Everything you need to know about caring for your skin before and after your Sugaring treatment at The Pampered Peach.
BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT;
It is best to book your appointment after your menstrual cycle when your body is less sensitive. Before your appointment, avoid Epsom salt baths, and moisturizers, and sun exposure for 24 hours. We cannot SugarBrig you if you have a severe sunburn.
Ensure that your hair growth is at least two weeks, to allow the hair to come away from the blood supply so that the hair removal will be less sensitive. Ideal hair growth is 1/4 of an inch, however SugarBrig can remove hair up to 1/16th of an inch - No tweezing!
If you feel it is necessary due to your particular level of sensitivity you may take an anti-inflammatory before attending, or a non-drowsy Benadryl if your body produces a lot of histamines (common in fair haired or red-haired individuals.)
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
For the first 24 hours post-treatment, avoid sun exposure, tanning, perfumed skin products, excessive exercise, beaches, pools, hot tubs and Jacuzzi's.
The best thing you can do for your skin is to moisturize daily, and exfoliating the areas treated each time you shower or bathe with a dry brush or exfoliating soap (after 24 hours). These two things together will help prevent In-grown hairs.
