How to choose paste for bikini zone sugaring?
Half of your success in bikini zone sugaring depends on the right choice of paste. It's obvious that it should be a well trusted brand, made from natural ingredients (without any chemicals), and of course with the right density. But the question still persists: how do you choose the right paste for bikini line sugaring?
In our overview article about sugar paste density, we included a summary table for choosing the right one. All that information also applies to the bikini zone.
Please be aware of the temperature of:
- your hands,
- the client's skin,
- the air in the room.
The bikini zone is always warmer than arms or legs (different for everyone), which is why you should use a paste with a higher density than for the other parts of your body.
Increasing the density of the paste also depends on the structure of your pubic hair, which is more coarse and thick. But it doesn't mean that you have to start with a paste of the highest density. The best solution is to start with buying the softest and the hardest pastes of the line, and experiment with proportions, beginning with a medium density (soft and hard in equal parts). A good idea is to buy a set of pastes with different densities.
Skin and mucous in the bikini zone is very vulnerable. That's why it is strictly forbidden to use a homemade pastes in this area. It is better to forget about homemade pastes anyway, as this product doesn't exist for professionals...
You should stick with using professional brands, which will guarantee you stable properties of the paste, steadiness of storage conditions, and effectiveness of the procedure.
Say “no” to chemical flavors, colors, preservatives, and thickeners. The gentle skin and mucous of the bikini zone can very negatively respond to a stimulus, including an allergic reaction and other serious complications. This is also a reason to avoid paste with added herbal tinctures, and other phytotherapy products.
A high quality paste only consists of glucose, fructose, and water. Even if lemon acid was used to cleave the sugar, the final product would have almost none of it left (homemade pastes are different – they have an uncontrollable percentage of acid).
For bikini zone sugaring, it is recommended to choose a paste with a higher density than for arm and leg epilation. It must be produced by a professional manufacturer, and not be homemade. The best option is to buy a paste without any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
