Sugaring vs. Waxing

I asked my OB if it was safe to sugar while pregnant. He had no clue what I was talking about, so it was quite amusing trying to explain it to him. ‘So I can just use sugar to remove hair from my body??’ he asked. Um no, not quite.

I first tried sugaring a few years ago. I came across a great deal on Groupon so I was tempted to give it a try, and I’m so glad I did.

Sugaring is a hair removal process that’s similar to waxing, but so much better! The paste is made from water-soluble natural ingredients so cleanup is really easy. All you need is a damp cloth, compared to an oil-based cleanser for wax. Also, the sugar paste does not adhere to skin the way wax does, so it isn’t as terrible. Plus, it’s not hot, whereas wax could be painfully hot if you’re sensitive.

I’ve tried a few different sugarists in Toronto, and just like any other esthetician, stick with one you’re comfortable with and it’ll be worth it. There are also some home sugaring kits, but I’ve never been successful with those. Maybe some of you will have better luck.
