If you have sensitive skin, you may have troubles with waxing. You could break out, suffer from inflammation, or experience intense pain. Fortunately, sugar waxing is available as an alternative to traditional waxing. Sugaring is a gentler method, that can be perfect for people with sensitive skin.
To understand why sugaring works for people with sensitive skin, it is important to know how it works.
How Sugar Waxing Works
Sugaring is the organic method of hair removal. A sugar paste is created using sugar, water, essential oils, and lemon juice. Sugar paste is warmed but at a lower temperature than normal waxing. Hair is removed along the grain, which makes it less painful. Only dead skin is removed unlike additional live skin in normal waxing.
Sugar waxing is not abrasive, making it more likely to work well for sensitive skin. Tell your esthetician if you have any allergies to essential oils. Your Waxy Club performs high quality sugar waxing techniques in Portland, Oregon. Contact us to schedule an appointment for your sugar wax.
