Pre & Post Sugaring Care

The Prep

Before your appointment, you will want to ensure the following:

  • Exfoliate the skin a minimum of 2 days before your appointment. Do not exfoliate the day before, the day of or the day after.
  • Do not moisturize by putting creams or lotions on the area that will be receiving treatment.
  • Do not apply deodorant if getting underarms sugared.
  • For best results, hair should be at least a 1/4 of an inch long.

If you currently…

  • Razor/Shave – Allow at least 10-14 days of regrowth before getting sugared.
  • Wax – Allow 4 weeks of regrowth before getting sugared.
  • Sugar – 4-6 weeks of regrowth.

We recommend that men bring a clean cotton t-shirt and gym shorts if having their back, chest or legs sugared.

After Care

24 hours after sugaring treatment, you should avoid the following:

  • Do not apply any scented lotions or creams
  • Do not exfoliate the skin for 48 hours after treatment
  • Deodorant (if you had underarms sugared)
  • Heat (including saunas, steam rooms and hot yoga studios)
  • Direct sunlight, tanning beds and infrared lamps
  • Working out (skip the gym for the day)
  • Make-up (if you had face sugared)
  • Touching, scratching or rubbing the treated area
It is very important to exfoliate and hydrate your skin. Start exfoliating the skin 2 days after the sugaring treatment every 2-3 days. To exfoliate you can use a bristle body brush or nylon glove and move in a circular motion. For the more sensitive areas like the bikini or Brazilian use a coffee or sugar scrub. In order to keep skin hydrated, make sure to moisturize with a lotion or cream that is all natural.
Do not use a razor to remove hairs in between appointments. This defeats the purpose of and decreases the benefits of body sugaring.
