I get a lot of questions about sugaring for men.
What is it?
Does it hurt?
Is it different than waxing? How?
Here are my best answers about sugaring for men:
Waxing is used with paraffin, which is petroleum based. Some people don’t care about this. But, if you think about it, petroleum is the biproduct of gasoline production. This means it is far from being natural. Many people have allergic reactions to paraffin.
Sugaring, on the other hand, is 100% natural. The product is literally made of sugar, water, and lemon juice (some people add essential oils and other natural botanicals). It is the safest and best for sensitive skin.
Another thing about waxing, is it needs to be pretty hot to use. Many times if the wax is too hot, it adheres to the skin, and potentially can pull off skin with the wax. This is much less likely to happen with Sugar. When sugaring, you can use the product at room temperature, or at body temperature. There is no need to get it “very very hot”.
Does it hurt? That depends on the person. I’m not going to lie and say it is painless. I will say it is definitely less painful than waxing. However, you are pulling the hair out from the follicle, so it will potentially cause some form of discomfort. It also depends on how long your hair is, and most importantly, the person who is removing the hair. I take my time, and I am told that makes all the difference, and that my way of sugaring is much less painful than others.
I’ve never sugared women before, so I can only speak about sugaring for men. Many of my clients get “Brazilian Sugaring”, which is clearing away all hair on the balls, shaft, inner legs, butt and crack. It looks and feels great. Many men are surprised at the fact that it doesn’t hurt as much as they thought it would. Some come to me “just to see” what it is like, and while it wasn’t a horrible experience, they prefer to shave.
so, there you have it.
