I don’t know if you have ever heard of sugaring but if not, it’s a life changer. Sugaring has its roots centuries back, it is believed that Cleopatra used this method. The good thing about sugaring is, it can be done at home with ingredients you can find in your kitchen drawers. Because they’re all necessities.  You can use if you want to wax your eyebrows, to wax your leg hair. And what’s better than being able to do this at the comfort of your own home. There’s no need to go to a beauty salon. As long as you know what you’re doing and are cautious.

While different people use different methods based on what suits them the best, sugaring ensures you don’t have any side effects, rashes, or allergies.

Sugaring is a wax which consists of sugar, water, usually other added constituents such as lemon or honey. Other products that are used to wax facial hair, might be natural but there are always added chemicals or preservatives. Whereas, this kind of sugar homemade wax has its benefits.  On top of everything, it’s a very easy recipe to do and the chances of any risks are very low.

You can use this natural homemade wax for the unwanted hair on your face. It is also moisturizing and easy to clean up afterward. All you need to do after using the sugaring method is to wash your face with clean water. The sugar that remains on your skin will dissolve when it comes in contact with the water.

Here’s a recipe you can follow to make the sugaring at your home. With ingredients that are natural, it is going to be the cheapest, easiest wax techniques you will ever try:

Brown sugar or regular white sugar – a cup

Freshly squeezed lemon juice – two tablespoons

Water – two tablespoons

The instructions:
Place the ingredients in a bowl and then over medium heat. Keep stirring for eight to ten minutes until the mixture reaches the wax consistency. After removing the bowl, wait for it to cool for a few minutes.

You need to be very careful if it’s your first time. Always start small. You can also watch YouTube tutorials, see how other people are doing it. Try and use their methods and techniques. You can see what fits you better, try to be cautious even though it’s pretty hard to mess up with this homemade wax.

Waxing is a precise method, which means you can start small and work your way through the areas where you want your hair removed. Take a wooden popsicle stick and get a small about of the sugar wax, place it on the area where you want to remove the hair. Gently press the wax down and spread it. Place a cloth over it and let it sit for a few seconds. Pull it in a quick motion and voila. If you still have hair left, just repeat the process again until they’re gone.

The only time when it isn’t suggested to use the sugaring method or any waxing technique is during your menstrual cycle. This comes due to the fact that your skin is going to be more sensitive and it will make the procedure a little painful. However, sugaring is safe and can be used not only to remove the unwanted hair on your face but your body as well.
