Sugar Wax? Yes please! If you are someone who prefers waxing rather than shaving, you’ll love this article. There are ways to remove hair from your body naturally and in the comfort of your home, while saving money.
If you wax you know that getting the time to go do it is difficult. You have to make appointments, they are in inconvenient hours and we spent the day hiding our legs in our pants…
Well, sugar waxing is a fast, simple and painless option that will also improve your skin health and reduce irritation.
You just need sugar and lemon. It’s like a natural, economic and homemade wax.
- 2 cups of sugar
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Water (optional)
Put the juice of one lemon and two cups of sugar in a medium saucepan. The juice should completely cover the sugar. (If not, add a little water until the sugar is completely covered).
Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar is completely dissolved. When it starts boiling, reduce the heat and wait until you have a thick and gooey mixture with a soft golden color (pretty much like honey).
Remove from heat and let it cool down.
Watch it really closely because if it gets burned, you´ll have to do it all over again.
How to apply it:
This paste is just as conventional wax. Spread the mixture in the area you need to wax and -without waiting- pull it in the opposite direction of hair growth.
#Protip: For a painless wax apply baby powder prior!
After you´re done, apply a little moisturizer or aloe vera gel to sooth the skin.
If there are any wax remains, wash with warm water.
