Remember when booking your appointment: 24 hours BEFORE AND AFTER Sugaring Care
Avoid wearing perfume, lotion, creams, makeup or deodorant.
Body hair should be at least 1/8 of an inch to at most 1/2 of an inch long, so please trim at home before your appointment. (WE DO NOT TRIM)
Cleanse the areas that are to be sugared thoroughly and wear loose, comfortable clothes to your appointment.
Do not exfoliate, go tanning or engage in any activities that will make you perspire.
It is not uncommon for ingrown hairs to appear within a week of your first time sugaring. They usually occur when the hair grows and reinserts itself into the hair follicle. Try to keep the area clean, dry and moisturized as this can help reduce irritation until the skin has healed. Applying a cold compress may soothe skin irritation after sugaring. It’s perfectly normal for some people to get ingrowns, however with time and consistency, it should get better.
Tips to help treat and avoid ingrown hairs:
Exfoliate twice a week and moisturize daily with a natural, unscented moisturizer.
The optimal amount of time between sugaring is between two and four weeks, depending on the body part. The goal is to remove the hair from the root ball to discourage it from growing back. The longer you wait between sessions, the more time you are allowing the follicle to repair itself and the root to strengthen.
