There are pros and cons to each method of temporary hair removal. Shaving is fast and inexpensive, however, the stubbly regrowth can appear within hours.
While waxing may buy you more time before regrowth appears, the process is frankly a form of torture. Depilatories are painless and effective, nevertheless, absorbing these harsh chemicals into your dermis on a regular basis can lead to detrimental skin damage.
So what’s a hairy girl to do?
Sugaring is an often overlooked hair removal technique. This technique originated in ancient Egypt and can be used on all areas of the body.
A paste made of sugar is applied to the skin in a rolling motion. When removed, it takes the unwanted hair with it. Generally, sugaring results lasts between 4-6 weeks. It is also less painful than waxing because the sugar only adheres to the hair and not the skin and is easily removed with water. Therefore, there is no unnecessary tugging of the skin. Best of all, it is all natural.
