Five myths about sugaring
Sugaring, as a procedure in beauty salons, came into sight relatively recently, but already has grown many myths behind it. Those myths are the reasons of your customers fears. Let's have a look at the most popular sugaring myths.
Myth 1. Sugaring – is a “dirty” procedure
Clients are often concerned, that after sugaring, they will have to take shower or go home with a sticky skin. Argument: “This is like a boiled caramel!”.
In reality our professional sugaring paste is easily removed from the skin completely, with a regular wet paper towel. As a rule, this myth is being spread by clients, who already tried waxing before. Exactly, after waxing, sticky and oily traces are still remaining on the skin, because waxing paste leftovers are usually being removed from the body with oil based products.
Myth 2. Sugaring paste – is a nursery for bacteria
Sugaring paste considered to be a possible reason of infections and inflammations.
In reality the concentration of sugars in paste is so high, that any bacteria reproduction is absolutely impossible there. Sugar in this high concentration becomes a natural preservative, blocking any microorganisms growth. They just can't survive in that type of environment.
Myth 3. Sugaring is prohibited for diabetes patients
This myth includes two concerns:
- sugar paste can raise glucose level in blood;
- sugaring can cause skin microtraumas.
First, sugar paste that is being used for sugaring has no affect on sugar level in blood. To raise a sugar level in blood, sugar paste, instead of being applied on the skin, need to be... eaten. Second, unlike waxing (comparison of body sugaring vs waxing you can find in another article), sugar paste can not cause skin microtraumas. Softly capturing hair and dead cells, it doesn't rip the skin, so it is completely safe for people with even the worst cases of diabetes.

Myth 4. Sugaring - is a new innovation, not based on proved results
There is an opinion, that sugaring is procedure invented by marketers, created to attract clients.
In reality, hair removal with sugaring paste existed even in Ancient Egypt , where clean from the hair body considered not only attractive, but also practical. Sugaring – is almost a perfect way of hair removal, that becomes more and more popular, after clients were disappointed in other methods of epilation.
Myth 5. After sugaring hair get more coarse, darker and grow faster
It is considered, that after sugaring hair get more rigid and darken.
In reality, during sugaring hair is being removed with a root. After 4–6 months of regular sugaring, hair follicle get weaker and just in opposite, hairs become softer, lighter and less noticeable and fewer.
