Hot wax is best for sensitive areas as its much less traumatic for the skin. Lycon do great hot wax,that melts at a lower temp. Their vanilla lycoflex is a good one for sensitive skin as it contains titanium dioxide, this has an soothing effect on the skin.

Hi,
You can try the tea tree wax, the brand such as perron, lyco, those are the popular ones, but any brand with tea tree will be fine, pregnant ladies also fine with it!!

Hi Judy,
The best option for sensitive skin is sugar paste. It's absolutely natural - sugar, lemon and water and it's suitable for any type of skin. Doesn't leave ANY irritation. All my clients more than happily switched waxing for sugaring! Lucie

Now you can remove all body & facial hair effectively & with minimal discomfort. Its 100% natural (its edible), gentle & lasts twice as long as waxing!!

Sugaring is a pure all-natural hair removal method. Its considered the oldest & still the best method for hair removal & effective for all hair textures. It is often compared to waxing because both are sticky but that’s where the comparison ends.

If you have sensitive skin then sugaring is the best choice. The sugar paste only adheres to your hair & pulls them out by the root without sticking to the skin causing no irritation .

It is a less painful, hypo-allergenic method of hair removal. Re-growth is slow so this method of hair removal can last up to 6 weeks, which is comparable to how long laser treatment lasts & so makes it a good hair removal alternative. It is safe for the entire body & face.

With regular treatments the hairs become sparse, softer & lighter in colour, therefore less noticeable between treatments. Frequent sugaring can also cause the hair follicle to shrink which permanently stops the growing hair.

Sugaring also works as a body exfoliant which greatly adds to the smooth, soft after affect clearly enjoyed by clients.

Experience has shown that the anticipation is often worse than the process itself.

Now you can remove all body & facial hair effectively & with minimal discomfort. 100% natural, gentle & lasts for weeks.

You have no excuse from here on out . . .

So . . . .

When will you discover body sugaring?

Cream warm wax is good for sensitive skin type and having it done professionally too

lycon wax have a wide range of hot waxes and strip wax. I find that Berry Strip Wax is amazing for sensitive skin. Doesn't stick to skin completely due to the titanium dioxide and zinc acting like a barrier to the skin but enough to pull out the hair. Technique is very important ie. application should be applied thinly and removed asap Applying cool water and cooling glass probes after the waxing helps to cool the skin down as well as Aleo Vera Gel.

Hope that helps, as I know this works!

Sugaring has the exact same results as the new craze Brazilian honey waxing. But sugaring originates in Egypt, this is where I trained.
