MAKE YOUR OWN SUGAR WAX - BRAZILIAN SUGARING


The trick in making Brazilian Wax is getting the texture of the wax just right. But don't worry I will help you achieve a perfect wax! The advantages are many: affordable and easy to make,  easy to apply and remove, doesn't need any chemical to remove residues (just water!) and since it is 100% natural it is gentle even on the most sensitive skin!

INGREDIENTS:   
3 cups sugar
1 cup honey (organic is better) 
2 limes (or lemon) 
1 tbsp water (or more) 
microwave safe glass jar (to store)

    You may choose to make a "half recipe" the first  couple times, until you master the wax consistence.
    Combine sugar, honey and juice from 1 lime in a heavy saucepan. Mix well with a wooden spoon, then heat in medium flame. Keep stirring the mixture until all the sugar has melted and you have a thick brown liquid.  Squeeze the other lime and add the water to thin out the wax, stirring again. Remove from heat. If your lime wasn't juicy you may need more water. 
    To test the consistence, take a tiny bit out on a spoon and run cold water over it. When it cools enough to touch, it should be stretchy. You can test it on the inside of your wrist. Do this about every one or two minutes while the wax is simmering until it stretches out on your arm and pulls off easily. If it is brittle it was overcooked, if it sticks and won’t come off it’s not done yet. 
    Let it cool for five minutes before pouring in the glass jar. Make sure you do not place the jar directly on a cold surface like granite, as the temperature shock will break the glass.

    Here you can learn the waxing technique.

    3. How long does it usually have to simmer? My wax didn't turn out well the 1st time.

    4. Thank you for your post!This tutorial is fabulous! Lots of great info including soaking the wax brush in water first overnight! No one ever told me to do that before using it. It is the quickest, cheapest and efficient way to get rid of unwanted hair, however it is painful and temporary. By using this hair removal cream or Body Waxing Salon Las Vegas it helps you flaunt your skin without any unpleasant signs.

      1. Sorry to hear that! Store bought wax, usually has additives that can irritate the skin. This natural home made wax is the only one I can use.
