Here are my three favorite homemade sugar wax recipes. And just in case you are not a fan of lemon I have included one that works without it.

Before making the recipes I’m going to share few sugar wax tips that will make your sugaring experience easier.

 

7 Sugar Wax Tips for A Perfect Recipe

 

1. For best results always use 2 parts of sugar, one part of water and one part of lemon.
2. To prevent the sugar wax getting hard too quickly you need to constantly watch it till is done.
3. Set the stove to medium until starts boiling and then to low.
4. As soon as the golden brown color (similar to honey) begins to show remove it from the stove.
5. It is more difficult to get it right the first time specially if you are a beginner. Just try again if it doesn’t work the first time.
6. Always use a heat resistant container.
7. To avoid burning your skin it is really important that you watch the sugar wax temperature. Allow the mixture to cool for at least 15-20 minutes. Always check the temperature before applying it.

So, let’s get started!

Before You Wax …

 

# Check the wax before you start to make sure is not too hot.

# Make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used. Perform a test in a small part of the skin.

# It is important to exfoliate before waxing. Do this the night before your session.

# Don’t take a shower 2 hours before waxing as this might make the skin extra sensitive.

# Don’t use if you have broken skin, a skin rush, varicose veins or are allergic to any of the ingredients.

# It won’t work is your hair is too short. For best results wait until it grows.  

 

How to Sugar Wax at Home

 

1. Use some baby powder on the area you want to wax. This will get rid of any moisture that might prevent the wax from adhering to the hair.

2. Scoop some of the sugar wax and form a mound the size of a golf ball. Apply the wax on the skin surface in the direction that your hair grows.

3. Using a popsicle stick, spread the wax evenly on the skin to achieve a thickness of about a quarter of an inch.

4. Allow the wax to settle for at least 10 seconds.

5. Hold the skin tight and quickly rip the wax off in the opposite direction of your hair growth.

6. Check for any hairs that didn’t come off and get rid of them using tweezers.

Remember you can use the same ball of sugar wax up to 3 or 4 times before discarding it.

 

Sugar Waxing Post Care Tips

 

# It is important to soothe your skin after a waxing session. This will help to prevent irritation, bumps and ingrown hairs. I recommend applying some cold pressed aloe vera gel to the post waxed skin.

# Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory properties that will keep irritation away. It is also an awesome natural moisturizer. Don’t use regular lotion or perfume on the skin after waxing.

# Avoid going out in direct sunlight immediately after waxing. Also, consider taking a day off your regular exercise routine to keep sweat off the skin.

So, there you have it!

These homemade recipes are 100% natural and good for your skin. They are also very pocket-friendly.

And one last thing, homemade sugar wax can last for months if stored covered in a cool place or in the refrigerator.
