Weather's already changing and we know what's coming... winter!
The end of summer is no reason to stop your hair-removal routine! Many women consider bathing suit season the highest-priority for Sugaring or waxing because most part of our skin are exposed, but regular summer hair-removal shouldn't stop when winter comes. Here's why.
~Reduced Hair Growth
Sugaring removes hair from the root, and every time you sugar, you're hair grows lesser, and the hair will be lighter and finer. Repeated sugaring results in permanent hair loss, but if you give your follicles a chance to recover for half the year you will not experience the same level of reduction. By continuing to sugar in the winter, you are giving yourself a chance to take care of those stubborn hairs before summer returns.
It is no secret that removing unwanted hair can be painful. It is important to understand that the more often you sugar, the less painful it will be. Every time you sugar, you are weakening the roots of your hair. Your skin recovers more quickly. New hair growth will come in finer, and will be thinner. Keeping up your waxing routine year round does not give your hair and skin the chance to revert backward.
~Start in Winter and achieve flawless skin on Summer
For those just starting, winter is a perfect opportunity to start. The reason is that it usually takes several sessions before the bumps and irritation from previous shavings are gone. By starting the process in the winter, your skin will be silky smooth and breathtakingly beautiful just in time to show it off when the warm weather arrives.

Sugaring removes hair from the root, which not only avoid future follicle growth, but damages the follicle's ability to grow strong new shafts of hair. This means that every time you sugar, you're hair grows lesser, and the hair grows will be lighter and finer.
The reason for this is that our hair grows in three stages. Our hair either is growing (Anagen), lies dormant (Catagen), or is falling out on its own (Telogen).
Let's try to further understand the hair growth phases.
1. Anagen (Growing Phase)
The growing phase lasts two to seven years and determines the length of our hair.
2. Catagen (Regression Phase)
This stage lasts about ten days. The hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.
3. Telogen (Resting Phase)
The resting phase lasts around three months. Around 10-15% of hairs are in this phase. Whilst the old hair is resting, a new hair begins the growth phase.
Repeated sugaring results in permanent hair loss.
Also, depending on the length of your hairs, and whether they are exposed, near the surface of the skin, or far beneath the surface, it may take several treatments to obtain the results you want.

Face Sugaring is a procedure done to remove excess or unwanted hair from your face. From cleaning your eyebrows, upper lip hairs, chin, and even beards for guys.
Listed below are the top reasons why you should go for face sugaring.
Unlike other techniques, the materials used contain fewer and natural ingredients. It's made of water, sugar and lemon.

Good for Sensitive Skin
Since our face is one of the most sensitive part of our body and most precious, Sugar is the most preferable way on removing facial hair.
It doesn't just remove hair but also removes dead skin cells. It is also applied with almost the same temperature as our body so you'll definitely won't get burn.

Facial hair are mostly short, and sugar paste can remove short hairs. You'll definitely can achieved that flawless face.
Before and after the sugaring appointments, let us keep in mind some of the things you should follow. By that, you will receive the best results of sugaring.
- You should be sure that your hair is long enough to be removed. If it is too short or the time between two appointments is too short (less than 1 week), it is challenging to remove your hair.
- You should take a shower before having an appointment and try not to sweat, so that the bacterias cannot stay in your skin. Although we will use presept to clean your skin, just stay hydrated to save your skin, especially when you have sensitive skin.
- You need to stay away from hot water; warm water is alright.
- If you have your VIOs done, say no to sex for one night.
- You should exfoliate your skin four days after the sugaring day so that you can rejuvenate your skin and prepare for the next appointment well.
These are some tips that you can apply for a better result of hair removal. And, if you want to receive a wonderful hair removal treatment, you are welcomed to MarisGina! We hope to see you soon!

1. There most common type of sugar is REGULAR. Regular sugar can be applied to normal skin type and is suitable under any kinds of weather.
2. The second type is LK, which is much softer. LK can be applied to cold skin type and sensitive, thin skin.
3. The third type is TROPICAL. Tropical sugar can be applied hot skin type. Tropical sugar is the hardest type, but you will not get hurt.

If you do not know which type of sugar is suitable for you, let us choose it for you. We hope to see you soon at Maris Gina.
Some of our customers wonder why their short hairs cannot be removed within the first day of sugaring. The answer is because the sugar is full under the hair, so it is really tough to remove the hair. Therefore, before the next appointment, the customers need to remember the below notes so that we can easily remove the short hairs.
1. Four days after the sugaring day, the you need to exfoliate your skin, which means you remove the dead cells from its surface. However, within the three days after you are sugared, do not exfoliate.
2. Three days after that, you can continue exfoliating. Within a week, you can exfoliate your skin 2-3 times to make sure all the dead cells and left sugar are removed.
3. You have to remember that you must not exfoliate your skin 3 days before your next appointment. We highly recommend that you have the next appointment within 3 weeks time.
We hope that the instruction can help you have a clearer idea of exfoliating the skin after having sugaring. Let us remember every step to receive the best results for body sugaring. Also, do not hestitate to contact us for further detailed instructions of skin aftercare.
