Sugaring - Hair Removal - iVillage Beauty Body Spa

Sugaring is an ancient hair-removal practice that's gaining popularity today because the effects are similar to waxing, but the sugar is only slightly warmed (never reaching the same high temperature as wax), causing less skin irritation. And the sugar tends to stick only to the hairs, not to the skin, causing less discomfort. The process is the same as waxing: Warm sugar is applied to the skin, then removed with muslin strips. It takes a certain skill -- nimble fingers -- to perform this procedure, and some say sugaring is not as effective as waxing in the end.
