Ready to give body sugaring a try? To make sure you’re getting the most out of this sweet treat, we’re here to spill the beans on how to prep and pamper your skin before and after a sugaring session.
As the leaves start to change colour and the air grows cooler, the world of fashion welcomes cozy sweaters, stylish boots, and luxurious scarves.
Amid these shifting seasonal rituals, you may be tempted to ease up on your regular beauty maintenance, specifically, your hair removal routine. After all, less skin is on display, so why bother, right?
You know that heavenly feeling of running your hands over your skin after a delightful trip to Sucré Body Sugaring? Smooth as silk, baby!
But wait - are you doing your part to maintain that oh-so-coveted skin texture between your sugaring appointments? Because let's face it, beauty isn't just skin deep. It’s the upkeep that counts!
Exfoliating your skin is an essential step in any good beauty routine. A proper exfoliation post-sugaring helps remove any dead skin cells that linger after removing the hair, and can help prevent pesky ingrown hairs from forming.
Let's take a closer look at why exfoliating post-sugaring is so important - and how you can start incorporating it into your routine.
If you’re a long-time resident of Calgary, Edmonton, or Kelowna, chances are you’ve noticed how dry the air can get. This is especially true in the winter, when it seems like a giant dehumidifier is running non-stop across all of western Canada.
But imagine if that extreme dry-skin feeling never went away, no matter how much lotion you lathered on. Imagine it caused your skin to itch, break out into rashes, or even crack and split. That’s what living with psoriasis is like – ouch!
But can people with psoriasis get body sugaring done? What about other skin conditions? Is sugaring better than waxing?
If you’ve never had it done, the words “body sugaring” probably bring to mind something much different than what it is: body art, edible paint….
After all, what about the phrase “body sugaring” says “great and timeless hair removal technique”??
But that’s exactly what it is, and more and more people are coming around to this ancient method of getting soft, smooth skin. Whether you’re new to the whole idea or you’ve already experienced the magic of a session, here are 9 facts about body sugaring that you should definitely know!
As we’ve mentioned in past blogs, body sugaring has been around a long, looooong time (fun fact: it’s as old as the very first alphabet)! Since its invention, it has spread all over the world and evolved into different techniques, depending on where you go. It’s almost a guarantee that no two salons will have the exact same approach…unless, of course, you’re visiting different Sucré salons!
We believe that not all sugaring techniques are created equal, and we stake our whole reputation on it. All our practitioners at our locations in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan practice the same methods, taught the same way, so that the experience is always the same. You can rest assured that you’ll always get an amazing result with anyone on our team, because the key to our success is consistency!
Have you ever visited a sugar salon and felt a little underwhelmed? Or thought that you probably could have done it better at home?
As avid lovers of all things sugar, we see it all the time. There are salons that lack education and knowledge, or graduates of programs who apply to work with us but have so little practical experience that they sometimes have to restart their whole training. Sometimes, they come to us with certifications but aren’t even able to put on our gloves, let alone pick up and manipulate the sugar paste from the pot.
No matter which method of hair removal you go for, you can always count on at least one benefit: it will get rid of the hair you don’t want. Seems easy enough, right?
But are there other benefits to methods like sugaring? Are some easier on your skin, or more hygienic? Since we’re always looking for an excuse to talk about sugaring, here are seven of the biggest added benefits to coming in for a sweet sugar session!
We’ve seen it a million times: people learn that the recipe for our sugar paste uses simple household ingredients. They see our technicians working, making the whole process look easy. They think to themselves, “Can you do body sugaring at home?”
The short answer? Sure, you can – and many people do. Well, to be more accurate, many people try to…because sugaring is an art as much as a science. Like any art, it takes practice to create the paste and use it like a pro.
A quick Google search for side effects and risks of waxing, shaving, or body sugaring will turn up gazillions of results. Who can you trust? What parts are real and what are just exaggerations?

We do a lot of things for beauty. We’ll use chemical peels that remove dead cells from the skin, and expensive creams full of ingredients we can’t pronounce. Some of us will spend hours plucking stray hairs from our faces and eyebrows, or tearing them out with scorching-hot wax strips.
Just like these other (more painful) processes, body sugaring takes some time to get used to. But when it’s done right, it barely hurts at all – and the more you do it, the less painful it becomes. Why is that? Let’s dig a little deeper and find out!
If you’re new to the ancient practice of body sugaring, you might be curious about how effective it is, how it works, or what parts of the body you can sugar. In other blogs we’ve talked about the ingredients of the sugaring paste and how they work to remove hair, and here you’ll find out more about the most common areas to sugar for a hair-free, care-free look!
