I have waxed my back before and I was wondering if I tried sugaring instead if it would be less likely to make me break out? I broke out really bad using the wax and I was wondering if sugaring would be a much better option?
It really should not make a difference. It may be that you need to exfoliate to keep the pores open.
I have tried both waxing and sugaring my back - both have the same effect in terms of the skin’s reaction (pimples in my case). However, I found that using a Witch Hazel gel just after waxing/sugaring and then once or twice a day for three days after greatly reduced the pimples. Hope this helps.
Also avoid scrubbing your back just after waxing and use warm or cool water to wash rather than hot water.
