At-Home Facial Hair Removal Guide
All About Sugaring…
Did you know that it is possible to create your own waxing method at home using products found in your kitchen cabinet? Sounds unbelievable, right? *why didn’t we know this during those broke teenage years?* Certain ingredients help get rid of hair strands which have overstayed their welcome and sugar is one of them. Sugaring has actually gained popularity during this quarantine ‘coz of how easy and effective it is. And if you’re worried about the pain, au contraire, it is less painful than waxing and super gentle on your skin.
A little warning though, your first time isn’t going to be all that great, but with practice, you’ll get the hang of it.
1 cup white sugar
1/8 cup lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar)
1/8 cup warm water
Add all the ingredients together in a pot and place it on the stove. Boil it and stir frequently to avoid burning. Once it starts bubbling, reduce the heat and continue stirring. Remove the pot when the mixture turns golden brown. If the consistency of your sugar paste is thick like honey, heat it a little longer until it looks like hot syrup. Transfer the mixture to another bowl and let it cool for 30 minutes, after which it should be slightly warm and easy to handle.
There isn’t much prep when it comes to this form of facial hair removal technique. Just clean your skin and pat it dry. Using a butter knife or your fingers, apply the wax against the direction of the hair and gently press it onto your skin. Once you’ve done this, get a good grip of the wax and using a fast flicking motion, pull in the direction of the hair growth. Et, voila!
