What’s better than trying out inexpensive things which you can easily produce with stuff you already have at home? I am a sucker for new things. I like trying out different methods and techniques that can make my life easier. Life is as busy as it can be nowadays and if I can find something that is useful, easy to do and natural, I am all up for it.
Being a woman is quite difficult, without getting into too many details which everyone probably already knows, there is a lot we have to do. If you’re a woman you know the struggle of removing unwanted hair. There are a lot of different ways which you can do it, or you can always stop caring and let it grow. It really is all up to you.
However, there is one method that is used quite a lot. Sugar waxing. For all of you, that know what waxing is, you know how painful it can be. The good thing about waxing it that when you remove the unwanted hair, you don’t have to worry about it for at least 4 weeks. I have tried every method in the book, shaving, threading, hair removal cream, plucking with tweezers. I haven’t tried sugar waxing though and might I say that after hours of researching online I found out that I have been missing out. The technique is rather easy and there are no risks to it.
Everything started out one night when I was feeling adventurous and wanted to try something new. I got tired of shaving, honestly, shaving every couple of days is tiring and it gets annoying. Plucking is painful, requires a lot of time, to get every single one of those hairs one by one. Hair removal creams have chemicals in it which can contain a lot of dangers to your skin. They also have the effect of striping the hair and breaking them. Shaving will only help for a couple of days tops and the hair will grow harsher. So, trying a new method really helped me out. Here’s a recipe I used and the steps I followed:
I mixed a cup of regular white sugar (you can use brown too), I squeezed the juice out of a lemon and used two tablespoons of it, adding two tablespoons of water as well.
I placed them on the stove over medium heat, stirring non-stop. I did the process for a few minutes until the ingredients reached the wax consistency. And I let it set aside to cool down.
After it cooled down, I grabbed a wooden popsicle stick and grabbed a little bit of the mixture. Carefully I spread it to the area where I wanted to remove the hair. I took a cloth and placed it over and in a quick motion, I ripped the cloth away. The weirdest thing is that I was expecting it to hurt but the pain was barely there. My skin was left bare and soft afterward. I proceeded to do the same process until I was done.
The cleanup was the easiest thing to do. Since it’s sugar I only used warm water to wipe away the remainings. And my skin was so soft I didn’t need to use anything else afterward. I didn’t get any red spots you would normally get after waxing.
My overall experience with sugaring was excellent and I will continue to use it furthermore. The ingredients are all natural, the process was easy, the aftermath was not as messy as waxing can get. My skin was smooth and soft, the mixture is supposed to moisturize it as well.
