Sugaring v Shaving v Waxing: Pros and Cons

There are a lot of different ways to remove hair from your legs, each has there different pros and cons that we are going to be looking into. We are going to review the pros and cons of each of the most common things you do to remove unwanted hair from your body! 


Pros: This method of hair removal is the most common method of removing hair. It is fast and can be done in the shower which is convenient. It is also the cheapest option 

Cons: The biggest con is getting strawberry legs and ingrown hairs. Shaving is a way to hurt your skin because it allows bacteria to get under the skin. Another huge downside to shaving is that it only lasts for a few days, which means you are having to shave constantly which is hard on your skin.  


Pros: Waxing is one way to effectively get rid of the hair on your body quickly. It saves time and also lasts a lot longer than shaving. On average waxing will keep the hair from growing back for 3-6 weeks depending on the kind of wax you use.

Cons: The biggest con for waxing is how painful it is to most people. Waxing rips off the top layer of your skin while removing hair which is why it hurts so bad. Waxing also has negative side effects on your skin and can cause dryness, bleeding, and rashes because of the aggressive way it removes hair and the skin. Plus It is usually the hair removal that takes up the most time because you have to heat the wax and get the strips already. 



Pros: Sugaring is the best for the skin as it exfoliates while it is working to remove your hair. Paired with prepping powder the sugar only removes the unwanted hair and not the skin. Making it much less painful. Sugaring also helps keep the skin much more hydrated and healthy while it removes the hair. Sugaring also requires a lot less time than waxing and has last effects. It keeps the hair away for an average of 6-8 weeks. 


Overall hair removal is your choice but if you want an effective way to remove hair that is going to last for months then the choice is clear. Sugar Me Smooth can help you remove any unwanted hair while keeping the skin healthy and the hair gone!
