Cleansing the skin is a very important prepping step for the sugaring hair removal method. Not only does this help curb some of the potential side effect of getting pimples, the product adheres better to a clean surface and will give you better hair-ridding results. With a cotton ball or round apply a product like GiGi Pre-Hon (buy direct), it also contains anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory ingredients to help protect skin from irritation and break-outs from hair removal.
If you don't have a special cleanser to use before hair removal, take a bath or shower and wash skin thoroughly, but hold off on applying any serums, moisturizers or lotions.
Then apply a light dusting of baby powder or cornstarch and rub softly into skin. Remember, more isn't better. Applying too much powder will interfere with removing the hair. Powder acts as a buffer helping the paste to grasp the hair better and stick less to the skin.
