If you’ve only ever heard of traditional waxing, it’s time for you to get educated on the new fad — sugaring! Sugaring is an alternative method of hair removal, although it’s very similar to traditional waxing, there are some undeniable differences. 

In this month’s MKP blog, you will be informed of the ingredients in sugaring, what to do when getting a sugar wax, and the difference between sugaring and waxing.

Ingredients in a Sugar Wax

In sugar wax, the ingredients are quite basic and all-natural. Sugar wax is made out of course white sugar, lemon, water, and salt. (It almost sounds like a dessert recipe, right?!) There are not too many products today that use a list of ingredients that short or so environmentally safe! Thanks to this shortlist, sugar waxing isn’t hard on the skin or the body.

When Getting a Sugar Wax at MKP in Columbus, GA

To prepare yourself for your sugar wax it is important that you grow your hair out in order for the wax to grab the root of your hair. Typically hair needs to be grown to a ¼ of an inch before going in for a sugar wax. (Yes it might be uncomfortable, but it will be worth it to be silky smooth for weeks after your session!) 


When coming in for your appointment, make sure to have on loose-fitting clothes. After your waxing appointment if you have to put on tight clothes it could rub and irritate the freshly waxed skin. Ouch! Lastly, give your skin about 48 hours to recover before putting it through anything too strenuous. Hot showers, swimming, working out, or having sex may not be a good idea directly after your hair removal service.

What to Expect From your Sugaring Services

When you have your hair removal service done your wax artist will start off by cleaning the skin of the desired waxing area. Then a barrier powder will be put on your skin to shield it from being directly connected to the wax. After that, your wax artist will begin to form the wax in their hands to warm it up. It’s really a fascinating process!)


Finally, your waxing technician will smooth the sugar wax on your skin and peel it off! Continuing this process throughout your hair removal service.

Difference Between Waxing and Sugaring

Often times clients wonder what the difference is between sugaring and traditional waxing. Sugar waxing is more natural, as mentioned before, only containing four ingredients. Sugar waxing is also less painful, as there is a barrier between the wax and your skin. As described when you get a sugar wax, the same ball of wax is used throughout your service. When you get a traditional wax there are multiple different waxing strips.
