Benefits of Cirépil's Sugar'Expert Strong Depilatory Treatment
Provide expert sugaring hair removal treatment with Cirepil's Sugar'Expert Depilatory Treatment products from Perron-Rigot, Paris. Sugaring uses a 100% natural, vegan sugar paste that provides a four-fold hair removal process.
- It exfoliates dead skin cells
- Its application is based on massage techniques
- It provides gentle hair removal by uprooting the fibre
- It moisturises the skin during treatment
Depilatory sugaring paste is applied at room temperature, so it's preferred over waxing for sensitive skin. It can be used on all skin types, on any area of the body.
What Sets Strong Sugar Apart?
Body sugaring pasts come in three types: soft, medium, and hard (strong). Hard sugar is firm, with a deep amber colour. It needs to be warmed in the hands and kneaded before application. Its density allows it to cope with the finest hairs. Strong sugar is usually not used on its own since it takes a bit longer to prepare, and it is primarily used on smaller areas or for areas with stubborn hair.
What are the benefits of body sugaring?
- It is an excellent scrub that eliminates dead skin cells
- Hair grows back less quickly
- 90% fewer ingrown hairs
- Ideal for people allergic to industrially manufactured skin products
- Less skin irritation and outbreaks
- Removes even very short hairs
Depilatory body sugaring is a hair removal technique that has been used for centuries and has its roots in ancient Egypt. It is a natural and less harsh alternative to waxing. Here's a brief history of depilatory body sugaring and how it differs from waxing:
Ancient Origins: Body sugaring can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where it was practiced by both women and men. Archaeological findings suggest that Egyptians used a mixture of sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove unwanted body hair.
Middle Eastern Influence: Body sugaring techniques were also prevalent in the Middle East, particularly in countries like Persia (modern-day Iran) and Turkey. It was a popular method used in harems, where women would remove their body hair.
Natural Ingredients: One of the significant differences between body sugaring and waxing is the ingredients used. Sugaring paste is made from natural ingredients such as sugar, lemon juice, and water. In contrast, waxing often involves synthetic or resin-based waxes that may contain chemicals.
Application and Technique: In the sugaring process, the sugar paste is warmed slightly and applied to the skin in the opposite direction of hair growth. It is then flicked off in the direction of hair growth, removing the hair from the root. Waxing, on the other hand, involves applying hot wax in the direction of hair growth and removing it quickly in the opposite direction.
Hair Length Requirement: Sugaring can effectively remove shorter hair, as short as 1/16th of an inch, while waxing typically requires hair to be about 1/4th of an inch long for effective removal. This allows sugaring to be a viable option for those who prefer shorter hair lengths between sessions.
Skin Sensitivity: Body sugaring is generally considered to be less irritating to the skin compared to waxing. The sugar paste adheres only to the hair and dead skin cells, minimizing the risk of skin irritation. Additionally, sugaring paste is typically used at body temperature, reducing the likelihood of burns.
Longevity and Hair Growth: Both sugaring and waxing remove hair from the root, providing longer-lasting results compared to shaving. However, some claim that sugaring can lead to slower regrowth and finer hair over time due to the gentle nature of the process.
Both body sugaring and waxing can be performed at professional salons or done at home with various DIY kits available in the market. When considering which method to choose, personal preferences, skin sensitivity, and desired hair length should be taken into account.
