Is Sugaring Better Than Waxing For Hair Removal?

Is Sugaring Better Than Waxing For Hair Removal, By top Beauty Blogger Barbie's Beauty Bits.

What if I told you there was an easier and less painful way to remove hair than waxing, would you try it? Well there is, it's called sugaring. A friend of mine is an esthetician and shared with me some great tips on sugaring, and I'd like to share them with you.

So what is Sugaring?

Sugaring is an all-natural method of removing unwanted hair, by applying a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and water to the skin and then peeling it off together with the hair.

The three ingredients in sugar paste are a lemon, sugar and water.  In addition to this being an all natural approach to temporary hair removal, there are also some other great benefits derived from the sugar and lemon.  Known for its naturally astringent qualities, ;emon is an excellent cleansing agent. Sugar is a natural exfoliant in beauty, ridding the skin of dead cells.  BONUS: You can also add honey to the mixture.

How To:
  1. Similar to waxing you need to make sure that you have not shaved for a few days as there needs to be a fair amount of hair in which the mixture will adhere to. 
  2. Start with a clean surface, make sure you have removed all lotions and oils from the skin. 
  3. Make sure you have created a thick paste consistency.  It should be applied warm. 
  4. Once you have made your sugar paste you want to apply the thick mixture against the direction of your hair growth. 
  5. To remove, simply peel back the sugar layer in the same direction the hair in growing. 
Benefits of Sugaring Vs. Waxing, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

Benefits of Sugaring Vs. Waxing: 
  1. Hurts less than traditional waxing.
  2. There is minimal redness, and if do have some, it fades.  
  3. You can apply the sugar paste to a larger area at once, as it does not harden like wax does.
  4. There are no chemicals in sugar wax.  Hence, it is perfect for sensitive skin.
  5. You can remove any leftover sugar easily, with just water and some soap.
Have any of you tried this before? Do you prefer it over waxing? Let me know!



  1. I must say sugaring is truly better than waxing. I do laser now though, i think its the best option at the moment!

  2. Isimply adore sugaring!! I sadly have aaaaloooot of hair and so far i tried just about everything (except laser because i am not made of money ¦~| ) and sugaring is just the best! It still smarts when you pull it of but it gets alot more hair and you can adjust the size of the ripping of part, so you can make it smaller around le sensitive areas (like your kness wink wink), it leaves the legs soft and smooth. none of those freaky red-dot-ouch areas. it is amazing and soooo cheap and easy to make i am totaly sold i dont think i ever want to shave again :-)
