The paste we produce is aimed at professionals who use it in beauty salons, but it can also be used at home. Nothing is impossible, even if you have never done it before. We recommend you book an appointment at a professional salon first to see how the esthetician works.
The choice of sugar paste depends on the type of hair being removed. If you have doubts regarding which to choose, buy soft and hard types first. You can easily mix them together, getting any consistency you need. Nevertheless, mixing different types of paste takes time and doesn’t always lead to stable results. It’s better to have all three types of paste at hand. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money and want to try it on yourself, we recommend buying a medium paste, which is all-purpose and will help you to understand how to work with the sugar paste in general.
It depends on the practitioner’s skill. For a good esthetician, sugaring takes less time than waxing. For example, the bikini area takes no more than half an hour.
It’s very important to prepare the designated area for treatment. Our special lotion, applied before the procedure, cleans natural oils and other contaminants from the skin while also opening the pores, allowing the hairs to release with less pain. Clean skin is a guarantee for a successful procedure. If you omit the preparation, the paste won’t stick properly to hair and efficacy can decrease, forcing you to go over the same area several times. Meanwhile, our lotion, used after the procedure, soothes skin, prevents ingrown hair and slows down its growth. It also moisturizes and can be used for any body part, including the most delicate areas.
Drying powders is necessary to dry the skin before the procedure and lift hair to make it easier for the paste to envelop it.
Sugar paste sticks when it’s too warm. It also happens when you choose a paste texture that is too soft for the area, or when the temperature of your hands or client’s body has increased during the procedure.
The client’s skin should be clean and dry (see above regarding skin preparation.) The hair should be at least ¼ inch long. If needed, powder the skin with more talc to dry it. If the paste still doesn’t stick properly, you might be using a paste that is too hard for the conditions or you haven’t kneaded it sufficiently beforehand. Firm pastes require some kneading before application. Try taking another bit of paste and knead and stretch it before use or choose a softer type of paste.
