from doing anything more than a simple trim if necessary. You want the hair to be at least ¼” long in order for the sugar mixture to grab hold of the whole hair. This means waiting roughly two to three weeks from the last time that you shaved or waxed this area.

What to Wear to Your Brazilian Sugaring

Make sure you wear clothes that are going to be easily removed once you arrive in the room. Keep in mind that you will have to put these clothes back on your body after the session is over. You will have some redness and possibly a little irritation in this area, so it’s best to avoid rough fabrics like denim. A loose cotton skirt is the ideal thing to wear on your bottom half when heading to the sugaring shop.

When You Arrive

Once you are called back for your appointment, you might be wondering what happens next. Your sugaring professional will show you how to get situated on the table and then leave you to get undressed. She may leave you with a hot towel to help you freshen up a bit and prepare the skin for sugaring. This makes most people feel significantly less self-conscious about their private areas before your professional comes to see you.

When she returns, you will assume a position with your feet together and knees apart to help her better see what she’s working with. The warm sugar paste will be applied to the area and flicked away until you’re beautiful and bare. A clean towel will help you wipe off the residue and you’ll be good to go!

Can I still get sugared when I have my period? How about when I’m pregnant?

The good news is that you can definitely get a Brazilian sugaring when you’re on your period. We just ask that you wear a tampon and tuck the string in. Because we are all females here, we won’t be shocked by this occurrence. You can even get a Brazilian while you’re pregnant if your doctor says it’s okay. Be aware that you might be more sensitive to pain when you’re on your period and when you’re pregnant.

Once you decide to go bare, we know that you’re going to love how beautiful you look and feel. At Bare Body Sugaring, we offer the highest quality body sugaring from an all-female staff. We know how to make you feel comfortable from the minute you walk through the door!

Can I Eliminate Ingrown Hair with Body Sugaring?

Underarms body sugaring.jpeg

Have you ever experienced the terrible appearance and discomfort that can be caused by ingrown hairs? They resemble acne or hives, but they fall somewhere in between the two when it comes to appearance. However, they are actually caused when a hair turns around and grows back into the skin. People with coarse and curly hair tend to be more prone to this type of uncomfortable growth, but anyone can experience it. The good news is that body sugaring may help to eliminate ingrown hairs altogether.

When compared to other methods of hair removal, sugaring produces the best results for people prone to ingrown hairs. Take a look at how this method of hair removal works out better than others!

No Broken Hairs

A hair that is cut very short through shaving or broken off through waxing has the opportunity to turn back around and become ingrown. Breaking off the hair and causing a sharp point to the end of it makes ingrown hairs far more likely. It also has a tendency to become trapped underneath the skin, making it impossible for the new hair to grow in properly. Getting these old hairs out so the new ones can grow in healthy can prove to be a painful extraction process. Fortunately, sugaring doesn’t break off hairs or cause a sharp point like shaving does.

No More Clogged Pores

Applying thick waxes and pastes to your skin can clog up the pores with dead cells and dirt. They can even clog the area around where the hair follicle is, making it impossible for the new hair to push through the pore. The buildup can force the hair to turn back around and re-enter the skin as an ingrown hair or to grow sideways.

One of the best parts of sugaring is that it tends to remove all of the dirt and buildup around the pores. The natural mixture of sugar, water, and lemon juice makes it simple for the skin to handle without allowing it to penetrate too deeply. This can help to make ingrown hairs far less likely for everyone.

Reduced Hair Growth

When you visit your sugaring professional on a regular basis, you will find that the hair in the affected area tends to grow back less frequently. Sugaring can help to collapse the follicle wall and make it impossible for new hair to grow. You will find that you experience fewer ingrown hairs simply because there is less hair growth. Bare and beautiful skin definitely has a number of benefits, but not having to suffer through ingrown hairs is one of them!

Can you eliminate ingrown hairs with body sugaring? Absolutely! There are a number of natural processes that make sugaring far more likely to eliminate ingrown hairs than other styles of hair removal such as waxing and shaving. When you’re ready to experience professional body sugaring, give Bare Body Sugaring a call! Our professionals will help you feel comfortable and at ease with your services so you can enjoy the benefits of being bare and beautiful!

Who Can Benefit from Body Sugaring?

Body skincare.jpg

The truth is that everyone could benefit from body sugaring. Bare and beautiful skin can help you to feel more confident for weeks to come. While it is beneficial to everyone, some people find that sugaring is far better for them than others. It can help to keep their skin healthier, particularly when compared to other hair removal methods like waxing. The potential benefits to sugaring are almost endless, but here are a few of the people who may benefit most from this hair removal technique.

People with Sensitive Skin

Sugaring is ideal for individuals with sensitive skin because it does not remove the top layer of the skin. The sugaring paste adheres only to the hair and dead skin cells. In comparison, waxing removes live skin cells as well. This can cause a lot of redness and irritation following the session, particularly if you are already prone to having sensitive skin. Sugaring eliminates this issue and allows you to be bare without the long-term irritation.

People with Eczema or Psoriasis

These skin conditions make a lot of beauty routines difficult. However, sugaring doesn’t have to be one of them. It is completely safe to sugar over eczema and psoriasis. It helps the skin to breathe better and unclogs pores that can contribute to the worsening of these conditions. The sugar also has antibacterial properties that can penetrate the areas affected by either of these skin conditions. It can help prevent infections in any wounds that you may have.

People with Skin Allergies

People who have a lot of allergies will really benefit from body sugaring. The paste used is only made up of three ingredients: sugar, lemon, and water. These ingredients are completely natural and are things that everyone has encountered before. Very few are allergic to these ingredients which makes the paste safe for almost everyone to apply.

Anyone Who Wants Long-Term Hair Removal

One of the best things about sugaring is that it can lead to long-term permanent hair removal. As you continuously remove the hair in its early growth stages, you eventually damage the follicle and follicle wall. A collapsed follicle wall cannot regrow the hair anymore. This leads to thinner hair after the first few sessions and possibly permanent hair removal as time passes. Sugaring is definitely beneficial to anyone and everyone who wants to be bare in the long run.

Body sugaring can be highly effective for certain people who are excluded from other hair removal methods like waxing. The gentler and more natural approach that sugaring can offer brings respite from a variety of symptoms associated with waxing. Because it is less irritating and gentler on the skin, so many more people are able to use this method of hair removal. Both men and women can benefit from going bare with sugaring.

If you’re ready to try going bare for the first time, you need to contact Bare Body Sugaring. We will help you to feel completely comfortable for your sugaring session so you can experience all of the benefits!

 

Tanning After Sugaring: Dos and Don’ts

Woman tanning.jpg

Do you have dreams of being both bare and bronze at the same time? Many of our clients love the feeling of having their unwanted hair removed, but they don’t want to give up their tanning sessions. There’s good news if you have been trying to figure out how you could reasonably expect to have both! Tanning and sugaring don’t have to be mutually exclusive when you know how to manage them both properly.

We’re here to help you make the most of your beautiful, bare body. That’s why we compiled this list of dos and don’ts for tanning with your new and luxurious skin. Take a look at what we recommend to help you become bare and bronze!

DON’T go tanning for the first day or two after sugaring.

Tanning and exposing yourself to the rays of the sun (or the tanning bed) can make your skin far more sensitive than it usually is. Unfortunately, sugaring can also make skin feel more sensitive for the first day or two following your session. The best thing you can do is to give your skin a break for the first 48 hours. It can heal and the sensitivity will decrease, allowing you to tan far more comfortably.

DON’T go tanning before your sugaring session.

Because tanning can make your skin more sensitive, we don’t recommend tanning just before your sugaring session either. It can be painful to have your hair removed from sunburnt and irritated skin. Be sure to take a break from the tanning bed for a day or two prior to your session.

DO consider spray tanning.

Your skin is going to be perfectly primed for spray tanning just a few days after your sugaring session. The skin will be rougher and in better shape from not having been shaved for several days or weeks. The spray tan often adheres to this better. Be sure to schedule this type of appointment just a couple days after your sugaring session and before you start to exfoliate your skin again.

DO wait to tan if you are prone to burning.

While most people would be fine to wait just two days before laying out in the sun, you may not want to do so if your skin is likely to burn. This can cause increased irritation in the areas you just had sugared, making them feel red and painful instead of beautiful. People with fair skin tend to be more susceptible to burning when they tan. You may also want to wait a full week after your last tanning session to be sugared just in case your skin burns. It’s always best to wait if you have an issue with skin that burns easily.

Tips to Care for Your Skin After Sugaring

Body skincare.jpg

Sugaring leaves your skin feeling smoother than ever before. It’s a gentle hair removal trend that doesn’t cause as much irritation as traditional waxing. You’re bound to love the feeling of being bare, waiting eagerly for your very next appointment. However, you should know what to do for your skin directly following your first (and even your fiftieth!) sugaring session. Your skin will likely need a little more tender love and care than it usually does to help minimize the redness and irritation that removing your hair can bring.

Make sure that you read all of these top tips to help you care for your skin after a sugaring session.

What to Avoid

The first thing that you need to know is what you cannot do after a sugaring session. All of these limitations will last for a full 24 hours following your hair removal. Avoiding these items can prevent you from causing more skin irritation than necessary. In some cases, it may even help you to avoid infection and small breakouts across the surface of your skin. Here are a few of the things that you don’t want to do following a sugaring session:

  • Go swimming at the beach, pool, or lake

  • Visit the sauna or any other spa amenity

  • Sign up for a massage

  • Head to the gym

  • Go tanning

  • Apply thick creams or oil products to skin

  • Scrub the skin or exfoliate it

It might seem a little counterintuitive, but this means that you should not be applying any lotions to the skin after treatment. They can cause further irritation to the skin and even spur breakouts. Deodorant should likewise be avoided if you had your armpits sugared.

While these things only need to be avoided for one day, many experts recommend waiting two days before resuming normal activities. This gives the skin the best chance to heal after your sugaring session.

What to Do

Once the first two days following your treatment have passed, you need to show your skin a little more love. There are a few things that you can do to help keep your bare body feeling soft and touchable. First, you need to make sure that you are regularly cleansing your skin with a deep exfoliating treatment several times each week. This keeps it ready and soft for your very next treatment.

Help to relieve any inflammation or irritation by soaking in a warm bath filled with Dead Sea Salts. Plan to spend at least thirty minutes lounging in the warm water with a great book in your hand. You’ll love the benefits that come along with this luxurious bath.

Make sure that you and your skin stay hydrated. This is another way to keep skin healthy in general, so be sure that you are paying close attention to how much lotion you use and water you drink.

If you want the highest quality body sugaring, then you need to book a session at Bare Body Sugaring. We have the expertise to help walk you through the entire process. Give us a call today to schedule your sugaring session!

Is Sugaring Safe for Sensitive Skin?

Legging sugaring.jpeg

Are you considering going bare but are worried how your skin will react? Many of our first-time clients are concerned because they’ve heard about how rough wax can be on sensitive skin. You might experience red and inflamed areas, itchy bumps, or any number of other issues. Those men and women with sensitive skin have to take special precautions in order to be waxed safely without all of the adverse side effects. However, there is even better news: sugaring is a much safer alternative for those who have sensitive skin.

If you have been on the fence about whether your sensitive skin can handle sugaring, now’s the time to try it! Check out these reasons why sugaring is ideal for those with sensitive skin.

Sugaring uses an all-natural approach

Sensitive skin is bound to love sugaring much more than it loves waxing. It all starts with the actual mixture itself. Sugaring uses only sugar, lemon juice, and water to create a paste that is capable of gently removing your hair. This means that you’re applying only all-natural ingredients to the skin. If you are sensitive to different chemicals and fragrances, this could be the ideal formula for your hair removal. As an added bonus, it is much easier to wash off than wax.

We leave your skin cells intact

When you apply wax to your skin, it adheres to your live skin cells and the hair strands. This presents a problem when you go to remove the strips because it pulls off your skin cells along with it. Removing these cells is a part of the reason why individuals with sensitive skin have a difficult time with waxing. However, this isn’t the case with sugaring.

The sugar mixture doesn’t actually adhere to your skin cells when applied. It binds to your hair strands but leaves the skin intact. When we remove the sugaring paste, this looser bond makes it less painful for you. This is one of the major reasons why men and women with sensitive skin prefer sugaring over other methods of hair removal. You still get the clean, smooth feeling of being bare but without the pain, inflammation, and rash.

It won’t be nearly as hot

Applying sugar to your body only requires the paste to be a very warm instead of burning hot. You will likely find that this is much more comfortable during application. Even after the sugaring session, it could result in less redness and fewer blisters compared to waxing. Wax needs to be extremely hot which leads to an uncomfortable experience in your session. It can also lead to more blistering, swelling, and redness for those with sensitive skin issues.

Sugaring is great for people who want to go bare but still struggle with sensitive skin. It’s made from all-natural ingredients and has a lot of perks that make it more comfortable and gentler on skin than waxing. Be sure to give Bare Body Sugaring a call today to schedule yourself for one of our professional body sugaring sessions!

How Long Do You Have to Grow Your Hair Before Sugaring?

You’ve finally decided that you’re ready to take the plunge and be sugared for the first time. You might be a little nervous at the prospect of removing your hair this way or super excited to try out going bare. Either way, most people want to know how quickly they can follow through on their decision. How soon can they schedule their sugaring session?

Scheduling your sugaring session has a lot to do with how long your hair is first. It has to be long enough to allow the sugar mixture to adhere to the hair and remove it. If you just shaved a few days ago, it isn’t going to be a great time for you to have your body sugared just yet. Everyone’s hair will grow back at different speeds, but we generally recommend that you wait two to three weeks from the time you last shaved.

sugar+paste.jpg

 

If you are used to waxing, you might need to wait a little longer than that. Usually, four to six weeks from your last wax treatment should be long enough for the hair to grow back enough to be sugared.

In general, you want the hair to be between 1/8” and ¼” long before you remove it with the traditional sugar mixture. This gives you the perfect length for the sugar to grip the hair without the hair being too long. Don’t worry about grabbing a tape measurer though. The hair should be roughly the length of a grain of rice before you head to the shop to have it sugared.

Staying Bare for Longer

If you love the look and feel of being bare, you might realize that you’re going to need to come back more regularly. We usually recommend coming back every four to six weeks to stick to a regular sugaring schedule.

Don’t stay away just to save a few dollars or you might undo all of the work we’re striving to complete for you. You need to get your hair sugared when it is closer to 1/8” long because it is still in the anagen phase of hair growth.

When you remove hair with sugar during this stage, it is more likely to take some of the follicle wall with it. This essentially collapses the follicle and prevents hair from growing in this spot again. The hair will gradually come back in thinner and grow slower than it did before. Over time, we are able to make your bare skin more permanent when you come back as scheduled. Make sure that you don’t wait too long to schedule another appointment with us!

When you’re ready to take the plunge, let your hair grow out and then come see us at Bare Body Sugaring! We have the experience to help you feel calm and comfortable while you become bare and beautiful. Give us a call today to schedule your sugar session and get started on your way to more beautiful skin!

Does Body Sugaring Hurt?

Do you love the idea of going bare but can’t bear the thought of the pain? You aren’t alone if your fear of pain is holding you back from your very first sugaring session. Many of our clients have some initial hesitation due to the previous experiences with wax or horror stories from their friends.

The truth is that body sugaring hurts a lot less than traditional waxing does because of the way the ingredients bond with your skin. If you still aren’t sure about what to expect from the experience, here is what most people are concerned about when it comes to their pain level.

 

Under arms sugaring.jpeg

Why does body sugaring hurt less?

The first thing that people want to know is why body sugaring is said to hurt less than waxing. To most people, this seems like an arbitrary statement because both of them remove the hair from your body in roughly the same manner. Behind the scenes, the difference between waxing and sugaring is rather significant.

The paste used for sugaring consists of sugar, lemon juice, and water. This paste doesn’t actually stick to your skin cells the same way that wax does. Removing the wax causes it to rip off skin cells along with the strip while body sugaring leaves those skin cells intact. It also removes the hair in the same direction that it grows, causing the tug to be less painful than it is with waxing.

The immediate pain is minimized, but so is the pain after the session is finished. Most people see their redness and any minor irritation disappear within hours. This is a great alternative for individuals with sensitive skin.

What if I’m concerned about pain?

No matter how many times you hear that it doesn’t hurt that badly, you may still be afraid of what is coming. When our clients are concerned about the pain, we advise them to take a couple of Advil before they come to their appointment. This can take the edge off any discomfort you may feel and minimize any irritation you experience afterward.

Will it be sore after I’m finished?

The irritation after a sugaring session is usually very minimal because it doesn’t harm the top layer of your live skin cells. However, you will still want to make sure that you are taking care of yourself properly. Don’t apply any lotions, gels, or creams to the areas you have sugared, particularly if they contain alcohol or fragrances. Be sure to wash your body thoroughly if you go to the gym or do any other sweaty activity in the first few days after your session.

Another tip for your sugaring session is to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water. A Brazilian sugaring can cause urine to be uncomfortable for a while, so you will want to dilute it with water as much as possible.

When you’re ready to take the plunge and become bare, it’s time to schedule your session at Bare Body Sugaring! We have the experience to make your first session successful, comfortable, and as pain-free as possible!  

Is Body Sugaring Safe During Pregnancy?

Pregnant women have a long list of things they can’t do anymore, particularly when it comes to salon services. They aren’t allowed to dye the roots of their hair, whiten their teeth, or lay in the tanning bed. Most women are still very concerned with keeping themselves groomed during their pregnancy and that includes removing unwanted body hair. In an attempt to choose the healthiest option for their body and their baby, women start by looking at body sugaring. Could this be a safe service to receive during your pregnancy?

There’s good news for women who want to stay bare while they bear their child. Body sugaring is a completely safe process for mom and for baby! Let’s take a closer look at why body sugaring is still a safe service for those who are interested in hair removal.

Pregnant woman.jpg

Why is body sugaring safe?

The reason body sugaring is safe during pregnancy has a lot to do with the paste we use. Body sugaring doesn’t require any harsh chemicals that can seep into the skin and cause harm to the baby. Instead, our formula consists of sugar, lemon juice, and water. You could even eat it if you really wanted to, but we don’t really recommend that. Body sugaring is a completely natural and safe way to remove the hair from your skin.

This could be a great thing because many women experience a lot of hair growth during their pregnancy. The hormone shift can cause your hair to grow longer, thicker, and darker. If you prefer the look and feel of bare skin, your new appearance could cause you some anxiety. Rest assured that you still have a safe option to get rid of your hair, but you have to know how to prepare.

Do I need to take any precautions?

It’s completely safe for you to have a sugaring session while carrying your baby, right up until the time you give birth. However, you should be prepared for the fact that you will have far more sensitivity when the hair is removed. Pregnant women have more blood pumping around their body which can also mean better circulation to the skin. This means that you will have a much more intense feeling when the hair and sugar are finally removed.

The increased sensitivity might also lead to an increased risk of skin irritation. Sugaring is one of the best choices for reducing your risk of skin irritation. The paste only sticks to the hair that needs to be removed instead of the skin around it. If you experience a lot of irritation, you might need to apply some high-quality lotion shortly after a session.

Keep in mind that body sugaring is generally safe for pregnant women, but you may want to consult with your doctor if you are experiencing other health conditions. For example, high blood pressure and gestational diabetes are common conditions during pregnancy. Your doctor should be able to give you the best advice on whether you will be able to remain bare under these conditions.

If you’re ready to take the plunge to have a bare pregnant body, be sure to contact Bare Body Sugaring to set up your services today!

How Long Does Body Sugaring Last?

If you have never been sugared before, you might be wondering just how long you can enjoy the sensation of completely smooth skin. We know how addictive sugaring can be once you get the first taste of bare and flawless skin. Prepare to mark your calendars for the very next session before you ever leave the shop. The question is, how long will it be before you need to pop into the sugaring shop again?

Bare+Body+Sugaring+Smooth+Skin.jpg

Everybody is a little different when it comes to the length of time between their sessions. In general, most people tend to go four to six weeks between their sessions. Much of the variation depends on the area of the body you are having sugared and how quickly your hair grows back.

People who take supplements like biotin or Sugar Bear Hair vitamins might need to get sugared more often. These supplements encourage rapid hair growth so you can grow thicker and fuller hair on your head, but it might catch on in other areas too. Even eating certain types of foods such as omega-3 fatty acids can make your hair grow faster. In most cases, there are too many variables to accurately determine the ideal length of time for every person to wait between their sugaring sessions.

You know that it’s time to head back to the shop for another sugaring when your hair is between 1/8 inch long and ¼ inch long. This is the perfect length for us to apply the all-natural paste to remove the hair. Your hair is still in the early stages of its growth and attached to the follicle wall. If we continuously remove hair while it is still in this stage of development, the follicle wall may eventually collapse.

Does that sound painful? It’s actually a reason to rejoice!

When the follicle wall begins to collapse in on itself, it means that you won’t be able to regrow hair in this spot. Your sugaring will become permanent at this stage, but it might take some time to get here. At any rate, your hair will at least start to grow back slower and much thinner than it did before you started getting sugared regularly. The key to achieving these desirable results is to stay on top of your sugaring sessions. Don’t let the hair grow too much in between sessions or you’ll miss out on the opportunity to make smooth skin permanent.

How long does body sugaring last? In a nutshell, most people will have smooth skin for roughly four to six weeks when they first start sugaring. Many people eventually see permanent results that mean they never have to be sugared again. Getting to a permanently bare state will take time, but it’s well worth it to have this smooth skin!

Let our experts take care of you at Bare Body Sugaring. We can make you feel relaxed and comfortable during the first few sessions until you become a seasoned pro!

Is Body Sugaring Permanent?

 

Nobody wants to deal with unwanted body hair for the rest of their life. Many are turning to
body sugaring because it offers an all-natural way to effectively and permanently remove your
hair. If you have been wondering whether there is a real way to get rid your leg hair for good,
it’s time for you to take a closer look at sugaring services. There’s definitely some hope on the
horizon for everyone who is tired of shaving and waxing on a regular basis.

Legging sugaring.jpeg


How does body sugaring become permanent?


Well, you won’t see permanent hair removal on your very first treatment. Most experts
recommend coming back every few weeks depending on the area of the body you are focused
on. The reason many people don’t see their sugaring transform into permanent hair loss is that
they wait too long between their treatments. You should really come in as soon as your hair
reaches 1/8 inch in length.


When your body hair is removed while it is still short, it takes much longer for it to grow back.
This is how you start to lengthen the time in between your treatments. Removing your hair
early in its growth cycle is also the key to making your body sugaring a permanent thing. You
must remove the hair during its anagen phase, the point where it is shortest both above and
beneath the surface of the skin.


During the anagen phase, the hair is usually still attached to the follicle wall. Short hairs that are
removed through sugaring often take their grip on the follicle wall with them. Piece by piece,
sugaring can eventually cause the follicle wall to collapse altogether.


You won’t be able to regrow hair without the follicle wall in place. Even if you don’t collapse the
follicle wall for every strand, it is highly likely that your hair will grow back much thinner than it
did previously. Eventually, this is how your body sugaring becomes a permanent solution to
unwanted hair growth.


Does waxing make hair removal permanent?


If you are interested in sugaring, you might wonder whether waxing can produce the same
results. Maybe you’ve tried it in the past, but it just didn’t work for you. It’s time to see one of
the main reasons why sugaring and waxing differ.


Waxing can’t produce the same permanent results as body sugaring. People who wax might
experience hair that doesn’t grow back as quickly, but it will always come back eventually. The
hair is required to be much longer before it can effectively be waxed. It must enter into the
catagen stage of growth where the follicle is much longer. At this stage, the hair has detached
from the follicle wall which means you won’t be able to collapse it over time.

Are you ready to permanently get rid of your unwanted body hair? Let Bare Body Sugaring start
you on the process to lasting change and permanent hair removal with this all-natural
technique!

What Should I Know Before Doing My First Body Sugaring?

Have you finally been convinced that body sugaring is the way to go when it comes to removing unwanted body hair? This process is a little different than the more prevalent waxing and shaving, but it has a unique approach that is gentler on your skin. An all-natural approach can make a significant difference in how amazing your skin feels after your services are completed.

Preparation is key to a successful sugaring, no matter where you decide to go. Many of these tips will apply regardless of what area you intend to have sugared. For a little more information on how you can best prepare yourself for this intense beauty ritual, take a look at these key tips below.

Legging sugaring.jpeg

Make sure the area is clean and oil-free

You don’t want to head straight from the gym to your sugaring appointment without a shower in between. Exfoliating the skin around the area is important, as is the need for the hair to be completely clean. Don’t apply body lotions or oils just before heading to your sugar shop. This makes it more difficult for the paste to adhere to your skin.

The hair needs to be a little long to be removed

If you only see stubble growing on your legs, it isn’t time to have them sugared just yet. The hair has to be a little on the long side for the paste to be able to grab it and remove it by the roots. Most experts will recommend that the hair be around ¼ inch long before you have it sugared. On the other hand, many people believe that you can effectively remove the hair as long as there are at least two weeks between your sugaring and your last shave or wax session.  

Plan to stay out of the gym

You won’t be heading to the gym or the tanning salon on the same day you get sugared. Your skin is going to be a little tender following the sugaring, so plan to head straight home for exfoliation. Even hot water might be too much for the sore skin to handle in the first 24 hours.

Try not to irritate the skin after the treatment

Applying fancy scrubs and lotions after the sugaring really isn’t necessary. In fact, adding too much friction to your skin following the treatment could result in even more inflammation and tenderness in that one area. Give it a day or two before you resume your skincare routine. If you plan to apply anything directly after your treatment, be sure to consult your sugaring expert first.

Getting your body sugared can be a great experience that leads to smoother skin and less hair growth over time. Bare Body Sugaring paste is made up of sugar, lemon juice, and water, 100% natural ingredients. As long as you come prepared, you can have a successful sugaring that will leave your skin feeling amazing for weeks to come.

Why Did the Brazilian Sugaring Become So Famous?

waxing-hair-removal.jpg

Getting a Brazilian wax is almost a rite of passage for women everywhere. Even men are starting to get in on this long-running trend with their own “manzilian” experience. As sugaring rises in popularity, it seems that the Brazilian style is still one of the most popular areas of the body to have done. Why did this one particular style of sugaring become so famous?

Take a look at some of these prominent reasons why Brazilian sugaring has become so popular!

Sugaring is a gentler formula

The Brazilian sugaring has a lot of things to boast about, starting with its all-natural ingredients. It isn’t uncommon to find people with extremely sensitive skin in this private area of the body. As a result, waxes, lotions, and other sources of hair removal can sometimes cause severe and painful irritation in your nether regions.

Sugaring can erase all of that with a much simpler concoction of sugar, lemon juice, and water. The gentler formula tends to have a much higher success rate for individuals with skin irritation issues.

Bacteria don’t breed in sugar

The benefit of sugaring is that it is also much more sanitary than waxing. Bacteria don’t have an opportunity to breed with the sugar content in our unique paste. This makes a Brazilian sugaring far cleaner than other hair removal methods. Particularly for sensitive areas like this, you don’t want to introduce more bacteria than is absolutely necessary.

The skin won’t be as irritated

Is there anything more painful than a newly-waxed pubic area? When your esthetician applies hot wax to your skin and removes it using the strips, it also removes the top layer of your skin cells. Sugaring leaves your skin completely intact, only removing the hair and its associated root. This means that the only areas that should be sore after a sugaring are the areas where the hair root was removed.

Sugaring cuts down on the amount of skin irritation and pain that you experience. It can even reduce the number of painful ingrown hairs in your pubic area.

You can avoid frequent sugarings after a while

Sugaring is well-known for removing the hair root and eventually decreasing the amount of hair that will grow back. Nobody wants to have more Brazilian waxing than they need to, so this is a definite perk. After a few sessions, you might find that your hair grows back much slower and needs less attention in between. The time between your sessions will eventually expand until you only have to have your Brazilian-area touched up every once in a while.

We at Bare Body Sugaring have done over 4,000 Brazilians and have perfected the art. If you’re ready to see just how the Brazilian sugaring became so famous, you need to give our salon a visit. We can help you to find a comfortable experience and get you back on the road in less than fifteen minutes. With all of this time to spare, you can move onto other areas of your life without worrying about your appearance in this very personal area.

Don’t Be Shy to Do Your Manscaping

Men, are you interested in cleaning up your appearance for the warmer weather? Some men might hesitate at the idea of sugaring because it seems too effeminate for them. However, this beauty ritual is great for both genders and can be a great alternative for men who prefer to take an all-natural approach to their appearance.

Is sugaring really a better alternative to waxing? This is what it boils down to for many men who are interested in removing the hair from their chest, legs, arms, or any other area of the body. You could even opt for a “manzilian” if you feel particularly brave on your first visit.

If you’ve been hesitant about what sugaring could do for your manscaping routine, take a look at these key reasons why many men are jumping aboard the sugaring bandwagon.

Sugaring is more natural and gentler on the skin

The truth is that sugaring is a natural alternative to wax that is gentler and easier for your skin. It’s no secret that removing the entire hair root can be rough on your skin. That’s why you need to take every precaution to make this an enjoyable experience for yourself. The ingredients and the process are inherently gentler than the alternative.

Consider the mixture that you would find in a traditional sugaring shop. It only contains a high content of sugar, lemon juice, and water mixed together. That’s all we really need to help you achieve a smooth and hairless façade. It doesn’t get much simpler or more natural than that.

Sugaring lasts longer than waxing

Do you want to take care of that unsightly body hair but are worried that you need to do it more regularly? The good news is that sugaring can keep you out of the chair for longer periods of time. It tends to last significantly longer than the traditional waxing form of hair removal.

Many men are curious whether that’s genuinely true before they are ready to make a commitment. First, both waxing and sugaring remove hair from the strand all the way to the root itself. This automatically reduces the amount of time you need to spend manscaping compared to shaving on a daily or semi-weekly basis.

Some experts claim that sugaring can mold to your skin much more closely than wax, allowing for a deeper pull that can extract the root more effectively. Because it can penetrate deeper into the skin, this process could potentially last longer than other versions of hair removal.

It’s important to consider that everyone’s hair regrowth will be slightly different, so we can’t accurately predict just how long your sugaring will last. However, we can promise that your skin will be perfectly smooth whenever you leave the shop. Manscaping can drastically change your appearance for the better, no matter what area of the body you decide to tackle first. A high percentage of Bare Body Sugaring clients are male, so don't be shy – you'll love the results!

Myths About Body Sugaring

Are you tempted to try body sugaring to remove that unwanted hair? Most people are tempted to believe the rumors they hear about body sugaring and its recent surge in popularity. We advertise it as a natural and healthy alternative to the usual body wax, but some of our clients aren’t so sure. Have you fallen victim to some of these common myths about body sugaring?

I’m going to be so sticky after my session

This is perhaps the most common complaint we hear from new clients who have never been sugared. It makes sense that you would think your skin might be extraordinarily sticky after being coated with our sugar mixture. What people don’t realize is that sugar is water-soluble and much easier to clean up than the traditional wax. You might be far stickier after a traditional waxing than you are after sugaring.

Sugaring is a new trend that doesn’t work

Would it surprise you to learn that sugaring actually came from the ancient Egyptians? That’s right. We’re actually using a centuries-old recipe of sugar, lemon juice, and water that has been perfected to remove your hair efficiently and with less pain than waxing.

There’s no way sugaring is sanitary

It’s understandable why some clients feel like sugaring may not be clean, but we take great pride in offering a service that is safe and sanitary to our clients. Bacteria actually cannot thrive in the high sugar content found in the paste we make. Furthermore, we never double dip into the sugar jar. We change our gloves every time we have to go back for a little more sugar to avoid contaminating the jar.

I’m going to look like a werewolf when my hair grows back

Have you heard the myth that your hair grows back fuller and thicker after having it removed with sugaring? This is one of the most common myths that we hear from clients who initially object to sugaring. There’s good news for those who are concerned about unsightly hair growth in the future. Shaving has more of a propensity to cause hair to grow back thicker in the future. In comparison, sugaring helps to dissolve your hair follicles over time and cause less hair growth in the long run.

Diabetes is going to keep me from sugaring

No, you won’t actually get a sugar high from this experience. Unless you taste or ingest the sugar from our jar (not something we recommend), the glucose isn’t going to affect your blood sugar levels. It’s safe for everyone, even if you have a condition that causes concern for your blood sugar levels.

Body sugaring is an excellent way to remove unwanted hair for both men and women. It’s time dispel these common myths that are holding you back from smoother and sexier skin. Bare Body Sugaring is proud to offer a gentle and natural hair removal. Won’t you give us a call today to see how we can help improve your beauty routine?

Why Is Sugaring Eyebrows A Thing?  

Well-groomed eyebrows are now a thing. No matter your gender identity, having nice eyebrows suits everyone.

There are many ways to groom the eyebrows. Standard methods are threading, tweezing, and waxing.

A new technique is slowly being adopted now known as ‘sugaring.’ This gives you more options on how you want your eyebrows done. But what exactly is sugaring?

Why Is Sugaring Eyebrows A Thing?  

Origin of Sugaring

The sugaring technique of removing body hair may not be very familiar in the United States. In East Africa, however, this technique has been used for thousands of years.  

It is well known that Arabic cultures and parts of North Africa have been sugaring for hundreds of years.

The renowned queen of Egypt Cleopatra had been known to use this technique. Her beautiful and smooth skin was believed to be the product of sugaring using various beauty products very rich in her time.

By the 1980s, sugaring reached Western culture when a Tunisian introduced it to England.

Function of Sugaring

Although not in a very familiar form, sugar can be made into a wax. It will have a syrupy texture being a thick compound. Imagine sugar wax being a soft caramel or honey.

The sticky and gooey texture of sugar wax is seen to be very similar to the products mentioned above.

This characteristic is what makes sugar wax very easy to apply to any part of the body. With this, the hair removal property becomes very easy and smooth.

The hair will cling to the wax making it easier to pull out from the root. One of the advantages of the solution -- among others -- is it’s soluble in water. Which means you only need water to wash away the wax after application.

Benefits of Sugaring

Unlike other wax, sugar wax does not contain any chemicals or artificial products. The ingredients of making the wax are so simple you can make it in your home. By using lemon juice and granulated sugar, you can create a mixture of sugar wax.

One of the benefits of sugaring is the regrown hair becomes lighter and finer. Sugaring on a regular basis on the same stop will stop the hair from growing after some time.

Also, sugaring can be applied to any area in the body, even the sensitive areas.

Warning of Sugaring

Warning of Sugaring

Like a typical wax, there is a relative pain associated with the removal of the hair. If you have waxed or tweezed that particular area before then, the pain will be minimal compared to the areas where it was applied for the first time.

Always be ready with ice to put on the area you have sugared. This is for the pain and the redness of the area to be eased.

The most important thing to remember, however, is to check the temperature of the sugar wax before applying.

It should not be too hot that it will burn the skin. Test a drop on your wrist preferably to check the temperature.
 

Reasons Why Body Sugaring is Better Than Waxing

If you are new to this term, body sugaring, and you have been a diehard supporter of the waxing community, then you better get ready for the trial of your life (or whole body for that matter). Today we will be looking at the two types of hair removal techniques that are most common these days - waxing and sugaring.

 

To avoid the long technical descriptions, body sugaring basically is the process a sugaring compound will be wiped on the body and this compound sticks to the hairs and basically detaches it from the skin without attaching to the skin itself. I know I got your attention. Read on!

Sugaring, Not Waxing

The Egyptians discovered this method, and I give all props to them for creating the most ingenious process of body hair removal that was ever discovered. Whereas waxing covers you with many chemicals that could be harmful to your skin, the sugaring element or paste that you wipe on the different areas of the body that you want to be "purified" is made from, get this, water, lemon, and (duh) sugar. Not that complicated. It's so basic in fact, that it can actually be eaten. TMI, right?

 

This soothing, natural method of hair elimination has been around for thousands of years and it is only recently people are starting to realize that this is so much better than waxing. When I said people, I meant for everyone because body sugaring is not only for women, but it can be used for everyone.

 

Other Benefits

Sugaring can be washed off very quickly with simple water, which means that after your session, you won't feel the "stickiness" of the sugar paste or anything for that matter. However, the waxing method needs lots of synthetic and artificial removers to eliminate the icky feeling, and all that chemicals pass through your skin. Wow!

 

Another benefit of body sugaring is that there is absolutely no risk of burning your skin. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for waxing, which sometimes leaves customers with traumatic experiences, and I'm not joking. Wax gets hot quickly, sometimes too hot. Sugaring doesn't have that issue.

 

What About Cons

Of course, some people have complained about body sugaring. We admit, for those few with very sensitive skin, the sugar itself can cause some slight irritation and allergic reaction. This reaction is called anaphylaxis. But don't be turned off, this is not dangerous in any way.

 

Even if you are just getting leg sugaring or underarm sugaring, this can nonetheless still affect you if you are sugar intolerant. There are preventive measures in place, like taking some anti-allergy tablets or even antihistamine meds will work fine.

What Now

What happens next totally depends on you. You are now the jury. I have presented the advantages and benefits of body sugaring versus traditional waxing. It is your decision to make.

 

Whether it's a comprehensive whole body sugaring or just leg sugaring, you decide your subsequent steps (pun intended). Find a center near you that specializes in this technique. Try it out, even for a simple hair removal session, and experience the difference.

Is Sugaring Technique Better than Waxing?

Hair removal is one of the regular skincare routines, but it can be taxing and a nuisance depending on the technique you use. It’s worse if you don’t know the right products or techniques to use. 

While shaving is also commonly used, it only gets rid of your hair for a short time, and then you have to shave again. This is where body sugaring comes in. 

The sugaring technique is one of the common and easy ways of getting rid of body hair. It is among the methods that leave the skin free of hair for longer.

Is Sugaring Technique Better than Waxing?

Understand the Sugaring Technique

Sugaring as a way of removing hair is a technique that has existed for centuries. It was practiced in early Egypt, and it has found its way to the modern world. 

This method uses a sugar, water and lemon juice mixture created to make a thick, wax-like paste. 

The paste is applied on the skin in the opposite direction of hair growth and then removed in the direction of natural hair growth. This sugaring technique is easy. 

All you need is to apply the paste with your hand – or use an applicator – and then flick it off.

You will need to master the flicking technique if you are to successfully remove hair. 

Sugaring or Waxing?

These are two very different hair removal techniques. One of the areas of difference is in the application and direction of removal. 

Unlike the sugaring technique, waxing involves wax that is applied in the direction of natural hair growth and removed against it. 

The sugar paste adheres to the hair follicle and not to the skin; making it less painful. It also ensures that there are no hair breakages. 

Wax, on the other hand, adheres to live skin cells and removal might cause breakages which in turn lead to ingrown hairs. With sugaring, the hair is removed with its root with less chances of breakages. 

Sugaring is gentle and comes in handy as an effective way to exfoliate. This is unlike waxing, which is quite painful. After the sugaring process, you will have a silky and smooth skin. 

Why Choose Sugaring over Other Methods?

Sugaring is easy and can be done at home. By sugaring, you reduce the chances of ingrown hair caused by hair breakages. Sugaring also improves your skin tone and texture. 

The sugaring technique can be used on any skin type as it is gentle. The mixture is all natural and has no allergens. Being water soluble, the mixture washes off from your skin with water. 

Shaving, on the other hand, does not leave your skin smooth, waxing is taxing and can lead to ingrown hair while laser removal is relatively expensive. Sugaring is thus a worthy choice.

Should You Sugar?

Should You Sugar?

You only need to learn the application and flicking technique, and you will be good to go. You can easily do this at home or seek the help of a professional for the few first times.

The Do’s And Don’ts of Bikini Line Sugaring

Bikini line sugaring is the latest trend that we all love. We have tried different kinds of hair removal treatments, and so far, sugaring gives us a good result. 

The effectiveness of sugaring to our body doesn't mean we are complacent about it. The natural process of sugaring, if done correctly won't give us headaches.

However, negligence on our part means harmful effects to the body. 

Similar to all other hair removal treatments, sugaring has its do's and don'ts. They are simple instructions, even a first grader can understand it.  

However, some clients are challenging the rules. So, the effects are unpleasant. 

The Do’s And Don’ts of Bikini Line Sugaring

Do's 

Wear loose-fitting clothes. Your skin is sensitive after the treatment and on the following days.

You should wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid any friction from the fabric to the skin as it may cause ingrown hairs and irritations. 

Exfoliate all the time. Exfoliate dry skin using salt scrubs or any soft scrubbing materials like loofah and glove-scrub.

Scrubbing and exfoliating reduce oil clogged in the pores. This process should be done 3 to 7 times week. Rub your scrubbing gel in the treated area so that the skin will loosen up. 

Drink plenty of water. Your sensitive skin cause irritation if the open follicles are experiencing discomforts due to the urine. 

Soak your body in a water mixed with dead sea salt. After, the sugaring appointment, soak your body in the shower. Running water is safe for your sensitive skin. You can do this in the next 24 to 58 hours. 

Use lubricant during the treatment. The lubricant serves as a barrier for your sensitive skin. 

Don’ts

Avoid scratching your skin. The only downside of sugaring every after session is the build-up of skin sensitivity.

If this happens, in the following days after the appointment you will feel the itchiness of the treated area. If it's possible, do not touch your skin. The irritation will only cause infections. 

Don't exercise after bikini line sugaring. Exercise causes your body to sweat, and if the sweat is in the treated area, this can cause irritation. Schedule your sugaring during your non-workout week. 

Avoid bathing in tubs. Steady water like in the tub harbors bacteria. Your sensitive skin will catch these bacteria and may cause infection. Use showers and lukewarm water instead.

Get away from tanning beds. Avoid using tanning beds especially if you had just your bikini line sugaring. The treated area is very sensitive to UV lights. Stay away from the sun as well after sugaring. 

Here’s What You Need To Do After Body Sugaring

There you go, the do's and don'ts during and after bikini line sugaring. The beauty of your skin is very important.

Hair removal treatments add the glow to our skin, but it's also prone to bacteria, sensitivity, and irritation. 

To stay beautiful and away from complications, follow the advice of your dermatologist. There's no harm in following orders from the experts.
