And as you keep doing it whenever your hair starts growing, it will cease to continue growing. But in a good and healthy way. So for example, if you are applying this method for your armpit hair. Then it will keep growing lesser until it stops growing out completely. Therefore, you will have a hairless armpit. Which will be super! Since you won’t need to worry about shaving and whatnot.
How To Make Sugar Wax
When producing the sugaring method, you need to make sure that the sugar is more than the other ingredients. So you will add two cups of sugar, a quarter cup of water and lemon juice. Pour them all into a saucepan and cook over high or medium heat. But if it’s your first time, use medium heat.
Keep stirring the mixture so that it will mix well. And so as to prevent it from getting burnt. You will see that it’s becoming sticky and brown. Immediately it starts turning brown, turns the heat off. If it becomes too brown, it will become a hard sugar was which will be more painful. And not as good in hair removal as the soft sugar was which is usually used for hair removal.
Leave the mixture to cool for 10 to 15 minutes in the saucepan. After it’s not hot anymore, you will then pour it into an airtight container. But make sure that the mixture is not cold. It’s supposed to be lukewarm when you use it. So you just need to make sure that it’s not hot anymore when you pour it into the container. Don’t use it until it becomes lukewarm. Make sure to touch it lightly first to be sure. Since if it’s still hot, it can burn your skin.
How Sugaring Is Applied
The sugar wax is to be rolled into a ball when it’s about to be applied on the skin. Moreover, it’s applied with hand gloves due to its stickiness. Hence, when applying the ball on the skin. You are to apply it in the opposite direction of your hair growth. And then you will remove it from the direction of hair growth. Which is the complete opposite of waxing?
The ball removes hair without making any damage to skin cells. As it’s not as hard and as painful as waxing. The same ball is used to remove the hair until it loses its stickiness. Wash your skin with water and towel dry. And your skin will be hairless for at least two weeks to three weeks.
