Exclusive! How To Use Sugaring Wax Tutorial instructions

The most common question that is asked me about sugaring gel/wax?
"Is it just like waxing in a salon?"
Well...yes and no.
There are similarities, yes. But that's where it ends.
There are so many DIFFERENCES that I can not say that sugaring is
"just like waxing in a salon".

How do you do it? Well, it could not be easier!
• Warm your sugaring wax ever so slightly, preferably, in a bowl of hot water until the wax has the consistency of syrup or honey*
surprisedRemember it should be somewhat warm, but NEVER hot! surprised
• Always start with clean, exfoliated and dry skin**
• Apply a thin layer of cornstarch provided (or baby powder).
• Using the applicator provided spread a thin layer of the sugaring wax in the OPPOSITE direction of hair growth in the desired area.
• Apply a denim strip.
•While holding the skin taut, rub the denim piece back and forth creating heat friction. This action ensures the sugaring wax can soak into your pores, coating hair follicles.
• QUICKLY remove the strip pulling in the SAME direction of the hair growth.
*Note: You can use a microwave in 10-second intervals not to exceed 30 seconds.
**It is highly recommended that you exfoliate your skin gently before sugaring.
See? Similar to waxing at a salon, but I would say, well for lack of better words, OPPOSITE! AND naturally gentle.
