My Vikini Sugaring Vs Nair - Best Hair-Removal Methods

There are many methods of hair removal. Each hair removal process has its benefits and best-use cases. However, when addressing the bikini area, you likely want to use the method that lasts the longest, is safe for sensitive skin, and is the least painful. Sugaring may be the perfect solution.

You may be thinking, 'why not just use a cream option like Nair bikini cream because it's completely painless?' And it is a cheaper option. Let's talk about the difference between Nair cream and sugaring with My Vikini.

What is Nair? And How Does It Work?

Nair is a name brand of chemical hair removal product called a depilatory. It comes in a cream, lotion, or gel spread on the skin to temporarily remove hair.

Nair uses chemical ingredients to dissolve the hair by breaking down the hair structure temporarily. However, it doesn't remove the roots as with waxing or sugaring, so hair grows back thick and fast (between one to three weeks). Additionally, the regrowth can easily cause ingrown hairs. 

Nair may be an alternative for those used to shaving because it's painless, easily accessible, and inexpensive; however, there are many potential side effects and precautions.

Because Nair is a product that uses harsh chemicals, it can cause:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Skin irritation
  • Chemical burns
  • Skin peeling or rash
  • Blisters 

My Vikini Sugaring vs. Nair

Sugaring is a hair-removal process involving a natural paste to remove hair from the root. The process is less abrasive and irritating to the skin than other hair-removal methods, including waxing. The sugaring paste consists of sugar, lemon, and water heated together to form a candy-like consistency.

The sugaring paste removes the hair from the root; because of this, the hair grows back thinner over time and is less likely to cause ingrown hairs.

Sugaring is the most effective and long-lasting hair removal process. We recommend that a trained and licensed esthetician complete the sugaring process itself. Then, 48 hours after sugaring, exfoliate and moisturize every day with the My Vikini Three-Step System to maintain healthy, smooth skin.
