Using sugar to remove hair is an ancient technique. Body sugaring is a godsend to people who suffer from using other forms of hair removal that leave their skin raw, chafed, and pimpled. Body sugaring can be used with any skin type and is especially useful for sensitive skin where other forms of hair removal have proved painful and irritating.
What is your sensitive skin problem?
- Razor burn: Everyday Health tells us that there are many reasons for this red bumpy rash you get after shaving. These include aggravation from soap, dull razors, pushing to hard, or using a product that doesn’t provide the slip you need. I love these tips, but no matter what I do, when I shave my bikini area, I get razor burn…..so I stopped! Sugaring saved the day and eliminated all the painful bumps and redness so I can get into my bathing suit posthaste.
- Allergies: Many people suffer from allergic reactions to shaving products, depilatories (creams that remove hair, like Nair), and waxes. Body sugaring paste is made of products that are non allergenic…sugar, water, and sometimes some lemon. It just doesn’t incite an allergic reaction.
- Sensitive or acne prone skin: Some of us just have sensitivity issues. Even when it is not a product problem, the act of running a razor across our skin or ripping hair out creates major welts and unattractive reactions…just what we don’t want. Body sugaring is ideal for sensitive skin because we take the hair out in the direction it grows. Further, the sugar gets deeper into the root before removal so that it creates less of a reaction and is less painful.
- Eczema and Psoriasis: Dermascope recommends sugaring for these disorders, unless there is skin weeping. They recommend body sugaring, not only as a preferred body hair removal that doesn’t cause additional problems, but as a way to actually benefit the disordered skin. Body sugaring gently exfoliates the skin and has natural healing properties that allow the issues to be alleviated.
The bottom line is that body sugaring is great for all skin types. Body sugaring is also great for people who have found other hair removal aggravating. Try it out today.
