Hair care and skincare are both equally important, and when you’re consistently invested in aesthetic hair removal, the skin that holds those hair follicles needs a little love.
At Sugar’d, we offer advice on both pre-hair removal and post-hair removal:
Before Hair Removal
In the weeks leading up to your sugaring appointment, we recommend gently exfoliating the area daily, and applying moisturizer afterwards. This helps to prevent ingrown hairs and keeps the skin hydrated and supple.
However—do not do these things on the actual the day of your appointment. Exfoliation of the skin on the day of hair removal can be irritating to the skin after your appointment. If you go in with wide open pores, some redness and blotching may occur.
Also, we don’t recommend using moisturizer on the day of your appointment. Lotions and oils can cause the sugar product we use to not grip the hair tightly, which can result in multiple tries and a lot of tweezing.
Save yourself the hassle, and arrive at your sugaring appointment with un-exfoliated, un-moisturized skin.
After Hair Removal
After your appointment, you may want to apply a kind and unscented moisturizer to ease any redness or irritation that may occur. There’s no need for exfoliation yet; we recommend waiting 2-3 days after to begin the daily exfoliation routine that we mentioned above.
Also? Keeping your appointments regular (every 4-5 weeks) is important, because the hair will grow back more sparsely every month, resulting in less overall hair removal irritation.

To book an appointment at a location near you, call the location of your choice (locations are listed on our website; we currently have them in Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, and Chilliwack).
Dare to be bare (while keeping up skincare!), and you’ll never go back!
