We, as the consumers, have a tendency to spend a noted amount of money to rejuvenate our faces and at best our décolletés. But what happens to the rest of the largest organ of the body? It cries out for help by mimicking the Sahara, an alligator, the Rocky Mountains … well you get the idea.
Now, I can write this article to you my colleagues, my friends and my customers as a nice, light but quirky piece with some educational value, however I decided to simply have a heart to heart with you. Having the pleasure and privilege of meeting people from all walks of life, from all over the world, I have met incredibly knowledgeable people who go the distance to create healthy choices for skin care.
They balance research and development with science, innovation and good old fashioned common sense. These companies are not a dime a dozen … they are out there. They are much brighter than yours truly, more educated, and definitely more diplomatic – although I am getting better with age. Speaking of professional sugaring, however, and all that can be achieved with and through it – that is my specialty! Pofessional sugaring is something I have come to live and breathe by for nearly 22 years. Why? Because it is clear, clean, simple, correct and effective on so many levels. Having created several techniques for this hair removal process, it stands to reason that I will continue to be dedicated to the world of professional sugaring hair removal and skin conditioning treatments. Advanced body sugaring is very safe to gently exfoliate and remove hair from more delicate skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, varicose veins, spider veins, diabetes, et cetera … because it will not further damage the skin. When performed correctly by a certified practitioner, advanced body sugaring gently exfoliates the excess cell accumulation from the skin. Sugar itself has natural healing properties giving an added benefit to the treatments.
Ingrown Hair Therapy
Ingrown hairs are generally trapped by excess dead skin, blocking the pathways (the mouth of the follicle) to the hair shaft. Areas with deep terminal hair such as the bikini, however, can sometimes become infected and inflamed. The skin hardens over the mouth of the follicle, preventing the hair from pushing through, which can be quite painful and can lead to scaring.
Exfoliating the skin to rid the follicles of blockage with advanced body sugaring not only clears the path for new hair growth, it also begins the healing process to repair the damaged skin tissue. Combining treatments with at-home retail products increases the healing process and improves the skin's condition. It is safe, simple and effective! All your clients need to do is apply their at home products twice daily to soften skin cells and to repair inflamed and infected follicles from ingrown hair. Then the clients need to gently exfoliate with spa massage gloves whenever taking a shower and to mask the area in question once per week. The results will be amazing and your clients will be hooked on great skin.
Hair Free Skin
Advanced body sugaring is used for more than hair removal all over the world now! The sugar paste's application helps it to gently adhere to dry skin cells, which then allows you to effectively (yet still gently and safely) exfoliate the dry skin – leaving the skin immediately soft and smooth.
Everyone amps up their workouts in an effort to obtain that beach-ready body. By adding body sugaring to your client's weekly routine it will ensure their skin has a beautiful, healthy glow worthy of flaunting. Not everyone needs to remove the hair on their midsection, but with summer trends bringing us crop tops and bralets, sugaring simply to condition the skin will brighten and soften it to enhance those beautiful abs.
As a precautionary measure, remind your clients that they should not tan the day-of or after a treatment because their skin will be more susceptible to burning due to exfoliation. At-home treatments will keep your silky smooth results lasting much longer.
Summer time always calls for some leg bearing and there is no better way to accomplish beautiful, smooth legs than through body sugaring hair removal and skin conditioning treatments. Be ready for the high-low skirts of this summer season and simply love those skirts!
Other areas on the body such as dry elbows, knees, under the buttocks and back of arms can all be smoothed out successfully using the body sugaring treatments. Regular treatments for sugaring hair removal and exfoliation (skin conditioning) will allow the skin to keep healing and to remain well-balanced through the natural healing properties found in sugar.
After the winter months and change of seasons, many clients experience dry patches of skin around the nose, chin and mouth areas. Molding the sugar paste lightly across those areas will gently remove the dry skin. Following up the sugaring treatment with a good mud mask or hydration cream will give you optimum and deeper penetrating results.
People with the tricky situation of acneic skin combined with dehydrated and dry appearing skin tend to experience more breakouts simply because dehydrated skin produces more sebum, which creates new breakout cycles. Body sugaring is an awesome step in removing not just the dead skin cells but clogged dirt and debris as well; the reasons for this being the advanced technique and sugar paste formulation that allows the sugar paste to seep into the follicles. And even if there is no hair to remove, the sugar still does its thing by gripping all that it touches inside the follicles and sliding it out via a unique technique for extraction. You can actually see comedones begin to peek out of the follicle until they are completely released!
A good, quality mask following your sugar extraction treatment will again optimize the skin's balancing results. Keeping up the masks at home is a quick and easy fix to maintaining the skin's health. Using facial cleansers, toners, hydration lotions, et cetera … that are low in chemicals which do not contain harmful ingredients, such as parabens, ureas and petro ingredients are perfect products for troubled skin and excellent for unisex retailing. All of these products in conjunction with hair removal combat troubled skin very well.
A Whole New Level
Take your professional sugaring skills to a whole new level – go where no alternative hair removal specialist dares. If you use a reliable, soft and pliable formulation with a very gentle technique, you can perform sugaring treatments to help your clients who suffer from psoriasis, eczema or keratosis. Start by putting your client on a bi-weekly skin conditioning program. With or without hair, sugaring psoriasis, eczema or keratosis every two weeks will help prevent an accumulation of excess dead skin in troubled areas. It will also keep the skin in optimum condition all the while healing it with every treatment.
Professional sugaring is about understanding sugaring hair removal, mastering, applying and using a safe, natural and deliciously edible sugar paste resulting in your clients enjoying and achieving optimum results. Thereby, you the professional can bask in the glory of a job well done and in turn make a good living from it.
