Sugar hair removal or sugaring is a mixture of sugar, lemon, and water mixed together to create a sticky paste that clings to the hair. The process effectively removes the hair and many report that it is less uncomfortable than wax and gentler on the skin. Sugaring has always been considered the most effective, less painful, natural form of hair removal. Our sugar paste is made of just sugar, lemon & water! Sugaring is known to prevent ingrown hairs making it the ideal way to remove all unwanted hair.
There won't be a strip of paper to remove the sugar. We apply the sugar paste in the opposite direction of the hair growth, which allows the paste to enter the follicle and wrap around each hair shaft individually. They with a flicking motion we remove the paste, along with the hair, in the natural direction of hair growth.
For most people with sensitive skin, the answer is YES. But just in case, here is a list of contraindications. Showing signs of rashing, open and or abraded skin, active lesion of Herpes Simplex I/II, or sunburn cannot receive sugaring services. Anyone using Accutane within the past 6 months, Retin A, Renova, Differin, or Avita within the past 5 days. Anyone having just received dermabrasion or a peel cannot be sugared in the area that has been treated.
To get the best service we require that you have no less than 2.5 weeks of growth after your last shave. You must have no less than 3 weeks of hair growth after your last sugar or wax.
Do not exfoliate the area being sugared 24 hours prior to your appointment. Arrive to your appointment with clean skin, no lotion or oils. Please do not consume stimulants of any kind prior to sugaring.
Your home care is simple. Medical experts advise waiting 24 hours after a Brazilian to get intimate with a partner. Avoid exposing your sugared skin to sweat, sun, hot tubs, pools and cosmetic products with fragrance for 12 hours.
Start moisturizing 2x a day the week before receiving your spray tan. Make sure oil is not one of the first 3 ingredients. Massages, facials, mani + pedis should be done 24 hrs prior to your spray.
Shower and exfoliate 6-24 hrs prior to your appointment. You can book your sugaring service prior to your tan.
No products after your shower! You want to avoid applying any type of lotion or beauty products right before a spray tan. They will prevent the spray tan formula from sticking to your skin.
Women, you do not need to wear underwear for your spray tan. If you would like to wear underwear we recommend bringing a black thong and some sort of strapless black bra.
Bring dark, loose-fitting clothes to change into after your spray tan. Open-toed shoes like flip-flops are best. Please no denim, yoga pants, or tight bras.
We will go over shower time with you. Though each tan is customized, you can expect to rinse (no soap) anywhere between 2-4 hours, depending on the solution and outcome desired. Katie will discuss this with you before your appointment.
Solution travels, we wipe your palms down after your service but when you touch your face, legs, arms with your hands the solution will transfer even if it doesn't look like it. Please be aware of skin-to-skin contact. If you find yourself with unnatural-looking palms, apply a thin layer of oil, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes, then use an exfoliating mitt in the area you desire removal.
When you get a tan for your vacation try to come in 1 day prior. Though you have a "tan" remember it is faux and you will get darker in the sun. Always wear sun protection so that you do not burn. Even the lightest of sunburns can cause your tan to start to flake off.
