Learn How To Make Sugar Wax For Hair Removal In These Few Steps
With the Covid-19 induced lockdown, visits to beauticians are something of the past. Hopefully it would be something we can all go back to soon enough.
It’s no secret that unwanted hair sprouting is going to be ( or is already) a challenge. This is where sugar waxing comes in.
If you’re one those mortally scared of waxing because of the pain, then sugaring is the answer to your prayers. Not only is it less painful, it’s cheap to make too. A win win.
Sugar wax is made with just three ingredients: sugar, lemon juice, salt—so it’s free of skin-irritating chemicals and toxins.

And unlike regular wax, you let the sugar paste cool before applying, so chances of getting burned is very reduced.
Another plus is, sugar wax won’t stick to live skin cells, so it doesn’t rip off a layer of skin when you pull.This means it’s significantly less painful than traditional waxing.
Also, after sugaring, you won’t have to deal with hair growth for the next two weeks. Appealing right? So let’s get a-making.
