Sugaring, sugar waxing, or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal.
The name for this method comes from the paste itself, which consists of lemon, water, and sugar. The ingredients are all heated together until it reaches a candy-like consistency. Once it cools it’s applied directly to the skin.
Sugaring provides light exfoliation. The paste adheres to the dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin, removing them with the hair to reveal a smoother surface.
