We all love the feeling of a smooth skin that has freshly undergone hot wax hair removal. Yet, as we all know, wax hair removal is anything but a pleasurable experience. However, the rumors out there in the beauty community claim that using sugar wax can make the experience almost painless.
Sugar Wax Hair Removal
Sugar waxing has been used to remove hair from the bodies of luscious women since 1900 BC. Back then, since sugar was only available in a few regions such as Persia, honey was used as the sugaring agent.
Sugar waxing is extremely similar to the common method of waxing. The warm sugar paste is applied to the skin and then with the help of a cotton sheet, the hair is removed from the area. The difference between the 2 techniques is that the sugar wax does not attach to the skin, making for a nearly painless hot wax hair removal.
While at the salon, sugar waxing will cost you more than the standard procedure; doing it at home is relatively easy. The wax can be made from foods that everyone has lying around their house.
A simple recipe for making sugar wax:
- 1 Cup White Sugar
- ¼ Cup Water
- ¼ Cup Lemon Juice
- Stir together in a pot. Heat the mixture on the stove until the wax has a light honey color. Let it cool for about 20 minutes. Check with a finger that the wax is not smoldering hot. Refer to the video for more details!
Getting the right consistency of the wax may take some practice, yet it is well worth the effort. Sugar wax is hypoallergenic, however, those with sensitive skin may still have a bit of irritation after the waxing. Applying an aloe vera based soothing cream after the waxing should help calm down any skin irritation.
