To Sugar or to Wax, That is the question
The hair removal method sugaring, is a very new to me, but in fact it has actually been around for centuries. This is the method of hair removal used by the Ancient Egyptians.
Both sugaring and waxing come out of the category of hair removal, they are somewhat similar as in the way they remove the hair. Both treatments are designed to remove the hair by up uplifting the root from the follicle.
The Phâro Sugaring formula is made up from natural ingredients sugar, lemon, water, honey and occasionally some essential oils. Were as wax is made up of a lot of filler ingredients like artificial dyes/ fragrances, chemicals, preservatives and resins. Which is why sugaring is a great method for those with sensitive skin.
A good thing about the sugaring is that, if it is applied to the wrong area or an area of discomfort you can remove all traces of the sugar with a warm cloth and it immediately soaks off, not like waxing were you a left with sticky residue and the only way to remove it effectively is the remove it is by waxing that area. A few other points to show the difference between the two methods is listed below.
My first encounter with Phâro sugaring was a few weeks ago at Maya Medispa, I had chosen to have my arms sugared as I normally get my arms waxed, and I wanted to compare the two against each other. A few things on why I'd choose sugaring instead of waxing on my next visit, is I have very sensitive arms, so when I normally get them waxed I'm left with red bumpy arms for a day afterwards waiting for the irritation to go away, and even after years of waxing my arms still get sensitive til this day. But when I got my arms sugared I had zero irritations, no redness, and no bumps. It was the first time ever I was comfortable to show my arms immediately after the treatment.
