Question: I am not an esthetician and have never done this procedure before. Will I succeed?
Answer: The paste we produce is aimed at professionals who use it in beauty salons, but it also can be used at home. Nothing is impossible, even if you haven’t ever done it before. We recommend you having it done at the professional salon first to see how the esthetician works.
Question: Do I need to buy all three types of your sugar paste (soft, medium, hard)? How can I see which one I need?
Answer: The choice of sugar paste depends on the type of hair to remove. If you have doubts regarding the type of sugar paste to choose, buy soft and hard ones first. You can easily mix them together, getting any consistency you need. Nevertheless, mixing different types of paste takes time and not always leads to the stable results. It’s better to have all three types of sugar 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 one, it’s all-purpose and will help you to understand how to work with the sugar paste in general.
Question: How much time does the procedure of sugaring take? Does epilation take less time than waxing or not?
Answer: It depends on the practitioner’s skill. It takes even less time for a good esthetician than waxing. For example, bikini area takes not more than half an hour.
Question: Do I have to use talc and lotion before and after an epilation? What do I need them for?
Answer: It’s very important to prepare the designated area before the procedure: clean the skin from natural oil and other contamination, and also to open pores so the hair will be pulled out easier and there will be less pain. Clean skin is a guarantee for a successful procedure. If you omit the preparation, the paste won’t stick properly to the hairs, and the percentage of removed hair will be lower, so you will need to apply paste on the same spot several times. A special lotion applied before the procedure deoils the skin and opens pores. A special lotion used after the procedure soothes the skin, prevents ingrown hair and slows down its growth. It also moisturizes the skin and can be used for any body part, including delicate areas. Talc is used to dry the skin a little.
Question: Sugar paste sticks to my hands and the client’s skin! What to do? What am I doing wrong?
Answer: Sugar paste sticks to hands when it’s too warm. It usually happens when you choose a too soft paste, or the temperature of your hands or client’s body has increased during the procedure. That’s not a problem. Take another piece of paste, make sure it’s not too warm (you, probably, won’t need to knead it) and try again. If it sticks again, try using a harder type of paste.
Question: Sugar paste won’t stick properly to the client’s skin. When I tear it off, a lot of hair are not pulled out. What to do?
Answer: Make sure that you do everything right. The client’s skin should be clean and dry. The length of hair should be at least ¼ inch long. If needed, powder the skin with more talc to dry it. If the paste still won’t stick properly, you might be using the type of paste that is too hard for these conditions or haven’t kneaded it beforehand. Try taking another piece of paste and knead and stretch it in your hands before use or choose a softer type of paste.
