The waxing specialists at Beauty Regime deforest unwanted fuzz with the ancient hair-removal techniques of sugar waxing. A special formulation concocted with sugar, lemon, and water, the sugar wax extracts strands from their roots with minimal hair breakage, allowing individuals to don swimwear or skimpy space suits without having to worry about protruding frizzies. Safe for all skin types, the antibacterial elixir, which sidesteps alcohol, mineral oil, or fragrances, typically induces less pain than hard resin and does not remove top layers of skin. Sugar waxing generally leaves intimate areas smooth and bare for two to eight weeks, which makes waxing a more lasting treatment than shaving or spraying hairs off the body with a high-powered fire hose.
