For those who want to get rid of fast grown hairs and does not want to see them 3 days after getting rid of them, here’s just one of those effective beauty tips to eliminate those unwanted hairs. Waxing is the answer for you! But hey! it’s quite expensive if we go to beauty centers to have them removed through waxing, laser or whatsoever right? Shaving can’t just satisfy us! So here’s a homemade recipe to make a hair removal wax!! So easy and so cheap and you can do it at the convenience of your own home!
2 cups brown sugar
¼ cup water
¼ cup lemon juice
Pour the sugar, water and lemon juice all together in a saucepan, and heat it over a low flame. Keep stirring the mixture to avoid burning. Stir it until all the sugar has melted, and you have a thick brown liquid. To know if it’s ready, pour a drop of the mixture into a glass of water, if the drop spreads, it is not ready. You want a consistent drop. Let it cool slightly before using it. It can be stored in a heat proof container for later use.
Store it in fridge. It can be easily warmed up in the microwave.
It a natural home made wax that can be used for waxing for arms, legs, underarms, upper lips and eyebrows.
How to use
Before applying wax, make sure you apply cornstarch or baby powder to the area, as it absorbs moisture and allows the hair to be removed much more smoothly. Use cotton muslin wax strips that you can pick up from any beauty store or cut up old cotton shirts into strips to use.
Some don’t use wax strips in removing hairs. Just warm it up between your hands smushing it, snapping it apart until it’s a bit firmer than play dough. when you store it in the fridge it should be very hard. There you go! Keep visiting for more beauty tips from ladysoda!
