Sugaring Before & Aftercare
17 tips that you can do before and after your Sugaring appointment for best results
Use a loofah, bath mit or sugar scrub to exfoliate 2-3 times a week when you bathe. The best time to start is 72-hours after your Sugaring treatment. Thereafter, rinse thoroughly and remove all soap and leave to dry naturally in a well ventilated place.
Moisturize your skin daily before and after your hair removal treatment (not the day of your treatment or during the first 72 hours after your treatment). Moving foward, this will help your skin and the hair grow for better sugaring treatments.
Do not do anything that will cause excessive sweating as the follicles are open and prone to infection.
Resist sun exposure for 48 hrs before and after being sugared.
Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, spas and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
Both hot baths and hot showers are discouraged directly after your appointment. If you need to bathe, use lukewarm water.
Stay away from swimming in chlorinated pools or the beach for 24 hours after your sugaring treatment.
Hold off from heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
Abstain from the use of exfoliating products for at least 72 hours after Sugaring as they might irritate your skin.
Hold off from using natural loofah’s as bacteria thrives in natural fibers.
Avoid applying deodorant for the first 24 hours after sugaring treatment if sugaring underarms.
Ditch applying make-up directly after facial sugar.
Avoid tight clothing after sugaring, especially in the sugared areas. Wearing tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
Don’t shave between sugaring. This distorts the hair growth cycle.
Don’t pick at ingrown hairs, it may cause scarring or even infection. Come in and we will remove them professionally and hygienically.
Apply cold compress or anti-histamine cream to reduce redness, hives or irritation. If you break out in read bumps after your sugaring appointment, this is called a histamine reaction. Taking an antihistamine will resolve this but let your Aesthetician know.
It is recommended your hair removal treatments are scheduled every 3 weeks for the best results. The hair will eventually start growing in less and less for most people if you maintain an every 3 week schedule year-round.
