Exfoliate 1-2 days before sugaring. After 48 hours, continue your post sugaring skin care regimen with exfoliation every two days.

  • It doesn’t really matter whether you use a salt scrub, sugar scrub, exfoliation mitt, loofah or sponge! Just doooo it.
  • Regular exfoliation after sugaring is recommended to keep your skin as smooth as possible in between sugaring.
  • Including exfoliation in your regular beauty routine is one of the best things you can do for your skin.
  • Exfoliation is not just for post sugaring care! Use natural exfoliating scrubs all over your body from your face down to your toes.
  • Treating your skin to natural oils, sugars, and carefully chosen floral ingredients
  • These not only prevent ingrown hairs after sugaring, they also provide your skin with nourishment, slough off dead skin cells that make your skin look and feel dull, flat and dry.

If you’re reading this, you likely have already learned that Sugaring is a less painful, more natural method of hair removal. For our newbies in the crowd, Sugaring is a hair removal, or epilation, method that has been used for centuries – all the way back to ancient Egypt and that beauty guru Cleopatra, Persia, and Arabia! Research more about sugaring here. Research more about sugaring here.

When you exfoliate before sugaring a few things happen:

  1. You’ll have less dead skin cells in your sugar
  2. Your ball of sugar will last longer
  3. The pores will not be blocked by dead skin cells
  4. The hairs will glide out even easier resulting in less pain
  5. This also results in less trauma to the pore, less redness if you have very sensitive skin
  6. Even less chance of ingrown hairs
  7. More hairs will be captured in the sugar per flick so you’ll complete your session faster
  8. Your skin will be the softest you’ve ever experienced…for longer!

In my experience and research, your skin will get better results from sugaring if you take the time to take care of your skin before and after your sugaring treatments at home.

  • Results the FIRST time you sugar should last up to two weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.
  • Even after the first sugaring, you should see a noticeable difference in the new growth: ie thinner, finer, sparser.
  • Exfoliation is one of the key ways to keep your skin soft and happy between your hair removal treatments and during your regular beauty regimen.
  • The healthiest way to do this is with natural skin products.
  • They should include small granules which rub away the old skin.
  • This will bring softer, younger skin cells to the surface.

On a personal note…I’m one of those who’s “tried ’em all”, from the loofah to the salt scrubs, gloves, and sugar. I landed on sugar in the “best results” category because long term, the condition of my skin was softer and more healthy.
I believe that because with a glove or loofah type exfoliation, you’re in the shower, using a sudsy wash. Sure, the dead skin cells ARE being sloffed away, but your skin is not being CONDITIONED, you know what I mean?

With salt scrubs, again, sure…the dead skin cells are most certainly roughed away especially which larger grain like pink himalayan. But salt is drying. No matter what you add to the salt (oils, essentials, herbs, what-have-you), at the end of the day salt is drying. Not only that, but on freshly shaven or sugared skin it will sting and burn! Thanks, Mother Nature for the salt, but I think I’ll pass on that.

Suggarrrr. Gawww I landed on sugar (different types, mind you are better for different areas of the skin and skin needs). ie, brown sugar is best for the face because it’s the most gentle and moisturizing because of the molasses that’s in brown sugar. Raw sugar, on the other hand, is best for rough cracked areas like elbows, knees and heels.

Sugar is healing. Check out your history books about how sugar helped heal wounds and prevent infection during the Civil War and beyond. 

I don’t use the white table kind of sugar. I’m talking about raw/unprocessed cane sugars and brown sugars. Unrefined cane sugar also contains the nutrients calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, which feed and replenishes your skin.

According to Positive Health WellnessAllure MagazineInto the Gloss, and even Elle, “Exfoliating is your best defense against ingrown hairs—no matter what method of hair removal you choose.” It’s true. 

“Sporadic Exfoliation Won’t Cut It. If you want to avoid ingrown hairs, you should be exfoliating once or twice a week—and yes, that includes your bikini area (just be gentle).” ~Into the Gloss

“The tip to beautiful skin is exfoliating. Having a good exfoliating routine is the key to the smooth and glowing skin.” ~Positive Health Wellness

“Like brushing your teeth to prevent cavities, exfoliating on a daily basis is essential for helping to prevent ingrown hairs. After hair removal, dead upper layers of skin can build up and trap hairs. When these trapped hairs can’t grow out, they grow back in, resulting in ugly bumps, which can be the early sign of ingrown hairs.” ~Elle
