Remove Hair with Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax

Before You Start 1. Exfoliate at least 24 hours before waxing. Lightly rub your skin in a circular motion with a loofah or washcloth while showering. This step helps eliminate ingrown hairs. 2. Trim excess length. It's more effective and less painful to wax short hair. Just make sure there's at least 1/8 inch in hair growth. 3. Gather info and the supplies. Read the instructions in this guide (or those included with the Spa Sugar™ package) all the way through, and make sure you have everything you need nearby before getting started:
  • Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax
  • Damp washcloth or cold compress to help sooth any possible irritation
  • Moisturizing oil or cream (fragrance free and dye free are best)
4. Test patch. Conduct a test patch on a small area at least 24 hours before you plan to use Spa Sugar™. Slight redness after hair removal is normal, and it should naturally disappear after a few hours. Do not use the product if irritation persists. New to sugaring/waxing in general or need a refresher? Don't worry, we got you. See our waxing for beginners guide for successful at-home hair removal.

Using Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax

Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax can be used on the legs, arms, underarms and bikini area for touchably soft skin. But we don't recommend using it on your face.

1. Warm It Up

Warm Nair™ Spa Sugar™ until it's the consistency of honey. You can choose from two heating methods.
  • Heating in a microwave: Place uncovered jar off-center in the microwave and heat as directed in the table below.
Jar Heating Time
Full container 40 seconds
Half container 20 seconds
  • Heating in a water bath: Gently place the Spa Sugar™ jar in a saucepan filled with water, making sure the jar does not float and that the sugar wax doesn't come into contact with the water. To prevent the jar from floating, make sure the water level is no higher than the level of the sugar in the jar, and don't cover the saucepan.

    Once the water is boiling, reduce the temperature to a minimum and let the jar heat up according to the directions in the table below. Make sure that there is always water in the saucepan.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT let the water come into contact with the sugar. Otherwise the sugar will be unusable.
Jar Heating Time
Full container 7 minutes
Half container 4 minutes

2. Spread It On

Spread the sugar wax on in a thin layer in the direction of your hair growth (root to tip) with the provided applicator.

3. Apply the Waxing Strips

Apply a waxing strip from the sugar wax kit, pressing firmly and smoothly in the direction of your hair growth. Pro Tip: Leave the strip on for a few seconds to allow the wax to cool down and more effectively pull out your hair!

4. Pull It Off

Holding your skin taut with one hand, quickly remove the wax strip in the opposite direction of your hair growth, using the other hand. Be quick and don't hesitate. Pro Tip: If you find the hair removal to be patchy, you might be spreading on too thick a layer of wax. Try thinning out the layer of wax on your skin.

5. Repeat

Continue waxing until the area is free of hair.

6. Maintenance

Sugar waxing reveals ultra smooth skin that lasts up to 4 weeks. To maintain beautifully smooth, hair-free skin, it's best to follow a regular hair removal schedule. Hair also tends to grow back finer when sugared regularly.

After Sugaring

  • Any remaining sugar can be rinsed off with lukewarm water. Never use any other products like alcohol or acetone to remove any remaining sugar.
  • The strips and the spatula are reusable. Just clean them in lukewarm water, then leave them out to dry so they're ready for the next use.
  • To remove large amounts of residue, re-apply a used strip.
  • To soothe the freshly-sugared area, apply a moisturizing cream or oil.
  • It's normal for some light redness to appear after sugaring, which will disappear naturally after a few hours. You can apply a compress of cold water for a few moments to soothe the skin.
  • Don't scratch your skin after sugaring as this may irritate it.
  • Wait 24 hours before using deodorant, anti-perspirant, fragrance or any artificial tanning equipment, going swimming or prolonged sun exposure to protect against unwanted reactions.

How to Store Leftover Sugar Wax

  • Scrape the spatula against the inner rim of the jar to remove as much sugar as possible, then rinse it in water. Don't leave the spatula in the jar.
  • Rinse the strips in lukewarm water and let them dry thoroughly. They can be reused a maximum of three times.
  • Keep the jar in the cardboard box, along with the instructions leaflet and the spatula for next time.
  • For the next sugaring session, adjust the heating time to the remaining quantity.

Sugaring Tips for Specific Areas

Successfully using Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax depends largely on proper heating, applying the sugar in the direction of hair growth and pulling it off in the opposite direction. Different areas of the body can present unique challenges. Here's a little area-specific know-how to make your sugar waxing experience a sweet one.

Sugaring Your Arms and Legs

For many people, leg hair tends to grow downward in the direction of the upper leg to ankle and arm hair tends to grow across the arm from inner arm to outer arm. Make sure to apply the sugar in the direction of the hair growth and remove the strip quickly in the opposite direction.

Sugaring Your Underarms

When sugaring your armpits, it's important to keep the skin taut for effective hair removal and to reduce pain. When removing the hair from your right underarm, hold your right hand behind the nape of your neck to keep the underarm skin taut. Do the same with your left hand when sugaring your left underarm. Sugaring your underarms requires two steps because the hair grows in two different directions (upward at the top nearest your upper arm and downward at the bottom which is nearest to the side of your torso).
  1. On the upper part of your underarm apply the sugar toward the elbow and remove the strip in the opposite direction in a quick motion. Pull in a motion that is parallel to your skin's surface (not up and away in a perpendicular motion).
  2. On the lower portion of the underarm (closest to the side of your torso), apply the sugar downward toward your waist and remove the strip in the opposite direction in a quick motion. As always, pull in a motion that is parallel to your skin's surface (not up and away in a perpendicular motion).

Sugaring Your Bikini/Pubic Area

  • Choose the shape you want for this area. Using a favorite bikini or underwear bottom as a template can be a great place to start.
  • Apply the sugar in the direction of the hair growth, which in this area is from outer to inner thigh for many people.
With Nair™ Spa Sugar™ Wax and a little know-how, you can achieve long lasting, smooth skin with spa-like results in the comfort of your own home. Go ahead and step out into the world as your most gorgeous self.
