Sugaring Vs. Waxing. Another major difference between body sugaring and waxing is that the sugar only adheres to the hair follicle and never to live skin cells. Commonly used wax substances, because they contain resins, stick to live skin cells, causing not only pain with removal, but can lift the live skin!
In respect to this, is sugaring as painful as waxing?
Wax adheres to live skin cells and can pull them off, causing pain. Also, according Hibba Beauty, the reason sugar waxing is less painful than hot wax is because it removes hair in the direction of growth and only sticks to hair. I do recommend trying sugaring at least once if you do regular Brazilian hot waxing.
What is a sugaring hair removal?
Sugaring hair removal is an ancient Middle Eastern practice that uses an all-natural paste or gel made from sugar, water, and lemon juice, and sometimes honey, salt, and essentials oils. It removes the hair follicle from the root with results that can last up to six weeks.
How long does sugar wax last for?
A. Generally sugaring hair removal lasts between 4-6 weeks, depending on the level of hair growth and on how regular you are sugaring. This varies from one person to another and is also depending on the body area.
