Easy and Natural Homemade Sugar Wax!




Super simple recipe for sugar body wax.  Sugar waxing is less painful to me, and has a better result than shaving.  If you can only shave your bikini area so often due to ingrown hairs or razor burn, then you might like this option!  
You only need a few things, so let's get to it!
Items Needed:

1 medium pan
measuring cups
plastic storing container
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1/4 cup water


 Method:

Add ingredients to sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil.  It can foam quite a bit, so you really need to watch it.  Keep it at a medium high simmer for 5-8 minutes, until you see it turn golden brown.  Make sure you stir it throughout, and don't let it burn.


Then,
gently pour into your plastic container and let cool for 10 minutes at least before use.  Test the wax on the inside of your arm to make sure it isn't too hot.  The plastic container will reheat more evenly then glass.  Reheat at 10 second intervals.  It doesn't have to be very hot, just warm enough to spread.  You can spread it on with popsicle sticks or a butter knife.  I recommend getting a wax kit that contains a pre cleaner, powder for before waxing, and a post wax lotion.  This is optional, but the powder especially helps the wax only adhere to the hair which makes for less pain.  You can pull the cooled wax off by hand, or pull off right away with cloth strip.  You should be able to buy all these things at a drug or beauty store. Then just be hair and irritation free for weeks!!  I only recommend using this wax for body waxing.  It works well on underarms and bikini areas!
