What is Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring?

 

Alexandria Professional Logo

Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring is a much gentler, safer, and truly progressive method of hair removal for all parts of the body. It is effective on all skin types and hair textures for both men and women.

What is the Sugaring Product?

The sugaring paste used is a blend of natural ingredients with no chemical additives so there is no fear of any harmful side effects. The application of this unique product will also remove dead skin cells leaving the skin soft, silky and healthy.

Why Alexandria Professional?

Certified Alexandria Practitioners are professionally trained and educated. They are committed to a high standard of service, helping you make Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring™ a part of your regular beauty routine.

Your Appointment

As a Certified Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring Practitioner, I will be able to schedule your appointments best because I will become very familiar with your hair growth pattern. Hair growth need not exceed 3mm to be removed.

Preparing your skin for your treatment

Please do not use a razor or depilatory creams between appointments, as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth and to have smooth healthy skin. Regularly hydrating and exfoliating your skin between sugaring treatments is just as important as receiving treatment. You will receive the best results if your skin is healthy. Ask me how you can maximise your results. The better your skin, the better your treatment. The better your treatment, the better your skin… It’s that simple!

Faces

If required, to quickly reduce redness in this area, I can apply a Hungarian Wellness Mud™ immediately following treatment or apply it at your convenience at home with our Mud Puddle® Hungarian Wellness Mud™.

Rejuvenate your skin!

Alexandria has developed a simple yet very effective home care regimen to benefit all skin types and conditions – a system of the following products:

Saltspring®

SaltSpring Dead Sea Salt - Exfoliate and Detox
SaltSpring Dead Sea Salt – Exfoliate and Detox

Dead Sea Salt exfoliates and smoothes the skin and is traditionally calming, detoxifying and very soothing. When combined with sweet almond oil, it makes an excellent dead skin exfoliant.

Mud Puddle®

Mud Puddle - Hungarian Wellness Mud
Mud Puddle – Hungarian Wellness Mud

Hungarian Wellness Mud™ detoxifies and revitalises the skin and is excellent for all skin types and conditions ranging from acne to cellulite. This high quality, versatile mud comes in a dry form and blends easily to a rich, smooth creamy paste by adding water.

Phemomen-All® 

Phenomena-All Skin Repair
Phenomena-All Skin Repair

A multi-treatment cream for ingrown hair, problem skin, cuticles, calluses, rough elbows and knees. This unique combination of superb, quality essential oils work to soften the upper and middle layers of the skin allowing the quick removal of dead skin cells. This is important in treating ingrown hair. Ingrown hair occurs when a new hair is not strong enough to push through the layers of dead skin cells formed over the follicle. Phenomena-All® will keep your skin soft and help prevent ingrown hair. your skin will begin to look fresh and rejuvenated!

Maximise Results

As your Alexandria Practitioner, I will work with you to establish a routine suitable to your hair growth pattern, so that each treatment works more effectively towards the diminishment of your hair. Since the best age to start is at puberty, I encourage you to influence your daughters to start the Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring™ treatments instead of shaving.

Sun Tanning

Regular sugaring treatments will actually enhance and brighten your tan. Your skin may sunburn more easily immediately following a sugaring treatment due to dead skin cell exfoliation. I recommend you wait 24 hours before exposing your skin to the sun or infrared lamps. You should not receive a sugaring treatment on an area where your skin is sunburned.

Irritants

Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants on sugared areas within 24 hours of your treatment. Do not apply deodorant to underarms for 12 hours after a sugaring treatment. I recommend that you avoid makeup for 12 hours following a facial sugaring treatment.

Menstruation

I suggest that you do not schedule your appointments to coincide with your menstrual cycle, as you may be more sensitive.

Skin Spotting

Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is a natural reaction caused when a hair is removed by the root. It will disappear quickly. The bigger the root, the bigger the spot. As your hair becomes refined, the spots will become smaller.

For Sensitive Skin

If you experience any discomfort or redness, simply apply the Essential Tonic and Restore Lotion from your Love My Skin Kit, purchased with your first sugaring treatment. You can also instantly calm your skin with the excellent Mud Puddle® Hungarian Wellness Mud™.

Why do I need a monthly facial?

 

Skincare education is a key aspect of my role as a Beauty Therapist. It is my job to not only stay on the cutting edge of industry developments but to pass that knowledge on to you, my valued client. You may merely enjoy the pampering and relaxation you feel when receiving a facial treatment, but there is a multitude of other benefits that offer you and your skin health and wellness.

The life-cycle of a facial

Why have a monthly facial?

  • Facials are recommended once a month, or more frequently if you have a specific skin concern such as acne or hyper-pigmentation.
  • The stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) completely renews every 28 days.
  • Actives in the products used in your facial penetrate deep down into the dermis where they illicit change. These cells then age, and as they age they work their way up towards the surface and eventually die and slough off. This is how we improve one’s complexion.
  • Consistency is key, and skin conditions did not develop overnight, so it makes sense that only with continued use can products start to treat the active skin cells.
  • As we age our bodies’ processes slow down. Our skin cells don’t shed as effectively as they used to and require the assistance of regular exfoliation to maintain our youthful glow.  Regular facials can assist the skin’s natural renewal process, giving you faster and better results from your home-care products.
  • A facial isn’t a magic cure, and you have to be willing to take proper care of yourself to look and feel healthy. Even the world’s greatest facial won’t do much good if you chow down each day on greasy foods and consider channel surfing the ultimate in daily exercise. Still, many people who get facials find benefits. Skin often looks and feels better after a treatment, even if the improvement is temporary.

 

What people are saying about Slow Beauty’s Facials:

Suzannah Ridley, 21 April 2017

“Natalie surpasses herself each time! An entire afternoon of relaxation and pampering always makes my day so much better! My feet went in sore and aching, and left soft and supple! Just what I needed! A facial with Natalie is not just a facial! Whilst some places just treat what they can see, it’s the extra attention to details that Natalie provides that makes you leave with a renewed look at the world!” Recommended!

Lynda Leigh, June 12, 2018

“Natalie recommended the arctic berry peel facial…. and true to its promise, was complimented by a work colleague a few days later that I looked radiantly healthy. PMS week pimplefest didn’t happen either.” Recommended!

Prea Eapen, August 5, 2018

“Natalie provides the most relaxing facials that work wonders and the proof is in the compliments I have received. My face is brighter, skin tone more even and my skin feels so good. Her customised facial and products have created a marked improvement in my hyperpigmentation and suit my sensitive skin the best so far.” Recommended!

Perfect Pairings

It’s no secret that we love a good skin care mixology. That’s why we were thrilled to discover that the new Wildflower Collection pairs perfectly with two of your Eminence Organics favourites. Here are two dynamic duos to enhance your skincare routine.

The Perfect Double Cleanse

Together, these cleansers wash away impurities and hydrate skin, leaving it feeling soft, clean and refreshed. Feel like your cleansing ritual isn’t quite cutting it? It may be time to add a double cleanse to your skin care routine – and Eminence Organics Wildflower Cleansing Balm is the perfect first step. Double cleansing takes a “like attracts like” approach to lifting stubborn oil-based products from your pores. To double cleanse, first massage Wildflower Cleansing Balm into dry skin, letting its botanical oils lift and melt away makeup and excess oil. Then, cleanse more deeply with Eminence Organics Stone Crop Gel Wash to sweep away any dirt and dead skin that has accumulated on your skin’s surface.
