Sugaring is a method of hair removal that is a natural alternative to waxing. Sugaring dates back to around 1900 BC in Egypt. Found also in North Africa, East Africa, and Arabic Culture. (www.ehow.com)
Ingredients: Sugar, water, and lemon juice. The sugar paste is heated to room temperature making it great for sensitive areas like upper lip, underarm, and bikini. The sugar paste is applied to the skin by your sugaring professional in the opposite direction of hair growth and pulled out in the direction of hair growth. Sugaring professionals have to be professionally trained and certified in order to perform sugaring services.
