Waxing & Sugaring
Estheticians use a couple of different types of wax to remove hair from the body. Both are applied with disposable sticks of varying sizes, depending on the detail required in the area being waxed.
- Hard wax. This wax is applied and allowed to cool and harden. It is then quickly yanked off of the skin with fingers. A quality hard wax does not stick to skin — only to hair — so can often be used on clients with sensitivity issues.
- Soft wax, also called strip wax, is a product that becomes the consistency of honey when heated. It is spread very thinly across the skin, and covered with a muslin or non-woven strip. When the strip is removed, hair comes with it. Ingrown hairs can be a problem with soft wax, but it’s the most practical type of treatment for large areas, such as legs, arms and backs, where hard waxing would take forever to accomplish. Your skin care therapist will likely put a bit of powder on your skin before spreading the soft wax, to help keep the wax from grabbing skin when it hooks onto hairs.
Waxing may not be an option for your facial area if you use retinoids or alpha hydroxy acids — don’t forget to mention this to your esthetician, since I doubt you want to lose chunks of skin along with hair when wax is pulled away. If you do forget, your skin care therapist may be able to tell if you use those products, as they leave the skin with somewhat of a ‘shine.’ There are other skin and health conditions that may prevent you from being waxed — your skin care therapist will review your health history and discuss options with you.
Sugaring has a few benefits when compared to waxing, including:
- Sugar is used at a lower temperature, so less risk of burning or irritating the skin
- It will grab hairs that are somewhat shorter than (typical) waxes
- Sugar is easier to clean off the skin (clothes, etc.) than waxes
- Sugar does not stick as readily to the skin as (some) waxes do, creating less trauma
Next to eating well and exercising, maintaining a healthy complexion is one of the key ways to look our best. Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be an expensive (or time-consuming) endeavor. These days, high-quality skincare products are available at any drugstore, formulated for oily, normal or dry skin types. While the individual ingredients of each product may differ depending on what your skin needs, a basic skin care regime involves four simple steps: cleanse, tone, moisturize and exfoliate. Whether or not you need all four steps will depend on your skin type and preferences.
