To make a natural hair removal sugar wax, you will need:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  1. Pour sugar, honey and water in a sauce pan and melt it until the sugar caramelizes.
  2. Squeeze the juice of  half a lemon to the sugar.
  3. Be careful the sugar will be foamy and hot, continue stirring on medium heat until the mixture has completely melted attains a golden brown color.
  4. Let the wax cool down before you use it.
  5. Transfer it to a glass jar with a lid.
To use:
  1. Dust a little baby powder or corn starch on the skin to absorb any oils so that the wax sticks a lot better to the skin making the hair removal process less painful,
  2. Apply a thin layer of the sugar mixture on the area you need to wax,
  3. Press a strip of cotton fabric or waxing strips on it, rub the fabric a few times to warm it up and pull it in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
  4. Rinse off with cold water and use a chilled aloe vera gel to avoid bumps or redness after wax.
