The ingredients of sugar and honey waxing
Sugar waxing is the guarantee of rapid, effective hair removal without burning yourself. In addition, we avoid subcutaneous hair . But like any beauty recipe, you need certain ingredients, here is the (short) list. Hop hop hop, let’s go!
– 2 glasses of powdered sugar
– 1 half a glass of water
– the juice of half a lemon
– 2 tablespoons of honey
The steps of the recipe for hair removal with sugar
– Pour the sugar into a saucepan, then the water gradually, over low heat, throughout the recipe, until the mixture becomes thick and takes a nice golden color.
– When it’s golden enough, pour a drop of caramel on a flat surface. If it is rounded and you can take it between your fingers and knead it, it means that the caramel has reached the right temperature.
– If the consistency suits you, add the juice of half a lemon to the mixture, always over low heat. And this for ten minutes.
– Finally, add the 2 tablespoons of honey and let heat. Two minutes is more than enough.
Once the recipe is finished, let this creamy dough cool down, but do not cool it too much so that it does not harden. When it is warm enough, knead it to give it enough elasticity before applying it. Your wax must be malleable enough to work between your fingers.
How to use sugar wax?
To do this, you just need to make a small ball in your hand, to work it, once it seems soft to you, apply to the area to be depilated by pressing a little to promote adhesion. Make a strip and pull against the grain with a sharp pull.
We repeat the operation until we get rid of all the unsightly hair. The same dose of paste is used several times without worry.
Note that sugar wax is used on all parts of the body.
Sugar wax keeps very well in an airtight jar. Before each use, you just need to re-heat it for a few minutes in a double boiler, or a few seconds in the microwave, being careful not to burn yourself. At the end of each of your hair removal sessions with sugar wax or any other method, consider applying an after-waxing treatment like this organic propolis oil available on Amazon (rated 4.8 / 5). It will allow you to soothe your skin and avoid possible irritation.
