Sugaring School Lesson 5
Your Goal: Sugar your shin!
Congrats on finishing the Pre-Requisites
Ok, so we’ve been through all the super basic pieces. Now it’s time to actually go for it!
Your shin is one of the easiest places to get the hang of sugaring. You don’t even need actual hair on your leg – just get the motions down. They’ll work without hair (and exfoliate and smooth your skin in the process). Move from the very front…over to the side…then the other side. The sugar will be stiff at first, and will warm up as you keep working with it. The stiffness is actually good when you’re first learning, as it’s way more forgiving than trying to start after you’ve played with it for a while.
Remember: Body sugaring is simple and forgiving.
It’s better than waxing and shaving in soo many ways. But it’s also completely organic. There are so few ingredients that it’s actually food (taste it!). And as such, it’s susceptible to heat and moisture. The sweatier you are…the more the sugar will melt down and get slimy.
So. Take some deep breaths. Blow them out slowly. Notice any spots where you feel vaguely anxious and release the tension. Trust me – this works. Sugaring yourself is the most awesome thing you can do for your beauty routine. You’ll get the hang of it. The Claw is kind of fun. You won’t miss your razor. I promise.
Chime in and help your fellow sugarists!
