At the same time, it is also worth considering the average temperature of the hands: if it is low, then a liquid product should be preferred, and if it is high, then a denser one.
When choosing a product, you should also pay attention to the temperature of the room in which the sugaring procedure will take place. So, if the room is hot, then it is better to give preference to a denser product, and if it is low (not higher than +20 degrees) - soft.
Steps of the procedure

The first one is to carry out antibacterial skin care. To do this, it must be treated with a solution of chlorhexidine or a special lotion. In the event that depilation of the armpits or bikini area is performed, the skin must be additionally treated with talc.
After that, a preheated mass should be applied to the treated area, leveling it with the spatula included in the kit. In order for the effect obtained as a result of the procedure to satisfy, the mass should be applied in the direction against hair growth. The treated area should immediately be covered with a bandage - a strip of dense fabric made from natural materials, tightly smoothing it. When applying a bandage, it is worth making sure that one of its edges is not glued - the fabric will be torn off from it.
After the sugar mass has cooled, it is necessary to slightly stretch the skin above the glued bandage and, grabbing it by the free edge, sharply tear it off in the direction of hair growth. In order not to damage the upper layer of the skin, the bandage should be torn off parallel to its surface.
After the hair is removed, it is necessary to treat the depilated area with softening lotion or chlorhexidine - this procedurewill remove the remaining paste from the skin.
