Like your unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert: for $25, you get $50 worth of hair-removal services at The Egyptian Body Sugar Co. on Pauline Street.
Sugar paste, an alternative to waxing, is an eco-friendly method for flank smoothing that's safe for all skin types. The warm—never hot—sugar paste contains only sugar, water, and lemon juice and is applied to the skin with hygienic gloves. The skilled sugarer then peels the paste off your shaggy patch in the direction of hair growth, pulling fuzz out by the root with purportedly less pain and fewer ingrown hairs than waxing. Sleekify both legs ($55) or sugar the bikini area and underarms ($45) to keep it classy at the pool or ice-fishing hole. Due to its low working temperature and all-natural ingredients, it's not possible to get burned by sugar paste; however, it is possible to furtively eat it out of the jar when the trained practitioner turns around.
