Benefits of DIY Sugar Waxing:

What is Sugar Waxing?

Sugar waxing is a term used for using a natural, sugar-based wax to remove unwanted hair – is a very gentle, yet effective way to get smooth skin for weeks! This natural hair removal method has been used for centuries. With just 3 natural ingredients – sugar, water, and lemon juice- you forget about razors and creams and skip the salon appointments too!

With a formula this simple you might be tempted to make your own sugar wax. And there sure are plenty of recipes on Pinterest and how-to-videos on YouTube that will walk you through how to do this in your own kitchen! In fact – Parissa’s founder, Azar Moayeri, started the business making sugar wax in her kitchen 35 years ago! Our sugar waxes are still made with this natural formula, in our eco-certified facility in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Our kitchen has just grown over the years!

Great for Beginner Waxers:

DIY Sugar waxing at home is easy to do and will give you great results. With 4 easy steps – you can have smooth skin in minutes!

One of the best things about sugar wax is that it is washable. If you get cold feet or make a mistake – you can simply wash it off and try again! Or if you are looking for more precision – say in the brow or upper lip area, it is easy to wash off some of the wax without pulling the hairs out. On that note, we recommend starting with legs and arms, then moving on to face and bikini areas.

The Parissa Roll-On Sugar Wax is an excellent waxing kit for beginners. It comes with two different sized roll-on applicators that make it easy to apply the wax, with less mess. All Parissa Sugar Wax Kits come with re-usable fabric epilation strips, made from recycled materials, meaning everything you need to get started with DIY sugaring is right there, in the box!

Exfoliates Dry Skin

Sugar is an excellent exfoliator, another great benefit of sugaring at home. Sugar waxing gently lifts dead skin cells along with unwanted hair, without the irritation.

Perfect for Sensitive Skin

Many find that sugar waxing is less painful than other waxing products and techniques. The sugar adheres to the hairs, but not the skin which means that waxers find they have less irritation with sugar-based products and still get great results. Parissa’s Body Sugar and Organic Sugar Waxcontain chamomile extract which further soothes sensitive skin.
