Hair removal – it’s one of those personal care chores that is akin to loading and unloading the dishwasher: relentless! Each of the many methods has its pros and cons. There is always hair removal via razor blade, traditional waxing, laser, hair removal creams, and lotions, and then there is sugaring, a centuries-old method that was organic before it was a buzzword.
As the name implies, sugaring uses sugar to remove any unwanted hair and is known to be less painful than traditional waxing. The actual mixture is a combination of sugar, lemon juice, and water to make a paste-like consistency that adheres to the hair, not the skin, resulting in less damage to the skin. Due to the nature of the mixture, sugaring is more organic than traditional waxing and can be done quickly by covering more surface area of the body. It is also water-soluble unlike other traditional wax, which makes it easier to clean off. Read on to find a sugaring spot in Hoboken or Jersey City.
