Hair Removal | Sugaring (epilation)

Sugaring is a method of epilation that is similar to waxing, and, for that reason, is "often called sugar waxing or Persian waxing." It has been in use since 1900 BC, "when a hairless and smooth body was considered the standard of youth, beauty and innocence for women in Egypt."

Sugaring can be less painful than waxing, because the
substrate sticks to the hair without attaching to the skin, may be applied at room temperature or heated to a lukewarm temperature, preventing burning.Nevertheless, there is some risk of skin irritation, sensitivity, and reaction. The Simply Hair Removal website advises, "Of course it hurts to pull out hair however you do it, but many find sugaring less painful than waxing."
