Shaving constantly can be really stressful and also pose a real threat to the health off your skin. Waxing is another alternative, but it can be real expensive and the hassle to get the right waxing spot can be a challenge. Persian Waxing or Sugar waxing as it is often referred to has been around since the 90’s. Sugaring is a more subtle method of waxing, costs a lot less and requires regular ingredients.
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 whole lemon
1/3 cup of water
In a bowl, mix the sugar, lemon and water together into a paste
Place a big pot on a your stove, burning on medium heat, then pour in the sugar paste
N.P (A big pot will prevent the paste from pouring out when the content starts to boil)
The paste will start to bubble and boil, stir mildly with a wooden spoon
Continue to stair until the paste looks golden brown and the consistency is a bit thick (Thicker than honey)
Once you are have the right consistency (not to thick and not to runny)
Allow to cool down for a bit then pour in a jar or a bowl and allow to cool down
How to apply
Scoop out a chunk of the sugar wax and roll into a ball with your hands
Massage the wax with your hands, then stretch it out, flatten it, then spread it on desired area
If you are using a wax strip place it flat on the wax
On the count of three, pull out the wax
You can repeat this process with the same wax a couple of times. (until it is runny and soft)
To reduce pain, apply pressure to waxed spot for a while.
