Sugar Waxing Do’s & Don’ts

Removing body hair is a personal choice. Whether you’re doing it as a personal preference or for hygienic purposes, we can admit that over time the process can feel like a chore.

Shaving might feel like the easier option, however, it requires frequent maintenance and the results are not always smooth.
You may say depilatory creams are the way to go, however, they contain harmful chemicals and can burn the skin if not used properly.

So, if you’re tired of shaving or chemical burns or just a Sugaring Wax newbie. We’ve summed up some do’s and don’ts to guide you through your DIY sugaring session.


1) Don’t touch the Sugaring Wax with wet or dirty hands

The sugaring wax is made from all-natural ingredients and does not contain any chemical preservatives (which makes it suitable for sensitive skin).
Exposure to water and dirt can contaminate the wax and convert it into a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. To avoid this, ensure you store the sugaring wax sealed, in a cool, dry place, away from moisture and direct heat.

2) Don’t shave between Sugaring sessions.

Shaving between your sugaring sessions will affect the hair growth cycle. It can also increase your chances of getting ingrown hairs, razor burn and irritation.

3) Avoid touching freshly Sugared skin.

Freshly sugared skin is smooth and soft to the touch, so we understand how tempting it is to run your fingers over it. However, try to resist!
The empty follicles are more prone to infection and need some time to settle down and close.
This is why it’s important not to do anything that can contaminate the skin, such as: excessive sweating, sex or swimming in a pool.
Wait at least 48 hours before indulging in any of these activities.

4) Don’t wear tight or non-breathable clothes.

Freshly sugared skin needs air. Ensure you wear loose fitting clothing after your Sugaring session, this is to avoid irritating the skin which can lead to an infection.


1) Do grow your hair out to the correct length.

Your hair needs to be long enough for the sugar wax to grip it (about the length of a rice grain).
This level of hair growth typically takes 4 to 6 weeks from a previous sugaring session, or about a week from the last time you shaved.
If you’ve grown out your body hair overtime, be sure it’s no longer than ¼ inch (about the length of a rice grain).
If the hair is too long, carefully trim it with a pair of scissors.
This will facilitate a more seamless sugaring experience.

2) Do Sugar Wax consistently

Sugar Waxing leads to reduced hair growth with consistent use. For best results, sugar every 4-6 weeks.

3) Do cleanse and dry the area before Sugaring.

Sugar Waxing involves the removal of hair directly from the root. This leaves the hair follicles open and more susceptible to skin infections such as folliculitis.
To avoid this, ensure you only Sugar clean skin.

4) Do exfoliate regularly.

Exfoliating two or three times a week will help you avoid the ingrown hairs and bumps that are usually associated with hair regrowth.
Please note, always exfoliate 48 hours BEFORE your Sugaring Session and 48 hours AFTER your Sugaring Session. This is to prevent irritation of the skin.
We recommended using exfoliating gloves. You can purchase here.
