Sugar Hair Removal: Taken Off Different Than Waxing

Sugar hair removal is different than waxing. The sugar paste is peeled off quickly, in the same direction as the hair growth. With waxing hair removal, the hair is removed in the opposite direction the hair grows. Working in the direction of hair growth makes the discomfort much less than waxing, and results in less breaking of the hair.

Many thanks to Jenn Webdale (read interview) of ALETRIS (now owner of The Sugar Spa) for these photos using Alexandria sugaring products.

To make your own sugaring product, see this recipe and use it as a paste or gel when finished.
