Sugaring is an ancient Middle Eastern hair removal technique that uses a warm, thick paste made from sugar, lemon juice and water. It claims to be a sweeter deal compared to waxing: its all-natural ingredients don’t adhere to live skin cells, which minimises – if not completely eliminates – the formation of dreaded ingrown hair. It's simpler than it sounds: a warm, honey-coloured paste, imported from the US, is applied in the opposite direction of hair growth before it’s stripped off in the reverse direction. This removes the hair from follicle with the bulb intact. It’s almost like waxing, except with sugar paste. The price here is pretty reasonable too, a Brazilian sets you back $60 (first-timers only), while underarms go at $25 and $45 for lower legs.
