sugaring just might save your life...
If you’re like me and you suffer from ingrown hairs due to shaving, you might be considering new hair removal methods. After years of shaving I started to do @ home waxing. I did not like how sticky and painful the wax could be, but I did love how long the hair would stay gone from waxing. I knew there had a be a better way to remove the hair! And there was, it’s called Sugaring. Sugaring has multiple benefits that make it way better than your traditional waxing. I decided to give it a chance last year and to my surprise it worked wonderfully!
There are many benefits to sugaring! Just a few include:
1. Natural Ingredients
When I would use the wax kits, it would freak me out looking at the ingredients! Sugaring is 4 simple NATURAL ingredients that you have access to right in your kitchen. You cannot beat that.
2. Easier Clean Up
This ties into that natural ingredients. Once I had wax spill all over a shirt and carpet and it was over. After sugaring you do not have to worry about the sticky residue of the wax or all the hair in the tub after shaving!
3. Permanent Results
Permanent result in two areas. The more I have been sugar waxing (2 months now) the less hair grows back, and my arm pits are growing lighter.
But these are just a few great things about sugaring that I will get into more detail about in later entries. Todays entry will be about how I make my wax and how I sugar wax at home!
Unfortunately due to personal issues going on I was only able to sugar for a short amount of time before I picked the razor back up 🙁 BUT, I have decided to start my journey all over again so here we are.
My favorite thing about this is that it only requires a few ingredients that you can find in your kitchen!
The most important thing to remember is that trail and error is bound to be part of trying something new! So if you do this a certain way and it does not work, just make a few tweaks and see if that helps. Never give up.
What I use:
- Small sauce pan
- Wooden sticks
- Glass Jar
- Ripped Fabric
- 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Distilled Water
So you have all your supplies and you’re ready to see how it works?!
