Sugaring for Athletes
Athletes can benefit greatly from sugaring.
Removing hair reduces:
chafing and rashes associated with sweat held close to the body
distraction, discomfort and infections from ingrown hairs
hair that can trap heat against the skin
tighter fit for padding and clothing
We have found that those with thick, curly hair see the most noticeable results. The thick roots hold sweat to the skin and increase chafing. Curly hair is more prone to ingrown hairs.
Some athletes have tried dealing with their hair by shaving. This increases the chance of ingrown hair and the roots still hold moisture to the skin contributing to sweating and chafing.
Sugaring is often compared to waxing, but has several dramatic advantages:
less inflammation and bleeding
no risk of removing skin, particularly from areas with very thin skin like the Scrotum.
We can Sugar nearly any area of the body. The process is somewhat painful (you're removing hair by the roots) but the results are amazing. Most people find that the benefits far outweigh the discomfort.
