Homemade Hair Removal Wax
Mountain Standard Time
Here is a cheap, natural way to rid yourself of unwanted body hair i.e facial underarms....etc? Why not make your own sugar wax at home! Here's how.
1 cup sugar 1 cup lemon juice
Spatula Pan Stove Top Glass of water
Heat the sugar and lemon juice in your pan on medium high heat stirring occasionally. After about 15 minutes your mixture will have turned light brown and will be thickening up. Start testing your wax by letting drops of it fall into your glass of water. When the drop stays solid (hard ball stage) and sinks to the bottom of the glass, the wax is ready.
Remove it from the stove and allow it to cool until you can handle it (but it should still be very warm). Using the spatula apply a thin layer to your clean, dry skin in the direction of the hair growth. Allow the strip to cool and then grabbing an edge with your fingers pull it off quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
The first time I tried this wax it worked without papers but every time since I have had to use waxing paper (the kind you use in the kitchen)
Don't get it wet - even the slightest moisture will ruin it. This wax does not keep so use it up right away.
