Let’s get cooking a DIY sugar wax at home
Want easy at-home hair removal?
Well, making your own sugar waxing might be a fun and inexpensive way to remove body hair at home using your stovetop or microwave.
The main ingredients for making sugar wax are lemon, water and sugar; it is a reasonably low-effort recipe list.
Fail-proof Step-by-Step Sugar Wax Recipe
Colour is crucial – “light golden” or “yellow gold” is ideal for sugar wax. It shouldn’t be dark like a treacle or clear.
Ensure the wax doesn’t go too thick by constantly checking the wax. If the wax becomes too hard, you cannot add more water to fix its consistency.
You can check the ingredients by stopping the heat, removing a small lump of paste with a stick, allowing it to cool and applying it to your arm to see if it removes your hair. If it doesn’t remove the hair, it may be too runny.
If the sugar paste is still too runny, you can cook it further to thicken it.
Is homemade sugar wax safe?
Regarding sugar wax ingredients being safe, yes, the paste is safe. This is because the paste has natural ingredients and no chemical additives.
If you wonder if homemade sugar wax is safe to use on the skin, yes, it is safe. There is no risk of burning if you allow the sugar wax to cool before applying, unlike ordinary waxing, which requires wax to be heated in a pot before applying.
The final note
The ingredient list for sugar wax is minimal, but cooking it isn’t easy-breezy. It may take you a few times to perfect it.
Follow the ingredient measurements to a tee, take it slow and watch your sugary formula closely as it cooks, and you may have some success making sugar wax at home.
