Sugaring Hair Removal
Similar to waxing, sugaring removes body hair by quickly pulling the hair from the root.
The name for this method comes from the paste itself, which consists of lemon, water, and sugar.
Sugaring may sound similar to waxing, but there’s a key difference: the direction in which hair is pulled.
With waxing, the mixture is applied in the same direction as hair growth and then removed in the opposite direction of hair growth.
With sugaring, it’s the exact opposite. The cooled sugar paste is applied against the direction of hair growth and removed in the direction of hair growth with quick, small yanks.
