Sugar wax is super easy to make and all the ingredients you need are probably already in your kitchen.
What’s so good about sugar wax:
- no ingrown hairs or skin irritation
- pain is incomparably lower than with regular waxing
- sugaring significantly reduces the number of hairs and they become much softer
- sugar wax contributes to closing the hair follicle and prevents its growth
- skin is tender and smoother
- no side effects because it contains only natural ingredients that are not sticking to the skin like regular wax.
Sugar wax is recommended for removing hair from intimate parts because the skin is very sensitive down there, as well as for removing arm hair. And here’s the sugar wax recipe.
How to Make: Sugar Wax Recipe
- 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (you can squash lemon)
- 3 tablespoons of water
- 8 tablespoons of sugar
- Mix all ingredients in a deep pot and let it cook on high heat for four to five minutes.
- When it boils, remove it from the heat and pour into a deep bowl, preferably metal one.
- Leave it to cool a little but not too much.
- Start to separate piece by piece and stretch it with fingers until it takes the shape of gum. If necessary, add a drop of water, but not more. Now that you made sugar wax, hair removal can begin!
Instructions for Sugar Waxing
Before you begin sugar waxing, clean your skin thoroughly in places you are planning to remove hairs from. Hair length should be between 4 and 6 mm or 1/8″ to 1/4″.
- Apply piece of sugar wax on the place where you want to remove the hair but make sure to apply it in the opposite direction of hair growth!
- Pull the sugar wax on your skin in the direction of hair growth, and if you did everything right – the hair has disappeared. Simple and fast, isn’t it?
- When you finish and get rid of unwanted hair, always rinse treated places with water and apply salve that suits your skin.
- Repeat sugar wax depilation two times a week at first and later once a month because by then hairs will be thin so there will be no need for such frequent removal.
Don’t store used sugar wax for the next time. Sugar wax should not be used more than once. You’ll see the first regrowth in about five days, and as the process is repeated, hairs will regrow slower and slower.
This ancient and simple method of depilation in recent years has been unjustly neglected due to the invasion of expensive devices that promise an overnight miracle. The sugar wax is getting popular again and that once again confirms that nature is our best friend.
Whether you have oily, dry or mixed skin type, this kind of depilation will suit your skin. It can also be used by women who have varicose veins and broken capillaries because it does not harm them either.
In brief, sugar waxing is recommended for everyone. The only thing you should be careful about is not to spill it on the kitchen floor because you will have a tremendous hassle detaching it.
