The Stel­lar trial Su­gar­ing

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

It may sound like some­thing you do with ic­ing, but su­gar­ing is ac­tu­ally beauty’s lat­est trend in hair re­moval. Com­pared to tra­di­tional wax­ing, the for­mula is ap­plied at room tem­per­a­ture and takes the form of a trea­cly, mal­leable mix­ture that’s free of nasty chem­i­cals. Once ap­plied in the same di­rec­tion as hair growth, su­gar­ing re­moves strands at the root but is far gen­tler on skin.

Ina Clow, owner of Syd­ney’s Ciao Bella sa­lon, trains prac­ti­tion­ers in su­gar­ing, and cites per­ma­nent hair re­duc­tion as the pro­ce­dure’s core ben­e­fit. Each ses­sion lasts from four to six weeks and re­growth be­comes finer and sparser af­ter three months. Clow ad­vises four- to seven-day growth for best re­sults, and fol­low­ing up with a mud bath ap­point­ment to detox im­pu­ri­ties caused by the re­moved fol­li­cle. where to go...
