Sugar wax is quickly becoming a wonderful alternative to other hair removal options. Aren’t you tired of using your old razor and shaving cream? Tired of getting razor burn or dealing with harsh lights from laser hair removal? Most people are looking for a more comfortable and safer alternative for their hair removal.
Waxing has always been thought of as a painful hair removal option. However, body sugar isn’t a new form of hair removal. It has been around for thousands of years actually, and it is much less painful than actual wax.
The Perfect Hair Removal Option
Sugar is nothing new like we said before. This is an ancient practice that actually was used by the Egyptians as a hair removal option. They used it to remove hair in the most painless way possible. They did this because this type of wax does not cause skin irritation.
Most other wax recipes actually stick to the skin when they are pulled off and cause serious irritations, rashes, and even can tear the skin.
The amazing thing about this type of body wax is that it won’t pull the skin at all. The recipe used makes it so that when the body sugar is removed, the skin is left unharmed and the only thing that is removed is the actual hairs on your body.
Cold Sugar Wax Recipe
With this sugar wax recipe you will have a product that not only exfoliates when you use it but will start to lighten the hair follicles and actually make the amount of hair that grows back lighter every time you use it.
For this recipe you will want to use exactly one cup of sugar, one cup of honey, and a half cup of lemon juice. Making sure that you stick to this ratio is crucial. A little bit over or a little bit under will mean that you will not have the correct ratio to get the recipe right.
You will then want to melt the sugar using medium heat on the stove. Do not stir it at all. You can swirl that saucepan around slowly to mix the sugar. Once the sugar has caramelized simply add the honey and the lemon juice.
Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon preferably and continue to stir until the mixture has melted. If it is too thick you can add about a spoonful of water until it has thinned up to your satisfaction. After a few practice runs you will figure out the best consistency.
Once you have done this let it cool down and remember to store it in a container that is completely air tight and leave it in the refrigerator.
Go ahead and try this recipe yourself until you find the right balance yourself. If you want to try having this type of wax removal as an option in a salon, try our body wax specials or give us a call today to see what kind of packages we have to offer.
