The sugaring technique changes the traditional wax into a completely vegan and natural sugar paste. Do you want to try it?
This is the latest hair removal technique that replaces traditional wax with a delicious sweet paste – don’t eat it! – which is sweeping through beauty salons all over the world, and can also be used at home.
WHAT IS SUGARING?
The sugaring is the technique of hair removal with sugar. It uses a candy paste made of sugar, water and lemon that is totally vegan and cruelty free, since beeswax is not used in its mixture and is suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive.
Waxing with this paste is healthier than waxing because it is made with natural ingredients. In addition, sugar is a natural exfoliate and, because it contains lemon among its components, it is a natural astringent that reduces hair growth.
SUGARING RECIPE: DARE TO PREPARE IT AT HOME
If you want to try the sugaring technique in most beauty centers that specialize in hair removal, you can do it by yourself at home. It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and you will have the mixture ready, here is the recipe.
You will need these ingredients:
- 1 cup of sugar (brown or white)
- 1 squirt of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup of water.
- Optional: a few drops of rosehip oil (recommended if you have sensitive skin).
To prepare this mixture, simply put all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until they become a thick paste. Then, allow the temperature to drop, without letting it cool down completely.
HOW TO WAX YOUR HAIR AT HOME WITH THIS TECHNIQUE: STEP BY STEP
1- After checking the temperature of the paste, be sure you have completely clean skin.
2- Place a little bit of Talcum powder in the area you want to wax and apply a thin layer of this sugar mixture. It is important that you place it in the direction of hair.
3- Then, it’s time to start mixing, always against the grain. To do this, you can help yourself with strips of waxing paper or do it by hand.
This is a simple preparation that removes hair naturally and without heat. If you can’t do it at home, make an appointment in your salon, so you can try sugaring!
