Sugar waxing at home

Sugar waxing at home

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)

  1. In a pot or saucepan, boil the Lemon Juice, Water, and Sugar until it turns a golden brown.
  2. Keep a close eye on the pot and keep stirring to ensure the mixture doesn’t burn.
  3. After it turns to a golden-brown color and gets thick, which usually takes about eight minutes, take your pot off the stove.
  4. Transfer the sugar mixture to another container and let it cool to room temperature.
  5. Once your sugar is ready and cool enough to apply, sprinkle the powder onto your skin.
  6. Apply it in the opposite direction of your hair growth to ensure you will pull the hair right from the root.
  7. Rip in the same direction your hair is growing. Remember: Apply away, rip along.
  8. When your complete, rinse/cleanse your skin with warm water and apply a moisturizer.
  9. Admire your results!

Tip: If the sugar mixture becomes too hard, place it in the microwave for 10 seconds.
