If you’ve never tried sugar waxing or sugaring, I’d say it’s worth a try. It’s said to be a safer, low-risk option compared to traditional wax. I honestly don’t mind a traditional honey waxing or something similar, but sugaring has undisputed benefits. Here are some.
- You can make sugar wax at home with just three ingredients.
- It doesn’t burn.
- If you make a mess, it’s just sugar, lemon juice, and water, so it’s easy to clean up.
- Also, it’s easy to remove from skin and washes out of clothes and towels.
- Sugaring is suitable for short hair removal.
- It usually won’t break the hair during removal.
Sugar Wax at home
- ½ cup of Sugar
- ⅛ cup of Lemon Juice
- ⅛ cup of Water
- Powder (to absorb excess moisture before application)
- In a pot or saucepan, boil the Lemon Juice, Water, and Sugar until it turns a golden brown.
- Keep a close eye on the pot and keep stirring to ensure the mixture doesn’t burn.
- After it turns to a golden-brown color and gets thick, which usually takes about eight minutes, take your pot off the stove.
- Transfer the sugar mixture to another container and let it cool to room temperature.
- Once your sugar is ready and cool enough to apply, sprinkle the powder onto your skin.
- Apply it in the opposite direction of your hair growth to ensure you will pull the hair right from the root.
- Rip in the same direction your hair is growing. Remember: Apply away, rip along.
- When your complete, rinse/cleanse your skin with warm water and apply a moisturizer.
- Admire your results!
Tip: If the sugar mixture becomes too hard, place it in the microwave for 10 seconds.
