Sugaring: what is it to you? Just your regular hair removal? Or is sugaring a lot more than that? At Bare Body Sugaring, we know sugaring is much more than just being free of hair.
Sugaring also has personal care benefits! If you’ve received a sugaring service in the past, you might already know sugaring is an extremely efficient exfoliant. As the hair is flicked away, so are all dead skin cells. That leaves behind baby soft, smooth skin. If you’re receiving consistent sugaring, consider this. One time per month you come by for hair removal and your skin receives that fresh glow once again.
Sooth Skin Irritation
Our first skincare advice is for soothing skin irritation. If you see red bumps on the skin, we suggest an oatmeal paste treatment. There are pre-made variants you can buy in grocery stores or drugstores, which you ought to use as instructed on the packaging. For a DIY method, what we love is crushing up oats and blending that with water to create a paste. Apply it to the irritated region. Allow that to sink into the skin like a mask. As it dries, rinse the mixture away. Also, if you have a tub, add oatmeal to the bath water for an at-home spa experience. Bear in mind that oatmeal bits may clog your bathtub; therefore, plan accordingly by utilizing a filter bag, tea infuser, or strainer over the drain. In order to enhance the mood with a little aromatherapy, use lavender buds as well! The relaxing and restorative properties of lavender wash your cares completely away.
Pay attention to your body
Secondly, pay close attention to your body. If you see ingrown hairs or red bumps, be your own skin care sleuth. Do you see fabric from your clothing rubbing against the skin uncomfortably? That might be the culprit! Try to wear a breathable material or fit of clothing which matches your curves and angles. See if there’s an improvement. Always be open to any adjustments and speak with your sugarist if you need advice. Most of us have experienced these problems ourselves and we’re trained to support your beauty care needs.
Bathe before your service
Thirdly, for best results for hair removal, bathe before the appointment, so the skin is free from any contaminants which might sneak into your newly hair-free pores. For up to 24 hours, try your best to avoid activities which cause sweat or friction to the skin. This may result in needing that oatmeal bath we talked about earlier, and healing may take up to 4 days. We know it may be difficult to resist a consistent exercise routine or additional vigorous activities. The smartest choice includes waiting one day before playing. The day after the appointment, follow all aftercare guidelines by showering and delicately exfoliating the region which was sugared. It’ll help the skin’s natural restorative process.
