Getting bikini ready can be a very hairy situation.  Removing unwanted hair is a must when it comes to looking your best.  There are pros and cons to each method of temporary hair removal.  Shaving is fast and inexpensive, however, the stubbly regrowth can appear within hours.  While waxing may buy you more time before regrowth appears, the process is frankly a form of torture.  Depilatories are painless and effective, nevertheless, absorbing these harsh chemicals into your dermis on a regular basis can lead to detrimental skin damage.

So what’s a hairy girl to do?

Sugaring is an often overlooked hair removal technique.  This technique originated in ancient Egypt and can be used on all areas of the body.  A paste made of sugar is applied to the skin in a rolling motion.  When removed, it takes the unwanted hair with it.  Generally, sugaring results lasts between 4-6 weeks.  It is also less painful than waxing because the sugar only adheres to the hair and not the skin and is easily removed with water.  Therefore, there is no unnecessary tugging of the skin.  Best of all, it is all natural.

If you’ve ever checked out my YouTube channel you know that I’m always doing reviews on outstanding healthy beauty products.  One of my hobbies is to try out new beauty products, especially some of those that people seem to be raving over.  Once I get my hands on a product I’ll test it out for at least a few months.    From there, I will issue my thumbs up or thumbs down opinion.  From my tests and trials, I have found some products that I can’t live without now.
