Hey there, smooth-skin seekers! Ever heard of body sugaring? It's this ancient hair removal secret that's making a glamorous comeback. 

Trust us; it's the perfect blend of old-world charm and modern beauty magic. Not only can sugaring provide a more comfortable and longer-lasting hair removal experience, but it also helps exfoliate the skin and leaves it feeling smooth for weeks.

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.


3 Pre-Session Skincare Rituals for Body Sugaring

Before you slip on your robe and head to the salon, it’s important to make sure you’re giving your skin some extra TLC. Follow these pre-session rituals religiously for the best results:

Step 1: Exfoliate

About a week before your appointment, give your skin some extra love​​ using an exfoliating scrub or mitt to remove all the dead skin cells and clear out build-up from hair follicles. This will ensure that no pesky debris gets mixed in with the sugar paste during your session and leave you with smoother results.

Step 2: Moisturize

On the day of your appointment, make sure to moisturize your skin with an oil-free lotion or cream after exfoliating. This will give you a hydrated base for the sugar paste to work its magic and leave you feeling extra soft and supple after your session.

Step 3: Trim & Makeup-Free Zone

Before you arrive, make sure to trim any hairs that may interfere with the sugar paste and keep your skin free of makeup or lotions for a more successful waxing experience. This will create an optimal surface for the sugar to adhere to and give you better results overall.

It’s important to make sure you communicate with your technician before your body waxing session. Let your technician know if you have any concerns or skin sensitivities that could impact the process.


6 Post Session Tips

Pre-session isn’t the only time you should give your technician notes. Your post-session aftercare is also important for successful waxing results. The right post-sugaring routine can help extend the life of your results and have your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

Tip 1: Avoid long hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, or hot tubs for a few days after your waxing session.

Hot water can cause the pores to open, and you may experience irritation. When you step into the shower, make sure the water is lukewarm and avoid direct contact with hot water. Instead, soothe your skin with a cold compress if possible.

Tip 2: Soothe newly waxed skin with a hydrating cream.

Apply your favorite moisturizer a few hours after the session to prevent dryness and irritation. Choose one that contains ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil or shea butter for extra hydration and protection.

Here at Sucre Body Sugaring, we recommend using products that have natural ingredients and are paraben-free. This will help to reduce the risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin, as well as keep your waxed area feeling smooth and hydrated.

Tip 3: Avoid using exfoliating products on your waxed areas immediately after your treatment.

We know how important it is to keep skin healthy, so we suggest avoiding any harsh scrubs or peels in the freshly waxed area. Try not to use hot and cold water, as this can cause further irritation and redness. 

Tip: 4 Use a post-wax oil or cream.

Using a post-wax oil or lotion can help to soothe the skin and reduce any itching or redness

You may also want to use an antibacterial product to help prevent infection, especially in more sensitive areas like your bikini line and underarms. The last thing you want to do is cause yourself further discomfort. 

Tip 5: Moisturize regularly.

To ensure your waxed area stays hydrated and looks its best, we recommend moisturising the affected area at least 2-3 times a day for the first few days after treatment. This will help to keep your skin nourished and protected from any further irritation - and help to enhance your overall experience.

Tip 6: If you have questions, reach out!

If you have any questions about the waxing process, feel free to reach out to your local salon or esthetician. They will be more than happy to help answer your questions and ease any worries you may have.
