The Full Circle of Skin Conditioning is a home-care program designed to optimise the condition of your skin between your body sugaring salon treatments. The goal of this program is to give you the healthiest skin possible while eliminating and preventing ingrown hair problems and dry skin.
After you’ve found a salon offering body sugaring services, you’ll want to make sure they are offering a thorough service with quality products, have excellent standards for hygiene and are highly trained and certified. I choose to work with Alexandria Professional and am a certified Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring Practitioner. I advocate the use of the Full Circle Skin Conditioning Skin Treatment program, which is offered exclusively through Slow Beauty Eco Salon. Using the most advanced formulation and all-natural ingredients, the Alexandria Professional sugar hair removal paste delivers exceptional results that will improve the skin’s integrity while diminishing regrowth.
Start by loving your skin
If you’ve spent any time with me at all, you’ll know that the basics of any skincare regime are cleanse/ tone/ moisturise. The I Love My Skin Kit works in harmony to promote clean, healthy and balanced skin for the face and body. The I Love My Skin Kit is a travel-sized starter to get you in the habit of caring for your skin like you have never done before! It contains three products, which I’ll tell you more about below:
Presept Skin Cleanser
Cleansing with Presept is the first step in sugaring – it removes all dirt, make-up and lotions/oils so that the sugar paste can adhere to the skin and grip the hair. Presept Skin Cleanser is concentrated and is ideal for removing make-up, underarm deodorant and even suntan oils. As a daily skin cleanser, a little goes a long way–pump Presept on to a dampened face cloth to gently wash all body parts. It is even gentle enough for babies!
Presept is a gentle skin cleanser and is an effective yet gentle makeup remover. It will not strip the skin of natural protective oils or emollients, nor disturb the skin’s natural pH balance. It is fragrance-free making it suitable for sensitive skins, children and infants.
Presept Skin Cleanser™ leaves the skin feeling hydrated without feeling tight or dry after washing. It is available in a Travel pack so you can easily take care for your skin when you’re away from home.
Formulated with love and no nasties, it contains: Aqua/Water, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol (and) Capryl Glycol, Citric Acid, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA
Essential Tonic is used for pre- & post-epilation. It has natural anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory & anti-microbial properties. Its fine mist-spray delivers a whopping explosion of myrrh. Essential Tonic’s anti-inflammatory properties make it great for sunburns and acne and its antifungal properties help to sooth athletes’ foot. Use it on eczema, psoriasis, nappy rash, cuts and even on shaving rash to calm and soothe red, irritated skin.
It has a soothing and calming effect on the skin while helping to reduce redness (if any) after treatments.
Essential Tonic opens the cuticle of the hair shaft, allowing the sugar paste to grip the hair.⠀⠀⠀
Lactic Acid: a multi-purpose ingredient used as a preservative, exfoliant, moisturiser, and to provide acidity to a formulation
Polysorbate 20: a solubiliser, emulsifier, viscosity modifier, and stabiliser of essential oils in water
Commiphora Myrrha: attributed with disinfectant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-itching, cicatrizant, tonic, stimulant, sedative, and astringent properties. Myrrh can be valuable in products designed for acne treatment.
Restore Hydrating Lotion
Restore Hydrating Lotion is a high-quality lotion that has been formulated to hydrate the skin and maximise the benefits of sugaring.
It is ideal for moisturising dry and flaky sensitive skins as it penetrates deep into the skin to restore flexibility and regenerate skin cells. It will leave your skin soft and supple. It is an all over body hydrating lotion that softens and moisturises your skin without irritation or a greasy after-feel.
Restore is safe to use from head to toe and is:
Glycerin: a humectant used in moisturisers, it is water-binding and able to draw and absorb moisture from the air, thus helping the skin retain moisture.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: an emollient with good spreading properties. It promotes penetration and does not leave visible traces of oiliness on the skin.
Cetearyl Alcohol: an emulsifying and stabilising was produced from the reduction of plant oils and natural waxes.
Ceteareth 20: an emulsifier for oil-in-water creams and lotions.
Glyceryl Monostearate S/E: widely used in cosmetics. It is an emulsifying and solubilising ingredient, dispersing agent, emollient, formula stabiliser, and surface-action ingredient.
Gluconolactone: used in cosmetics for its anti-acne properties. It can also help improve skin hydration given its water-binding ability.
Sodium Benzoate: a non-toxic, organic salt preservative that is particularly effective against yeast, with some activity against moulds and bacteria.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil: an emollient with soothing properties.
Hydroxyethylcellulose: a thickener, protective colloid, binder, stabiliser, and suspending agent.
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil: commonly used as a carrier oil, it softens and smooths the skin. It has a high linoleum acid and other essential fatty acid content.
Phenoxyethanol: a broad-range preservative with fungicidal, bacterial, insecticidal, and germicidal properties. It has a relatively low sensitising factor in leave-on cosmetics.
Tocopheryl Acetate: (vitamin E) an antioxidant that helps prevent unsaturated oils and sebum from becoming rancid.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: a moisturiser and emollient. Reduces transepidermal water loss without completely blocking the transportation of water vapour and gases, providing the skin with suppleness and softness.
Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: has excellent penetration and sun-screening properties.
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract: has clinically proven anti-inflammatory and repairer properties. It is also considered bactericidal, anti-itching, soothing, antiseptic, purifying, refreshing, and hypoallergenic with the ability to neutralise skin irritants.
