Beauty treatment proves a sweet success at day spa

THERE aren't too many beauty regimes that are just as amazing to eat as the results they produce, but sugaring has ticked both boxes and more.

Now if you're one to wince at the thought of hot wax ripping hair from your body, then perhaps this new style of hair-removal is more your flavour.

As its name suggests, sugaring is made completely of toffee.

The only known place in Warwick to offer sugaring is Debra Wren's Country Day Spa on Smelter Rd.

Mrs Wren said, as a regular 'sugarer' herself, she could speak from experience when saying it had its fair share of benefits.

"Wax is old-fashioned," she said.

"With sugaring, not as much heat is required and it leads to permanency quicker."

So how does smothering your legs in sticky toffee actually work?

"With waxing, you put the wax on with the grain, and pull it back against the grain," Mrs Wren said.

"But with sugaring you put it on against the grain, and pull it off with the grain which minimises breakage."

She said after using regular wax, some skin types could break out in red spots and little pimples, but because the sugaring is at a much cooler temperature, the skin doesn't react.

"The only reaction you'll get from sugaring, and it doesn't happen all of the time, is that you may want to scratch afterwards," Mrs Wren said.

"That's only because it's bringing more blood vessels to the surface and tingles a bit."

She said if you're in for a more relaxing way to wax, sugaring was just the thing.

"With sugaring, it's all about the preparation," she said.

"So first you cleanse the skin so there are no oils on the body. Then you use a tonic so the hairs stand up and so the toffee can grab even the shortest hairs.

"Then you put talcum powder on the skin so that there is no pulling of the skin.

"So really, you get more of a massage with sugaring."

Mrs Wren said if sugaring was used fortnightly, it would reduce hairs to nothing in eight months.

Sugaring is 20% dearer than normal waxing, but client Kylie Campbell said it was totally worth it.

"It's nowhere near as painful and I will definitely continue using it," Mrs Campbell said.

Sugaring can be used all over the body, and also works as an exfoliant.

Mrs Wren has also started using Waterlily products, which she said were one of the best out there.
