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.
