Here’s Why TikTok’s Latest Waxing Trend is Causing Trauma to Your Skin

This week, viral videos from Tiktok show faces covered in hard wax. However, Sugar Waxing Brand Creator says that this way, waxing facial hair can cause skin damage and is not the most effective for removing facial hair! 

We’ve all seen the jaw-dropping videos of people coated in thick wax in hopes of removing hair from their face, ears, and noses. This procedure not only looks extremely painful, but it can also irritate the skin meaning it’s not very effective for hair removal.

Rosie Khandwala is the founder of Sugar Coated, a 100% natural sugar wax brand, and says “facial skin is the most sensitive of the body, so you have to use products that don’t cause any extra discomfort or trauma to the skin.” 

Therefore Rosie says the thinner the wax; the better. “Applying a thin layer of Sugar Coated sugar wax to facial hair like the upper lip, or eyebrows, gives a more effective removal of hair, as the product adheres to the hairs and pulls them out from the root, without tugging on the skin. The tugging of the skin is what causes most of the pain with waxing, so sugar waxing this sensitive facial skin is actually less painful.”

Benefits of Sugar Coated Facial Hair Removal Kit:

  • Added Lavender Essential Oil to soothe and calm the skin during and post waxing
  • Formula is made from pure sugar syrup and water making it vegan, cruelty-free, water-soluble, and biodegradable
  • Each kit comes with washable, reusable strips and applicators

Rosie introduced the UK market to sugar waxing after moving to the UK from Tanzania in the 60’s. Sugar Coated is her family run business that gives salon-quality waxes from home, with effective, and more gentle results! Sugar Coated is available at Next and Feel Unique from £9.99.
