Oh, Organic! – The Sweetest and Safest Way to Hair-Free Skin

Two-months into postpartum, I can say that my body is slowly getting back to its pre-pregnancy state, and I’m trying to get all the help I need.

When it comes to unwanted hair, I only go for the natural and organic.

Hey Sugar 2

You’ve probably already heard of sugar waxing. You’ve heard that it’s an organic process that uses deliciously natural ingredients administered by expert aestheticians. The whole process involves removing unwanted hair while exfoliating your skin. The end result is smooth, soft, glowing skin.
It’s all true.

Hey Sugar
The ingredients used in sugaring are all natural—and by all-natural, we mean ingredients that you could actually eat. This means it’s perfect for sensitive skin. You don’t have to worry about strange additives or weird unpronounceable ingredients.

The process also involves a thorough exfoliation after removing unwanted hair, which is critical to the entire process because it will help prevent ingrown hairs, and make sure that the whole process is pain-free.

All things considered, it’s almost impossible to imagine you’d go with any other grooming
method.

Hey Sugar 3

I am so happy we have better options in keeping our bodies and our skin healthier and more beautiful!

“Don’t Panic. It’s Organic!”: 5 Things You Should Know about Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon’s Beauty Arsenal

The last time I plucked the pits was probably… hmmm.. Never!

Seriously, I never plucked them because I was such a coward to hurt myself in that manner, let alone that one-time unrequited love way back. Oops!

I actually resorted to hot wax and hair removal creams before; the hair removal cream I can manage, but not the hot wax! I was literally in tears with two arms flipped up in the air because the “meeting place” of my arms and torso were too busy being copiously wax-spread. They were too painful to remove!

So I really tried to find other means to keep the skin supple, smooth and non-chicken-ish.

Most tend to forget that the skin is indeed the body’s biggest organ.

And just like any organ, it needs a certain amount of care for it to stay healthy and function properly. The thing is, people think that they are doing their skin good by applying certain products or having certain services done on regular basis. This, in some degree, can be true. However, the fact of the matter is, most beauty products—including those used in some of the most regular beauty services you get—contain chemicals that do more harm to the skin (and the rest of the body) than good.

IMG_20170714_113725

It is not uncommon knowledge that anything we apply on our skin eventually ends up in our bloodstream. And for this reason, more and more people are now opting for all-natural and organic beauty options.

On an average, four out of ten people readily seek out organic products. But if you’re part of the six still on the fence, here are the top reasons why you should make the switch:

  1. Less health risks

As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases.

  1. Lower exposure to allergens

The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin.

Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no side effects.

  1. Helps nourish your skin

Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.

  1. Better quality products

IMG_20170714_114725

There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free.

  1. (Almost) Painless Regimen

IMG_20170714_113909

Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced.

This is where Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon comes in to save the day! Using only 100%naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax— you get a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

My eyebrows only needed a little retouch since I had them threaded about a week and a half ago, surprisingly it wasn’t that painful, and the redness ebbed faster than it used to.

They WHIPPED My Hair Back and Forth (Sugar Wax & Body Scrub Salon)

I have always debated it in my mind on why there are certain things that we don’t want but still exist. Like poverty, crime, graft and corruption, unemployment, inflation, and under arm hair. Oooops. Lets respect this recognition, that all these are relevant issues we face today. You can compare them in so many levels! Haha 😀

Okay, I sounded too melodramatic on the under arm hair part. BUT, we always try to get rid of them, don’t we? Or if you’re hormonally imbalanced, you may have found yourself visiting the waxing salon more than once, in a month.

You see, I actually prefer going to waxing salons, because for the very shallow rant that I hate plucking. Aside from the effort I have to exert, I find it harsh to hurt and inflict physical pain to myself. I’d rather have somebody else do the job for me. Haha! Good thing I found Whipped!

Whipped Sugar Wax & Body Scrub Salon is a sweet haven for girls like me. This is perfect for those who love to maintain smooth and flawless skin. And with “those”, I mean everybody! This up and coming salon caters a lot of services, from waxing packages, individual area treatments, and body scrubs.

I went to their Ayala Fairview Terraces branch. It looked like a cupcake place outside, and it gave me a vibe of fluffy, delicate, and careful treats.

Since I recently bought some sleeveless dresses, I opted to have the Caramel Scrub + Sugar Wax for my pits. You know you’ve got to harvest the crops now!

The staff was really friendly and accommodating. Their white uniforms are a big plus too. The purity of white reminds me of guaranteed sanitation, fine services, and health and wellness professionalism.

My beauty technician, Ms Sheryl was so cordial and gracious with the entire procedure. Her hands were light, and she was keen to provide me a good and quality Caramel Wax and Sugar Scrub. That’s what I really like about their waxing services though. They give you the option of having your armpits’ skin exfoliated first, before they uproot the nightmare. Experiencing it firsthand made my underarms feel extra thankful. It’s truly a whole new fun way of getting smooth and silky underarms! I will definitely recommend these to my friends, and to you my merfolks!
