What is sugaring and is it possible to do it at home?
Thoughts should be clean, and legs should be smooth. For all women, these words are probably an axiom, that is, a statement that is considered correct without proof. Struggle with unwanted hair is a question that has bothered women for decades or even centuries. Fortunately, we live in a time when people have invented many ways to take care of the aesthetics of the skin - some razors cannot be cut and various methods of depilation and epilation. All options that help get rid of excess hair have their advantages and disadvantages. But now we will dwell in detail on the procedure called "sugaring", which many women love, fear, and despise at the same time. They love it because it is thanks to sugaring that you can forget about unwanted hair for a long time, for about a month, and get smooth skin on any part of the female body. And they fear and despise, it because all women have a different pain threshold, and for some, this procedure is very painful. Here, as they say, laughter goes with tears. However, many, even very many, women who dare to undergo the procedure remain very satisfied with the result and return to it many more times.
How long has sugaring become popular?
Researchers believe that sugaring is a thing that happened and is well known in the world, the roots of which go back to the history of Ancient Egypt. The sweet word sugaring came from the English sugar, which means sugar. During the procedure, unwanted hair is removed with the help of heated sugar or caramel paste, which can be purchased at a specialized store or made by yourself at home. The warm paste reliably "grabs" the hairs and is removed from the skin together with them with a quick hand movement. As mentioned above, the first procedures can be quite painful, so it is advisable to trust a specialist because few girls will bring the procedure to its logical end at home. However, over time, the body gets used to the manipulation, and everyone notes that the procedure no longer brings pain. As for the hair, over time it becomes thin and almost transparent, and the skin is smooth and silky. By the way, irritation rarely appears after sugaring, and therefore it is suitable for epilation on areas with sensitive skin, for example, in intimate areas.
Are there any contraindications for the procedure?
Before you dare to try sugaring, you should familiarize yourself with all the contraindications of this procedure. They are quite standard, as with other types of epilation or depilation:
- Skin disease;
- Varicose veins;
- Allergy to honey, sugar and citrus fruits (included in some pastes);
- Cancer diseases;
- Menstrual period;
- State of alcohol intoxication during the procedure.
What are the main advantages of sugaring?
So, if you have decided on the procedure, let the facts that:
- Sugaring is very natural thanks to its components, so it is considered the most ecological way to get rid of excess hair;
- You will feel the effect of sugaring within 3-4 weeks;
- Sugaring is very useful for the skin, because its components can saturate the skin, make it smooth and very pleasant to the touch;
- It is a fairly cheap way compared to other hair removal methods.
How complicated is the sugaring procedure?
Now let's talk about whether it is possible to carry out the procedure at home. Answer: definitely yes, but there are many nuances. You need experience, and it does not consist of watching videos on Youtube, because it is unlikely that you will be able to judge, for example, the temperature of pasta. For the first procedure, we advise you to contact a specialist who will show you what consistency the paste should be, what its temperature should be, and which hand movement is best to tear it off. At worst, you can burn your skin or simply not get any results by making the paste too cold. There are also always risks of ingrown hairs, which are often difficult to remove, or severe irritation.
So, once again, we recommend that you first use the services of a specialist , and only then decide whether to carry out the procedure at home or not continue to visit a specialist.
