You bought your Sugar Paste Congratulations! Now what?
At Sugar Me Bare we are always here to help. If the following tips don't work out for you please don't hesitate to contact us and arrange for a one on one chat to get you going in the amazing world of sugaring.
- To start make sure the area you want to sugar is clean and dry. Apply a thin layer of Sahara Drying Powder. This will help keep your skin dry and also allow the sugar to flick off easier.
- Using your support hand (non sugaring hand) hold your skin taut as you apply the sugar in the opposite direction of hair growth. If you are a beginner it is best to do narrow, small sections so it is easier to flick off. Using the tips of your fingers you will mold the sugar at least 3 times over the desired area. Areas with thicker, courser hair may need as many as 5 or 6 moulds. After moulding the sugar relax your wrist and use a flicking motion to remove the sugar in the same direction of hair growth.
On your last mould, before you flick the sugar off make sure you pass your last point and keep your hand parallel to your skin. If you didn't get all of the sugar off in one flick, repeat the process.
- Repeat step 2 until the desired area is complete.
If you have course hair your sugar may get firm fairly quickly. If this happens you can try adding a drop or 2 of water to the sugar in your hand and kneading it in. You could also discard half of the sugar in your hand and using a spatula get some fresh sugar. If you also purchased the softer Mandisa sugar you could use a spatula and add some off this to the sugar in your hand to mix the 2 together. Alternatively, as a last resort, you can discard the whole amount and start with a fresh new batch.
