Use Sugardoh Body Powder to absorb additional moisture, sweat, and body oil on your face.

This will make the sugar adhere to the skin like magic. You can also use baby powder, cornstarch, arrowroot powder, or oat flour.

If you want to use a the strip method, cut one of your strips into mini strips.

You'll want about 5 strips about 1 inch in width.

Dig into your paste using your fingers or a spoon and grab a marble-sized amount of sugar paste.

The sugar will be quite stiff at first and will warm up as you keep working with it.

Check the direction of your hair growth.

This will dictate how you will apply your sugar. Use a well-lit space and examine your face carefully to check the direction of hair growth. In general, upper lip hair grows diagonally downwards, nose to the corners of your lip.

Place the paste on your applicator.

You can use the large applicator or the face applicator if you have one (metal or wooden stick).

Warm up the paste at the corner of your mouth.

Leave it there for 5-10 seconds. This will help the paste adhere to the skin.

Pull skin taut.

Try pretending you don’t have teeth.

Scoop the wax up against your hair growth.

Always using the edge of your applicator (or fingers) perpendicular to your face. Spread the sugar 2 to 3 times in a nice and even application using the corner of your applicator, lifting after each spread. For more on the scooping technique, click here.

Quick pause and hinge.

Make sure you have a little lip of wax at the end of your application. Hinge your applicator down, parallel to your face.

Flick down FAST in the direction of hair growth.

Keep your applicator as close to the skin as possible, almost grazing the tip of your skin as you flick. If you lift your applicator up and away from your body, you’ll break the sugar connection (and you don’t want that).

If you don't want to use an applicator, use a cloth strip.

It's just as effective! For more on the cloth strips method, click here

Continue by section using the same piece of sugar.

If the sugar gets too gooey or difficult, let it cool on your side dish and/or grab a new piece. If you get sweaty, reapply powder.

Go in for detailed work.

After you’ve got the majority of hair removed, you can go over smaller sections using a smaller amount of paste. Unlike waxing, sugaring is so gentle on your skin, you can go over the same area multiple times to get those stubborn hairs that didn’t want to leave their home.

Wash off residual sugar with warm water.

When you are done with your session, just use water to clean up!

Well done! Now let’s recover.
