FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We want you to fall in love with sugaring

WHAT IS "SUGARING"?

Sugaring is a method of hair removal. A professional Sugarist uses a sugar paste that consists of 3 ingredients of sugar, lemon, and water to remove unwanted hair.

SUGARING VS. WAXING?

  •  Sugar paste does not need to be applied at a hot temperature but can be applied at room temperature. Because of this, You are less likely to get burned. 

  • Sugar paste is pushed into the hair follicles with the Sugarists hands. It is more likely to attach to the root of the hair follicle and prevent breakage. It will avoid quicker regrowth and cause longer-lasting results. 

  • Sugar paste is an all-natural exfoliant and will leave the skin feeling soft and healthy.

  • Sugar paste is gentler than waxing and is excellent for sensitive skin. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET SUGARED?

We recommend getting sugared every 3-4 weeks until your regrowth becomes less. After some sugaring time, the regrowth will become minimum, and the visits can become less frequent. It can be determined by your Sugarist, as it varies for each client.

WHAT IF I AM A SHAVER AND WANT TO SWITCH TO SUGARING?

  • You must have at least 2-3 weeks of hair growth before your sugaring appointment. 

  • Do not revert to shaving in between appointments. It will deliver the best results from sugaring. 

WHAT IF I PREVIOUSLY GOT WAXED AND WANT TO SWITCH TO SUGARING?

Allow 4 weeks of regrowth before getting sugared.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY SUGARING APPOINTMENT?

  • We recommend that you do not use any shampoos, conditioners, moisturizing soaps, lotions, oils, and body wipes 24 hours before your appointment. 

  • Do not exfoliate the day before and day of treatment.

  • Do not apply deodorant if getting underarms sugared. 

  • Avoid exposure to the sun, sauna, jacuzzi, hot showers and workouts day of service. 

  • Relax and take a nice cool shower before your appointment to reduce your body temperature. 

  • Put an ice pack or a bag of frozen food on the area getting sugared before the appointment. 

  • Blast that AC in your car or home to cool yourself down. 

  • Wear cool and loose clothing to your appointment. 
     

WHAT CAN PREVENT ME FROM GETTING SUGARED?

  • Accutane: We recommend waiting six months after use. 

  • Rentin-A/Retinol: We recommend 25 days after use. 

  • Bruising, swelling, rashes, open sores, sunburn, cold sores & skin conditions: We recommend waiting for that area to heal and consult with your dermatologist before your sugaring appointment. 

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF SUGARED AREA POST TREATMENT? 

Avoid: 

  • Exfoliating the skin for 48 hours after treatment

  • Heat (including saunas, steam rooms, and hot yoga studios)

  • Beach or swimming pools (skip a day out on the beach for 48-72 hours after service.)

  • Direct sunlight, tanning beds, and infrared lamps

  • Working out (skip the gym for the day)

  • Touching, scratching, or rubbing the treated area

  • Intercourse or lubricants ( for 48-72 hours after service)

  • Using a razor to remove hairs in between appointments. It defeats the purpose of and decreases the benefits of body sugaring.

Post Care:

  • It is essential to exfoliate and hydrate your skin. Start exfoliating the skin two days after the sugaring treatment every 2-3 times a week, every other day. To exfoliate, you can use a natural bristle body brush with water and move in a circular motion or against the direction of hair growth. It will help prevent ingrown hairs. 

  • To keep skin hydrated, make sure to moisturize with an all-natural lotion. 

  • Keep skin clean and wear loose clothing.
